I normally write my weekly blog from whatever topic is relevant at the time but this week I selected a chapter from my book, The Realm, which I think you will find very empowering. https://www.amazon.com/Realm-Daniel-Mears/dp/1973382334
Get going. Move forward. Aim High! Plan a take-off. Don’t just sit on the runway and hope someone will come along and push the airplane. It simply won’t happen. Change your attitude and gain some altitude. Believe me, you’ll love it up here! Donald Trump
I tend to stay away from politics but I do love this quote. This empowering quote is flowing over, gushing with hidden springs of optimism! First it says, “get going”. We can’t sit on our hands and expect something positive to happen. It goes on to say, “ Aim High!” We are not to be satisfied with mediocre results, just go for it with gusto, aiming for the sky! Don’t expect someone else to come along and “push the airplane”. It goes on invoking how changing our attitude will help us go on to achieving some, “altitude”, in life. Then he goes on to tell you how happy you will be once you have put forth the energy and reaped the rewards. Yes, “you’ll love it up here”, this power packed quote states. Some people do have strong feelings about politics but remember we are all children of the living God so do not let divisiveness slip into your life; we are one regardless of differing views.
This quote strays from the more conventional philosophical writers and religious texts but strikes home with me for the simple fact I did some flying years ago, plus it is great advice for those of us vying for a more affluent lifestyle. As a young man I learned to fly in a small Cessna when I was taking flying lessons. Eventually I soloed, which means, I was checked off by my flight instructor as capable of flying by myself with hopefully minimal risk of crashing. I was walking out to the plane to go practice flying by myself on a cool, crisp winter morning. I loved flying on mornings like this. It was cool, calm and clear with blue skies for as far as I could see. A plane has great response on cool mornings as long as it isn’t freezing to the point of causing dangerous icing conditions. The air is denser than during the warmer months. After my pre-flight inspection I throttled down the runway and the plane literally jumped into the clear blue morning sky seemingly as eager as I. I had only recently soloed so it was still sinking in that I was alone in the cockpit, unassisted by my thoroughly competent flight instructor. I flew around the pattern to practice some landings and then suddenly it registered loudly in my mind, “fly-the-plane”, no one is going to do it for you. Such is life; you have to get moving forward, fly your plane, your life, no one can do it for you, so be an active player. Positive motion is half of, “staying positive”.
Staying positive during times of change and on a daily basis is imperative to our empowerment. This may seem a challenging endeavor, certainly daunting at times because of our propensity to flash back to our old reactionary thinking. So, remember to relentlessly stay positive, thinking love filled thoughts which bring power! Also, we are happiest and most productive when we can get moving, toss fearful living back to the abyss. The nothingness from which it came, like turning a light on in a dark room the darkness vanishes instantaneously. Fear is the same as darkness. It has no substance of its own.
So, when we put hope, faith and the belief that good things are here now in the place of useless fear then only the positive remains. Move forward with positive motion, this will empower and enable us to invoke the privilege, our God given power, to choose our creative path. This is how we shape our destiny. Look to the positive!
Likewise, when this seems to be a challenging proposition and all appears to be tumbling down around us; unforeseen bills, illness, or accidents may cause us momentarily to stray from the positive. It is then we need to refocus and realize as my mother would say, “This too will pass!”
It is essential to remain undeterred when life is disrupted, during times of hardship or when some aggravating situation may arise. We all know heartbreaking events do occur for everyone and sadness is our expression of love for others. Knowing this, be loving towards others realizing significant events are a facet of life. Our reaction should be to accentuate the positive . Positivity is love; without love we truly cannot live a positive life. Consequently, with the wisdom retained, knowing love is power many would be negative events will simply seem to evaporate into the nothingness from which they came. This is the power of the realm!
Additionally, realize all people have potential. Each one of us is uniquely blessed with a vast variety of gifts and talents creating a mosaic of humanity! See the potential in each other and assist one another. We are all One, our realities inter-twining.
So glide gently through life, transcending the obstacles which may arise. Negotiate the pitfalls with love to emerge impervious and create a comprehensive plan of action towards , a path to manifesting your goals, aiming for the sky!
If you utilize these guidelines your life will be the exceptional blessing it was meant to be.
Remember also, to relax; give your inner batteries time to recharge. Have some fun! Having fun is a great stress buster and we are supposed to enjoy life. Play, have a family outing! Great memories are truly made when we are having fun together. So reward yourself frequently, take time to relax and have some recreation. Until next time, love, light and blessings to all!
