You Get What You Are – The Daily, July 27, 2020

Abundance is everywhere in nature, and it is there for us to appreciate

“You are as good as anybody and better than most”

“Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at the moment.” 
― Eckhart Tolle

Why do we look for things we don’t want? This may be the ultimate definition of futility. Going out of our way to see things that are wrong in the world around us invites that energy into our immediate experience. It’s like saying that the world is a scary place and then deliberately walking down a dark alley alone to find evidence to prove that theory. Why bring it into your life when it wasn’t there before?

Look for what you want. If you want to feel good, fill your eyes and mind with things that make you feel good. It’s the opposite of looking for everything that is not what you want and filling your existence with that. If it is a choice, and it most obviously is, then make the choice that brings you joy and peace.

A Dog’s Nose Knows – Using dogs to sniff and detect different diseases is nothing new. Now a medical charity in England is attempting to train them to identify the smell of COVID-19. The charity, called Medical Detection Dogs, has successfully trained dogs to detect malaria and is partnering with the Tropical Medicine and Hygiene School in London along with Durham University for the project. Dr. Claire Guest, a behavioral psychologist and principal member of the charity, said, “The aim is that dogs will be able to screen anyone, including those who are asymptomatic and tell us whether they need to be tested.  This would be fast, effective and non-invasive and make sure the limited NHS testing resources are only used where they are really needed.” This could work well in airports and other crowded areas.

Dr. Guest continues: “We know that other respiratory diseases, like COVID-19, change our body odour so there is a very high chance that dogs will be able to detect it. This new diagnostic tool could revolutionize our response to COVID-19 in the short term, but particularly in the months to come, and could be profoundly impactful.”

Sounds like another wonderful project in the works.

Thought of the Day – If you think of what is good in life, you will feel better. Your body will work better and your mind will be calm. Give yourself the gift of looking for what is going well instead of finding ways to make yourself unhappy. It’s your choice to make.

Enjoy a wonderful day.

“Be careful what you water your dreams with. Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream. Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success. Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity for success. Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dream.” 
― Lao Tzu

Your Right to Complain

A cloudy day on the beach, the perfect time for me to dance and be free

Things aren’t going your way. Every time you try to do something, it seems like everything is against you. The luck just isn’t rolling in your direction.

You have every right to complain. It’s just not something you need to share.

Pollute your own space with negativity if you choose. Your negative judgments of how things are supposed to be aren’t helpful to anyone. Honestly, no one else cares.

People get on social media and complain that it is raining. Why is there a need to share this with anyone who happens to see it? Is there any enjoyment in spreading misery everywhere?

Accept It to Change It

You can turn your ship around if you aren’t travelling in the direction you want to go

As you read this, in this moment, take a look around you.

Are you okay right now?

What does your life situation look like? Is there enough food for you to eat, do you have a roof over your head, are you feeling safe?

If you can answer yes to these questions, then you are a very wealthy person indeed. If any of these is a no, then right now is the time to take action towards changing it.

You need to know where you are before you can get to where you would like to go.

Most of us have it pretty good. Compared to what our ancestors dealt with in terms of comfort and ease of life we have many advantages. We have electricity, computers, transportation, protection, and multiple other useful things that allow us to live with some security and comfort.

Now it is time to work on what is happening inside.

Assuming Your Identity

Mini was the smallest in the barn, but he also ruled the place. He had the right attitude!

We talk about not judging others, but it isn’t always practical in the real world. When someone walks into a room, within seconds you form a picture of who you think they are.

This is useful on many levels, mostly for safety. If someone comes in your proximity and they could threaten you in some way, it is good to be able to sense this in advance. Sometimes those feelings we get about others can save us some problems, whether they are immediate ones or not.

What are these judgments based on though? What is it about a person that allows us to form opinions about who they are and what they could mean to us without even talking to them?

Positive Expectations

We all came together in Costa Rica to become yoga teachers. We manifested the reality and I’m so glad we did!

The Secret was supposed to be the answer to all of our problems. If we just thought hard enough about what we wanted to see manifested in our lives, then we would easily attract all of our dreams.

How is that working for you?

There seems to be a new backlash now against the law of attraction, because so many of us tried manifesting and it didn’t work. When we looked out and didn’t see the new car in the driveway after a few months we figured it just wasn’t real.

Is it enough though to just visualize something that you want, repeating affirmations endlessly and the thing will magically show up?

There is something missing from how the law really works and what we were told to do.

Simplicity – Putting Ease Into Your Life

Just a bird, doing bird things. Life is simple if you want it to be

Do you ever wonder why it feels like nothing comes easily for you? You swear that someone put a curse on you, or that you have no luck unless it is bad luck, or you just aren’t meant to have good things happen.

When you begin to operate from this mindset, then you are fulfilling your own destiny.

You are actually making sure that things will never go well for you.

We don’t completely understand how powerful words and thoughts are. In every moment, we are creating our future through our energy.
