The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. ~ Marcel Proust How does life look today?  Oh, and what about the world around you?  Is it looking good, great even?  Is it filled with loving caring people and great experiences, or is it a fearful place where you have to be careful, and very cautious, because who knows what’s lurking out there ready to get you?  Is your life filled with positive and productive experiences or regrets and evidence of failure?  Are you looking forward to continuing the wonderful journey you’re on, or are you more likely to want to stay in bed and hide under your covers? One of my friends is a pessimist.  He looks for the worst that could happen, he believes everybody else has what he wants and so there’s not much left for him.  His expectation is…

Call me paranoid, but there are times when I think my thoughts are out to get me.  Yes that’s the sixty thousand daily thoughts we apparently have.  But then  I remember, uh-oh, I think I’m supposed to be in charge of them. Though there are definitely times when it seems that they think they’re the boss. Those small, negative, but still creative thoughts, disguised as apparently inoffensive teeny, tiny ideas. Take today, I set off for my appointment a little later than usual and did I think it’s okay, I’ll get there in perfect time.  Not likely…I probably used up at least twenty of my daily thought ration on, I’m going to be late.  I know it, I’ll definitely be late. Around number twenty, I caught what was going on and used the next few hundred on…how great I got there in plenty of time.  Phew…that felt much better.  Enquiring…

The challenge with the laws of life isn’t knowing them.  It’s doing them.  Living by them, applying them.  In the face of emotional upset it’s all too easy to fall into old familiar patterns of response, of feeling, often made worse by the fact that now you’re aware, now you know you’re planting seeds of tomorrow’s experiences.  I should know, read my post from yesterday.  Hells bells, as my Dad liked to say. Some years ago I went to an internet seminar.  And the one thing I remember being told was that out of the five hundred or so people in attendance, most of them would do nothing different when they got home and maybe three…and only maybe three people would do something with the fabulous information we were to receive. Not me baby, thought I.  I’m definitely one of the three.  Turned out, not so much. Like the path…

At fifteen I learned what a governor was.  No, not of a State, but a governor on a three ton lorry. I persuaded some young airman to let me drive his lorry.  It didn’t end well, and not because I crashed into a couple of dustbins…hey it was a big truck, it was a stick shift and I’d never been behind a wheel before. On the third circuit around the block, when I was trying to get that baby to really move, two things happened.  I discovered that these vehicles had regulators that kept them from travelling above a certain speed, which was interesting and my Dad came home unexpectedly early…not so interesting.  We were done for, my cohort and me. Years later the lesson of the governor would come to mind as I saw the same struggles over and over again.  Losing weight only to put it all back…

Some years ago I went to a seminar…it sounded great.  Six Easy Steps To The Secret of Life…not the exact title but close enough.  Wow, I was hooked.  I like easy; six steps seemed doable and the secret of life…well who wouldn’t want to know what that was.  I was there with bells and whistles. Two days later I still had questions.  The presenter said that the sub-conscious was the powerhouse behind everything.  Regardless of what my conscious mind had to say on the matter, the sub-conscious was the ruler of the roost.  Okay, I got that.  Now how do I tell my sub-conscious what I want so I have this powerhouse working for me and not against me.  Aah, she said that’s the million dollar question for which I don’t have an answer.  What!  Nooo.  I’d come to learn these secrets and the biggest one of all was beyond…
