Energy

Do not continue to provide more energy to your fears. Instead, take the energy from your fears and turn it toward positive purpose.

There is nothing to be gained by giving additional energy to your anger. Take the energy from your anger, and direct it toward creative, fulfilling action.

Whatever you focus upon, whether it is positive or negative, you provide with additional energy. Whether you love it or hate it, whether you long for it or fear it, your focus and attention will make it more powerful in your life.

There can be large amounts of energy in your fears, your angers, and your frustrations. The thing to do with all that negative energy is not to add to it, but to apply it toward your most positive purposes and most treasured desires.

If you truly wish to avoid something, be careful not to nourish it with your focus and your energy. Find something else to move toward, and keep that positive goal at the center of your awareness.

In each moment, you can choose where to focus your attention and your energy. Seek to keep your focus as positive as possible, and you'll move steadily in the direction of your dreams.
-- Ralph Marston


so we have been hearing a lot about the Secret since its been on Oprah (you know how that woman does, can make you or break you...LOL...gotta love O)

but the point is, that if you live in fear, or you carry around anger all the time, then that's what you life will produce...reasons to be fearful, reasons to be anger

We all have a choice in terms of how we want to live our lives and what type of energy that we want to put out there into the universe...so I say to you, be positive, think positive, look at life as an opportunity to make the BEST out of everything...

No it isn't always easy, and yes it can sometimes be scary...but you know if you are going to live, live it to the fullest...Keep GOD first and TRUST in HIM and HIS will for your life...

Side note: don't be afraid of love, and of living...we all have career moves to make and goals to accomplish, but if you don't stop and smile sometimes, enjoy the flowers and the sun...then once you make that VP position and you go home at night to just you, then what...

Life is so much more than making it to the top, so much more than the almighty dollar, so much more than material things and being recognized by the world...so much more than being afraid of the unknowns, like loving someone...like loving yourself, like honestly being happy....

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly-unconditionally, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile.

Life is about the journey...never loose sight of that...

I feel you TC. I am just not feeling it today. Today is a Blah Day for me, I don't want to think or do. I will keep your words in mind for when I am clear and able to focus, they are some good words.

@shai-truth be told, today is a VERY Blah day for me as well...just a lot of things going through my head...so these words are for me too...I just really wanted to share them with those around me...in order to get your mind on track you got to say, write, take it all in...
I hope you feel better soon...
Peace

I really like this post. Sometimes I feel like my lie is going to pass me by if I don't get up and make some changes and make things happen for myself. Thanks and Happy Easter!

Your words are not a lie!

People tend to advise others to rely solely on God and faith; but neglect to mention/acknowledge that you must always have faith in yourself as well. As much as a person believes God’s path is the correct path, believe that God walks with you as well. And he wants us to step out on faith and think out of the box.

My first time here, by way of jus.

I so needed this reminder today. Thank you for this post today.

Teej said...

This is good shit here TC. I fully endorse and condone this. ;)

@southern_lady-I think we all go through moments where we feel like that, but you HAVE to make the most out of your life...and when you feel like its slipping past you...take a moment or two, breathe, and then keep going

@awotm-that's the KEY right there...stepping out on FAITH...you got to have FAITH...not only IN Jehovah GOD but in yourself as well...that's IT right there...you got to have FAITH in the positive...

@deepnthought-GLAD that you came past...and I am truly glad that you enjoyed your stay...please come by again...

@teej-thank ya kindly sir!

All i think we all can use this type of reminder from time to time...I know that i needed to re-read my own words this morning...
peace ya'll
