“The possession of knowledge, unless accompanied by the manifestation and expression in action, is like the hoarding of precious metals; a vain and foolish thing. The Law of Use is universal, and they who violates it suffers by reason of their conflict with natural forces.”
It gets difficult sometimes to stay focused on goals and objectives that we set out to complete. Things come up that are sometimes hard to get past, but it is important to always come back to and focus on thoughts and actions that bring about positive emotions and results. This is always great to say, but when something goes wrong, it is not always that simple to just not think about it.
The objective here isn’t to not think about the negatives. The goal is to hold the thoughts, the knowing of what you hold in a reverence, what you want to accomplish, create, do or desire in the forefront of your mind at all times. You have to choose to think about things that make you happy and keep you motivated.
Whatever your goals are, whatever it is that you set out to do, whatever brings you joy, keep it on your mind while you go through your days. That single moment that made you smile, that bite of something delicious, the embrace of a loved one, the genuine laughter of a child, the smell of the ocean and the sound of the endless line of waves coming ashore, thinking of things that bring about joy and relaxation all the time can only bring about more of the like. This is the hardest thing in the world to do for some people, but no matter how difficult it may be or seem, keeping ourselves in a positive state of mind is the only way to thrive in this time and place.
Knowing is a step past belief. I truly believe people are good and desire to be happy. But, I know as much as people may desire to be happy, most do not practice will over themselves to create the life they want. You are the only one that can make that happen for yourself. As great as it could be, nobody is going to show up and do everything for you.
Know what it is you must do to get what you want, and do it. You can do amazing things. It is a fact. Know it. Affirm the positive to yourself daily and focus on the life you want to experience and you can bring it about.
But… you have to choose to.
