Guy Finley, End the Dark Cycle of Discontentment
Much of our time is spent identifying the so-called cause of our discontented states, and the rest of our time is taken up trying to change our unwanted situations into what we imagine will better suit our pleasure. Of course this description puts a kind of positive spin on what amounts to one's never-ending whirl of wishes, but the facts are that these dreams of a better time to come do not originate with our True Self.
Carolyn Evers, Going Within, Part Two
I was born into the Roman Catholic Church and was educated in parochial schools, taught by nuns, and as a child I applied myself to my catechism classes. I considered myself a devout follower. The story seemed simple enough. We were born in sin and Jeshua came to redeem us from our sins by dying on the cross and rising from the dead. He did this to demonstrate his victory over death as he was the son of God and had this power.
Chuck Gallozzi, Finding Silence
Dag Hammerskj ld (1905 ~ 1961) said, "We all have within us a center of stillness surrounded by silence." Yet, for some, silence and stillness are elusive. Caught up in the hustle and bustle of daily life, they find it difficult to drown out the clamor swirling about them. Even if they can retreat to a quiet spot, there is still the endless chatter in their minds to deal with.
Beca Lewis, Mist-Perception
As we drove to work one morning we were celebrating the fact that it was a beautiful sunny spring day. Suddenly it wasn’t. Within seconds we were surrounded by fog. We could barely see 20 feet in front of us. Cars slowed down, car lights flicked on, and everyone became very alert and careful as they continued to drive. Within minutes we had driven out of the fog, and once again it was a beautiful sunny spring day.
Victtor Da Ponte, Your Mind Has A Mind Of Its Own
Isn’t it amazing how powerful our minds are – when we tell ourselves we want do one thing, but end up doing the opposite – all because our mind refused to cooperate with us. Have you ever considered that you mind may have its own agenda? One thing is for sure, t wants to keep you alive and it wants to try and create the happiness that you, the soul, is trying to experience.
Pam Garcy, "I don't want to disappoint anyone."
This is Part 2 of a multi-part article by Pam Garcy.
Are you trapped by a demand that you place upon on yourself that you must not disappoint anyone? This belief can stop you from adopting the "mindset of walking" that I discussed in the previous issue.
Steve Wickham, Starting With the Man, Or Woman, In the Mirror
When we think about it, there are many things that cause us frustration in this life- the way the world is and how everything works, and indeed, how we perceive it to be falling apart. To live without hope; that's just an obvious default. It's easy to fall into this thinking. We only have to watch the News habitually.
Judith Albright, Living a Limitless Life: Your Choice
Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror and asked "Where is my life going?" Have you ever thought "Why am I here," or "What am I supposed to be doing?" Even more important, have you ever asked "What do I really want to be doing?" If you are not doing what you want, why aren't you?
Robert Darby, The Three Top Personal Development Tools
Our tools represent capability and therefore power. Personal development has an array of tools specially designed to work with the unique characteristics of human behavior and here I look at three of the most effective and powerful of these tools: meditation, visualization and affirmation.
Gabriella Kortsch, Where Are You Now?
Asking yourself where am I now at intervals throughout your day in order to discover not so much where you are physically, but where you have gone in your mind will begin to show you how frequently you are not present here and now.
Charles F. Haanel, The Master Key System, Part Eleven
Your life is governed by law - by actual, immutable principles that never vary. Law is in operation at all times; in all places. Fixed laws underlie all human actions. For this reason, men who control giant industries are enabled to determine with absolute precision just what percentage of every hundred thousand people will respond to any given set of conditions.
