Hate, love, apathy, are a few of the words we use to describe our emotional attachment to people or our reaction to an event or object in our lives. The person these strong feelings are concentrated on will remain relatively unaffected by the emotions carried in the heart of another. Our interactions with those around us provide them a view of the emotions we harbor. Even so the only person really affected by either a positive or negative attitude is the one harboring the sentiment. The emotion and thought life are powerful tools which when properly controlled can provide personal happiness to the possessor while diffusing a spirit of joy to all around. When the emotional life is allowed to feed unrestrained on a diet of negative emotions the spirit diffused is morose and apathetic while at the same time the physical body begins to show signs of badness within.
We can choose what emotions we attach to the events in our life. There is a choice here. You can choose the long term emotions attached to any given event or person affecting your life. The death of a parent will carry an emotional bill that must be paid, but the event itself is an empty slate which you will choose to fill with your personal perceptions and emotions. You choose how you will react to any given event. The emotions attached to them are colored by past experiences.
To live above the fray of emotional overload is to live in each moment as it occurs. Learn to say what needs to be said, now. Do well the work you find to do each day. Treat each person you meet with courtesy and respect. Let yesterday go, leave tomorrow alone. Today is where you need to live.
The Father has not given you the cares of tomorrow today. Anticipating tomorrow’s problems today is called worry. Worry is a sin. The Father says tomorrow belongs to him. He will provide for tomorrow’s needs tomorrow. Today is where you live, work, play, and love. Stop looking past today’s blessings.
Be with the people you are with. Hear the words they are saying. No. Stop and really listen to what they are saying. Turn off the chatter in your head. Shut off all the filters you use to process peoples words. Look at the person speaking to you, see their eyes, and hear their words. Respond with the words your heart is giving in answer.
Discover how to bless each person you meet. Let the soul that presses you for their needs have all you are and you will find out just how unlimited you can be. Hold all you own in an open hand toward the father. Allow him to use every part of your world in service to others and you will find out just how limitless your resources truly are. The more you give the more you have to give.
- Today is my life
- Tomorrow is my Dream
- Yesterday my lesson book
I will love all parts of me. I will step into tomorrow unafraid. I will live my life today. I will learn from yesterday. Never be afraid. You are not alone. Never borrow tomorrow’s Cares. That is stealing. Never give up.
Don’t hold on to tightly. If you do you cannot give or receive. All you are and have will die without circulation and renewal. Let your life flow. Don’t ever hold back, that is creating blockage in your spirit. Speak your heart in love and you will never be wrong. Say the words your mouth is holding and your soul will rest in peace.
- Allow life to flow through your being and out your hands, and you will never be sick.
- We are needy because we fear being needy.
- We are poor because we are afraid of coming to want.
- We are lonely because we fear rejection.
- We are small minded because we are afraid of change.
- We and tired because we are afraid to let go of yesterday and live in today.
There is no peace in living in yesterday. History cannot be changed. You cannot undo the past you can only learn from it and move on. Your peace will come when you change today by living here now.
Forgive yourself for being human. Accept the gifts from yesterday by learning their lessons. Letting yesterday’s events be exactly what they are, have been, and will always be, your life. We all have one, a life that is, enjoy it now.
- Today is my day.
- Today I own all I am.
- Today I will rise above every trial and hardship.
- Today I will live.
