When life knocks you down always roll onto your back. Why? Because if you can look up you can get up, and if you can get up you can still keep moving forward. Wanting something is not enough. You have to be hungry for it. I have a deep-rooted love for higher learning of all kinds. Formal schooling bored me but I love to study on my own and in my own way. Since I was a teenager I have loved travelling to new places, meeting new people and trying new things. To travel more is to know more, to know more is to be more, to cultivate the self is to grow, to stretch and to broaden into the best you that you can be.
I was blessed with an inborn consciousness of wealth. I feel am rich and lucky even though I don’t have much money at this time. I know I can attain any financial goal I set my mind to. I am a big thinker and I want it all, money, fame, glamour, prestige, public acclaim and a place in history! These are goals I am working on now. There are a few important things I have to do in order to attain these things. I need to break rules that others have imposed on me that have restrained, inhibited and controlled me. I need to go within find, love and heal the child that I abandoned when I was a young man and bring him with me as we attain these goals together. If I don’t he will sabotage me and anything I try to do will be unsuccessful. Another important thing that I need to do is to figure out how to provide the best service possible for the whole of humanity! I am hungry, I want to thrive, I want it all. But I have a higher calling and this is unaffected by material circumstances. Giving to others is so enriching and this has been reward enough up till now. But now it is time to really start and go for it.
Most people are not living their dreams because of fear. Fear limits vision and lack of self-esteem is what keeps most people doing things that they don’t want to do. The same reason why people can’t get out off a bad relationship where they are abused, unhappy or where it is unfulfilling. They can’t see themselves beyond that relationship. They can’t see themselves enjoying life, without that person. They think this is all that they can do. The same reason people get stuck at a certain level in life, they can’t see things getting better for them. They think this is it. This is all they deserve. This way of seeing and thinking has been passed on to them. It is no good me telling these people that they are right or wrong because that does not help. Instead, I ask you if you are in this situation is your way of seeing and thinking resourceful or not? If it is not resourceful then dump it and try seeing and thinking in a different way.
Fear is just energy. It has a purpose and that purpose is to keep you safe. But when it is taken too far it begins to take control over your life. It then becomes a monster that can destroy you, it will kill your hopes, it will put you in hospital, it will age you and it will hold you back from doing something that you know within yourself that you are capable of doing but it will paralyze you. It will make you feel like you are in a hypnotic trance. What is the benefit of letting fear hold you back? What is the benefit of giving up on yourself? What is the benefit of not standing up, pulling your shoulders back and taking life on? You want to be safe! The best way to deal with fear is to invite it up and let it go.
You can be, do and have anything you want in life. it comes down to how hungry are you for it. Will you pay the price for it gladly? If you say yes then you will have the power to jump out of bed every day like a child waking up on Christmas morning. You know that today is your day. You are always in the right place at the right time with the right person. Go and make your dream a reality. Until next time I wish you peace love and success. Martin Acton Sensei
