“It is better for you to take responsibility for your
life as it is, instead of blaming others, or circumstances,
for your predicament. As your eyes open, you’ll see
that your state of health, happiness, and every
circumstance of your life has been in large part
arranged by you—consciously or unconsciously.”
—from THE WAY OF THE PEACEFUL WARRIOR, Dan Millman.
I read the book THE WAY OF THE PEACEFUL WARRIOR
by Dan Millman about 3 years ago.
I was looking through my bookshelves and came across it again.
Then I remembered I was going to write something about his book,
in fact, a summary that would condense the entire book into a few pages.
Then as I was looking through the book again, I found 6 pages of
notes I had taken, plus notes on almost every page.
Why was this so entertaining and good for me to read?
I BELIEVE its philosophy!!! It’s that simple!
WHAT TIME IS IT NOW? (9:07pm EDT???)—-
Well NO it’s not….
The time always was, is and always will be NOW!
NOW is the TIME; the TIME is NOW!
Remember: The TIME is NOW, The Place is HERE!
Everyone answer these two questions over and over
in your minds.
1. What TIME is it?NOW!
2. WHERE are we? HERE!!
Stay in the present: THE NOW, THE HERE!
The WINNER is HERE, NOW!
See,,, I like that….don’t you?
So what does all this mean?
To me it means there is no time but NOW to start
accomplishing what you want it life.
NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT!!!
Can you visualize what you really, really want?
Can you tell someone, right NOW, what you really want in life?
What is it?
Write it down and keep it in front of you
all the time. Keep it on a note in your pocket. Keep it
on a daily calendar on your Smart Phone so it will pop up
at the start of every day, so you can read it and keep it
in your thoughts.
I know you’ve all heard, WE BECOME WHAT WE THINK
ABOUT – Earl Nightingale.
That’s why it’s so important to keep good thoughts.
In fact one of my (many ) favorite scriptures is:
“Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by
filling your minds and meditating on things true,
noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—
the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly;
things to praise, not things to curse. “
Each morning we should awaken to the GOOD NEWS.
What is the GOOD NEWS?
It’s the things we have in our
lives for which we should be grateful …
Then, start thinking about the desires GOD has placed
in your Heart. For the scripture says, “He will give you
the DESIRES of your heart…”
Think about it! What Desires do you have?
Write them down? Make them plain. Keep them
in your hearts (and in your thoughts).
I’m already at over 480 words so I need to stop for
But, I want to leave you thinking….
1. WHAT TIME IS IT?->NOW!
2. WHERE ARE WE?–>HERE!
So…let’s go out there and DO something good!
I’m trying to make the World a healthier/wealthier place.
You can too, If that’s your desire..
Then contact us and tell us about your desires.
We’ll happily listen.
