Wise Words of Self-Wisdom IV

I got the germs of the next few Seeds from my friend urban shaman Donna Henes’ blog on Beliefnet. She called them Wise Words of Self-Wisdom.

Joanne Siewert suggests, “Every problem can be solved with the proper application of the means at hand. Maybe not easily, happily, cheaply or painlessly—but it can be done if you have the will; you already have the means—yourself!”

Oh, it’s so important to remember this! Especially when we’re dealing with hopelessness or despair. Problems come with the means at hand to solve them. All problems. No exceptions.

One of the great truths of the spiritual life is that God most often doesn’t mail you a check to pay the rent, instead, what you get is an idea. Ideas are the currency of the Divine in our lives.

Not all ideas are implementable easily, happily, cheaply or painlessly, but I can assure you that all ideas are implementable because you are the precious being in which the ideas arise, and that means you always have yourself to take the actions needed.

10 Power Thoughts for a More Rewarding Life by Louise Hay

 Number 1 I choose to feel good about myself each day. Every morning I remind myself that I can make the choice to feel good. This is a new habit for me to cultivate.
 Number 2 I am always presented with new and wonderful opportunities. I flow with what is happening in the moment.
 Number 3 Love is the miracle cure. Loving myself works miracles in my life.
 Number 4 I am the creative power in my world. I express myself creatively as much as possible.
 Number 5 Good now flows in my life from expected and unexpected channels.
 Number 6 My heart is open. I am willing to release all resistance.
 Number 7 I am unlimited in my own ability to create the good in my life.
 Number 8 I keep my thoughts centered on what I wish to experience.
 Number 9 Life created me to be fulfilled. I now release all expectations, and I know that I am taken care of.
 Number 10 My joyful thoughts create my joyful world.

Wise Words of Self-Wisdom III

I got the germs of the next few Seeds from my friend urban shaman Donna Henes’ blog on Beliefnet. She called them Wise Words of Self-Wisdom.

English essayist Virginia Woolf writes, “If you do not tell the truth about yourself, you cannot tell it about other people.” Virginia Woolf was nothing if not a truth-teller so I value her insight in this category of life. It makes sense, doesn’t it?

If we are working hard to keep our untruths, a.k.a. illusions, in place, we will not be able to see past the illusions of others into their truths.

Even if you only tell yourself the truth—especially when you deal with painful truths—eventually you will live yourself right out of the illusions of the untruth into the power of your own truth expressed. This is the process we know as growth.
