  • FOCUS ON THOSE WHO LIFT YOU UP

    in Spirituality

    JOIN MARA AND BOB TO DISCUSS THE QUESTION "DO YOU FOCUS YOUR MIND ON THOSE WHO BRING YOU DOWN OR THOSE WHO LIFT YOU UP?"  IT IS MORE LIKELY THAN NOT, PROBABLE, THAT THERE HAVE BEEN TIMES WHEN ALL OF US HAVE ALLOWED OUR MINDS TO FOCUS ON THOSE WHO PUT US DOWN, JUDGE US, TALK BADLY ABOUT US AND GENERALLY LEAVE US FEELING LESS THAN.  DURING SUCH TIMES WHEN WE BECOME OBSESSED WITH NOT BEING ENOUGH, IT IS NOT UNCOMMON TO ALSO INVEST TIME TRYING TO SHOW THE PERSON(S) "ABUSING" US THAT THEY ARE WRONG.  IN ESSENCE WE GIVE THEM OUR POSITIVE ENERGY AS A RESULT OF THEM TREATING US NEGATIVELY.


    THESE TIMES LEAVE LITTLE ROOM FOR POSITIVE THOUGHT---FOR HAPPINESS. INSTEAD WE ARE ACTUALLY WASTING PRECIOUS MOMENTS IN OUR LIVES FOCUSING ON NEGATIVITY AND OTHER PEOPLE WHO MISS OUR INNER BEAUTY.  WE DO THIS EVEN THOUGH WE HAVE NO CONTROL OVER OTHERS.  SOMETIMES WE WILL IGNORE THOSE WHO REACH OUT TO US IN KINDNESS AS WE WORK TO GARNER THE FAVOR OF THOSE WHO ARE BEATING US DOWN.


    THIS BEHAVIOR PATTERN DESTROYS THE NOW AND ALL WE HAVE IS NOW.  ITS TIME TO ACCEPT EVERYONE WILL NOT LIKE US AND HOLD CLOSE---LIFT UP---THOSE WHO TREAT US KINDLY, THOSE WHO DO LIKE US.  WHEN WE FOCUS OUR MINDS ON LOVE---WE RELEASE THE CONTROL THE NON-LOVERS HAVE ON US AND FREE OUR MINDS TO SEND LOVE TO THEM RATHER THAN EMPOWERING THEIR NEGATIVITY BY FRETTING OVER THAT WE CANNOT CHANGE.  RECLAIM YOUR POWER AND BE LOVE---STARTING WITH LOVING YOU.  


    People inspire you or they drain you.  Pick them wisely. ---Hans F. Hansen


    NAMASTE BOB AND MARA
