Aloha this wonderful morning. The picture out my window is astounding. It’s impossible for me to NOT believe that there is something bigger than me out there when I look at this beautiful world.
Day 2 of The Seven Day Mental Diet was OK – I’m cutting myself some slack…
It’s funny that I decided to start The Seven Day Mental Diet on the day that I just wrote huge checks to the IRS. Paying taxes is NOT my favorite thing, I might go so far as to say I have disdain for this activity. Only because I am not so sure that these funds are going where they should. I don’t pay much attention to the news but I hear that members of Congress and Senators seem to take more than their fair share. When I write a check I like to know where the dough going and the checks I just wrote are a mystery to me.
Not being negative about that was tricky, but I think I did it.
During this challenge of attempting to be positive all the time, I am realizing my back slide of the last few months. The Go90Grow launch & a subsequent consulting job kept me busy and I slacked off. Things seemed to be going so well my subconscious decided I didn’t have to do the work anymore. HA! Wrong!!!
Generally I would read and meditate every morning and I have fallen off of that practice. 🙁 Boy does it make a difference. So back on the meditation wagon. Can’t recommend it enough even if it’s just for 5 minutes – although I shoot for 15 of total silent meditation. It’s amazing what will happen.
One must believe there is a higher power in the universe, right. I mean can you really think human beings are the top of the food chain, no there IS a higher power. Something is out there right? Ya, for me there totally is. I know I am not the one in control. AND if I contact and harness the power for good, to be in service by controlling my thoughts, and then put that above all else. I can do anything with my life that I choose.
Divine Power, Higher Power, Divine Energy, Universal Energy, God, Father… For me God is just easier.
Over the years I have tried and tried to come into contact with this Power and I have found the only real way is through quiet, earnest meditation. Emmet Fox, the amazing author I was turned onto by my wonderful husband, Mark Januszewski, The World’s Laziest Networker, tells me today to say “I believe in the power of God, I believe God is interested in me and that I can contact that Power to comfort me, heal me, enlighten me, purify me. I believe God is working through me to solve all.
This helps me with The Seven Day Mental Diet.
Aloha and Mahalo from Kauai,
