An Inside Job

“FAKE IT ‘TILL YOU MAKE IT”
“ACT AS IF”
“BRING THE MIND AND THE HEART WILL FOLLOW”

Sounds like a bunch of tired old platitudes! Truth is; these banal statements are the foundation of our journey toward Joy. When we emerge from life in the reactive mode, being tossed about by the intentions of others, and begin to design our own blue print…, we need to start with them.

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference. ( Winston Churchill)

Find a place (inside) where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.
~Joseph Campbell~

In order to create the life we long for, or attract conditions of our intention we need to visualize these conditions from a place of joy. If we have doubt about the end result, we will not get what we are intending but what we are afraid of.
When we dream, long, wish, hope, plan, or intend, we must first find something in our life that we are grateful for. Focus on the gratitude until we feel a little lighter. Then reach a bit further, and think of something that brings a smile to our face. Hold that thought a while. Now while in a more joyful attitude, focus upon that which we intend to happen, while feeling the joy of it already being real.

Mark 11:24″Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours”

WE NEED TO BE “THERE” ON THE INSIDE, FOR THE OUTSIDE TO GET THERE!

The Journey IS the destination.
Namaste`
