Our chief want is someone who will inspire us to be what we know we could be.Ralph Waldo Emerson
Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results.Willie Nelson
A Father’s Guide to Wisdom
To act with the intent of inspiring is a vocational calling. But as those wise people know, we frequently get lost in the valley, forgetting to smell the roses underneath our feet. Ouch! But, what can we do about this trend?
The human plight towards consciousness is one of good intent. But as it matures into its nature, it gets clouded with delusions of grandeur, thinking itself that it knows, as God does, the quality of the reality it creates. The journey of consciousness is individual by the story we create but collective by nature.
Sit back and dream. Remember those days when your mind would race, filled with a growing sense of wonderment for all the beauty nature afforded you? Remember the freedom present when there were no external or even self-imposed deadlines, where an ant or a goose could captivate your attention for hours? Simple, isn’t it? Why did we ever leave in the first place?
As the story of Genesis foretells, we all fall into consciousness. Original sin; to know as God does what is good or bad, holy or evil. This form of knowledge is dualistic and represents the plight of adult maturation. But how do we engage this form of being to the highest potential, what Emerson calls inspiration, and Nelson refers to as positive thoughts?
Got Hope? Got a Dream? To live with conscious intent is to engage all elements of the psyche, bridging the natural gaps present with more positive states of engagement.
Namaste. With prayers and blessings, my friends, I wish you well on your journey to believe, achieve, and advance confidently in the direction of your dreams.
