Life is a series of doors. Fear or love determines what is on the other side of these doors. Sometimes the creator will not allow us to open doors if we are not ready to see it, to experience it in our life. If we cannot manage what we have now, how can we manage more. The story of the talents from the Bible, says all we need to know. For he that hath much, more is given and he that has little, all is taken. We need to handle what we have if we expect more. If we have little money, manage it well and more will be added. If our lives our not full of love, we are allowing fear to creep in. Fill our homes with love and the feelings of joy and abundance and there will be no room for fear. Jesus said how can I fill a cup that is full.
Be teachable, be flexible and know that we have to abandon the foundation of right and wrong. For this foundation is a foundation rooted in judgment and judgment fosters a presence of fear and anger. This is the most difficult concept of our transition to who we want to be. If we believe in a creator, we should know that judgment is not ours, it is not our burden, it is not our cross. This life is an experience that we will have for eternity, once our spirit leaves this body. Do we want to carry anger that damages our soul into the afterlife.
In the book “The Power” we learn to practice the rule of 51% percent. Break the day down into minutes and focus at least half of each minute on feeling love, gratitude, joy and peace. If we can fill 51% of our day with these positive things, we will begin to see a change into who we want to be, we will begin to be the change we are looking for. The baggage of our past can be overwhelming if we do not break it down in to smaller pieces. How do we eat an elephant? One bite at a time. How do we overcome years of poor influences and poor decisions? Moment by moment. Win this moment. Fill 51% of this moment with peace, joy, love, gratitude and forgiveness.
The results will come quickly, but we have to remain vigilant for the demons of the past will not go quietly, and will sometimes pretend to die, and sneek back into our lives when we are not aware. When something happens today that makes us react negatively, and something will, say “okay bad vibe, you have 28 seconds left and then I am moving on”. Each minute is a choice, each minute is that door. Fill our minutes with good thoughts and those doors will reveal wonders when opened. Not convinced? Try it for a day. One day, not allowing others to steal your joy, may convict you to a life of happiness. Get convicted and open that door with our eyes wide open, how could we possibly regret it? That’s a rhetorical question, so do not judge it:).
