Most of us sense we were born for a Purpose. Yet, many of us, are disappointed that we haven’t achieved our purpose. I have been studying a course on deliberate creation. The author, Dr Robert Anthony, has pointed out that happiness is a signal from the Heart (inner guidance system) that we are “on-Purpose,” also likely feelings of fulfilment. Dr. Anthony has 8624 likes on Facebook and has spent 30 years unravelling the mysteries of “success.” He also suggests that we likely have more than one purpose in life. I have often quoted Dr. Viktor Frankl, who believed that we don’t hang around with Freud’s will to pleasure, prominent in children. Frankl suggests that, as we reach adulthood, we have a will to meaning as multi-dimensional beings. Frankl stated: “The meaning of life is derived in taking responsibility for the challenges set before us.” Frankl also stated that we can’t pursue happiness but we can pursue a reason to be happy.
Dr. Anthony said that happy thoughts precede desirable things happening in our lives, Really, he is saying: “If you think happy thoughts, you have pleasant feeling and pleasant outcomes in life, because this is in line with your Purpose, in a vibrational sense. He also said that if we have grouchy, angry, or sad thoughts, these are followed by low frequency emotions and that our emotions are the indicator that we are not on Purpose, moreover, you are contributing to the troubles in your world. So thoughts precede emotions and emotions are signals that we are ON or off purpose in our lives. I my previous post I noticed that we live in an environment of detractors, whether parents, teachers, movies, TV, and Dr. Anthony backs these ideas with the laws of Quantum physics.
So, as the title of this post suggests, we need to be deliberate about the quality of our thoughts, which isn’t easy. We have well entrenched habits of thought around daily events. Our language has a load of misnomers and detractors. Nevertheless, our thoughts are followed by emotions, indicators of ON or off Purpose. “Oh well,” we think it’s only a little mistake. But, let’s realize that a BIG mistake, is a little mistake at a high speed, making it frequently. We must get real and deliberate, because our Purpose is at stake, therefore participation in creation is at stake.
Ghandi said: “Be the change you want to see the world.” If that is to happen for me, I have to watch my thoughts as precursors, to my feelings. He didn’t say: “get angry, or horrified by things in the world.” If my feeling is off key, I must reach for a thought that makes me even a little happy, and with what’s happening in our society, this is a big job. Nevertheless, we must be deliberate. Does anyone want to be unhappy, unfulfilled, feel dis-couraged? I think our Courage is like a muscle. If we work at it, we will be strong. Recently, I promised, someone I love very much, that I would be a “good news” person. After all, we can only change the world one person at a time. I am more inspired these days because, I observe more and more people wishing to be inspiring. I admit the detractors have the majority but the tide is turning, as more people are on a positive wavelength. We need the Power of Positive Feeling but our thoughts need to be optimistic or compassionate, disappointing things in society.
If this seems too hard, compassion and even self-compassion is a good place to start. See my very first post on this post on this. When we are aware in the moment, we have the time to adjust the dials and “search for the thought that feels best now” and we will be happy (on-purpose) now!
