SWITCH FROM REACTION TO ACTION
When you pull a weed from the ground, if you do not plant a flower in its place, another weed will grow.
This is why you must take control of your thoughts, words and actions. An idle mind is the devils playground.
Each morning sew into the fabric of your mind your vision, your inspiration, your direction, your purpose.
Do not allow the small things to come to fill your mind and actions. If you work on low priorities you'll sabotage your self worth.
Stay focussed on your vision, your intention.
Remember that you go in the direction of your dominant thoughts.
If you allow the world around you to determine your thoughts you will end up subordinate and dependent on others for your vision and fulfilment.
This will never work.
If you follow the thoughts and feelings of others you end up living their vision.
Find your own loving thoughts, find your direction, your dreams and your vision and stay focussed on the thoughts that will cause that.
You know that "GOT TO" and "SHOULD DO" thoughts are reactions. Become immune.
Inspiration is when the inner voice speaks louder than the outer voices. Become inspired so that the voice of your heart speaks louder than the voices of your emotions.
Remember your purpose in life.
Link all things to your purpose and you will ACT in life rather than react.
If you find yourself in reaction, feeling emotional, the best solution is silence.
Emptiness is silence. Emptiness is love.
Emptiness is not wanting, needing or anything.
Emptiness is abundance and yet, there's no awareness of good or bad.
Emptiness is inspiration - no words are necessary.
Do this in silence before the day begins and try, by touching nature, to connect to this state throughout the day.
Start the day with your inner practice.
Inner silence is a morning practice.
Don't wait for the day to spin you before you move to inner silence.
Then it's too late.
Instead start the day with inner silence. And fill your heart and mind with the thoughts that will cause your heart and mind to be as one.
The single most important difference between success and failure in love, business and life is to understand the difference between Love and Emotion.
Emotion is made up of lopsided thoughts. Love is made up of the synthesis of all emotion. More simply, love is a balanced thought, emotion is an unbalanced thought. I have consulted to people for 35 years now. All human suffering comes from, is caused by, can be prevented by, understanding the difference between love and emotion. I have consulted to many entrepreneurs who do not have any big problems. The key to their amazing success is the awareness of the difference between love (they call it reality) and emotion. Do you know the difference between love and emotion? You might say "I love ice-cream" but really what you mean is that you "really like it." That's not the love we're talking about. You might say "I love my partner" but if they have an affair you might not love them. That's not the love we're talking about. To learn the love we are talking about go down to the beach, pick up a rock, examine it, feel it then throw it. That's the love we're talking about.
The highest state of consciousness is love to. Simply that means two options are acceptable. You see the two sides of yourself, your partner, your project, your life, your year, your looks and therefore you don't swing with the monkey. Look how small the pendulum swings at the top. Can you see how much energy and vitality you save by balancing your mind? It also helps in love too.
