Living A Limitless Life
What you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. – Goethe
We are limited, not by Principle, but by our own inability to see perfection. – “The Science of Mind,” page 197
Great athletes or performers know what they want, and they are willing to go for it no matter how difficult the challenge. As the above quote by Goethe implies, life does not end with a dream. Dreams are wonderful but we must be bold and act on them.
Ernest Holmes reminds us that the prodigal son remained prodigal as long as he chose to. When he returned to his father’s house, he was greeted with open arms. When we release limiting thoughts, we too shall experience a new life. As Holmes writes, “We shall build a new heaven and a new earth, not in some far off place but here and now.”
Recently I saw a poignant quote from the actor Michael Landon, who made his transition way too soon: “Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say, whatever you want to do, do it now.”
There are only so many tomorrows. No one can live our life for us. Each of us must make the choice to open ourselves to that still small voice and allow Spirit to express through us. To do anything less is to dishonor the gift of life we have been given.
Affirmation: Today, I sit in the silence and become aware of the still small voice that resides within me. I commit to living the purpose I am here to fulfill. I know I am blessed.
– Science of Mind Magazine, August 2017, Daily Guides, page 37
Yes there are only so many “tomorrows” just as there have been so many “yesterdays” that were not fulfilling cause I was just going through the motions, to day to day grind and not “Living”, Living the life that my heart desires. It can be difficult when one is “stuck” because of spending too much time dwelling mentally (and emotionally) on what could have been and should have been and why didn’t I do this or that or say this or that instead of focusing on making today better and making tomorrow even better steadily rising mentally and vibrationally.
