Observe how goals always come first, and then you come into the past of that projected future, and put in the required steps! You target to excel in your exams (the effect) and thus you study (the cause.) And when your goal or intent is strong, when you are being the effect, the causes happen more easily! View positive thinking and visualization in these terms. You are being the effect in feeling, thinking, speaking and emoting from the end-result having already happened- and thus does the cause come about!
A BOX OF CHOCOLATE CAN GIVE US A SUBTLE MESSAGE!
There is a subtle difference in being all-accepting ….and in being jaded or indifferent !
In indifference nothing matters; in acceptance everything is… fine… embraced!
“Don’t worry, be happy.”
Suddenly everybody’s singing this song, and there is much talk about a change in world wide consciousness ushering in a new dimension. And perhaps you look around and wonder, or even scoff, but by understanding what is really meant, you can instead add to this happiness quotient rather than to the doubts and worry.
Life, even our very contemporary life and enlightenment are not mutually exclusive states. And this to me is true spirituality- something that includes and not excludes my day-to- day life! Something that blends with, and indeed optimizes my humanity and its purposes and desires, rather than opposing, suffocating and suppressing them! Thereby deeply fulfilled do we extend the same to ‘others’ around us and extend from self to selves to the Godself within!
We often think in terms of Gods creating us; but in truth it is we who create our gods! As humans, we sense our purest qualities, but unable to accept them as ‘self’, we view them outside us initially…and call these our Gods and Masters. It is actually vision of Self – our highest ideas of Self encoded in our very Dna- but unable to claim these within us, we project them onto a ‘god’ outside.
