It’s not the promise of doughnuts, or my first cup of tea that gets me up in the morning, I just love my early morning walks. Hmm why is that?
Maybe because this morning it was beautiful; sun rising, warm and breezy and the birds were chirping merrily. Love me those birds. But no, it’s not that.
How about the fact that I’m always happy to be moving…my Darling One…a true gym rat (not sure if that’s a nice expression, but if he reads this he’s sure to let me know) well, he loves to say move it or lose it. But I think it’s move it and lose it…the jiggly bits that is. So I’m happy to be moving.
No, that’s not it either.
And then it struck me. I love it because I get high.
I bump into people who have earphones…I’m sure they’re listening to something wonderful…and I’ve even met a woman carrying a little radio with some talk radio show blaring. I suppose she couldn’t bear to miss it. I kid you not.
Me? I do affirmations. I affirm all manner of wonderful things for friends and family…at their request, or with their permission. And by the time my walk is over…I’m high. High on life. High on their happiness as they experience these wonderful things in my imagination.
How does that happen? Well might you might ask.
It’s consciousness that’s what.
We are drawing into our world everything that we’re conscious of, be it about us or another. Doesn’t matter. Keeping attention on success, happiness, prosperity, or wellness , is a request to experience it, even when it’s all about someone else. Life always responds to any claim we repeatedly make in consciousness through our thoughts, beliefs and feelings, and our consciousness doesn’t know the difference between us and another. It only recognizes and responds to the vibration within. Isn’t that great? We can imagine fantastic things for everyone else and we get to have them too.
Simply put, what we’re conscious of becomes our reality.
It goes without saying, although you know I’m going to say it anyway…stay out of the habit of judging and criticizing, or seeing only unlovely things. It’s a request to experience more of the same.
Shorter version. Think happily about anything or anyone because it feels great and brings you greater things. Can’t say no to that now, can we?
Encourage each other.
