Grand In Scope, Weightless In Spirit

“To desire is to obtain;
to aspire is to achieve.”

“You will become as small
as you controlling desire;
or as great
as your dominant aspiration.”

— James Allen

I am fascinated with the word, aspire. It sort of makes wants and desires little things. It is grand in scope and weightless in spirit. It means to rise, to ascend, to soar and in Latin, it means to breathe upon. That makes me think about breathing life into something. A desire is wanting something, but to aspire is to become, to intend.

When I am considering and dreaming of and playing with my aspirations, I feel free and alive and full of hope and wonder at the same time. What is happening here and now is of little importance. It is more like a connection with the Infinite and what possibilities exist regardless of circumstances, past history, or any other limiting factor.

You Are Remarkable!

“Humans can turn nothing into something,
pennies into fortune, and disaster into success.
And the reason they can do such remarkable things
is because they are remarkable.”

— Jim Rohn

Why are humans remarkable? He says, “Humans are different than any other creation. When a dog starts with weeds, he winds up with weeds. And the reason is because he’s a dog. But that’s not true with human beings. Humans can turn weeds into gardens.”

We humans also have this tendency to wallow in our current reality not realizing that we have so much power to change our reality; our circumstances; our lives. We do have the power. All we have to do is change our thoughts to ones with belief in our own ability and power to change at a moment’s notice, then act on that inspiration!

Get excited about your remarkable power!

Overflowing Potential

“We Have No Idea What Tomorrow Will Bring, 
But Today Is Overflowing With Potential.” 

— Allan Lokos 

We have a tendency to look forward to something, many things, things being better, an event that is coming, loved ones arriving, things being done as we would like, and at the specified time. That’s all good. We need things to draw us, and our anticipation is often exciting.

Yet, as we do that, it is all too easy to think of today as simply a stepping stone on the path to tomorrow, or to that time we are looking forward to. This would be a good definition of wasting time.

As we become more aware of our life as a journey and that the real value is in fully living the moments as they come, regardless of what they contain, that awareness leads us to a joyful life, by in-joying ourselves and all that is going on in and around us.

That’s the life I am coming so much closer to living. Eyes wide open, seeing what I want to see, feel what I want to feel, enjoying anticipation but not being carried off with it.
