there's an inner power that makes winners or losers.
And the winners are the ones who really listen to the truth
of their hearts." -
Sylvester Stallone, Actor/Screenwriter
daily mood or attitude must be one of a confident expectancy of all Good
things - this is our greatest prayer. As we expect the best, the
best must come to us. Our mood or attitude is vital to realizing a
Life that is exciting, filled with success, prosperity and happiness.
Regardless of what is happening to us or what has happened to us, we
must cultivate an attitude of confidence in the Good.
As we consistently go within to our inner power, the Christ
within or Higher Self, and contemplate Life as happy, healthy,
prosperous and fulfilling, we attract every Good think we can imagine
and more into our Life experience. We cannot allow the temporary
circumstance, the past circumstances or the world's opinions to get in
our way. This is the Truth that we will hear as we listen to our
hearts. This is the Truth that builds the Faith that is immovable
and unshakeable against all odds and opposition.
Most people who have attained great success and happiness in life
have gone through struggles - but they went through them, they didn't
stay and make a life-long commitment to their misery.
I have been knocked down a few times in my life too, but I have never
been knocked out! No one can do that to me or to you, but
ourselves. We must not allow this to become our belief. We
must not allow ourselves to dabble in doubt as doubt is the twin brother
of fear and if we allow ourselves to contemplate doubt for long we will
be shaking hands with fear in no time at all. Let's not
fear anybody or anything. Let's not fear illness, no matter what
the name of it. Let's not fear poverty no matter how broke we may
seem to be. Let's not fear failure even if we have experienced
more than one or two.
Radical Rabbi stated that the "kingdom of heaven is within."
It is within each and every one of us. So let's not litter the
kingdom with fear, doubt, worry and limitation. Let's lift up our
spirits every day in confidence and assurance that "our
life is the activity of God." We are living a Divine
Life - divinely guided, divinely directed, divinely loved and protected!
This is the truth that we must contemplate every day as often as
possible. We can know that within us is the power, the strength,
the wisdom and the how-to, move-through solution that we need.
And, we will know all that we need to know when we need to know it ....
if..... we maintain and sustain an expectancy and a confidence in the
importantly, we must understand and realize at all times that we don't
need anyone to do anything for us. We have all we need to do that
which we need to do. As we meditate with a focus on our heart and
arouse within our consciousness a great love for this Power within us,
It becomes active in our life in a most glorious way. Within
each of us is an Irresistible Power of Love, that is waiting to Love us
as much as we can Love ourselves! So, we need to get busy
and love ourselves enough to know that we can be confident and
self-assured in the Truth that all things Good are available to us - and
we must accept them. But too often we are so busy making excuses,
talking about the misery from yesterday or listening to someone else
tell us about their misery that we miss out on the opportunities to
accept our Good. We miss out on the opportunity to live in the
attitude of confidence and happiness. Let's learn to let go of our
old habits, our old ways of thinking, our old ways of talking, and our
old ways of allowing ourselves to participate in conversations that do
not charge our life with more energy and a greater sense of excitement
about living this thing called Life. Let's cultivate a belief in
the Goodness of Life, in the Joy of living it.
Believe as Sylvester Stallone believes: "I
believe there's an inner power that makes winners or losers. And

So It Is!
