The beginning...the start.....the top.....of each year is always exciting. It gives people a chance to profess from their mouth all the goals and aspirations they will look to achieve, or make right with what they fell short of the year before. Regardless of how rightfully silly it truly is because nothing magical will occur at 12 am of each first of the year....it is a positive action being taken.
The main thing I think all can benefit from is the art of being proactive. Taking the initiative to DO. It sounds so simple but we all struggle to put the walking to our talking at times. This is the year of action. The question should be "what are you actually doing that is aligned with god's purpose for your life"? During times we live in, it is crucial that everyone get centered and focused. Have a purpose driven life. Behind every action that you take, think critically about it first and then make a move. Don't just move, don't just say that hurtful thought. Take time to consider the person you are speaking with and how it may be received. Bathe yourself in love for yourself and naturally it will come out and cleanse the ones around you. Force yourself to remove all the jealous and envious thoughts that cross your mind. It is not pure and will only keep you from focusing on what is really important.
Stop wasting time around those who are not of your wave length. Just as signals get switched on devices from bad reception, so will ours when we expose ourselves to a certain "reception" of folks. You have to be responsible for the people you allow in your life and in your inner circle. You truly will be the average of the 5 closest people to you. So take that seriously and guard the information, thoughts and energy you allow in that space. If things start to seem off and out of control it is only you to look to as to why. You are responsible for the energy you give out and what you take in.
Interesting I was watching this program this morning and it was discussing the way our heart has a direct connection to our brain. In other words whatever we are feeling in our heart will translate to our brains and will then push out thoughts, actions and emotions into our world and the people around us. Therefore it is in our best interest to LOVE as much as we can because it will be manifested in our DOINGS. If you are harboring anger, resentment, hate, jealousy, bitterness or negativity in your heart it will show up in all that you DO. Unfortunately you will come up short and you will be losing. The key is to keep your heart pure, clean, positive, happy, grateful , thankful, humble and honest....HONEST. This is very important for your actions to follow suit.
Our thoughts and emotions will determine how we ACT in this world and what we will do. We limit all we can do when we limit our thinking and keep it in the negative space, therefore limiting how far we can go. This year make the conscious decision and effort to go FAR and to DO more. Move me with your actions not your words... :)
Live a purpose driven life.....HELLO 2012!
