Cooperation, Collaboration, Not Competition

Cooperation, Collaboration, Not Competition

I can tell I’m making progress. (Progress not perfection is the name of the game.) I don’t compare myself so harshly to others anymore. At least I don’t automatically default to a “less than” mode from a “less than” mode. The old me quickly folded in the face of competition, even when no one was competing with me. I was quick to defer, shrink back, not put up a fight – even when no one was fighting with me.

Live for Today

Live for Today

Cause and effect is what Ernest Holmes talks about as the basis of New Thought philosophy – what I think, feel, and do today (cause) will link me to what I experience in the moments and years to come. (effect) Less focus on what I will experience in the mystery of the afterlife… more focus on the heaven and hell that I will create right here on earth, based on what I produce for myself by my thoughts, feelings, and actions.

Yeah, But

Yeah, But

Don’t you hate it when you try to help people by showing them the nature of their wrongs and the errors of their ways, and they don’t see it?

. . . The old me actually felt compelled to try to “help” others in this manner. I just couldn’t resist sharing my insights with them, not that I tried all that hard to resist, because it was so clear to me what they needed to do.
