I dislike housework.
Clean houses work for me.
It isn't my thing to do.
My house is neglected because I don't want to clean.
Dog hair and dust distract my ability to function mentally.
I clean. Just enough to let me think.
I dislike paying the bills.
Actually, I dislike opening the mail to get to the invoices that require recording, filing and/or paying.
Actually, paying bills before they are due is rewarding.
Knowing I have the income to afford this lifestyle I choose.
I just hate the paperwork that becomes my job because I pay the bills.
I dislike doing laundry for others when they can do it themselves.
I actually like seeing the wrinkles disappear while ironing.
It's helps satisfy my need for neatness.
After the machine does the cleaning.
Doing too much for others makes them weak.
If I volunteer to help
and suddenly find that particular job becomes an expectation,
Get strong. Be responsible. Take care of yourself.
And give me plenty of space to do my thing without you.
My life depends upon it.
No one knows you like you. No one. You own your thoughts. Yet are they YOURS.
Only you can go within to know the truths of YOU.
Whatever method you choose; nature, a quiet space, your car alone, on a jog--it's yours.
It may take practice to free your mind of thought. It personally took me envisioning the flowing path of air throughout my body as I breathe in and out to free my mind of thoughtless chatter. It works.
A minimum of ten visual breaths with a mind free of thought bring tranquility and ground me each morning before I read, write and reflect.
Going within is spiritual for me. I connect with a universal mind, higher power, God.
We are each unique with experiences and perceptions that shape our beliefs. Ultimately they should feel good, serve you and the world in peace, love, respect and acceptance of diversity that sometimes we find difficult to understand.
Diverse means "unlike" yet perhaps we are more alike than we know with our truths that emerge from within.
When you choose clothes, do you select them to please others?
When you make your choices from the menu or decide what to eat do you choose what pleases others?
Buying a house or furniture? Do you choose a home, neighborhood, or furniture that would suit others tastes and lifestyles?
We could go on with numerous choices that define who you are.
The point is, you are responsible for all of your choices. From mates and friends to the items you put in your house and mouth--right down to the car you drive.
What about your beliefs in where you came from?
What is your individual purpose?
What happens when this physical lifetime expires?
What are your beliefs?
Is it the result of what other people have told you to believe?
Is it your truth?
How do you know?
Connect with your Higher Power.
Feel the truth.
Then you will know.
"What do you mean you meditate!"
Response from family member. Common, actually.
From those who may not understand what going within does.
Always hope for them!
Had to design a method that works for me.
Tough getting there.
Martha Becks great advice in one of her brilliant books to one of her clients to 'breathe through your big toe" got me started.
Get alone. Create a private time and let people know it's private!
In a comfortable spot for YOU.
Quiet, or whatever soothes you internally. (I wear Bose Quiet Comfort headphones for silence when needed, always!)
Sit in whatever chair or surface that supports a cross-legged, upright position.
(I use huge wing-chair. Supports back and knees to maintain position.)
You will figure what is right for you to clear your mind.
Fresh air in . . . stale air out.
A few minutes is better than none.
Peace. Love. Hugs.

The words are valuable truths about each of us.
I have read numerous authors whose words
have changed me forever.
Helped me discover my beliefs.
"I am whole
happy." The Master Key System written in 1912,
When I am out in the fresh air warming up to jog I set the tone with
these words to myself.
We are what we think we are.
Our beliefs (seeds) give way to our thoughts (nurturing growth of seeds)
which result in our reality (plant).
Change the seed (belief),
and change the outcome (thoughts; actions).
Which indeed changes our life.
It truly IS that simple
provided we take the action necessary
for our seeds to take root
and trust them to do so
with the acceptance of the system we are all united with.
The power of the universal mind at work; higher power; universe; God.
We each have this within us.
Our souls are our connection
with universal mind, higher power, God.
It is through this our spiritual beliefs emerge.
Unique for each of us.
Like our DNA or fingerprint.
We are each unique. We are each . . .
Whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, happy.
So if you didn't know you were,
Change your beliefs,
Change your life.
Here's to loving life!
"Is it not wonderful
that man [woman} has such tremendous power
such transcendental faculties
concerning which he [she] had no conception?
Is it not strange that we have always been taught
to look for strength and power without ?
We have been taught to look everywhere
and whenever this power manifested in our lives
we were told
that is was something supernatural."
Your words are longing to be perceived, Charles F. Haanel!
SUPERNATURAL works for me!
For when I go within
there lies the truth of who I am.
What I was born to believe
without conforming to without.
Living my truth always feels free:)
Writing makes me smile.
The release of truth soothes my soul.
Coming from within, always.
Yes, I believe in a Higher Power.
My belief is this almighty power
that guides us
lives within each of us.
Ours for the seeking.
It feels good.
This freedom to be and do
fulfills a purpose.
Living the life I was born...
that serves others to feel good
about who they are.
