Week 16 OH HAPPY DAY!

I was going to use the song This Little Light of Mine, but changed my mind, and decide to use this song instead.  Even though a religious song it is so beautiful.  A  perfect example of a light shining in a human voice.

I love this kid’s voice and the sound of this group from the movie Sister Act.  Such a beautiful voice.  It gives me joy just to listen to it.  I can feel my spirit sing with him.

KINDNESS

Something to share.  I think this blog post a must read this week written by Lori King in week 16, also these by  JeanSFiona and James Jowers.

 Despite my increased awareness for kindness this week there have been incidents that engendered an overwhelming sadness within me that rode along with kindness.  I know this is my old blueprint.  I have used the Law of Substitution yet I find myself in a yo-yo cycle.

Why?  And why now?  I examined these feeling following them to a deeper underlying source. It’s been 25  years, December 2, 1991, since I lost my dad to cancer, but deeper still the death of my mother when I was a teenager still in school. (35 years coming up Jan, 25th, 1981)

I still feel like that child in this place.  It’s yesterday, old blueprint.  I thought I had already dealt and made peace with this a few years ago. I’ve lived a lot of years since then having made the choice to celebrate the life they lived by living mine to the best of my ability.

 The Law of Rhythm.   I live, I grow, and I succeed through challenges and successes in the rise and fall of life.  I must practice, The Law of Dual Thought better.  I had not realized I let it slip.

Odd thing, it was not thought that took me to that place but an unrelated incident that triggered the FEELINGS which when examined led me to that root.

Law of Substitution   We cannot think about 2 things at the same time.  If a negative thought enters your mind  –  try to think about God instead.  If that is too big a reach at the time, use any fond memory or other pleasant thought.  Jesus, the master Teacher, said  “Resist not evil”  meaning turn from it and think about something else instead.

Law of Dual Thought

“Thought is a combination of ideation and feeling.  We can attach any feeling to a thought we want.”  

How does one attach new or positive emotion to such an event?  It is the emotion that caused me to stumble as my thoughts were not directly involved until I examined the “the feeling” in search of a causation.  Any advice?

This journey for me is about personal growth and achieving my dreams.  I recognized that my own thought process that I accumulated through time in the things learned in the living, the experience, my education and life and world environment needed work and reshaping.  My own perceptions and point of view held me back a barrier to “being” my best me.

I found this youtube list of uplifting song.  Enjoy.

  1. Thank you for the LINK Juneta. As I said you are a rock in the river, a stepping stone to greatness. I have enjoyed reading your posts and the comments you leave on mine. You shall overcome. Stay in the Light.

  2. The movie Sister Act has so many positive moments, and the song you selected is beautiful!

    How do you attach a positive emotion to an event? The answer I can offer is you must find your own way for each situation. I can make some suggestions that may help. My little sister died thirty years ago at the beginning of this month. She was 9 1/2. Periodically, I lament a brilliant young girl taken too soon by brain stem cancer. Despite that, she was at peace with her situation. When freshly diagnosed and prior to her first surgery, she comforted our grandmother with, “Don’t worry about me, Grandma. Jesus is with me.” About a year and a half ago, I learned she taught my dad an important lesson about forgiving oneself, and he was able to move forward from a place where he’d been stuck after his first son (my brother) died shortly after birth. In her short life, my sister lived more than many people do during a long life. She had no regrets. My periodic lamentations grow less as the years go by, not because I love or miss my sister any less, but I become more at peace with the positive impact she had in her limited time on earth. Then of course, she’s with Jesus. Why should I lament that?

    We all have a purpose for being here. I don’t pretend to know what my purpose is yet, but I do the best I can, and when I’ve accomplished what I’ve been sent here to do, God will call me home. (For anyone reading this, adjust those words to fit whatever belief system you operate within.)

    There’s always a positive side of a painful and sad event. In the case of the FIV/feline leukemia positive kitties I catch, the positive is healthy kitties in the neighborhood have a greater opportunity to lead healthy lives with less risk of becoming infected. For those specific kitties, they are spared a painful death. If I had the facilities, I could establish a rescue home for them, but I don’t have that capability right now. Maybe someday? We’ll see.

    For you, maybe the answer will come in a Sit. It’s there, and you’ll be amazed at its power when you discover it.
