Each of us, as an individual, is responsible for the actions of what we "create." No one else is responsible for making you feel angry, hurt, betrayed, or any other emotion. If we "choose" to feel any of these emotions, we cannot blame someone/something for creating that within us. Stop and think of what is happening before you react. You are totally and singularly the only source of how you feel. When we realize and live within this statement, we find our reality allowing our intuition to guide us through our life adventure. Yes, life is an adventure. It becomes what you "think or say" it is. Remember the saying "Be careful what you ask for, you just might get it."
Emotions are illusions that we create. Why do I say this? Emotions are not a "permanent" state of mind, they are "energy in motion". If we choose not to be caught up in those illusions, we can live our lives in the "now" and fully enjoy everything that is around us. If we choose to let these illusions take over, we live in the past and future brooding and asking "what if?, why me?, what did I do?" instead of enjoying the current moment. I'm sure you've heard the phrase "I'm worried to death about...." Read that statement again and see where worrying is taking you. You're body responds to what you are thinking and feeling. When you find yourself going into that thinking mode, stop yourself. Ask God or your higher power to take your worry away. It may seem hard at first, but if you continue to do it every time you find yourself going there it starts to be a part of your everyday thinking.
It takes practice and patience to reprogram the way you think and the way you look at situations; stop thinking negative thoughts and taking everything personal when someone says something to you; or reacting first, instead of asking yourselves what you want to happen from your response.
In the Bible God says "Ask and you shall receive". First you must be grateful for what you already have. You can be grateful for something that you don't even have yet. By thinking and saying it will attract it into your life. Feeling that you already have it amplifies the request. Be specific with what you ask for or you may get just the opposite of what you "wanted". The universal law of attraction interprets your request and will respond. Start out with a small request and put a time limit of "by the end of the week, or by the end of the month". You also may need to take action if doors are opened for you to achieve what you have asked for. Think and feel that you have already received what you asked for.
When our life choices are in tune with the universal laws and with what God wants from us; loving, sharing, and caring for our fellow man/woman, our lives will be a reflection of beauty.
I asked God to take away my pride. God said "No." It is not for me to take away, but for you to give it up.
I asked God to make my handicapped child whole. God said "No." Her spirit is whole, her body is only temporary.
I asked God to grant me patience. God said "No." Patience is a byproduct of tribulations; it isn't granted, it is earned.
I asked God to give me happiness. God said "No." I give you blessings, happiness is up to you.
I asked God to spare me pain. God said "No." Suffering draws you apart from worldly cares and brings you closer to me.
I asked God to make my spirit grow. God said "No." You must grow on your own, but I will prune you to make you fruitful.
I asked for all things that I might enjoy life. God said "No." I will give you life so that you may enjoy all things.
I asked God to help me LOVE others, as much as he loves me. God said..."Ahhhh, finally you have the idea!"
