The Simplest Things!

Isn’t it ever amazing how some of the simplest things in life can have the greatest meaning?

The natural body of water which surrounds my island to add aesthetic and provides recreation is the same body of water that can cause destruction and take lives.

Abundance of rainfall has the power to give life to plants and the earth  and lack of can lead to serious drought and damage to our eco-system.

Trees and their natural habitats have the ability to restore and sustain our environment as well as provide material and space for the commercial buildings leading to depletion of the natural balance of the environment.

It is almost as if everything around us can be manifested in either a negative or positive way depending on how we choose to use it.

In the same way we can use our tongues can be used to  speak both life and death.The language we speak will attract the situations , experiences and events in our life.

The Bible states in  James 3:11-12 New International Version (NIV)

11 Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? 12 My brothers and sisters, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.

In Matthew 6:24

“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other” .

Likewise having two adverse levels of thinking only leaves for confusion and dissonance in our lives. To be totally committed to a way of thinking is a lifestyle. I have found that a CONSISTENT way of thinking creates a level of CLARITY that will attract the same level of circumstances, situations, experiences and people in your life.

It often amazes me how when I take to time to become one with my surroundings how I can become filled with intangible fruits of the spirt love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

The smile of the lady in the market, though the sun beats her brow and there is noise all around her warms my heart because I know it is okay smile in the face of adversity.

Whenever I see school children holding hands to cross the pedestrian I gleam as I remember we are indeed our brothers keeper.

When I am in the line waiting for hours to pay for one item in the supermarket when there are five people in front of me with fives times the amount of items . I master my level of patience , then I realise I am not more important that any being. Infact we are all brothers and sisters pursuing this journey of life.

It is almost as if there are several omens all round us waiting to be discovered and revealed. However they can only be revealed if your level of thinking produces enough CLARITY and CONSISTENCY to unlock the code. Sometimes the more simple the omen is , the harder it is to unlock the code.

I play the violin and it amazes me how much that instrument can inspire me . Sometimes I feel like I am having a musical orgasm lol. Understanding the many layers , how the sound travels through the different lines on the instrument, how your hands and mind can become in sync creating the perfect melody. You almost feel like you are operating on auto- pilot. It’s has the ability to take me into a state of highness.

Sometimes it good to PAUSE, LISTEN,AND OBSERVE your surroundings as you never know the secret to be revealed to you that is in accordance with your level of thinking within that present moment.

Blessings, Light & Love,

That Voice!

 

Pensive in my thought as I reflect on my life for the past three (3) months. What once started out as a journey filled with hope, faith and courage in the acquisition of my goals has now become one filled with that reluctance, fear and timidness as  I meet my other self. She who has been absent for the past six months. She has confronted me and asks me one question: How bad do you really want it? 

She shouts in my ear and  I fail the need to connect to my inner self. The one that convinces, the one  that motivates, and pushes me into a higher state of reasoning. It feels almost okay to be in this place of comfort and acceptance . Then I see her, my other self in the mirror shouting at me yelling ” You can’t make it!” ”  Your dreams are unrealistic!” and “Your discipline is a joke!” ”  You are not worthy to unleash the true purpose of this life that you were given!”

Interestingly she even begins to  shout at me through relationships.I have reached a point where I know growth has STOPPED!

I remember seeing this  some where : “Everything that happens to you is a reflection of what you believe about yourself. We cannot outperform our level of self-esteem. We cannot draw to ourselves more than we think we are worth” 

I look in the mirror and it is as if I can hear the author speaking these words as I see my life reflecting in the mirror in front on me. I see the evidence throughout my life both in my intrapersonal, interpersonal and my intimate relationship(s). It is almost as if there is a struggle between what I believe is true for myself and what my present reality is.

I pause. I listen. The more I think the more  I begin to realise that my other self is actually my blessing . It will never fails to remind me of where I am! The truth is  the very first day I set out making goals on this journey there was dissonance created to take me from where I am/was to where I needed to be.

I realise I still and will ALWAYS have the power of CHOICE. The choice to choose to listen to the voice that  supports me and my goals. The choice to choose what I believe about myself.  The choice to change my mirror image. The choice to increase my level of esteem . The choice to submit myself to the element of CHANGE.

I CHOOSE to continue on my journey ,living by choice and not chance. Making changes not excuses. Choosing self- esteem and not self-pity!

This meeting has taught me a valuable lesson.

NEVER and I mean NEVER forget your goals because you will give permission to your other self to begin speaking loudly.

Find a way to see your goals as many times per day as possible. Place it on flashcards!Place them on your bathroom mirror! Place them on your ceiling above your bed even as your screensaver on your phone. NEVER loose sight of them.

NO excuse is ever good enough from keeping you from achieving your goals.

Don’t allow the noise of your other self to drown out your inner voice. It somehow knows already what you truly want to achieve.

The choices we make in life determine the mirror image that we create for ourselves. Make choices that reflect the change you want to see for yourself .

As I continue on my journey, I will write and share my lessons as I make my way through this incredibly intense life. Blessings , light and love.Emotion
