LIVING YOUR BELIEFS
Im sure that like most of us you too have a set of personal beliefs that you live by.Or at least try to.It has to be that way or we all would be living a very chaotic life!So whether we consciously make our thoughts turn into our "way" of living, or unconsciously allow our thoughts to rule, I think we should take note of what we are living by and with.I think many of us would be surprised to find out that we aren't really as attuned to our inner selves as we would like to be. It's way much easier to just react to things as they happen than it is to try and control our thoughts on a daily basis. At least it seems that way to me.And often times the things we live by are not truly our own but merely reflections of what we have been taught and shown by others who claim to know the "way" to living a fulfilled life.I personally believe that each of us must take control of our every thought and make sure we are not just reacting to others.Take a really close look at the events in your life right now and then see if these events are just random or if they are a consequence of your own inner thoughts and beliefs.Believe me, its really harder than one realizes to take an HONEST look at their belief system than one would suppose.Part of the reason for this is that no one actually likes to admit that they are responsibile for whatever it is that befalls them. I once read somewhere this quote:The hardest path I have discovered is the path that leads me back to myself. I love that quote and believe it to be true. In closing I would like to share a couple of quotes with you. The first one is from Florence Scovel Shinn who stated:"Man(people) manifests, on any plane, the sum total of his subconscious beliefs." And the other one is from the Science of Mind magazine as follows:The Law of Mind obeys the orders that are given It whether we are conscious or unconscious that such orders are being given. I sincerely hope you will think about this and then decide to take a closer look at your "beingness" and then decide to really gain control once more of that precious mind you now possess! And as always while you have a free moment why not do a little something nice for someone. Right now, right here. I bless all of you and send thoughts of pure love, peace, and kindness to you and yours.
