Change your thoughts and you can change your world. An unrepentant cliche, right?

And yet almost every self-made man will tell you just how important thoughts are. Alongside a lot of self-proclaimed gurus.

I am neither. But I can tell you that thoughts are extremely important.

What you think you become. What you think shapes your emotions and actions.

Ultimately, everything you are and have is the reflection of what you think about.

Or how you think.

That’s the trick I guess. How to think. What to think about.

Dreams do come true, if only we wish hard enough. You can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it. J.M. Barrie

What I realized recently is that we seldom live in the present. We are haunted by mistakes from the past. We are terrified about the future.

We do not realize that the past is just a story. Feedback. That’s it. The future is yet to come.

That’s our power. The here and now. Doing our best at any given time.

That’s the main ingredient for happiness, success, and all the other things that seem to elude most people.

We are what we think. And we must be careful, for our thoughts alone create the reality that we live in.

That’s why I like to say that life is just a matter of perspective.

You can only see what you expect to see. You can only achieve goals that you set for yourself.

Simple, huh?

I don’t want to confess that I’m an obsessed fan.  But I’m an obsessed fan.  I love your blogs.  I love your writing, I love your heart and your soul.  On some days, that is.  On some days I wait, hoping you will write, say anything, even if you think it isn’t good.  On some days I watch for you, encouraged that you’ve popped your head out even just for a few minutes, to say something to the world.  I don’t even care if you’re saying, “I hate the world, I hate everything, I hate you, fuck off.”  It means you’re alive and I’ve felt your presence another day.  It must be true because I miss you when you don’t post.

Sometimes all I want to say to the world is “I hate the world, I hate everything, I hate you inasmuch as you are part of the everything, fuck off.”…

SUNRISE

My love is made out of three things: the dawn, the sunrise, and redundancy. I poured you two glasses, which can easily and efficiently be drunk out of one cupJarod Kintz

*SUNRISE*

Just when I thought it’s already late

The mystery was revealed

The point when a knowing pops up

And chooses stays forever

The point when I saw the sunrise

Just when I thought it was too late

I awoke to the wonder of “passionate”

And then to the wonder of an improved me

Just when I thought it was too late

The mystery was revealed

Revealed on a plateau of reality

Don’t tag this “long overdue” I beg of you

For there have been moments in this very existence

I felt flashes of glory’s presence with such clarity

Which has made my act of hope a spectacular one

Hope of not ever standing frozen in time

Frozen and locked up in a Force beyond delineation and explanation

And at the same time, one without description of “how we got here”

The wishes has always being to ease into victory

Painting my face on the surface of history

And owning an archive of painted pictures of “the reality came by”

How I treasure these gifts given

Even though I know not how to utilize it all

Well I never seek to figure them out on my own

For this gifts are like the rainbows

found at unexpected times

I am not sure of what actually happened

All I know is I moved into a pure awareness

At just the right moment

Having a renewing of spirit

With a huge lift to a higher point.

I kneel in silent awe at the awesomeness of this SUNRISE

For the time was right and the day was here

Excerpt from the Revised Edition of ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING – Keith Harrell

“We are not permanently burdened with the baggage of our pasts. We can leave that luggage behind. It’s OK to clean out the suitcases and take the good stuff that wears well the happy memories, the hard-earned experiences, the lessons learned, the joy of a first love. But the rest of it–the sad times, the loneliness, the broken heart, rejection, fear–you don’t need that emotional baggage. It can only mess up your attitude and your life. Leave it on the doorstep of the past, and step into the future. History does not have to repeat itself, not if you adjust your attitude by turning away from the doors that are closed and walking through the doors that are opened to opportunity.”
