THE NEW YEAR CAN BE WAY BETTER THAN BEFORE
It’s ANOTHER New Year! Everyone LOVES a fresh start! Well…ALMOST everyone, anyway. At the start of a new year, we all make resolutions about weight, physical fitness, money, relationships, and goals, and we never seem to be asking ‘HOW to increase our brains or HOW we can be better humanitarians?’ What ever happened to that way of thinking???
Unless we, collectively, begin to take off our ‘coats of selfishness’, our ‘coats of greed’, our ‘coats of resentments and revenge’, and our coats of ‘me, me, me’ every second of every day, we’re embedded within a society that is moving toward NO values, NO ethics, NO morality and NO compassion, and a complete system devoid of substance and character.
To get to a society, with an underlying foundation of moral character and a true sense of humanity and wellness for ALL people living on Planet Earth, it must start with YOU and your mind, YOU and your self-talk, and YOU and your actions. You cannot blame any poor behavior or poor actions on another human being, EVER! Poor thinking, which leads to poor behavior and poor actions lies STRICTLY ON EACH & EVERY INDIVIDUAL, no matter how many ways that person may want to shift the blame. The bottomline is that YOU HAVE THE CHOICE TO MAKE THE DIFFERENCE!
SO WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW
Go back in time to read and TRULY understand The Golden Rule, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” and even for those of you who have no regard, whatsoever, for the Bible, The Golden Rule is SUPREME, even if it had been written in a comic book. Don’t dismiss it, because it came from the Bible. For those of you who may want to refer to the verse in the Bible, it’s Matthew 7:12. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” should, most definitely, be in the MINDS, THOUGHTS and ACTIONS of us all.
This statement has been characterized as what Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount, “that all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them.” In Mosaic Law, they say “whatever is HURTFUL to you, do NOT do to any other person.”
Whether you you realize it or not, the Golden Rule actually goes (WAY beyond the SURFACE) of the saying, itself. You don’t simply treat others the way you want to be treated for their sake’s alone. You, also, do it for your sake, too, because if you treat someone else kindly, you’re actually treating yourself kindly. IT’S ALL CONNECTED. WE’RE ALL CONNECTED. If you treat someone else like trash, you’re actually treating yourself like trash. IT’S ALL CONNECTED. WE’RE ALL CONNECTED. Sometime you don’t see these results right away, however, this UNIVERSAL LAW works in this lifetime and in your other lifetimes, as well. It NEVER stops working.
First and foremost, we are ALL Spiritual Beings, period. It’s that part of ourselves, we can’t see, that we choose to ignore, and it’s that basic, foundational Spiritual Connection that makes us all just ONE being; not at all capable of being disconnected. So, disconnecting from anyone of ourselves IS impossible! You can disconnect a piece of equipment from a part on that equipment, you can NOT disconnect your REAL INNER SELF from anyone else’s REAL INNER SELF. It’s energy. It’s vibration. It’s Spirit. You can’t cut, shoot, or defile things that are invisible, and automatically connected, from the beginning of time!
So kids, whatever way you’re ‘being’ or whatever way you’re ‘treating’ other people, ends up coming RIGHT BACK TO YOU, eventually, even if you don’t like it or don’t want it, either. Ponder on that one for awhile!
You can believe what I’m saying here or not. It really doesn’t matter. The Golden Rule is just a Universal Law that you don’t have the power to change. So, it’s up to you, once again, to make choices, in your life, that will either BENEFIT you or NOT, based on your own thoughts, your own behavior, and your own actions. Even if you don’t believe it, doesn’t matter, because the Universal Law is ALWAYS working and will ALWAYS BE WORKING, with or without your consent.
WHAT STEPS WILL HELP ME
If you’re truly committed in 2019 to making your MIND and ACTIONS better, and to keep you from raking up some ‘jacked up KARMA’, in your near or distance future, you can:
1). Begin reading and/or watching more inspirational and motivational books, stories, videos and movies,
2). You can begin to implement some of these ideas into your own day-to-day activities,
3). You can ‘sit in silence or quiet’ a few minutes every morning to start your day with a more CALM sense of self, as you take the time to, CONNECT to your HIGHER POWER from within,
4). You can remind yourself what you’re GRATEFUL for, so the Universal Omnipresent Mind or God can hear you, for a change.
5). You can start doing something nice (without buying anything) for family, friends, and neighbors, who aren’t that nice, at all. When they see a change in you; sometimes that may spur a change in them, so you end up helping 2 people at 1 time…both them and you, and
6). You can start being MORE loving, MORE kind and MORE nurturing to YOURSELF, first, and then transmit that kindness, lovingness, and nurturing to others, based on the REAL INNER FEELINGS, that you now have, on your own.
Go into 2019 with your EYES WIDE OPEN. More importantly, go into 2019 with your HEART OPEN EVEN WIDER, and you’ll begin to experience a world you never thought existed, before you knew how it really works. Believe it or not, you’ll also realize that making this shift of feeling better and happier about yourself and others is absolutely FREE! The BEST things in life (that are PEACEFUL, LOVING, KIND & HAPPY) are all STILL FREE!!! Now, you tell me, “Does it get any better than that?!!”
