Random Thoughts to Reflect On

Goodbye is never the end. In the end, we begin again. Hello, goodbye, hello.

We may accidently make a foolish mistake, but we do not accidentally make it again. It becomes a choice.

Today’s version of you will awake tomorrow with a chance to do yourself better. Some days are easier than others to improve on who you were, but this, too, becomes a choice.

As you think, you receive. Your thoughts are vibrations that return to you as echoes, as circumstances in kind. That is because the universe acts in resonance with what you give it. It has no choice in the matter. Only you do.

Love conquers all, but so does fear. If fear is the one you feed, it will consume you. It will eat at your courage, your peace and your joy, leaving you a plate of misery alone to live on. Love is the feast before you. Fill of it and share it. Do not let fear to devour it instead.  Fear turns love to heartburn. Push it away.

If your heart has faith in God, your mind will follow. But it’s not the same in reverse. Faith expressed in the mind first does not filter easily into the heart. It may never get there, and so remain a mere hope or belief, subject to a shortage of power and magnetic effect.

Man has been given principles and standards to live by – the Ten Commandments, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, the Golden Rule – and free will to adopt them as guidelines. Choosing to adopt and adhere to them, however, is not our consistent modus operandi. Nor are we quick to learn that our sufferings are due to the errant behaviors we practice in place of self-control.

Not so commonly noticed is another set of guidelines, offered by Mother Nature. Witness, for example, that she never uses more than is needed to nourish and support her kin. Her expertise is also unmatched at fitting form to function. In nature, too, all that is required is recycled. Nothing is wasted.

Nature’s wisdom lies in its diversity, and yet it self-corrects to curb any movement toward imbalance, scarcity, or excess.

We don’t need myriad rules, regulations, permits, codes, and laws to govern how we live. We just need to pay attention to the natural ways of the earth.
