There are qualities of mind to be disciplined if you’re to live and give as you’ve dreamt your life could be. Giving is the secret to living, and your potential to succeed with your wildest dreams is dependent on certain qualities working on your behalf. When undisciplined – these qualities run amuck and your cup is empty. There’s nothing to share because there’s barely enough for you to sip.
The First quality is Curiosity – curiosity may kill a cat (as the old saying goes), but it’s what has man fly the mountain tops with the eagles and eventually land on the moon. You have a great responsibility on your shoulder – what might you be curious about that could change your life and help improve the world?
The Second Quality is Imagination – if you allow this quality to run amuck, every Tom, Dick & Sally can influence you. Watch television – there’s thousands of influencers trying to grab your imagination’s attention. You can daydream glorious accomplishments or let them install nightmares into your stream of consciousness. Without proper mental discipline, their nightmares become your reality. Use your imagination to be a path-blazer, not a meek follower. Fill your soul with thoughts of joyful living and giving. Eat with those thoughts; sleep with them, rise in the morning with them.
The Third Quality is Will – the Power of your Will is immeasurable, but you have to exercise it. It won’t exercise itself. Yet so few put any energy into strengthening their Will. In this “instant gratification world” everyone wants everything for as little effort as possible. That’s apparent; just look at all the overweight folks wandering aimlessly these days; notice the ever-increasing number of government dependent beings, who more and more feel ashamed of themselves for not knowing how to contribute.
Now, it’s time to ask yourself, “What has this got to do with me?” Well, it has everything to do with you. Be not a gentle lamb seeking to be like a roaring lion when it comes to your life – be that roaring lion that can affect other roaring lions so that the world begins to work with a feeling of loving unity.
You are a rich and majestic child of Infinite Intelligence. You are here to contribute to the world in ways that you’ve not yet begun to conceive. Look at the stars? Each travels it’s own orbit in our galaxy; yet each star moves around a larger star called its “sun” … and all of that motion is in perfect unity. You are meant to be a star in this world. It’s time to get back on track. Imagine that!
You are far more valuable to the evolution of humanity than you yet believe. Have faith in that fact, and begin Imagining all that you would do if you were to use your Curiosity and Power of Will effectively. Am I a madman by insinuating that you are an extraordinary being here to reveal and share all that is good and beautiful about you? No, I am not; but you are a madman if you scoff at that ideal and refuse to make it real.
