Revolution

"The greatest revolution of our generation is the discovery that human beings, by changing their inner attitudes of their minds can change the outer aspects of their lives."
William James

  1. When I, me and myself have a conversation on how transcending the ego, WE sometimes drink a toast to him.

  2. I just can´t follow. Maybe I don´t understand. At first, there was a lot of events in his generation worthly to be considered as a revolution. Secondly: who is skilled being able to change his attitudes of minds?

  3. Just yesterday I read this excellent article on "Creative Visualization":

    My AA sponsor always reminded me to stay in the moment (of today) and not to worry about tomorrow. My trust in a benevolent higher power has allowed me to let go of a lot of fears and worries. I guess it's hard to explain. It's an experiential thing.

    Interestingly enough, though - ever since I've told myself that I'm "taken care of", that "something good will happen, unexpectedly", when I've found myself in distress...sure enough, that's what happened.

    At one point, when my finances were terribly down, I received 4000 dollars in my bank account because the GEMA had credited me erroneously for a song by another composer. And I was allowed to keep the money (without interest) until it was paid off through my subsequent royalty earnings over the next 4 years, or so.

    The Hawaiians say, "energy flows where attention goes". And energy is the creative force that facilitates the physical manifestation of our thoughts and desires.

    The trick is not to worry about HOW my positive thoughts will come to fruition, but rather enjoy the comfort of knowing that everything will be ok.

    My job is to make sure that my controlling ego is not in the way of a superior creative force that knows everything so much better than I do.
