Be The Best, Especially When They Are Not Looking

I saw this cool thing while browsing the UFC videos on facebook.

There was a backstage interview they did.

Where a current fighter was giving props to a retired mma fighter.

Sometimes what you do inspires others.

Even when you’re not noticing that you are.

These days people only do good if someone is recording a video of them doing so.

It’s quite sad.

As if to say if noone sees the good I’m doing, then what’s the point.

Got to get those likes, you see?

So my plea is to do good.

Especially when no one’s looking.

Try to be the best version of yourself.

Whether there’s a phone recording you or not.

Try to be the best version of yourself, even if your current environment is trying to choke that out of you.

Looking At The Same Landscape, Differently

I am at work and I have come to believe that this is my training ground.

And how the day panes out will depend entirely on how I create the circumstances within my 7 hours of work period.

I can go as far as say that everything at work is what IS.

Neither is it wrong or right it just is.

Things get really exciting when I allow my environment to influence me, instead of having it the other way around.

There is this book I am reading and it states that all that I am receiving, is what I have created through the thoughts, words, deeds I am constantly repeating.

And these creations that I am exposed to are just physical manifestations of the thoughts, words, deeds that I am “vibrating” in.

It says this is a form of vibration – thinking, words, actions – which all matter is constantly sending out.

In biblical terms this could be called a prayer.

And there is a verse that says “ask and you shall receive.”

And this “receiving” comes to me in the form of the circumstances I am experiencing right now.

What I should stop doing is getting pissed off at the things I am attracting in my life because that is like getting pissed off that God is answering my prayers.

What I should do is acknowledge that so-and-so is really getting under my skin now but instead of feeling like bashing her head in with the closest office chair that I can find,I should choose what part of myself I choose to bring forth.

Another way I can deal with this is to be thankful for the lessons of self discipline or patients or faith she is teaching me for example.

I vibrate or pray “unconsciously” for a thing to appear, and when it shows up I start throwing my toys out the cot?

See that would be me calling out for more things to rant and rave over, instead I should rather be grateful for the experience because it has allowed me to have a reference of choosing the complete opposite of it.

Being in an Attitude of Gratitude saves lives, and in my case it saves jobs…but then again there is no way I will get rich sticking to it as the only source of income I am receiving.

But that’s another topic all together.

That brings me to another something I read somewhere that I am where I am right now because I wanted to be here whether I realise this or not.

It got me thinking.

Does that mean the fact that I hate being here and how angry I am of the things that have everything to do with work only makes me experience more of it?

As if to say all the emotions I put into the images related to my work environment would only return back to me the images I am feeding the subconscious.

A cycle I will continue to experience everyday which I can only escape if I write out a crystal clear, detailed description of an ideal I would rather want to experience.

Then use my tools of creation – thought, word, and deed/action – into working on the progressive realisation of this preferred way of life.

It’s so simple, basic.

I never realised how easy this was until I wrote the above paragraph. It has a new meaning to me now.

So, ja, I must think and grow rich out of the circumstances I do not like and leaning towards the ones I bring to life through help from the Divine.

I am deeply grateful for this process of creating.

This way of living.

[Musa laughs to himself]

I mean if I wasn’t grateful for this life in its entirety how else could I experience a “better life for all.”

I just pray that I live out what has been written here in this space and leave it not to collect dust like the rest of the things I write, heaven…it’s about time hey?

And I figure one could also use this in his private life as well.
