The Spoken Words of Spirit--November 17, 2011
What is life through the eyes of a pet dog like? They wake up and are looking to be loved, fed and cared for. Their day is spent playing, sleeping or getting into mischief, or having someone pet them which is equal to most people getting a massage or back rub. The only worries they have are giving love to anyone who shows them genuine affection, as well as to guard against those who are intruding on it. Life is simple and they know that survival in a domestic situation is enhanced with sheer love, both in giving and receiving. All of it is based on total trust in a Higher Power, although in the case of a pet, you are the physical higher power for them.
What if humans lived by those same basic tenets? There would be nobody unhappy because there would be no expectations of having that. You would wake up smiling, despite any pains or personal hardships because you would know that you are going to be immediately doused with appreciation for your mere existence. The burdens that hold most people down would be irrelevant. The piles of bills or e-mails and letters that need to be responded to would not seem overwhelming or even the least bit bothersome. In fact, you might even enjoy the challenge of dealing with them because you instinctually know that better days and better things are on the horizon.
While this lesson is a little playful, the message is still serious. Until you thoroughly change your attitude and actions so that they match the joyousness of living in a state of anticipated love, then you will continue to be matched up with the thoughts you have. In other words, you will attract burdens and problems, or you will attract the awesomeness of positive vibrations. Think about how much fun your life would be if you started each day off expecting it to be one filled with frolicking? In a sense, when you put your faith and trust into a Higher Power, you will be cared for, loved and nurtured so that all of your expectations and dreams can be fulfilled. Why not give it a try? The most important aspect is to do so steadily and with conviction and commitment. Otherwise, you are broadcasting that you would rather not fetch what makes you happy. These are the loving thoughts from The Spoken Words of Spirit.
