As I ponder this thing called Life, my lazy mind once again asks what the point of all this inner work is.
You see, the concept of time is one of great importance to me. I want to ensure I am using my time as the sacred tool in which I can continuously unlock my greater good.
My lazy mind wonders often what the best way to use my time is. Do I strengthen my mindfulness skills and learn to be more present in the moment? Should I use my time to reflect on my life’s challenges and look for the silver linings that resulted? Or maybe I should write list after list of all that I am grateful for…
I observe how, much like many others, much of my time can be spent trying to combat the self defeating and limiting thoughts that attempt to take my time hostage. I am learning to catch these unhealthy thought patterns and instead make a conscious effort to observe my thoughts without judgment, dropping more into the present time.
When I choose to practice Mindfulness, I can allow my connection to my environment, to others and to my higher Self flourish. While this is greatly rewarding I do also ponder, can that be all there is?
I am quickly reminded the answer is no and remember New Thought teachings that resonate so deeply within. I can make the radical decision not to stop here in thought but to radiate greater goodness in all that I do, for within us all, is the ability to create. We must discover for ourselves that there is a creative power that lies within and allow IT to unlock our wildest dreams.
We no longer have to just push through these moments that make up this thing called life but rather we can create new thoughts that are divinely pure and vastly promising, bringing them forth to the present time. When you radiate goodness in all that you do you will soon realize the author of life is found within you.
