Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not
understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded.
But trust me, in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself and
recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before
you and how fabulous you really looked….You’re not as fat as you
We are so much more than just our bodies, our brains, our fingers and toes. We are spiritual beings living in a physical vessel that needs maintenance and the occasional tune up. We wouldn’t think of driving our car without ever changing the oil. We can’t drive it anywhere without the proper gas in our tanks. So why don’t we feel the same way about our bodies? Our mind and our spirit is contained within this amazing vessel we travel around in. Yet we seem to ignore what it has to say to us. It’s constantly communicating with us, everyday, every minute, every second.
Spend more quality time with yourself. A lot of people are quite uncomfortable by themselves. They always need company and when they are alone they try to avoid themselves by getting occupied doing something else. Quality time alone means shifting your attitude from ‘not being around anyone’ to ‘being with myself’. Take time to listen to yourself, observe and write down your thoughts, feelings and ideas.
Disconnect your devices and connect with yourself again. We are getting so connected to things and systems that we are gradually disconnecting from ourselves. Internet, personal mobile devices, PCs, TV, phones, whatever, have not only consumed our free time but have consumed the relationship with ourselves. Sitting in a waiting room anywhere, you always see people who haven’t raised their eyes once from their mobile phones in one hour – texting, playing, etc. Put down your phones or whatever and absorb your environment, think, imagine, create in your head.
“You do not become good by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you, and allowing that goodness to emerge. But it can only emerge if something fundamental changes in your state of consciousness.”
This is a very profound statement and I believe the way you begin to change your state of consciousness is by first becoming aware and secondly learning the simple art of gratitude. Gratitude is the surest way to bring more abundance into your life. If you want more, you must be grateful for what you have first.
