You Need Singleness of Purpose

""But in searching for the essence of anything, you also strive for specific major objectives, with singleness of purpose. And thus with each successful step forward you get closer and closer to the essence of that which you seek.  The essence of success in any man's life depends on his living philosophy."

-- W. Clement Stone

"This business of hozho. The way I understand it ... I'll use an example. Terrible drought, crops dead, sheep dying. Spring dried out. No water. The Hopi, or the Christian, maybe the Moslem, they pray for rain. The Navajo has the proper ceremony done to restore himself to harmony with the drought. You see what I mean. The system is designed to recognize what's beyond human power to change, and then to change the human's attitude to be content with the inevitable."

-- in a Sacred Clowns, by Tony Hillerman

"It doesn't much signify whom one marries, for one is sure to find out the next morning that it was someone else."

So You Want More in Life

"Do you want more in your life? More love? More happiness? More money? More satisfaction? Then explore how you can BE more.

In the Delfin Knowledge System, Leslie Fieger advises, "You can have more when you are willing to give more. You must begin this process by giving more to yourself. Give yourself more time; give yourself more attention; give yourself more love; give yourself more of what you want. Then decide how to offer the more that you are (and have) to the world and you will receive even more back in return."

How The Law of Attraction Really Works

"When you instruct your brain to look for the things you want, you will begin to see them.  In fact, the object of your desire has probably always existed around you, but your mind and eyes weren't open to SEEING it.  In reality, this is how the Law of Attraction really works.  It is not the mysterious, esoteric voodoo it sometimes sounds like."

-- Darren Hardy

"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment."

-- Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."

Looking into the Benefits of Betrayal

"When we don't know who we are -- or if we are afraid to be who we are -- we betray ourselves. We pretend to be who we think we are. Our self image is made up of our experiences, desires and other people's ideas and expectations of us.  Maintaining this false self is a betrayal of ourselves. In all deep spiritual journeys, there is the experience of betrayal.

Betrayal always tells us to adjust our life to be more authentic. What we identify with is all important.

There are large betrayals (e.g., your partner leaving you) and small betrayals (e.g., disappointments). They are all experiences of being wounded for the purpose of breaking down the defenses of the personality. When we allow the wounding and accept the betrayals as divine gifts, we greatly benefit."

-- John Robson

Positive Expectations Create Miracles

-- Pat Mesiti

Start Giving Now

-- Susan Jeffers

"To be tested is good. The challenged life may be the best therapist."

Be Accountable In Your Life

"What holds you back from being all that you are?

In your journal, list at least 5 things that hold you back.

Now review your answers. Have you blamed people or factors outside of yourself?

It's important to understand that ALL obstructions are rooted in our internal blocks. Even the problems that appear to be outside of us are only reflecting back to us problems we have inside. Once we address our inner issues, the outer problems disappear.

Be personally accountable for everything in your life and watch your perspectives shift. We claim our power when we accept responsibility for our lives."

-- John Robson

Those Who Have Children

"Those who have children can become masters of patience, endurance, and steadfastness, because children will test you at every turn. "The way to make our children patient and loving is to be that way ourselves."

-- Eknath Easwaran

"Faced with a child (or a person of any age, for that matter) who is angry or rebellious? Consider the guidance from Vimala McClure:

To discover what my child needed, a deep, yielding receptivity was vital. The temptation is to become more and more rigid, but the more you do, the less you understand. When faced with a child who is testing your resolve, relax and yield.

As a parent, the frustration of not knowing how to fill a need that cannot be articulated can be overwhelming. Often we direct the rage that stems from that frustration toward the child, which serves to distance us even further, making it impossible for the child to open up to us. To get to this type of receptivity, a practice of conscious relaxation is a must."

-- John Robson

The Subconscious Mind That Give You Power

"Never use such expressions as "I can't afford it" or "I can't do this."  Your subconscious mind takes you at your word. It sees to it that you do not have the money or the ability to do what you want to do.  Affirm, "I can do all things through the power of my subconscious mind.""

-- Joseph Murphy

"We are no longer puppets being manipulated by outside powerful forces; we become the powerful force ourselves."

-— Brian Tracy

-- Henry Ward Beecher

Law of Giving Activate Law of Karma

"Through your actions in the Law of Giving you activate the Law of Karma. You create good karma, and good karma makes everything in life easy. You notice that you don?'t have to expend a lot of effort to fulfill your desires, which automatically leads to an understanding of the Law of Least Effort.

Fulfilling your desires with effortless ease makes it easy for you to practice the Law of Detachment."

-- Deepak Chopra

"Soul cannot exist when our connections in life remain superficial. An experience of soul requires that we take time to be fully present to the details of our lives.  Explore what happens when you take the time to STOP and PAY ATTENTION.

The Reason We Are in This Life

"No one is perfect. No matter how spiritual, clever or rich individuals may be, they are not perfect. This is an imperfect world, and we are part of that world. We, too, are imperfect.

-- Thomas L. Pauley and Penelope J. Pauley

The Gardener of Your Mind

"A wonderful way to begin getting to know the two functions of your mind is to think of it as a garden. You are the gardener.

As you sow in your subconscious mind, so shall you reap in your body and environment."

"Life can seem very dark at times, but just hang in there, the light will begin to shine again.  You may not know how it will happened exactly, but simply trust.  Just because you can't figure out exactly how to get out of your situation right now, it doesn't mean things won't turn around."

-- M. Scott Peck

Where are you not good enough, not worthy enough?
How willing are you to receive?"

Have Belief in Your Own Mind

"All your experiences, events, conditions, and acts are produced by your subconscious mind in reaction to your thoughts.

At that point you will move onward, upward, and Godward."

-- Joseph Murphy

"I then remembered why I avoid the 'news,' if that's what you want to call it. Our 'news' is a misnomer, and it's more like 'the ongoing train wreck you can tune in to at any time when you want to divert yourself from your purpose and your happiness... lose your faith in humanity... and go from feeling like things are pretty good to feeling like the world is going to sh*t and why bother going on, I mean really?'"

You Create Your Life Result

"You get in life what you create.  Expectation drives the creative process.  What do you expect?  You expect whatever it is you're thinking about.  Your thought process, the conversation in your head, is at the base of the results you create in life.  So the question is, What are you thinking about?"

-- Darren Hardy

Ability To Think Had Greater Value

"Remember that the ability to think is of much greater value than the ability to memorize facts. Use your mind to create and develop ideas, to find new and better ways to do things. Ask yourself "Am I using my mental ability to make history or am I using it merely to record history made by others?"

-- David Joseph Schwartz, Ph.D.

Our beliefs create our reality. If we wish to live happy, healthy lives, it's vital that we feed our minds healthy, nourishing material.
