HAPPINESS – INNER PEACE – LIFESTYLE… my life now
True for you? "I can start LIVING my LIFE now..."
Living my life now is to live a life full of abundance, unlocking parts of myself that I didn’t know existed before. To some, living in abundance means financial freedom, (or health) but that is far too limiting. Abundance is possible when you find your inner self.
Are You in Control of Your Life?
“A desire to be in charge of our own lives, a need for control, is born in each of us. It is essential to our mental health, and our success, that we take control” - Robert Foster Bennett
On this site, the identification of your situation and the steps that can be taken to live abundantly are linked to the 3 dimensions of SPIRIT, MIND and BODY.
C. S. Lewis described the 3 aspects as follows: “What I call my 'self' now is hardly a person at all. It's mainly a meeting place for various natural forces, desires, and fears, etcetera, some of which come from my ancestors, and some from my education, some perhaps from devils. The self you were really intended to be is something that lives not from nature but from God.”
There are mainly 3 things that influence the way you react to what life is throwing at you:
“Ancestors” – your looks, customs and traditions which I have grouped under MY BODY;
“Education” – The conditioning process you’ve gone through since birth to fit into your circle in society and put under MY MIND; and
“Devils” – The spiritual or unseen realm. Most people are wary of this aspect because of their lack of knowledge and our scientific worldview. (MY SPIRIT)
Steve Jobs said: “You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”
We Are What We Repeatedly Do.
Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
