On Knowing…

Thought 4 Today… Thought 4 LIFE!

On Knowing…

There is good for me and I ought to have it.”-Emma Curtis Hopkins

So… This is what I Know…

The Power of the mind to know is absolutely breathtaking!

We have the power and ability… If we choose to… to Totally influence our state of Health and well-BEing, our feelings, our happiness… Every area of our life.
It is our thoughts that create our good, as well as are not so good… That which we desire, as well as that which we would rather take a pass on.

The way we respond, rather than react, to life’s everyday happenings…The challenges, as well as the joys…Determine our good that shows up in our external world.

Our perspective …how we View our past, as well as our present… frame our expectations for our future.
We have the Power…our Authentic Power from within… to process what goes on in our life. To Know our good and claim it!

Today… I invite YOU to remove from your life… From your proverbial plate… That which does not serve you…which does not nourish and nurture you.
It is then that we are provided with all the new information to program, if you will, our mind… empowering the endless possibilities that we desire to manifest and demonstrate… To experience and express in every area of our life!

BE The Source Within YOU… Now!

Have a Magnificent day…Everyday!

On Forgiveness…

Thought 4 Today…Thought 4 LIFE!

On Forgiveness…

“Never does the human soul appear so strong as when it forgoes revenge, and dares forgive an injury.” –EH Chapin

So… This is what I Know!

Forgiveness means letting go of the hurt, pain, anger, and fear that clutter our mind…That hardens our heart.
These negative… And totally unhelpful emotions keep us from being the very best we can be. They create doubt… Not dreams fulfilled. They only break… They do not build us, or anyone else up!

Only love and the forgiveness we find as a result of opening our heart will part the clouds and lift the burden of the past. Only faith, love, and forgiveness will dull the pain of any unpleasant memories we may still harbor from our past.

Today… I invite YOU to unburden your heart… to lighten your load… And to lift your spirits… By not only asking for forgiveness, but also, and equally importantly, forgiving YourSelf… and others for the hurt they may have caused you.

Remind  YourSelf that past pains can only hold on to YOU until forgiveness sets YOU free.

Of this, I AM certain!

On Living Truly…

Thought 4 Today… Thought for LIFE!

On Living Truly…

“If we live truly, we shall see Truly.” Ralph Waldo Emerson,”Self-Reliance”

We see what we want to see. We hear what we wish to hear. And… We understand that which we want to understand.

Seeing is believing!  And…when we truly see … we are seeing that which is invisible to the naked eye. We are envisioning and affirming our confidence in tomorrow by operating
utilizing the experience and expression of Faith!

Opening your mind to the possibilities… What can BE and what YOU want… Is, indeed, a state of Mind, as well as, a state of mine!

Today… I invite YOU to draw a detailed picture of how YOU want your life to look… To feel…… To smell… And to BE. Imagine the impossible… And make it possible!

Today… I invite YOU to see with your heart. The Truth then follows. Of this, I AM certain!

Yes…Try IT!  YOU just might like IT! 🙂

BE The Source Within YOU… Now!

Have a Magnificent day…Everyday!

On Spirit…

Thought 4 Today… Thought 4 LIFE!

On Spirit…

“Mind-the Thing, Spirit, Causation-is beyond, and yet not beyond, our grasp.”
Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind

Each of us is a representation… And individualization of Spirit God…Source…Universe… Itself.
Moving as Source…Universe…Spirit God In me, As me, Through me…Above me, Beneath me, Beside me, For me, & BEfore me… This is what I Know.

Rather than merely the physical realm… Material possessions which lose their meaning… It is that of Spirit that really counts! What we are goes beyond the physical… Beyond that which we can see. Our Spirit is the essence of who we are as a person. Our Spirit is the light that shines from within… That which houses the love of life, attitudes…Our sense of well-BEing… Our vision for the best of the best in every area of our life… Our vision for the best of the best for our planet!

Today… I invite YOU to nourish your Spirit. To elevate your Spirit by forming your own particular relationship withSource…Spirit God… To strengthen and bless YOU through all times… Good times, and not so good times! Faith is the key to that relationship… And prayer is what gets you there!

Today… I invite YOU to lift the Spirit of another. To wear a smile… To laugh and sing out loud…To look in the mirror and say, “I love you”, to YourSelf...As well as, to another, each and every day. Today… I invite YOU to follow your heart… For that is where your light shines brightly… For YOU, as well as, others! Of this, I AM certain!

BE The Source Within YOU… Now!

Remember… Have a Magnificent Day… Everyday!
Blessings!

On Life…

“Things are as bad and as good as they seem. There’s no need to add anything extra.” -Pema Chodron

So…This is what I Know!

Our lives are like seasons. We are subject to seasons… Just like every other living thing on the planet. We go through the growth of spring, the flowering of summer, the shedding of autumn harvest… And the stillness in dormancy of winter. However, our seasons are within us… They are internal.

All of our internal seasons… Whether it be Joy or Self-doubt feelings… Are necessary in the process where we grow and mature. What is no longer serving us is shed and diminished so that the new may emerge and blossom for us.

Our personal… Internal… seasons are triggered by various happenings. Some external event…perhaps, a death, divorce, or other challenging loss may plummet us into a deep winter season within us. How long we remain in that winter season usually is defined by what it takes to find our way out. That is what makes this Life Journey a challenge…as well as, a pleasurable adventure!

This is when it is time to trust that we will grow in ways we need to… And find the answers we seek… Within us!

Today… I invite YOU to know and trust that even when we are in our winter season… And challenged with feelings of despair or struggle… Not knowing when or how winter will subside… That Spring will soon come again!

BE The Source Within YOU…Now!

Have a Magnificent Day… Everyday!
Blessings & Happy Weekend!

On Happiness…

Thought 4 Today…Thought 4 LIFE!

On Happiness…

The really happy person is the one who can enjoy the scenery, even when they have to take a detour. ”  –Sir James Jeans

If we choose to …happiness is found everywhere that we look!

Happiness is found in the here and now… In the people that touch our lives, and whose lives we touch! Happiness is found in the body… How we feel… in our thoughts… And in the spirit which we live today… Even with all its imperfections… And especially with it’s uniqueness. Alive in our hearts, happiness asks only to be recognized… To be celebrated… And, especially, to be valued. Our happiness shines from within us.

Happiness is totally, and Unequivocally in our control… That is where peace of mind comes in! It’s like turning on a light to illuminate a darkened room. Feelings of bliss and joy are ours when we choose to turn on our inner light… Which is forever charged and ready to shine… So long as we choose to let it shine!

Today… I invite YOU to BE Happy!

Whether it be with a hug… with a run on the beach…smiling at your kids, and all those you love…With roses and a candlelight dinner… Or with looking at your lover… And her beauty from within!

Here’s the secret to finding lasting happiness. Happiness is seeing the invisible… With that which cannot be seen by the naked eye… That which is our essence, and lives in our very soul.

Today I invite…YOU to count your blessings! For it is there that you’ll find blessings in disguise! Of this, I AM certain!

BE The Source Within YOU…Now!

On Gentleness…

Thought 4 Today…Thought 4 LIFE!

On Gentleness…

“There is nothing stronger in the world than gentleness.” -Han Suyin

Having just returned from my visit back East to see my family, I have spent most of the time with my precious grandson, JP…formally, Baby James. Through our adventures and escapades, I found myself asking him to, “BE Gentle!” Yes… “Be gentle”… With your toys… With Harry and Nash (the dogs), with going up and down the stairs… And, especially, with Siti (that would be me…grandma in Arabic).
Regardless of age, gender… Yes, even boys can be gentle… Political persuasion, food groups of choice, or favorite football team, the art of being gentle knows no limits! Although the body and the mind may sometimes feel inclined to not be gentle… To shout, rather then see the strength in silence…our Spiritual Power…our Authentic Power
from within need not flex any muscle to demonstrate even the greatest strength.

As I practice gentleness with JP… Encouraging him to do the same with himself, with me… with others, provides me with an even deeper respect for the wonder and goodness, as well as the temporariness of all our relationships. Especially, this time with JP… I fully realize The present… That whatever particular moment we happen to be experiencing together will never be repeated in just the same way again. That realization… That declaration moves me into an even more gentle presence… A Sacredness! Of this… I AM certain!

Gentleness… That tender touch, those kind words and gestures, a true soft-spokenness… All indicating a Consciousness of BEing present and caring! That is what our planet needs in order that each and everyone of us may feel and exude the love and power within us… Encouraging the love and power of others …that we collectively may live as, first and foremost, the Spiritual Beings that we are.

Today… I invite YOU to practice BEing more gentle in all that YOU do… In all whom YOU are!
For it is then that YOU may truly know the blessing that YOU are… And all the blessings that surround YOU!

YES…Of this…I AM certain!

BE The Source Within YOU…Now!

On Friendship…

Thought 4 Today…Thought 4 LIFE!

On Friendship…

“Think of the whole world as your friend, but you must also be the friend of the whole world.” -Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind

So… This is what I Know!

We are not solitary creatures.
Barbra Streisand spoke volumes when she sang, “People who need people are The luckiest people in the world”.

Friends satisfy our need to be part of a group… With supportive and nurturing… Like-minded and like-hearted people surrounding us.

We want to align and share with a caring person …lending support… where we feel understood… Our sense of well-BEing is strengthened… We then Experience and express wholeness!

Today… I invite YOU to think about who your true friends are. Who is on your team?  Who is in your tribe?
As well… Who do YOU lend support to?

Let your True friends know that you love them… That you cherish them!

And while you are at it… Love and cherish YourSelf… For it is then that we become the best support system to others, as well as, OurSelves. It is then that we find Safe Haven from …and in…our every day storms.

Always know in your heart… That you are not alone! Of this, I AM certain!

On Love…

On Love…

“ You can never establish a personal relationship without opening up your own heart. ” -Paul Tournier

So… This is what I Know!

As you gain wisdom with years, you come to understand that Love is not something given to you. Rather, you give Love to YourSelf …when you let it in and open your heart to embrace the essence of Life. The reason we are here is to Love …and to be Loved in return!

Today… I invite YOU to Remember to always follow your heart. You will only regret the times you have not. Of this, I AM certain!

We are Love’s seeds… The foundation for Self-acceptance through which Love grows in all times and in all ways!!!

BE The Source Within YOU…Now!
