trying to recreate an event from the past is useless. This is now. Create a new experience.
Sentiment is usually a short cut to unhappiness and failure. It is more deadly than poison gas, more cruel than the Inquisition, more subtle than self-love.
Sentiment really means pretending. It means making believe that an emotion that is really dead is still alive. It means pretending that something is fine or joyous or worthwhile, when in fact it is none of these things. Thus it means a waste of time, a waste of the soul substance that is lavished upon a lie. Worst of all, sentiment shuts us off from the realization of good in the present moment.
Sentiment usually pretends that some happiness is lost beyond recall, or else it persuades us to worship an unreal abstraction of some kind on the ground that actual conditions are not worth caring about.
Live in the present and let the dead past bury its dead. No good thing that ever existed is out of reach when you understand the spiritual nature of Being. See to it that today and tomorrow are filled with beauty and joy, and this you can do through Treatment (prayer). Remember that people never sentimentalize over present good; they enjoy it, and thereby glorify God. When they sentimentalize, it is always for something supposedly out of reach.
No good experience is out of your reach because God Himself is with you.
Emmet Fox, Find And Use Your Inner Power
I took action this morning: I worked out, showered, went to trader Joe’s, and then went on the job interview. Then I went to the school and played the harp: The studies, Concerto in B flat Major, Bird on a Wire, Flower Duet, The Campfire and Minuet in E flat.
My purpose in life: to bring peace either through conflict resolution, playing the harp, healing others through prayer, healing myself, forgiving and working for the good of the community and paying taxes and giving, rather than getting. To help myself and others make money, to not be anxious and to make ’em laugh!
One of the easiest ways to begin determining what you truly want is to ask a friend to help you make an “I Wants” list. Have the friend continually ask, “What do you want? What do you want?” for 10-15 minutes, while jotting down your answers.
- First, visualize your financial situation. How much money do you have in your savings, how much do you make in income?
I have money in savings, but prefer not to touch it. I would like to make between 2500 and 3000 a month. I think that is fair with my degree and employment history. Also, for harp gigs, I will charge $150- $250 dollars. That seems to be the going rate.
- What is your net worth? How is your cash flow?
- multiple streams of income. I signed up for that workshop at church on how to make extra money. My sponsor dog sits. I could do that. Also, I could do outsource and get a gig and then get paid for data entry and secretarial work.
- Next…What does your home look like? Where is it? What color are the walls? Are there paintings hanging in the rooms? What do they look like? Walk through your perfect house visually, using your mind’s eye.
One bedroom condo, with library, dining room, kitchen (granite counter tops), nice big bathroom, view of mountains, work out room and pool in condo courtyard. My painting hung on wall as well as the objects of art I inherited from mom.
At this point, don’t worry about how you’ll get that house. Don’t sabotage yourself by saying, “I can’t live in Malibu because I don’t make enough money.” Once you give your mind’s eye the picture, your mind will solve the “not enough money” challenge.
Simply be honest with yourself about what you truly want. Continue visualizing your perfect home. Next, visualize what kind of car you are driving.
- Next, visualize your career. What are you doing in your career? Where are you working? Who are you working with? What kind of clients do you have? What is your compensation like? Is it your own business?
I f I had my own business it would be conflict resolution, mediator, harpist, writer, teacher, HR. multiple sources of income where I could afford my own home or one-bedroom apartment. I really would not mind working for a hotel. and I want to be in Colorado and Florida. May visit CA but want to move on now. I let go of the need to have this condition in my life./
- Then, focus on your free time, your recreation time. What are you doing with your family and friends in the free time you’ve created for yourself? What hobbies are you pursuing? What kinds of vacations do you take?
mountains,park, visit Orlando to see friends. visit family and friends in other states.
- Next, visualize your body and your physical health,
- cancer free and healthy. your emotional emotionally healed and happy. and spiritual life. attend church, pray and play the harp for others in a healing ministry.
- Are you free and open, relaxed, perseverant, in an ecstatic state of bliss all day long. What does that look like?
- Then move on to visualizing your relationships with your family and friends. What is your relationship with your family like? Who are your friends? What are the quality of your relationships with friends? What do those friendships feel like? Are they loving, supportive, empowering? Could they be better?
on speaking terms whit family. nephew okay. sister, I forgive but let her go because of her hurtful, toxic behaviors. If she changes, maybe. Better friends, if you want the truth. Friends who are ambitious, honest, no “frenemis” crap! and maybe one day get married.
- What about your own personal growth? Do you see yourself going back to school, taking training, seeking therapy for a past hurt or growing spiritually?
- Move on to the community you live in, the community you’ve chosen. It’s ideal, isn’t it?
- Arvada, Vail, college town, seasons of the year. Mountains, clean air, fresh food. Spiritual.
Golden, charitable work can be done from anywhere.
- What does it look like? What kinds of community activities take place there? What about your charitable work? What do you do to help others and make a difference?
- How often every week do you participate in these activities? Who are you helping?
I pray for miracle money!
no more slithering,
I fly on eagle’s wings.
