A Dog’s Life

SunnyWe just got a new dog. He is a beautiful Labrador / Husky mix. To be honest he looks like a Lab with the beautiful blue eyes of a husky. He is also very big and is only about 18 months old, so he still has a little puppy in him. He is loads of fun and a great cuddler. He also has tons of energy. When we go out for walks I notice that he has never met a stranger and loves to explore every nook and cranny of the world he finds around him. He assumes everyone and everything was put on the earth to either play with him or love on him. And guess what? Usually that is exactly what happens. The vibrations he sends out are positive and attract the positives in others. That’s not a bad way to live.

Is your first thought when you start your day closer to “what is going to go wrong today” or “what new opportunity will I get today”? Scientifically speaking the energy we project through our thoughts and expectations largely determines what we attract into our lives. If we project fear, anxiety, and stress we find larger quantities of experiences that back those feelings up. If we project hope, love, and faith we find larger quantities of positive experiences that back those up.

So the question is simple – Do you want more fear, anxiety, and stress in your life or more hope, love, and faith?

It is all up to you – Make the choice and get the life you want!

The “reality” principle is a dangerous illusion fueled by fear.

The desire for a guarantee will dig a grave for your creative pursuits and your success.

We may not be born with instructions written on our hearts but we do have a direction written on our hearts.

Money, relationships, physical security, emotional security, – none of these fully satisfy or fulfill us. – -even faith, outside our true design,  leaves us wanting because the God we have faith in is meant o be reflected in us. When we are pursuing a false design, or none at all, we distort the reflection and it directly effects our faith and the fulfillment of it.

Our design and dream mechanism becomes clouded early in life. It is very much like putting a lawn mower away for the winter season and in the spring it doesn’t crank. It needs a tune up from a professional. If we left the lawn mower long enough we may believe that it would never start again.  However, once it begins to run and we smell the freshly mowed grass, we begin to remember that there is more to life than a run down and over grown lawn.  We begin to envision fresh flowers and manicured lawns.

If we let the lawn go long enough we lose this vision and become content at just pulling a few weeds here and there, if that.  This compromise is what often leads to the depression, anxiety, poor relationships, etc., that we struggle with.

Don’t give up just get your dream muscle a tune up.
