Creating Ideal Surroundings

We all believed, not so very long ago, that the circumstances in which each individual was placed were produced by inevitable fate, and that the individual himself could not change them, but would have to remain where he was until something in his favor happened from external sources. What was to cause that something to happen we did not know, nor did we give the matter much thought. We believed more or less in chance and luck and had no definite conception of the underlying laws of things. But now many of us have changed our minds, as we have received a great deal of new light on this most important subject. The many, however, are still in the old belief; they are ignorant of the fact that man can create his own destiny, and that fate, circumstances and environments are but the products of man himself, acting alone, or in association with others. But this is the fact, and it can be scientifically demonstrated by anyone under any circumstance.

Phenomenal Friday-The Chicken And The Eagle!

This is my submission to Debbie’s Forgiving Friday series, where she writes about and invite others to share their thoughts on Forgiveness, Self-Love and Personal Growth.
It’s the last Friday of the year! It snowed heavily in my neighbourhood this morning and it was a challenge to roll out of bed because I was a bit melancholy that Christmas came and went without a kiss goodbye to its favourite fan! It disappeared gently into the good night at the stroke of Mid-Night December 25th and now the wait begins. Continue reading

Use That Broom!

 

 

A GOOD housekeeper sees to it that dust and dirt do not accumulate in nooks and corners and on shelves. Periodically, the house is gone over and given a thorough cleaning.

Too often in our spiritual lives, we allow negative things to accumulate in the corners of our minds. We tackle the obvious problems as they come along, but allow the small difficulties to pile up in the corners, or perhaps push them down into the subconscious, and try to forget about them.

For instance, if you are faced with a problem of health or finance, you will get to work on that immediately, but if on the other hand, someone has injured you, instead of handling it spiritually at the time, you probably tuck it away in your mind, and perhaps pack in a little resentment along with it.

And so with many problems of a like nature, such as envy, jealousy, false pride, and various faults of character. These should be dealt with as they arise. But in any case, if you have allowed them to accumulate, now is the accepted time to sweep them out of the corners where they have piled up.

If someone has injured you, forgive him now, and be done with it. Or if you have injured someone else, ask God’s forgiveness, and claim His blessing on the other person as well as on yourself. Take care of the other difficulties in like manner.

Be a good housekeeper. Do not sweep these negative things “under the carpet” for they will only be there to plague you later on. Clean out every nook and corner—and God will make you worthy of greater accomplishments in the future, because your house will be founded upon the rock of Truth, and nothing else.

We are rarely taught the magic of believing in ourselves. instead, we are taught that we should limit our abilities, our dreams and our goals. We are taught that the tangible is just as far as we can see, anything beyond our sight is unattainable.
