Like attracts like. Hate brings hate and all the ills that follow in its wake. Envy and fear and worry attract discord and disease. If you want health, happiness, in your life, if you are seeking riches and success, attune your thoughts to these. BLESS the circumstances that surround you. Bless and praise those who come in contact with you. Bless even the difficulties you meet, for by blessing them, you can change them from discordant conditions to favourable ones, you can speed up their rate of activity to where they will bring you good instead of evil.
I found this so interesting, many times that ‘because’ hinders us from doing so much!
When something says to you that you cannot demonstrate “because” – treat the because. When you think, I cannot demonstrate because I have not enough understanding – treat for understanding. When you think, I cannot treat because I have a headache – treat the headache. When you think, I cannot demonstrate because I am full of doubts – treat the doubts. When you think I cannot demonstrate because it is now too late – treat against the time illusion. When you think, I cannot demonstrate this thing because of my age – treat your age belief. When you think, I cannot demonstrate because someone else will hinder me – treat the belief in a power other than God. No matter what name the because may give itself, it is still your belief in limitation. Be loyal to God and know that He and He alone has all power. Treat the because. ~ Emmet Fox
“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’
