What are you doing with your mind?

“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.” ~John Milton

The mind is a powerful thing, and too often allow its running programs to take over and create our reality unchecked. How much better it is to learn to work with our minds to create a reality that works well for us.

What are you doing with your mind?

The courage of living out loud

One of the most courageous things you can do is identify yourself, know who you are, what you believe in and where you want to go. ~Sheila Murray Bethel

It’s so easy to float through life without answering these questions or taking a stand for them. Do you clearly know who you are, what you believe in, and where you want to go? What steps are you taking to live those realities out loud?

Seeing every thing as it is

“If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite.” ~William Blake

We see such a pale, distorted reflection of the world most of the time through eyes cloudy with learned beliefs of limitation, separateness, and lack.

So much of our movement into ever-deepening growth of the soul is learning to peel away those limiting beliefs to cleanse the doors of our perception.

As we do so, our vision expands to move toward seeing things as they truly are. Only then do we begin to glimpse the infinite, unified nature of all things.

What limiting beliefs are clouding your vision? How could you go about shedding those a bit more?
