Right thinking brings peace. When we find ourselves in difficulty, our salvation consists in knowing the Truth about it. When we realize the Truth, even to a small extent, the condition begins to heal. Peace of mind is the first and the greatest gift that a human being can receive, and it is only to be obtained by the realization of truth. Peace of mind is not only the greatest blessing in itself, but it brings many other prizes into our lives. For instance, peace of mindsets energy free in the subconscious, and enables us to do many things which otherwise would be beyond us. It heals the body; it allows new ideas to come through from Divine Mind; and, indeed, it may be said to be the hallmark of understanding. ~Emmet Fox
Opportunity lets you put your foot inside the door of success, but it doesn’t break the door down for you.
Opportunities are not windfalls. Winning a sweepstake makes you instantly rich; encountering an opportunity means you will have to go to work. When you have attuned your mind to recognize opportunities, you will understand that most often they involve the exploitation of some potential, such as providing a new or better service, streamlining production, or reaching a new market. This is why the habit of the initiative is so important. You must be prepared to act as soon as you recognize an opportunity. The action may be simply further investigation, or it may be making an instant sale. Most often, however, an opportunity takes time and perseverance to develop
Live each day as if it were your last, and you’ll develop a keen respect for opportunity.
If you had only one more day on this earth, how much sharper your senses would be. The beauty of nature, the simple pleasures of life, would be indescribably wonderful, and every moment would present an opportunity to spend quality time with your family and strengthen relationships with friends, acquaintances, and business associates. Every thought would be laser-sharp in that highly focused state. Well, today is the last day on earth for today’s opportunities. Don’t let them pass you by.
~Wallace D. Watts
I found life’s answers in my room; The fan said be cool. The roof said aim high. The window said see the world. The clock said every minute is precious. The mirror said reflect before you act. The calendar said be up to date. The door said push hard for your goals & the carpet said kneel down and pray.
I cannot shun the past because it contains information that is useful to script future goals. Looking back into the opaque window of reductive retrospect, what essential opportunities exist today that beckon one to seek with unrestrained enthusiasm? What iridescent signals flare from our conceptual self that if we heedlessly ignore their luminous summons, such deliberate acts of omission will suture the apex of our souls, relegating us to the dreaded curse of mucking along in an ordinary life stalled out by our overweening fear of estrangement?
There are certain key tasks in which we must attain at least some degree of mastery in this life if we are not to waste time.
- Making personal contact with God.
- Healing & regenerating our own bodies – demonstrating health. Getting control of ourselves and finding our True Place.
- Learning to handle other people both wisely and justly.
- Perfecting a technique for getting direct personal inspiration for a general or specific purpose.
- Letting go of the past completely.
- Planning the future definitely & intelligently.
To have made some real progress in each of these points even though we are still far short of mastery is true success. Of course, we shall all advance farther in some of these directions than in others, but some progress must be made in each of them.
Man is here to develop his soul. To become all that he can possibly be, he must be self-reliant, & rise above a consciousness of being directed, ordered about & being told what to do; and until this realization, man will struggle. ~Emmet Fox
We come into this world and we are taught that life is a process of attainments. Or the collection of attainments. But I have since discovered that life is a process of rising above in the moments. The river wants to flow downhill or the wave wants to take you under, but you instead sit on a rock or surf the top of that wave. We essentially all have to be mermaids, every day, to live this life. There is a constant flow of water current: going up and going down. You go up to be happy.
“We are not born ignorant, nor are we born stupid. We are just strategically kept from remembering who we are. We are made stupid by education and hypnosis. We are made ignorant by entertainment designed to program our brains to obey. We are made criminals for seeking truth by leaders who gain power by blatantly feeding us fear & lies under the name of truth. All done in an attempt to keep our minds from ever breaking out of the comfort and familiarity of the ignorance we were spoon-fed from infancy. Anything to keep us from waking up to our power.”
Life may not be pretty but it’s always beautiful. We may only see the ugliness on the surface. The shit that only the world chooses to notice. But, if we dig deep, if we get to the heart of life, where there’s no pain or fear, where we can just be who we are and love freely without judgement, it’s really beautiful.”
