Keep Looking Up!

 

A wise man shared with me, “Sometimes God puts you on your back so you can look up.”

At times, life can show up with challenges.  The key is how to receive it – do we allow it, accept it and welcome it as the next thing to learn and experience?  Or do we resist it?

Huge advances in technology and changes and volatility in the world economy have transformed the environment we live in.  Climate change is real and we are experiencing it.

People spend a great deal of time on their cell phones, mobile devices and computers, texting and emailing.  Communication is radically different than ten years ago.  Life is radically different.  Yet the key principles never change.  They are constant and dependable.  As we give, so we receive.

People find themselves being forced to look up because they are on their backs.  The challenges may be spiritual, mental, emotional or physical.  It may concern health, family, personal relationships, work or career.

No one on planet earth gets a free ride without trials and tribulations.  We each come here to learn important lessons and to grow.  We all have our cross to bear.  We can resist, complain and do it our way or let go and go with the flow of life and infinite intelligence.

One thing for certain, challenges and problems reveal a person’s true character.  It is easy to be kind and generous in good times, when everything is going our way.  It is even more important to follow proper principles when we are on our backs, dealing with challenges.

Can you find a smile or a kind word or deed for others at your toughest times?
How do you treat yourself during challenging times?

Love and kindness touch our souls and make a difference in our lives.  It is the love and kindness we take with us when we leave this earth.  Love and kindness light the way and empower us to transcend the most difficult challenges to achieve our greatest good.

No matter what the challenge, there is always love and hope.
We may be flat on our back – and still there is a way to love, peace and freedom.

It is within our hearts.
We have so much to be thankful for.

blessings,

From Roy Eugene Davis, Studies in Truth
January 2015 issue:

Have Progressive Spiritual Growth While Skillfully Performing Duties and Accomplishing Purposes of Value

“Knowing we will be on this planet for only a few decades, we should think about why we are here and what we should do to prepare for what is next.  To delay or avoid nurturing spiritual growth by allowing attention to be distracted from important matters and neglecting metaphysical studies and meditation practice is a mistake.  Accurate knowledge of higher realities enables us to think rationally and live effectively.  Self-knowledge enables us to overcome or transcend all limitations.”

“There is a fundamental purpose of our lives.  To know it, we must understand where life comes from and where it is going, look beyond our immediate goals to what we ultimately want to accomplish and consider life’s highest potential for development.”
Paramahansa Yogananda

Awaken

 

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world.  Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”
Patanjali

 

Being present and living from our heart and essence is an incredible path and journey.  Most people go through life sleep walking and thinking they are mere human beings, actualizing a small portion of their potential.  We are much, much more.

We are spiritual beings created in the image of God with co-creative abilities.  There are infinite possibilities for each of us.  We have unlimited potential every moment.  We have the freedom of choice to focus our attention, energy and resources on whatever we choose.

We can be, do and have whatever we want in life.

What is your vision and purpose for your health, relationships and career?
What is your highest potential and greatest contribution?
Do you meditate and find the highest expression of your natural essence?
Do you have a conscious relationship with the Divine?

Health, Wealth, Love & Perfect Self-Expression!

Lincoln - complaints

 

Thoughts are things.  How we perceive life creates and attracts our reality.

Questions:
Do you enjoy the beauty of roses or complain about their thorns?
Is the glass half full or half empty?
Does the universe always support you?

Are your perceptions accurate or biased because of preferences or expectations?  Do they change moment by moment as you do?

There is a well known story about three men who spent their lives quarrying rocks.  When asked what they were doing, one replied, “Breaking rocks.”  The second said, “Earning a living.”  The third said, “Our team is building a cathedral.”

Which of the three had the most job satisfaction?

“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
Wayne Dyer

“Out of clutter, find simplicity. From discord, find harmony.  In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.”
Albert Einstein
