Living Your Dreams
Are you stuck in a self-sabotaging rut, possibly anxiety ridden, and consumed with negative self-talk? Do you wonder if you'll ever realize what you really want? And in desperation, question "Why is it taking so long?"
Difficult relationships, never quite realizing the success you desire, having way too many tasks on your to do list and feeling like you seldom finish what you start?
An important point to remember is:
When you feel sad, lonely, depressed, doubtful, broke, sick, or scared, it somehow seems that you've always been sad, lonely, depressed, doubtful, broke, sick and scared.
The same is often true when you feel happy, really happy, and you feel that you'll always be happy.
Through living your life, you have identified many aspects of what you like and dislike, and it is important to remember that none of those things you dislike can affect your experience without focused attention. Everyone has the freedom to choose what they give their attention to, and therefore what they choose to experience.
Whenever you feel like a powerless captive of some condition-thought, clinging onto a negative perception and giving “false power” strength such as worry, fear, anger, self-loathing, self-pity . . . stop the stinkin’ thinkin’. All these negative states are a useless waste of thought energy that saps our joy, buries our potential, and ruins our lives whenever we embrace their empty promise of empowerment. These thoughts are disempowering and can lead to failures and dis-ease.
By contrast, real power comes by way of knowing that we already possess everything we need to succeed in any moment. And knowing that dreams never fit when we first imagine them, helps us be more patient in the process. We grow into our dreams, like a seed planted in the soil. It sprouts, it grows, and soon it needs to be pruned and transplanted into a bigger pot because it's become so large.
Let’s examine this important idea.
We’ve all seen what happens when — due to “unscheduled changes”, “unplanned circumstances”— our power source is suddenly unplugged. We either collapse into powerlessness, or scramble around frantically searching for ways to feel in control and empowered. Either way, we remain a captive of these reactions.
Real power lifts us above challenging circumstances; it enables us to move past fears that want to keep us stuck in a rut and cast off stinkin’ thinkin’ thoughts about the past, today, and tomorrow.
Real power is the quiet but certain understanding that everything that comes to us works for the good of us, no matter what it is. Every experience is a teacher, and every situation is an opportunity to grow from. Open your eyes, go deeper than the obvious to see the blessings and you will find them!
And when other people make choices that at first negatively impact your experience, they remain only by your continuing to give attention to them. There are many situations, attitudes, lifestyles—even food choices—that are not in your best interest to participate with. Recognize them as being a thought, nothing more, nothing less, and thoughts can be shifted in an instant to change feelings from sad to glad. Why is being glad so important? When was the last time you worked really hard to accomplish a goal when you felt bad? Emotions matter!
