Superman, Captain America, Spider-Man The list goes on, a figment of someone’s imagination. Although growing up I liked watching these heroes on TV for entertainment only. I kept them at far away.
This morning I realized that the past five blogs I’ve written have been on Kindness and Gratitude.
And so it shall be! These two laws have made me realize that moving forward are my two major purposes in my life. And they have become my new Super Hero’s to follow on my continued Journey.
Our thoughts become our feelings and what we choose to move on, whether good or bad you must choose. Although I choose good thoughts the bad ones are always near. So near, they scare me. Usually, in the early morning hours, they wake me up and keep me from falling back to sleep.
It seems when I’m asleep the negative thoughts linger in my mind ready to destroy the pleasant surrounding environment I’m creating. And my Journey becomes questionable again.
I will share my experience with the past five weeks while living with gratitude and kindness leading my way and hope you too can free yourself if something is pulling you under.
Some of us think we’re already living with gratitude and kindness I thought I was, but I had no clue I had to do more of it, to get to my current state of mind.
The state of mind of no return!
I have to concentrate completely, on giving more kindness in order to receive it and that was pretty hard because I have lived with anger for a very, very, long time and I just realized this recently.
In order for me to give more kindness I had to be ready to release what I no longer wanted; “ANGER” I realized that anger has been keeping me from getting what I truly wanted in my life, which is to be happier and have more peace of mind.
I always thought that if I made more money I would be very, very happy. I kept thinking I had to get somewhere else, a better place than I am right now. I thought making more money would get me to that place.
I truly know this not to be true anymore. I have made plenty of money several times in my life and the emotions are always there. They are as real as real can be and are ready to destroy me.
I kept thinking if I made more money I would be so happy that nothing can get in my way of happiness and peace of mind.
It is a lie! And it will always be a lie.
I have a terrific life, a wonderful loving family, married to my astounding wife and living in the vacation capital of the world Tampa Bay Florida, because we chose to live here. It was no coincidence.
I just learned that a lot of people living now think life is made of coincidence. It may be true to some extent but not true! At least it wasn’t when I was growing up.
Your life is made of what you think about all day long. This I did not write. It has been written, and re-written and re-written; “Ask and You shall receive.” But you must ask intelligently and ask more and more times.
Ho yes! And you need to be specific on what you’re asking for, and then believe you will someday have it. If you’re only asking for more money, you may or may not receive it. Most likely not!
My secret weapon these past five weeks has been number 1) the index cards, with number 2) the repetition of the readings of this MKMMA Course.
In the first couple of weeks, it was overwhelming with all the materials that were thrown at us but I decided to grab what I could and didn’t care about all of it. Do the required assignments in an appealing way and don’t be negative.
With that said? I’ve learned how to give more thanks in advance and became more grateful in the process.
By writing down everything I become grateful for on these cards I have given myself a massive amount of leverage.
Whenever a negative thought enters my mind I grab a group of cards and read them out loud or in silence and usually I can get rid of just about any negative thought that pops up. Sometimes it may take a while. But it’s working!
I’ve been experimenting with this now for the past five weeks and I’m finally convinced.
No turning back! My Journey may not be one of a superhero but with this journey, I give more of myself and it won’t matter what I give, what matters is my awareness of the chance to give and the sincerity of my giving.
Here is the field goal!
I memorized several of my favorite cards as my weapons against the negative thoughts that wake me up in the early hours. And when they appear I repeat them in my mind 20, 30, 40 times however long it takes to kill off negative intruders.
Here are some of my favorites: I didn’t invent them I gathered them from the materials from this course.
“I greet this day with love in my heart, for this is the greatest gift in my life.”
“I give thanks for the Faith and Hope to Jesus Christ my savior, who is at work in me every day.”
“I am grateful to know that the love flowing through me serves as a constant encouragement.”
“I am grateful to know that I release all resentment with love”
“I forgive everyone for everything and anything”
“I free myself with forgiveness and thus open the channel of infinite love.”
My Journey continues with a much positive outlook than in the past couple of years.
