"I believe 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,

                   Our 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.

            The 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 Good.

           Most 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 the winners are the ones who really listen to the truth of their hearts." 

 And So It Is! 

Letting Love use me in Its own Good Way,
Henry Lee Bates
