A Universal Truth… Gratitude Unfolded


Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.

Marcus Aurelius

The Philosopher’s Corner

A New Frontier Awaits. As a child… even to this day, I look to the stars and dream my dreams. This week will launch a new generation in space exploration, and truly, today’s quotes reverberate an underlying universal truth: The Sky is the Limit.

But why does humanity so often delimit itself. Why do we keep ourselves grounded when spirit can elevate the essence of our soul to new heights. This is a true problem for the tenets of psychology, philosophy, and the spiritual traditions to focus upon

Two decades ago, a book entitled The Secret became a worldwide phenomenon. It’s philosophy is simple, Dream It… Believe It… Achieve It. There are of course more steps to this philosophy; some I explore in much more depth within the tenets of this blog. But the foundation is always the same, create something that communicates between the mind and heart axis. Create a dream and then have faith (believe) in its capacity to lift you to new heights. I have seen this work in business, in personal endeavors, even in changing crappy attitudes. I am truly grateful to have experienced this, as well as having been invited by others to experience their joys in undertaking this process.

In today’s inspiration, I explore two quotes from two giants of our human capacity to find strength in the powers the universe affords us. As Ralph Waldo Emerson stated, if you make a decision, the universe will conspire with an equal amount of conviction to your own the powers needed to create the reality you seek. That is where the foundation of true strength rests. As Emperor Marcus Aurelius stated, our true power exists in the control we have over our mind and not the environment. When we use its natural strength to this end, the decisions we make become the reality we enjoy in the here and now.

With love, prayers, and gratitude for all of you. Believe… Achieve… Advance Confidently in the Direction of Your Dreams.
