If you want to walk on the water, you need to get out of the boat.

If you want to walk on water, get out of the boat. Just what does this mean?

Many people go through life  wishing and hoping and never realizing you have to actually do something to make your dreams come true, and give your life meaning.

Although it worked for Isaac  Newton, you cannot experience life and hope achieve your highest potential by sitting under a tree and letting apples fall on your head. Many people today think they
are entitled to a wholesome life and all the trappings it brings. I have news for you. The world doesn’t owe you a living, you have to go out and get it, the same way the rest of us achieved whatever level of success we have.

Regardless of what you may think, most of us worked hard for a lifetime to enjoy the blessings of life we may have, and in spite of whatever hardships we are presently enduring, we wouldn’t have it any other way.

Life is meant to be lived, not by sitting idly around and letting someone else do all the work and take all the chances. You have to get out of the boat and swim for yourself. The mind and soul needs to be
continuously challenged so it can grow and evolve.

Nothing is accomplished when a being lives in a society where everything is taken care of for them and there are no challenges or reasons to advance oneself by hard work, critical thinking and enduring to make a better and more fulfilling life for everyone.

Many people today, especially the young are not challenged enough, they go through life in a daze because there isn’t anyone to challenge them to excel in life. thus they become depressed and angry, taking their anger out on the very people who try to coddle them by giving them everything
they desire with no strings attached.

No good deed goes unpunished.

Our Declaration of Independence clearly states that all men are created equal, this alludes to all mankind, not a particular gender or race. This means we all have equal opportunity according to our desires and abilities. It has nothing to do with having an equal lifestyle or income, that is determined solely by desire and ability.

When inspiration and desire induce one to excel in life and create prosperity in their lives, a perfect society will afford the opportunity for them to accomplish all they can, but it will not automatically give it to them, or punish them unfairly when they succeed.

The future is promised to no one, we each create our own destiny, if you decide to sit calmly in the boat, you have to be content as to where the Captain takes you, only when you get out of the boat and walk across the water of opportunity will you realize your true lot in life.

The_Wisdom_of_our_An_Cover_for_Kindle

There is an extreme shortage of common sense in today’s world, When looking back in history, I soon discovered this has always been a problem, Benjamin Franklin once said, ”Of all the senses, common sense seems to be the one that is used the least.” As obvious as it may seem, many seem to be totally oblivious to it. Most, if not all of the problems the world faces today could be solved if people would just sit back and think about what would seem to be the most obvious and simple solution to any issue. Often times people tend to overcomplicate the issues. I often think back to what my parents and grandparents believed and said, at the time I thought they were totally out of their mind and ignored it. I now wish I would have listened and followed their advice. It is now evident they were a lot smarter than we gave them credit for. Many times, in today’s world, the schools and universities can no longer be counted on to teach truth and values that will guide someone through life.

For a Brighter Future, Let Go of the Past

Let go of the past

As we enter a new era brought on by the completion of the Mayan Calendar, it becomes even more important to focus on what we want and not on what we are now experiencing.

Current world events and the obvious direction most people are heading makes it imperative we chart our own course and ignore the direction the media and the politicians seem to be pointing us toward.

The common misconceptions in today’s world will only lead to failure and personal hardship. Many people have fallen away from the good common sense exemplified by our elders, the laws of nature that must be adhered to if one is to lead a happy and successful life.

It is time to purge all negative thinking from your reality, to think negativity will only bring on more negativity. In today’s world, we each need to chart our own course regardless of what the popular opinion may be.

Whether you’re thinking and talking about a tragic event or even a minor irritation, you’re working against yourself.  It’s very important to keep our focus on what we want instead of trying to avoid what we don’t want. There is a Law of Dominant Thought, which states that our current dominant thoughts control the direction we take in life.

Thinking about what we don’t want only gives that thought more power and brings it back into our reality.

We don’t attract wealth when we contemplate being broke.  We don’t get healthy by contemplating how sick we are. . . and how bad we feel.  Even if you talk about the event while mentioning a desire to change it, you’re still reinforcing the
negative event.

End of an Era

When you do have a painful experience, whether it’s an illness, the death of a loved one or even losing your job, the wound is real and you’ll find yourself talking about the incident often.  In fact, many people will ask you about it.  Thus, talking about it is only natural, and needs to be addressed.

Your mission is to put the event behind you as quickly as possible.  In other words, stop thinking and talking about the past event as soon as you can.  No one but you can determine what length of time is needed.  It depends on your unique
situation.  This isn’t about denial.  It’s about moving your life forward in a positive direction.

Today, and in the future, notice when you find yourself thinking and talking about negative conditions or negative experiences of your past,  unless, you want to reinforce your pain and suffering and create more of it in the days to come, this is the time to let go of it and immediately begin thinking about what you want.

Now’s the time to let go of the past, so you can tell a new, happier story in the future.

Enlightenment

At this period of time in the history of man, there is probably more individual searching being done into the theories behind the origin of the human race,what happens after death,the possibility of life on other planets, and what our relationship is to these life forms, if they do exist. There are millions of people who are questioning the existence of God, who he really is, and what is my relationship with him? Is he someone who mysteriously floats around on a cloud watching and judging us from above like some bigger than life Santa Claus, or is he, like many of the esoteric sciences claim, a part of our inner Self, whom we have constant contact with, someone whom we and everything in the universe are connected and are thus one? Each of us in our own way is experiencing what God is, and thus we are each a part of God, thus we are God! This book is a brief account of my search for my own truth as I know it today, everything stated actually happened, according to my own perception. It has been an exciting search, at times very frustrating, very rewarding, and above all, very fulfilling. My main purpose in writing this book is to show that anyone, even a bashful unfamous country boy can have these awakenings, you don’t have to be rich or well-known to find your connection to Divine Source.
