Respect Your Inner Drive

Start your self-respect early.

Believe in your intuition.

There is a different way of going through the world than the dominant one presented to us.

The one that feels good to your inner sense is the best way for you.

Following your inner drive, you will feel gently guided and led to all the right connections.

You will have time to develop your skill.

You will embrace all the things you need to be successful.

A great work environment, wonderful colleagues and clients, ready access to materials.

And most of all, deep satisfaction in your worthwhile work.

Attracting Flow and Balance

What is most useful to you is discovering what you love and moving to create your life out of those elements.

What you love defines you.

It is the identity you carry with you in life, in thought, in everything you do.

Your identity supports who you are.

It is the most direct line to what you want to achieve with guidance from within.

It is the way you will make the most effective contribution to society and civilization.

The harmony in your life and in your surroundings will generate more for the world than anything else you do.

Creating and living from the sense of perfect balance and flow energizes in a powerful way, i.e. no loss.

It connects you with the best resources, the best way of doing what you love.

Listening to the senses within to guide you in making decisions, big and small, gives you a more direct way to your goal.

You keep your balance and allow the flow of ideas essential to your progress, your project.

Trust the feeling of what you love.

Let it establish the flow and balance of your life.

How To Think For Yourself

Listen within.  Feel your intuition.  Be yourself.  Note the difference.

Instead of being swept along by what is in the public eye, you have the right to discover an entirely different life.

Your goals are the ones that mean something to you.

You may have carried a goal all your life that you can finally address.

You may just now discover a new possibility for yourself.

You are the one who knows what fits.

It is fine to try out different goals and to work the jobs that are available and to gain experiences.

But keep listening for what you love and for what you value most.

Let that grow in thought and let it lead you to a different destination by a different way.

Surely, this is why you are here.

To experience and find out new things and to discover what you love.

Surely this is the goal with the most satisfaction for you.

Surely, this will put you in contact with people of like-mind who have the same values of loving what they do.

Surely, this is the best way to build community.

Surely, this is the best way to find fulfillment.

Long-Held Desires

It is important to act on long-held desires

They are attainable.

You are here to be fulfilled.

When you can see the work that you desire to do, it is your right to be able to do it.

If it takes a long time to put yourself in position, that is OK.

The sincerity of your desire will take you there.

You will explore the steps you have always wanted to take and appreciate the fact that it is now possible.

Whatever is deeply within you has a right to be expressed and enjoyed.

You are the best person to judge how you feel and to direct your steps.

You can take them with confidence as you get more and more practice.

Act now in the direction of your own desire.

My Many Ways of Learning

Even though I learned things the way I was taught in public school, and followed directions to the letter to learn to play a musical instrument to a professional level, there are other ways I learn things.

I explore new things and I learn them in different ways.

Without the coaching of step-by-step hand positions and tables of facts to memorize, I employ my curiosity with a very different rhythm.

The rhythm changes according to what I am learning and how new it is to me.

Sometimes I read the directions over and over again.

Sometimes I just jump in.

Sometimes I take tiny, tiny steps over a long period of time.

Sometimes, I gather materials and create a bunch of things all at once.

All these ways work.

The little tiny steps gradually grow into a large useful product.

The spontaneously created things get refined.

The patterns I make up as I go get modified as I go until I have a delightful finished product.

The imaginative use of materials is one of my favorite ways to learn.

I, myself, have no idea of the results until I see them take shape.

The favorite thing that I have learned is that I enjoy these many different approaches and that I am not tied to any preconceived results.

The Part Within

How do you take care of the part within you?

How do you nurture your soul, your artist’s sense, the feeling of integrity?

All of those indicate something of your inner nature.

When you feed your inner nature, you cultivate the kind of life you want to live.

When you feed only your immediate needs, without thought for how your actions affect your entire life, you may cut yourself off from the best part.

Of course, you can do what you need to do to earn a living.

You can better yourself and your situation by continually cultivating the ability to do your best work.

As you apply excellence and honesty to everything you do, you will attract more opportunities to express them.

You can cultivate generosity, compassion, and have an uplifting attitude.

You can cultivate inventiveness, efficiency, and happiness.

Everything you put into the situation will multiply as you think about it and do it.

Nurturing the sense of who you are gives you more room to express it.

Be sure to contemplate the highest ideals possible and include them in every way.

From Wholeness to Wholeness

Value your incoming thoughts and let them lead you where and how to be whole.  

That is what starts the income flow.

Consider what is vital to you and focus on that.

Listen for those directions.

Your sense of direction is the feeling of what makes you whole.

It is unique to your individuality.

Wholeness is a way of proceeding.

You start from a feeling of what it is like to be where you want to be.

You have a complete feeling about it.

You move from wholeness to wholeness.

It is all-encompassing.

Whatever you need is included.

A timetable of completeness is part of the process.

It does not include rushing or pushing.

It does not allow holding back.

It is a patient process, though, while you work out what it is you need to do next.

By listening and being patient, you will find yourself moving in the right direction.

As you feel whole and complete your goal, you may find that it is just one stop on your path.

Patience

Sometimes,  with the inspiration and excitement of an idea, it is hard to feel patient to allow the development of the idea to take place.

The idea feels so wonderful and we want to see it right away!

Actually, the idea is the promise.

It is emerging in thought.

As you nurture it and enjoy it, it will attract the resources and connections to appear.

This is the time to cultivate a listening attitude every time you think about how wonderful the idea is.

As yo go about you daily life, you mind is working on the connections.

The events of your life, past and present, are bringing the elements together to create and form the idea.

You will find yourself glancing through a catalog and finding the perfect element to include in your idea.

You will find yourself, driving through a neighborhood and seeing a wonderful arrangement in someone’s yard, which gives you added inspiration for your idea.

You will be having lunch and reading a book and another element will present itself.

All these elements are coming together as you go about your day, and they are combining.

They will present the perfect balance in your idea’s presentation, marketing, connection with customers and clients.

Best of all, you will enjoy the whole process.

Be happy, and be patient.

It is all coming together.

Start Giving

Do not wait until you fulfill some kind of circumstance, but start giving right away.

You have an innate sense of what your gifts are because you are drawn to certain things.

You give from your deepest sense of who you are.

Throughout your life, you will gain a deeper sense of your identity and how to give.

You always give from your heart’s overflow.

You give when you are moved to do so.

You give because you come from an Infinite Source.

Your giving uplifts and comforts and informs.

You present a different and higher view when you give.

You always give generously.

Your unique vision helps you identity a need which you can support with your gifts.

Your particular point of view allows you to create solutions to the problems you see.

You are always in touch with your Source whenever you listen within, so it is easy to identify where you can give.

Nothing can prevent you from sharing your gifts and giving widely.

You have a natural attraction to the people and places who will receive your gifts most gladly.

You are supported by your ability to give and your natural desire to share your gifts.

Stick To Your Ideals

Your ideals will take you much farther than anything else.

As you develop them, they expand.

Your ideals work through your mental and emotional channels, so therefore they have a much farther outreach than all other resources.

Follow them.

Listen to them.

Take the first tiny steps which come to you.

Let those tiny steps accumulate into more and more steps.

Your goal will redefine and expand each time you listen to your ideals.

There are no limits on the power of ideals and the resources they attract.

Be sure of your desire to uplift, comfort and to provide assurance.

Selfishness turns inward, and generosity blesses everyone it touches.

Your generosity comes from the ideas which help you uplift others.

You create room to receive when you listen inwardly for direction.

As yo provide room for others to receive, you receive also.

Your giving heart does not leave you empty.

The expansion of ideals lifts, comforts, provides, communicates, supplies, and enhances every part of life.

How Your Life Develops

 The world throws random experiences at you.

Some are in line with your heritage, some with your surroundings, some with your companionship.

Their common element is that they all come into your life.

What you do with each of them is entirely up to you.

You can appreciate them or fear them.

You can accept them or resent them.

You can justify them or disrespect them.

How you respond is the one factor which will shape them.

Your reaction alone will cause them to continue to interact in random ways.

But your considered thought about them and your choices in how to direct and redirect them will create an intentional life.

Amazing to think that despite the government you grew up with, the neighborhood, the education, the parenting, that all this is simply background.

You can redraw, reshape, give emphasis and texture to any portion that you like.

Your imagination and skill will create different scenarios.

Even the emotional factors can come under your control with the appropriate tools.

So, watch and listen.

Consider, and then create.

Outside Expectations

Right here, right now, you are meeting some kind of expectations.

Some of them may be yours, but a lot of them are not.

All the factors which have gone into how you were raised, your gender, the culture around you and many more, are contributing to what is expected of you.

However, the most important part of that is what you expect and accept about yourself.

As your life takes its shape, it may appear to be going along all right.

Or it may appear to have too many obstacles to survive.

At some point, whether it is good or bad, you may be prompted to think about your life in a different way.

You may wonder how you got to this point.

You may decide it is not fair.

You may decide, even if it is good, you would like it to be more generous.

There are many directions your thought about your life may take.

The important thing is that you are now thinking about your life.

As you consider it, you may begin to seek out some ways in which you could change it.

This is when you could move from outside expectations to the ones coming from within you.

Think about your life.

Ponder it.

And then, go within, and find out what you are really here for.
