The Universal Order of Life

Sometimes things have a way of working out. I believe there is a Universal Order where everything unfolds with a purpose. Yes, I believe in fate and destiny, but equally important is the free will we have been given to make choices and decisions as we live our journey of life, and also what we think. Without getting too "preachy" here, I believe God has a plan for us, and it's our job to take what we have been given and make wise choices. Personally I happen to be in a very positive phase of my life, for which I am grateful. Even when faced with interesting challenges and "situations" I practice positive thinking and demonstrate what Emmit Fox called a "mental equivalent" to the desired outcome. Somehow, things just seem to fall into place. Put positive thoughts out there into the Universe. Banish any negative thoughts and energy from your mind; they only attract the same. We all have the free will to decide what thoughts we allow to fill our minds. If you allow negativity to fill your mind, that's what you'll get. You get the idea. I've been meditating about a particular situation, seeking the answer of how to handle a matter. I did not dwell on the potentially negative aspects. Instead I remained utterly focused on the desired outcome. I envisioned in my mind what a happy solution would look like. Imagine my delight this week when exactly that happened. It wasn't how I expected it would occur, but nonetheless it is resolved. Once again I am grateful to be blessed with such positive karma. If you are dealing with challenges in your life remember to remove all negative thoughts from your mind. Verbally speak aloud to yourself what you want to occur. Remember that the Universe is always listening. Open your mind to allow the impossible to happen and you just may be surprised. My favorite piece of Buddha wisdom is "We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make our world".

Great and wonderful words, Rick.

I don't believe in fate, but I do believe in destiny.

I believe in fate and destiny, and everything happens for a reason, just sometimes is very very hard to think of that while going through it. Going through it now, and I know down the road, I will say, oh, ok, I understand the reason now.
