Have a Magnificent Day!

Have a Magnificent Day!

The Window

posted by The MEGA Coach

a friend shared this story with me……

Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room.  One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs.  His bed was next to the room’s only window.  The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back. 

The men talked for hours on end.  They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation.  Every afternoon when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.  The man in the other bed began to live for those one-hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside.

The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake.  Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats.  Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every colour and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.   

As the man by the window described all this in exquisite detail, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine the picturesque scene.  One warm afternoon the man by the window described a parade passing by.  Although the other man couldn’t hear the band — he could see it.  In his mind’s eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.

Days and weeks passed.  One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep.  She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.  As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window.  The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.  Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside.

He strained to slowly turn to look out the window beside the bed.  It faced a blank wall.  The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window. The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall. She said, “Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you.”

Epilogue: There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations.  Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is doubled.   If you want to feel rich, just count all the things you have that money can’t buy.  The origin of this letter is unknown.  Just forward it to your friends to whom you wish good luck. 

People will forget what you said.  People will forget what you did.  But people will never forget how you made them feel.

It Is Always Darkest Just Before The Dawn

posted by The MEGA Coach

During your toughest times and greatest challenges you discover more about your essence and potential.  It is during these times you can find your true connection with the Higher Power.

Your challenges and life lessons give you an opportunity to see the value of following proper principles.  It is during these times when you discover their true value.

Such times empower you to look deeper within yourself.
They push you beyond your comfort zones.

Breakthroughs take you to another level that you thought was not possible.
Miracles do happen.  You just need to acknowledge them.

What seems impossible is impossible only because of your current perspective.
Just beyond that perspective is the chance to discover a higher level.

What challenges you, improves you.
Whatever challenges you to the extreme can also lead you into a breakthrough.

Challenges do not build character, they reveal character!

You must go beyond your preferences and blind spots to see clearly what is.
Your ego is not usually happy to support this.

As difficult and burdensome as they may be, obstacles do not hold you back.
Your own unwillingness and resistance to move forward is what holds you back.

You have the strength to decide what to focus your energy and resources on.
You can be strong in any way you choose to be strong.

This moment presents an opportunity, no matter what challenges appear.
Focus on what you can do, with what you have, where you are.

Follow your vision and stay on purpose!

You are never given a dream in life without the power to make it come true.
However, you may have to work for it

Guidelines to Enlightenment & Success

posted by The MEGA Coach

From Roy Eugene Davis:

The thoughts you habitually think, your mental attitudes and emotional states, reactions to events, personal relationships and actions are chosen by you.  How you think and behave determines your existing circumstances and those you will experience in the near and distant future.  If you want any aspect of your life to be improved, you have only to exercise your freedom of choice and decisively act in accord with your choices.

Choose to be emotionally mature.  Assume responsibility for your thoughts, actions and circumstances.  Refuse to allow mental confusion, emotional unrest or psychological conflicts to dominate your awareness.  Do not let debilitating habits dissipate your vital forces, weaken your health, diminish your financial (or other) resources, mar worthwhile relationships or interfere with the efficient accomplishments of your meaningful purposes.

Be optimistic, cheerful and calmly energetic.  Optimistic people are always healthier, happier, more successful and live longer than people who are pessimistic.  Cultivate only wholesome, life-enhancing thoughts, feelings, behaviors and relationships.  Be aware of your true nature in relationship to the Infinite.  Nurture awareness of the presence of God within and around you.  Assume and express the characteristics and qualities you want to have.

“Remember that you belong to no one, and no one belongs to you.  Reflect that someday you will have to leave this world, so make the acquaintance of God now.  It is only because of delusion that you perceive yourself as a physical body.  Meditate unceasingly to realize your real, divine nature.”

Acknowledge Your True Source

posted by The MEGA Coach

The outside world can be challenging, it can be insanity!

There is only one solution.  It is always the solution…..look to God and acknowledge your Source.  The answer lies within us.  The way to peace and love and freedom is in our own hearts God’s give each of us these gifts.  We must honor it and follow proper principles.

People make situations so complicated when they focus on money, power and greed instead of following the Golden Rule.

Until we all learn to live together, we will rip each other apart and tear each other down.  There are enough natural resources in the world for everyone.  All we must do is properly distribute them.  We must share and take care of each other.

Out of chaos comes order.  This upheaval is an opportunity for Divine Restoration of Truth, Balance & Harmony.  This is a time for prayer, meditation and truth.

“Your highest spiritual good prevails when you are always conscious of your true nature as an immortal, spiritual being in relationship with the Infinite. At the innermost level of your being you are whole, pure, serene and knowledgeable. Allow your innate qualities and capacities to emerge and be fully actualized.”

From Roy Eugene Davis – www.csa-davis.org:

Maintain a positive and optimistic attitude.
Know that your good is looking for you as much or more than you are looking for your good.

“Our good comes to us from within our own being.  God is the fountainhead of all our good.”

“My good cannot be withheld from me.  My good cannot be taken from me.  No person, thing or event can keep that from me which the universe has for me now.  The universe has unlimited good for me and I accept it, receive it and experience it now.”
