What is the meaning of it all, or our existence, that is?
In our so-called lives, how do you see yourself going through this space in time? You are the generator, the source of power within. You create and enjoy. Happiness does not come externally; in this case, it is internally manifested.
How you go through your life depends on how the body is functioning. Live not by the hands of the automatic pilot, nor the controlling attempts of others – no!
Experience more out of life, in every waking moment you have – right here, right now!
The term or word motivate is defined as; to provide with a motive. Oddly enough motion is defined as; the act or process of moving. Motivation is the mental fuel to help all of us get to our desired place or goal. We must have a belief strong enough in ourselves to manifest physical action, a clear path or goal, Writing this down helps us create this, and posting it on a mirror or refrigerator door helps remind us that action is needed and it stems from with in. The aid of a personal trainer or other means is a valued asset.
Your efforts however are the only way. No magic pill, drink or lotion to be applied here. A true test of character is what we do when no one is watching. Always do your best and good things will happen.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves,’Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of god. Your playing small dosen’t serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shirking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of god that is within us. It is not just in some of us, it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
We are not compelled to meditate by some outside agent, by other people, or by God. Rather, just as we are responsible for our own suffering, so are we solely responsible for our own cure. We have created the situation in which we find ourselves, and it is up to us to create the circumstances for our release.
