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.
