Spiritual Light

People are like stained – glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.

Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

…Charting a path for one’s life is incredibly important, and visualizing what is further down that path can keep us motivated despite the obstacles in our way. But the best way to proactively move forward is to concentrate our focus on the present. So many of us go through life in a fog; a virtual zombie-like state in which we are either lamenting the past or worrying about the future. Wake up, shake away those thoughts, and focus on the present moment. Remember, life is eternal, and time is always on your side. So embrace today and live it to the fullest!

The ladder of success is best climbed by stepping on the rungs of opportunity.

…And opportunity is all around us, at all times! The challenge is, we are typically not in the right frame of mind to see the opportunities swirling around us each day.

The first course of action is to shed the negative film which surrounds our thinking, muddying the waters. When we demand a positive outlook on life, and begin actively looking for the opportunities we need to move forward in our endeavor, the water becomes crystal clear.

Begin this habit: Several times a day, take a pause, look around, and say to yourself, “God has given me these opportunities which surround me right now; how can I use them to move myself forward?”

We can all recall the enormous opportunities which presented themselves at certain points in our life. Stop waiting for the next big one; look around with a new perception of reality, and see the opportunities hovering in every direction!

You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.

Acceptance of what has happened is the first step to overcoming the consequences of any misfortune.

James, William, Father of Am Psychology

—William James (1903; public domain)

…We have all experienced or done things in our lives which we wish could be undone. We dwell on, maybe even fantasize about, having the imaginary ability to go back and change what happened or the decision we made that led us down a certain path. When we catch ourselves ruminating about what could have been, it helps tremendously to remember that God sent us down that path for a reason. It had to happen that way! Everything we do while on this journey of life, everything we have been through, is and was done for Spiritual growth. Let us rejoice in that fact, accept the path we have walked along, and remain focused on the glorious road ahead!

Look for yourself, and you will find…only hatred, loneliness, despair, rage, ruin, and decay. But look for Christ, and you will find Him, and with Him everything else thrown in.
