The Importance of Contrast

It’s important to expose yourself to contrast.

I’m speaking in terms of minding not to over expose your brain to negative sh**.

Too much of that would have you thinking the whole world going to hell.

With the Internet customizing your search results based on your preference, social media just reaffirms your set of beliefs.

Whether they are valid or not.

So watch more positive stuff.

Read more inspiring stuff.

Like more uplifting posts.

Reshare more motivational shandis.

Manipulate the system in your favor.

Acknowledge the shit show you might be in, but lean in more to the life enriching ideology.

Especially when you realize what’s truly important in your life.

Beautifully explained in the movie I was chatting about with my sister, About Time.

Your Thoughts Matter

I came across this IG update about how thought affects matter.

As if to imply that thought is a higher concentration of matter, that is influential to that degree.

At a scientific level, it’s proven that prayer changes things.

If a person learns to harness this, think of the endless possibilities of what this could mean for you.

“Dead Or Alive, You Are Coming With Me.”

Been having a lot of pent up anger of late.

It compounds.

Lack of sleep.

Haven’t been reading a good book for almost a week now.

Missing out on my daily meditations.

Haven’t been rewriting my goals.

Not been listening to motivational audios.

Skipping motivational & educational videos.

It’s been months since I’ve been visualizing my success.

I haven’t been exercising as much as I did.

Been poorly taking my vitamins and supplements.

All things happening daily, gradually, to a point where I feel exhausted physically and mentally.

Dropping my emotional intelligence.

I’m in the business of where losing your cool would cost you your job.

That love and hate relationship of being concerned of losing the job you hate.

Where now I incorrectly blame others for my lack of self mastery.

You attract what you are.

Happiness is an inside job.

Won’t happen overnight, but you can change your direction overnight.

The rest is just consistency on your part.

Change begins when you take 100% responsibility of what’s happening around you.

To you.

Through you.

“Don’t Die With Your Music Still In You” ~ @DrWayneWDyer

Just a bit bummed about the passing of the good Dr Wanye Dyer.

But after counseling with my #joy @Phetheni we came to the understanding that he played his part in this world.

And it’s up to us to pay forward his teachings to leave where ever we are better than how we found it.

I love you.

Thank you.

You Will Never Experince Positive Things By Feeling Negative Feelings

You can’t be reading in-depth things like news articles or forwarded emails that make you feel bad & then turn around & expect positive things in your life.

You can’t be involved in conversations full of negativity and then acting all surprised when positive things don’t come your way.

Never fool yourself into thinking that when you feel negative feelings you can expect positive results.

You are breaking the Law of Cause & Effect when you think that way.

When you feel bad for a long enough time you attract the bad.

When you feel good for a long enough time you attract the good.

Sometimes the negativity you feel can’t be helped.

But surrounding yourself with negative people and negative stories or things only makes the negativity you might be feeling at the time bigger.

Eliminate or at least limit the things that make you feel bad…and increase the things that make you feel good.

And one of the things that could make you feel good is this EFT thing.

I wrote about it here.

Thank you.

I love you.

What’s On Your Mind?

That was what Facebook keeps asking me every time I log on.

I never took much interest in it until a friend of mine noticed that it does not ask what’s on your mind anymore, but has been modified to “What’s going on?”

The “loss” of the old that is to be now replaced by the new gave more clarity and emphasis to the “loss.”

It was at that point that I began to see social networking’s enticing pull to update your status in a different light.

I’m sure you’ve read Think & Grow Rich by Dr. Napoleon Hill –

(if you haven’t then this book would make for an extremely helpful Christmas present for you or someone you care for – Search for it @ Amazon.com for details)

– as this life improving book goes into practical suggestions on how to use what’s on your mind to the best use possible.

As in whatever it is that’s not only on your mind but whatever it is that DOMINATES your mind, will come to produce itself in your life.

Whether you prefer it to happen or fear it happening for you.

How IN HEAVEN does that work?! you might ask.

Have you ever noticed how whenever you think of something, your mind gives you more suggestions that come close to what you are currently thinking of?

Take, for instance, when you have something in your mind that worries you.

When it is said that you worry yourself sick what has happened is that your mind kept feeding things to your mind that are in harmony with what you are currently thinking about.

That’s why it is suggested you think about possible solutions and not focus on the possible hinders to the solutions your minds comes up with.

No matter how ridiculous these solutions might be for you at first, the idea behind this creative process is to get the ball rolling, allowing your mind to expand and continue coming up with suggestions that will begin to improve your current circumstances.

There’s something you should keep in mind, pun unintended, and that how thoughts compound on top of one another.

This is how a simple thing like feeling gratitude for things like:

» the clothes you are wearing…

» then following it up with being grateful for the various of luxuries that electricity is giving you…

» then following that up with how fortunate you are to have someone you love & someone how loves you back (conditional love, no?)…

…could have an incredible effect on your mind, which in turn will have an improved effect on your mood.

This all because you have deliberately taken control of what YOU choose to dominate your mind, which in this case happens to be Gratitude.

Energy flows where attention goes.

So Facebook, & your current life results if anything else, should serve as a reminder of what is on your mind.

Because, if the above is true, then what you are living is the effect of what was caused by your thinking.

Therefore in order to save yourself from experiencing things you would prefer not to experience, fill your mind with the things you would like to experience.

HANG OUT MORE with people you would like to be more like.

As a footnote, your mind does not recognize the word “not.”

As in if you say, “I do not what such and such.”

What your mind registers is you saying, “I do want such and such.”

So refrain from being an “I Do Not” kind of person and instead practice and enjoy being an “I DO” kind of person.

You attract what you think about the most, whether you want the thing or not.

I love you.

Thank you.

PS: Be careful of “counter-attractions.” That is, thinking about something you want, all the while feeling the lack of it.

You need to pull it in with your positive emotions.

Your emotions either pull in that which you want in your life (these will be your good feeling emotions) or push that which you want away (these being your bad feeling emotions).

So feel good in your thinking.

Or at the least feel an improve feeling in your thinking and things that make you feel good will find their way to you.

PPS: You would be under served if I did not bring to your attention the link that will direct you to the site that is offering you incredible book Think and Grow Rich I mentioned to you earlier.

Happy Holidays to you and the people that you love and care about.
