The Force

December 15th, 2014

Guess what? Everything is not going to happen when you want it to happen or how you want it to happen.

Mentally we know this is a fact but every time something does not happen the way we planned, we completely forget that fact. “What did I do wrong?”, “Is this a test?”, “Is this payback for eating fast food?”

We are co-creators of our reality with a heavy emphasis on the “co” part. There is a force much greater than who we think we are. This is the force that keeps us breathing and digesting and a million other functions while we sleep.(Did you think that was just you doing it? Really?).

This is the force that turns you right when you were going to go wrong. This is the force that shuts your mouth when words that could hurt are trying to come out. This is the force that comforts you when no one is around.

Yes, you and I have plans but there is a force that has the final say as to when and how those plans work out. When you step back and see how that force has positively affected your life, gratitude is in order.

If your plans aren’t working out, it’s only because the force has a better idea.
May the force be with you. Oh, wait… that’s right, if you are alive it is always with you! Well then,enjoy!

The force

November 17th, 2014

We all have an Achilles ankle. We all have some Kryptonite that shows up every now and then and takes away our super powers. We all can be hurt. We all can be overwhelmed with sadness, anxiety and pain.

Knowing that everyone is in the same position doesn’t make it one iota easier to handle when we feel bad. If we live long enough we find out that we can’t sidestep every single upset. We are going to get walloped every now and then in this life. What can we do? Just grin and bear it? NO!

There is a force within us, every single one of us, no exceptions, that is powerful beyond belief. Being in touch with this force is the key to life. This is the force that takes over when a crisis happens and we suddenly act faster than we can think. This is the force that holds our tongue or allows it to speak the perfect words. This is the force that whispers through our tears that yes, we can survive. This is the force that brings us to prayer or meditation or chanting when they weren’t options we were considering. This is the force that comforts us when no one is around.

That force is inside of each and every one of us and life’s greatest journey is the one that takes us to that realization. You are more powerful than you can ever imagine. A Ferrari is a powerful car but if we were not aware that it had more than its first gear we would be disappointed. Don’t be disappointed with life or with what life is bringing to you. Shift higher. Shift to more power. Shift to thoughts of of greater possibilities. Shift to a better attitude.

You understood the power of being an adult when you were young. Seize that power now. See the possibilities of a fresh, new beginning. Use the force within you to change your perspective. The force isn’t an addition to you. It is you.
