    "Whether You Think You Can Or Think You Cannot You Are Right"-Attitude Rules

    in Spirituality

    This episode of Pneumatikos will explore the power of attitude in life.  A right attitude will allow an individual to soar as a eagle in life, and a poor attitude will imprison a life of high promise.  God will direct our paths when we allow him to lead us.  He will give us the courage to put off a wrong attitude.  Some poor attitudes are intergenerational in nature, while others are the products of wrong influences in the present.  There are still others of a more sinister nature that were carefully implanted into the souls of some so that they would stop wanting to rise and be hapless victims of the cult of the trivial.

    "Looking at Benjamin Franklin & Abraham Maslow" #562

    in Spirituality

    The adding of virtuous habits and the elimination of, well, not so good habits, has been, is now and will continue to be a hot topic for many people.  The adoption of virutes moves us toward eliminating "The Integrity Ga" that exists for most of us.  


    Moving through the literature on this topic yields some very interesting strategies given by some very credible authors.  I have no intention of even attempting to discreit the two authors I will discuss namely, Benamin Franklin and Abraham Maslow for I met (the writings of) these two men at two different times of need.  Each man took me to a higher place for which I was very grateful.  Their writings and strategies, however, left me with questions and a lack of fultillment; I knew there was something better; something more.  


    My invitation to you is to join me in this message; it's my journey and the journey of many others.  Perhaps this will save you some time in your path to a more contented, fulfilled life.  The journey isn't supposed to be hard; in fact, it's a joyous one.  Let's look at Benjamin Franklin and Abraham Maslow to get some direction.
