LIFE IS TOO SHORT? WHAT A BOGUS CLICHE
Good day and I hope you are having a great day . Today’s post is prompted by something I heard on the radio. I heard that “life is short”. That got me thinking, What a cheesy way to think about life. We hear that cliché and ones like it all the time. “Life is too short” is usually meant to inspire us to live every moment to its fullest, but I just don’t like the way it sounds.
Being a student of The Law of Attraction (LOA) I am very aware of the power words can have. To be dealing with a cliché that has been long standing is even more dramatic, because it implies people are numb to it and accept it without question. I sure did for a long time until one day it just clicked. Life is only short if you are preoccupied with your past or are anxious about your future. If you are living life in the Now as suggested by Eckhart Tolle, life is not short. Life is full of adventures, full of blessings and full of incidences where you should be grateful.
Living life in the now, means appreciating the little things that you have in your life, like your health, family, and comforts. It also means taking on the opportunities that present themselves. It means going after what you want. It means visualizing the best for yourself. It means controlling your thoughts and emotions so incidences in life do not dictate how you feel, but you dictate how you feel. This means you dictate your future and your manifestations.
You can choose to look at things anyway you want. But the point of this blog is that the way you look at things have great consequences in your reality. Are you someone who sees the “what’s right” in things? Are you someone who controls their emotions when challenges arise? Are you a person that enjoys life to the fullest, and shares the joy with those you love? Are you someone that understands there are “no problems, only things do be dealt with now or accepted now” as stated by Eckhart Tolle in his book The Power of Now. Do you realize that it is only a waist of energy and opportunity to dwell on the mistakes of the past? Do you understand that everyone makes mistakes and that mistakes are stepping stone to success? Or are you the opposite of what I just stated? Do you see how I choose to look at things and more importantly since I am putting it on paper, I deliberately concentrate on things I want you to pick up on. The things I want you to concentrate on. The things I want you to do.
The only sad thing about this Law of Attraction, IS THAT NO ONE CAN DO IT FOR YOU. We may want it for you. We may visualize it for you. But we cannot take action on your behalf. So don’t muddle your life with B$#%% $*&%^# clichés and sayings that mean absolutely nothing and just bring your vibration down. Filter and pay attention to what you allow into your mind just as you would filter and are selective about who you allow into your home. What gets into your mind is exponentially more important and dangerous than who you let into your home.
