Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You'll get by...
If you smile
Through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the Sun come shining through
If you'll just...
Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you'll just...
Life is a reflection of what you believe. And in the mirror of life, just as in a physical mirror....if you want to see the mirror smile back at you...you must smile in the mirror FIRST!
WHAT YOU PUT OUT, IS WHAT YOU GET BACK.
Each morning you can CHOOSE to create your life to be as you wish....Say this to yourself:
I AM Happy.
I AM Loved.
I AM At peace.
I AM Healthy.
I AM Abundant in all that I need.
I AM Part of everything that is.
Always be positive, and remember that everything you experience is a gift...It is up to YOU to see the positive side of each gift.
You are ONLY limited by what you believe.
I know this is a grand statement...but it has been so stated in various ways by all the great masters. We think we are small, and we think we are victims of all that is around us....but it is so only if we believe it is.
As to why we are here.....it is very simple...there are no hidden secrets only special initiates can know....we are here to create, to experience life through our own creation, which is unique and different from all those who live now, or have ever lived. That is the purpose of all life, and that is the purpose of YOUR life.
This is the way personal creation of reality works..
Your BELIEFS cause your THOUGHTS and EMOTIONS.
Your THOUGHTS, through your EMOTIONS (FEELINGS), create your EXPERIENCES.
Your EXPERIENCES reinforce your BELIEFS.
It is a closed-cycle which gives you back in experience, what you put out in the way of beliefs. What you put out is what you get back. UNLESS you don't like the experience, and then you can CHOOSE a different belief. This is how free-choice creates a new path for you.
The pattern that many people find themselves in...repeating the same mistake (meaning unwanted experience) time after time...is because they are not choosing another belief system.
Consider a radio. You are completely (physically) unaware of the myriad of radio signals out there, which you can tune your radio into, but they are out there just the same, all the time.
Let's assume you enjoy listening to classical music while you are driving. Do you constantly switch radio channels every two seconds, hoping to enjoy two seconds of classical music? Of course not. You tune the radio to a channel that gives you the kind of music you enjoy.
Life is just that way....the universe is a combination of all possible outcomes and experiences....which we are unaware of the presence of, but we can tune to our own particular enjoyed "channel", and "receive" what we desire. Or, we can switch channels every two seconds like most people do - and get a little bit of what we like, and a lot of what we don't like..
Now, let me say - that the Universe does not care one bit, what "channel" you are tuned to, because the Universe is completely impartial....it provides for ALL possible experiences to you, and to everyone else, to "receive" what they choose.
Your tuning to a particular frequency to select what you desire (by focusing your thoughts and feelings), does in no way limit anyone else in their choice of what frequency to "receive"...... just as your listening to classical music in your car doesn't prevent the guy in the car next to you from listening to the Rolling Stones. They are personal choices, and personal experiences.
