How often do you ask the question, Why? As small children we are always asking, why. We want to learn the reason behind the information. We yearn to know.
As adults we may forget to ask why. We have become fearful of not knowing yet asking why will somehow let others know we do not know the answer. So what if you do not know. As an adult you would sternly tell a child that it is better to ask than risk getting hurt. That applies to all people.
Challenge the small talk that you have with yourself that keeps you in bondage to fear. Each person has the right to ask why. When you have the answer it becomes your responsibility to impart the wisdom.
Do you have intelligent conversations with yourself? Do you question your actions, asking the infamous – why? We can become so robotic, doing things so automatically that we often do not know the why. Perhaps your answer is because I have always done it this way. But WHY?
I have become a self observer and it is very interesting. Things I do so routinely, I am asking myself – why? Do my actions reflect who I am? Am I stuck in a past condition of reacting? Can I change willingly? Or will I offer resistance to myself?
I have learned to laugh at and with myself, especially when my actions are not representative of who I am today. At times I have accepted what others have told me to be the truth, unconsciously of course (smile). Or I go along on automatic because I am not required to think about what I am doing.
Practice being an observer of you today. Ask yourself why whenever you catch yourself doing anything that does not reflect who you say you are. This is a fascinating exercise and I know you will find value in doing it.
Why? Please record your responses. Peace be unto you.

Where is your focus, on the problem or the solution?
When focused on the problem you become constricted and rigid. You begin to tighten up, your thoughts and then your body. All you continue to see is the problem. There is no way out for you. The problem appears to get bigger and bigger, it consumes all of your rationale thinking.
When you pay attention to the solution you open yourself up to wondrous opportunities, suggestions and ideas. As you look and concentrate on solutions, they appear. Things you may have never thought of before comes to mind for you. The resources begin to arrive in perfect time. People are ready and eager to help, they have been waiting for you to recognize their gift to you.
Focus on, without becoming totally attached to the outcome, to the solution. Perhaps there is something much, much grander in store for you. By staying with thoughts of a solution you are willing to entertain ideas outside of the customary boundaries you would have placed on yourself.
Get a clear and concise picture of what you want to materialize. Do not judge your thoughts. Dream and visualize the best possible solution.
Next go into prayer and communication with God. Ask God for help in clarifying what it is that you desire manifested. Ask for guidance with the details. Be very specific with your requests. And wait for your divine answers. If you are unsure, ask God again. God will make it very plain for you so there is no misunderstanding of the direction you should take.
The final step is being Thankful for the resolution. As each step unveils itself, be Thankful. Offer praise for your answers along the way. Thankfulness opens the doors of possibility!
Enjoy the experience you are currently in, there is JOY within it and all around you.
Whatever the experience looks like resolve yourself to finding the beauty and joy in it. It may be hiding but it is there! You have the choice and care of creating your life. When JOY is what you desire then JOY will be manifested. It is always your very own choice.
Blessings sometimes come disguised as something else. Yet when you are always expecting JOY and a miracle, then that is what will be evidenced by you. Take for instance, no employment. This could be a time of great distress or you can make the most of it and discover a great gift that has been waiting for you to have some free time to show itself to you. Maybe you can learn to swim or learn to paint or construct another artistic object. This may be the golden time of your life. Remember it is your choice of how you will look at it, either a curse or a blessing.
Enjoying the experience may mean that you are currently living a single life. Well how about truly developing your relationships with the friends in your life. You now have the time to do things that you did not have time for before. Go out and meet new people. Get involved in an activity that you have put off until the right time. Enjoy your life and the experience you are currently in.
Age has absolutely nothing to do with it. Age is a matter of consciousness. I know an elder who says she is 16, however the way we calculate age she is actually 88 years young. But for her, she is 16 and loving life!!
Add flavor to your life by daring yourself to learn a new language or go to a new place just for the fun of it. Another friend of mine has recently relocated to the Southeast and he takes full advantage of his new environment by going out and learning about this new uncharted area of the United States he has never lived in before. He is having the time of his life.
Let us celebrate all that is good and very good. Let us keep our attention on the vastness of The Almighty.
Goodness is everywhere present. There is goodness in life and living. There is goodness in creation and recreation. There is goodness in death. There is goodness all around us every day.
There is JOY all around when you decide to notice it. Gradually more and more of my personal friends are telling me how incredible it has been for them to begin noticing the goodness that has been around them all the time that they had not noticed before. Like sitting at a pool of water and first only seeing the water in the pool but by consciously expanding their vision to include other objects soon they saw the trees, birds and finally the sky and clouds being reflected on the water.
Goodness is often not thought of when you talk about death or transitions but there is beauty and goodness in that person’s life. A wise elder once told me that as long as we call and say the person’s name they are never dead. So I talk fondly of all the wonderful souls that have blessed me with their presence for how ever long it was. When I catch myself doing something that reminds me of that person I remark to them how much I miss their physical presence but love that they are in my heart forever. Spirit never dies.
Goodness is all around us. We may need to do an adjustment on how we perceive something but the fact remains it is All Good All The Time!
Today celebrate all the goodness in your life! Be Thankful! Be mindful of your many Blessings! You are Goodness in Human form!!!
As I was sharing in conversation with my Godmother, Mother Elnor Abdullah who was a young 88 years, the following came up for discussion.
We must be about the business of discovering Heaven while we are still living this life. There is no need to wait and hope that death will bring us to a place of peace. Perhaps you will take with you to the other side exactly what you have created on this side. We can create that state of Heaven now.
We can create a place of Unconditional Forgiveness and Love. We can create a space of Complete Acceptance and Respect of others. We can build relationships built on Mutual Honor and Admiration. We can have Peace and Joy right now and right here on earth.
A state or an attitude of Heaven is being in a Higher Consciousness of who we are. We are the offspring of the Most High Creator. We are made in the image and after the likeness of Infinite Intelligence. Jesus said He came that we would have life and have it more abundantly.
Heaven is where we extend a helping hand to others in their time of need. Heaven is where we choose to honor the life of humans regardless if they look like us or not. Heaven is seeking and maintaining Peace in all situations. Heaven is being about God’s business, protecting and preserving all life forms. Heaven is a state of Consciousness that tells us we can.
Heaven is that serene place of comfort. Heaven is being a comforter and encourager to others. Heaven is pure and seeks after its own kind. Heaven is knowing your connection to God is real. Heaven is Love at the highest level of expression.
Heaven is my preferred place of residence here on earth.
Tall order isn’t it? Not at all. Have you ever heard: Know God – No Fear? Or you can’t worry and have faith at the same time.
So just for today practice the art of letting go all worry, fear based reactions, doubt and negative concern.
Each time something comes up for you that you find it difficult to focus on anything other than complete faith, stop! Re-focus your thoughts and energy. Take a deep cleansing breath and relax. Next picture the outcome exactly as you desire it to be. Hold that vision as long as you can. The worry will disappear. You may need to repeat this several times if you are not accustomed to projecting positive energy. The key point here is to remember to breath and relax. Allow the negative emotions to leave your thoughts and your body.
This takes practice and consistency. We unfortunately live in a world based and motivated on fear, so to counteract the effects you must be deliberate in doing this. Do not allow other people to tell you how awful things are. Do not listen to the negative hype.
Decide to rid yourself of all self limiting beliefs and ideas. You can have all that you desire and more! Remain open to receiving the goodness and there it is for you. The Universe is awesome and will respond to you in kindness.
Today I release all worry and fear. I allow the Goodness and Grace of the Merciful Creator to penetrate my core. I feast on God’s promises today. I know I can. I, like my Father, are creators. I create Joy, Love, Harmony, Peace and Happiness.
