There’s a Hole in My Sidewalk – The Romance of Self-Discovery by Portia Nelson

Walking dwn the stChapter I

I walk down the street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I fall in.
I am lost… I am hopeless.
It isn’t my fault.
It takes forever to find a way out.

Chapter II

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don’t see it.
I fall in again.
I can’t believe I am in this same place.
But it isn’t my fault.
It still takes a long time to get out.

Chapter III

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it there.
I still fall in… it’s a habit… but,
my eyes are open.
I know where I am.
It is my fault.
I get out immediately.

 Chapter IV

I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I walk around it.

Larry & I (2)Chapter V

I walk down another street.

 

What I Know for Sure….by Christy

“Even if I take a wrong turn, I can find another route to success.”

If I steer my vessel in the wrong direction, I can find a map and chart out a new course. Stopping is not an option. I will find my way as long as I keep open at the top.

Success is a journey, not a destination. That is why I strive to make each step count. A positive attitude helps me move forward and, even when I am unsure of where I am, I am not lost. Instead, I choose to become a trailblazer. The generation coming behind me will have access to another route thanks to my resolve to stay the course and forge a new path, “A World that Works for Every[ONE].”

When I come to a fork in the road, I trust my intuition to guide me. Being spontaneous in this way helps me release my inner self and experience success in a new way. Spontaneity gives me freedom.

Missing a turn causes me no panic because I know that I have countless options; I am not limited to only one way. Why? Because I dwell in an infinite field of possibilities, a wrong turn may lead me to find a new way. The opportunity to explore the unknown excites me.

Although it feels daring to get off the fast-paced highway of life and take the scenic route, detours can be worthwhile because they lead me to discover the beautiful things in life that I otherwise may have missed. The road less traveled is filled with the most stunning sights.

Flexibility allows me to prosper despite failure. Being flexible gives me the strength to keep going when I would rather stop.

Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. What do I do when I reach a dead end?
  2. How might I become less rigid and more flexible?
  3. What changes can I make to ensure that I enjoy the journey just as much as the end reward?

Not sure where to start or what’s holding you back?

The Spiritual Power Of Gratitude

Share

Woman drinking teaIn a world filled with materialistic possessions, it is an often scene to see people showing some displays of ungratefulness for things that other people do to them.

Especially today that people are so focused only on thinking about their own selves, the spiritual power of gratitude is mostly lost! Gratitude is an indispensable to “Living Your Best Life” since it is when we become truly humble of ourselves and acknowledge the good deeds which other people do unto us that we can only be happy, satisfied and contented.

Requires No Money And Effort…

Gratitude is indeed very easy despite what others may think. With a simple thank you or a pat on the shoulder, the other person can already feel that indeed you appreciated something that he has done for you. In addition, not only is gratitude an easy thing to do, but it also requires no money and no effort at all. However, even if it requires minimal of these things, it can definitely make people feel rich — in a much deeper sense that can reach the soul.

The Essence Of Practicing Gratitude In Our Lives…

Indeed, gratitude is a necessity in our everyday lives. It is an essential part of life that has already been forgotten by many of us. Most people have already lost the ability to simply sit and contemplate on their lives. They are too busy worrying about their finances, their work and even their future that they fail to realize the simple pleasures which make up their life.

Restoring A Sense Of Positivism…

In addition, most people are always getting the feeling that life is unfair to them and that they absolutely do not deserve the kind of life they are given. They feel that everything upon them is all negative and that there is much more to come their way. If a person feels this way, then perhaps it is time that he acknowledges the spiritual power of gratitude and lays it upon other people in order to restore the positivism around his surroundings.

Valuing People Around You…

And another important aspect of gratitude is valuing that or showing appreciation to all those people who surround you and support you through thick and thin; through all your ups and downs. Remember that gratitude is always an action; you must exert all efforts to show it and do it. Otherwise, it can never be felt by the other people whom you want to express such feeling to.

And therefore, as soon as a person acknowledges that he has spiritual power of gratitude in him, then he can say that indeed, the world is a great place to live in; that it is actually bearable and that he is part of it all. As long as he is sincere with his gratitude, he will realize that most of the important parts of his life are those things that he should actually feel thankful for. It is necessary that people feel that they are truly blessed for having such abundance in their lives for only then can they truly be happy and satisfied with themselves.

At The Natural Way and New Light Temple Spiritual Learning Center, we look forward to supporting you on your journey to “Living Your Best.”

MEDITATION MYTHS

Share

 

cropped-personal_coaching_contact_form_solution_thumb-d3cb0e0c6d0f3a2ac262e0a629295eda.jpgMeditation. I’ll bet twenty bucks that you would envision sitting cross legged on the floor, with eyes closed, and a soft “Om” sound coming from your mouth. Well that is not really untrue when doing meditation, but it is not necessary either.

Most people have always associated meditation with cult practice. A meditation myth such as this will scare people to even consider knowing it better.

Meditation is a healthy spiritual practice and a good addition to your life. It allows you to connect with your inner self and can take you to a deeper state of relaxation. However, if you suggest meditation session with those who have no idea what it really is, you’d get their “no thanks” faster than they would have said it when asked to jump off the bridge. And here are some of their reasons:

Meditation Myth #1- Meditation is a religion.

Definitely not. While meditation is a spiritual discipline, it does not entirely belong to a specific religion, nor is it used to recruit you to join one. It can be likened to a prayer, or a form of worship but it doesn’t tell you who to pray or worship for. It is basically present in all the traditions of the different religions.

Meditation Myth #2 – Meditation is an escape from the real world.

Not at all. Meditation meets Reality head on. It does not make escape artists out of its practitioners, nor does it paint picture-perfect scenes to trick the mind from what is true and real. Meditation merely teaches us to face what is existent with a better awareness and focus.

Meditation Myth #3 – Meditation is strange and bizarre.

Not entirely true. Admittedly, there are a few meditation practices that promise to take one on another “level” of existence, or claim to make you possess some psychic abilities. Some of these meditation practices even insist that their followers have gained powers afterwards. But meditation in its simplest form is basically a very uncomplicated mind exercise. It doesn’t require one to be in a trance-like state to achieve its goal of a deep state of calmness.

Meditation Myth #4 – Meditation is egocentric.

False. Even if meditation necessitates one to spend time alone, it does not mean that we are closing our doors for other people. Meditation is going to teach us to be able to see beyond the darkness in our lives. If we have achieved this, then we can be of better help to others.

Meditation is said to help people overcome negative thoughts and feelings like stress and depression. However, you have to be totally sure that you have unwavering fervor and sincere intentions for the practice in order to gain its benefits.

At The Natural Way and New Light Temple Spiritual Learning Center, we look forward to supporting you on your journey to “Living Your Wholeness.”

Opening to Your Spiritual Power…

Share

Until we awake to the fact that we are One in nature with Spirit, we shall not find the “Way of Life”.  Ernest Holmes.

meditation.jpgYou are a spiritual being with a divine soul having a human experience. Yes, that’s right! It’s not the other way around. When the master teacher said, “I am the Light of the World,” he was not referring to his human personality but to the innate Principle in each and every one of us. 

In order for you to open up to Spirit, you must first determine if you are closed. Being closed to Spirit can show up in a variety of ways. You may be working at a job you hate or, at the very least, one that doesn’t bring you much joy or fulfillment. You may be in a relationship that you know in your heart isn’t working anymore, or you may have failing health and you believe that there is nothing you can do about it.

If you want to open up to Spirit you must be willing to ask some serious questions. Questions that will help you move out of your comfort zone. Such questions as, am I enjoying my life, am I following my heart’s desire, and am I living the life I thought I would be living? The answers to these questions may be uncomfortable but necessary.

All life is about relationships and choice. The relationship we have with ourselves and the world around us. Take a look at what you have surrounded yourself with…your home, your friends, your job and/or career even the clothes you wear. 

The journey begins by going within. It requires that you look honestly, openly and with courage at yourself, into the dynamics that lie behind what you feel, what you perceive, what you value, and how you act. It is up to you to decide what it is you want to experience in life.

We are awakening to our true nature as beings of Light.

I look forward to supporting you on your journey of Self-Empowerment, Increased Prosperity and Wellness.
