‘Break free from the “it’s good enough” paradigm!’ by Rev. Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith

Excerpted from Agape International Spiritual Center’s Daily Inspiration ‘Inner Visions’, September 12, 2018,
‘Try It On!’

Courage is the spiritual art of living dangerously.
Osho

When it comes to evolving one’s fundamental life structures, most individuals go through life experiencing an “it’s good enough” mindset.  Fearing that a shift in consciousness equals an unguaranteed outcome, they remain willing to settle for what they perceive to be the safety and security of predictability. More directly stated, it’s about living in the illusion that life’s outcomes can be controlled. Bottom line: A life philosophy of “It’s good enough” is a fear-based agreement with mediocrity.

Break free from the “it’s good enough” paradigm!  Dare to have the courage to trust in yourself, in life itself.  Try on a state of consciousness that allows you to discover that there is so much good, love, joy, peace, prosperity, and creativity yearning to manifest in your life once you give it permission to do so. Because when you do, there will be an energetic opening that will usher you into a whole new recognition of limitless possibilities, into an unconditional “yes” to this great adventure called Life.

What does this take?  Courage.  The courage to disrupt your comfort zone, to live beyond your coping mechanisms, justifications, rationalizations, manipulations, well-worn excuses that hold you back simply because you fear stirring up your life or what others will think about you. Trust that your life, just as it is, is a trustworthy path to evolving a deeper confidence in the truth that you live in a friendly universe that supports you in every way. Let your reliance be on the reliability of Reality, of Spirit, which are constantly offering you opportunities for enlightened action.

Go ahead—try it all on, even if you don’t know where it will lead you, what Teutonic shakeups will take place in your life, because when you do, you will gladden your heart with the realization that it’s all working together for your good with the full support of the Universe.

Affirmation:

As I free myself from mediocrity and try on my highest potential, I realize that it is a perfect, custom made fit.

Michael Bernard Beckwith

 

The Truly Unlimited Life by Kim Stanwood Terranova, ALSP

The Truly Unlimited Life

Life is an adventure.  A truly unlimited life is an adventure into the unknown!   If we choose, we can be conscious, willing adventurers that seize all the possibilities before us.  It all depends on where we hold our attention, in what we believe.  From our belief, we create.  So, let us create from the knowing that all sense of limitation is false and that  unlimited living is our birthright.

Limitation is a perception, because as we know, we live in an unlimited world.  As you look out into the world, if you look closely, you will see creation sprouting forth in so many ways!  The depth of the ocean is unlimited, the sky above is unlimited, and nature itself is completely unlimited!  Spirit is unlimited in all its creation and we are one with Spirit.  If I ever begin to forget and fall into the trap of limitation, the best solution is for me to immediately get myself out into nature. I hike, I walk, or sometimes I just sit and observe the ease and grace in which all the ways the Earth keeps creating.  I then remember again that all is well and abundant.  If I am one with God, which I know I am, then I am able to tap into the abundance, the unlimited nature of God.  This is where I choose to live.  It is our job to push through any illusion of limitation and see the unlimited opportunities that lie before us.  When we remember that we live in an unlimited world, then we will mold our choices and create a truly unlimited life!

So what are you choosing to create today?  A life of limitation or a full experience of unlimited living?   Remember that adventure awaits you at every turn, and you deserve to live an unlimited life now!

Affirmation:

I boldly stand in the adventure of life as I accept unlimited possibilities around each turn.

Kim Stanwood Terranova

“We are here to align our personal laws of life with the cosmic laws governing the universe and thereby flourish.”

A Life Worth Living by Jason D. Mitchell

Mindfulness. Everything in life is worth examining. 
Our ability to look at the world that we live in, including ourselves, has allowed humanity to evolve and transform both the world that we live in and ourselves. While we can, and should, debate the benefits of some of the choices we’ve made, what is absolutely true is the gift that this is for each of us individually. You do not have to wait on anyone else to tell you about your life. Whether we are in a physical prison, following the orders of prison guards, going through a PhD program completing assignments or working out with a personal trainer none of the individuals or organizations dictate what is happening within us.

Socrates is given credit for the quote, “the unexamined life is not worth living.” When this quote was introduced to me it immediately resonated and rooted itself in my consciousness. As I grew in my commitment to spiritual study the practice of mindfulness was introduced to me through the writings of Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. He has said, “that mindfulness is the capacity to be aware of what is going on, of what is there.” The more I practice mindfulness the more I’ve found the connections between being present and examining my own life. Our lives are the sum total of our thoughts and actions. As I am more present with my thoughts – about life, about people, about my choices, about my journey – I am able to bring a greater awareness into my choices. Rev Michael Bernard Beckwith teaches that, “choice is a product of awareness.” We can only make choices about those things that we are aware of. Sometimes we appear to be making choices when we’re really just running the default programming of our mind. 

Whether you give yourself to the practice of mindfulness, or another spiritual technology, it is essential for your growth, development and spiritual unfoldment that you increase your awareness of your own thoughts. Whether it is while you’re in a prison cell, taking an exam, having a conversation with your beloved or sitting at home alone; your awareness of your thoughts is key. You cannot change your life, or your experience of the world that we live in until, through awareness, you recognize the patterns. Once you’ve realized how you’ve been thinking you can elevate your thoughts, establish habits that are beneficial to your well being and step into a life worth living.
