A friend asked me the other day, “What do you call it when you start living how you truly feel rather than suppressing how you feel and living as you think others expect you to?”
I call it Freedom!
The problem is, most of us were taught to keep quiet and follow the social rules rather than to search our own hearts and souls for the God-given purpose we were born with. With this freedom comes great responsibility for we realize that no one else is responsible for our lives; we are the sole arbiters of our selves. Thus, WE are truly to be held liable for what we think, speak, feel and do. This awareness is what keeps us on track in personal and interpersonal relationships. This awareness is what creates the opportunity for, and the reality of, success (familial, social, personal, physical, emotional and financial).
It is funny that many of the things attributed to the devil are simply human foibles, or the refusal to take responsibility for them. It is MUCH more difficult to take the onus for your own Well-Being; but infinitely more satisfying and exactly what God intended.
You are an amazing creation.
The creative power of your Maker was placed in you from the beginning, and has never been rescinded! What you think, feel and speak matters! What you think and feel becomes what you speak. What you speak becomes your action. What you do becomes a habit and becomes your life. Literally, your thoughts and feelings are drawing the object of those thoughts and feelings into your experience!
You were created to be a dreamer.
You were born to be a creator. Why not think the good thoughts? Why not speak the positive? When you awaken to the fact that your thoughts, feelings and words create your reality. When you realize that you hold the control of your thoughts, feelings and words (no one can make you feel, think or speak anything), then you will take charge of those things and consequently, your life.
