Carve Your Own Path - Breathing Space Blog

The most effective way to compete in this world for jobs, lovers, and that which is coveted, is to not compete at all.  Don't compare, analyze, or dwell upon whatever others are doing.  But instead create your own path -- your internal guidance system -- and have faith that your way will work.

Widespread A.D.D. - Breathing Space Blog

We've reached the point where a typical person in our society now has Attention Deficit Disorder, culturally induced. The rising decibel level in public spaces, as documented over the last 25 years, all but confirms that our society has embraced a perpetually higher level of noise. Added to that, the number of messages that each of us is bombarded with on a daily basis has no end.

From billboards, to bus panels, to ads over urinals, at all times, in all places, someone is vying for our attention. E-mail and the Internet have exacerbated the problem, but even those who are not online and not wired are subject to cultural Attention Deficit Disorder. Why? Because the general level of message bombardment in our society is exceedingly high.

Retrieve a person from a primitive society, someone who has never been exposed to television or telephones, or, if you could, retrieve someone from 1918, and today’s information bombardment would have immediate impact: I would be surprised if such visitors to our culture did not have near-instant nervous breakdown.

Wayner Dyer: Wishes Fulfilled - Breathing Space Blog

Note from Wishes Fulfilled: Mastering the Art of Manifesting, by Wayne Dyer

* The ability to feel and to trust in our divine connection is exactly the key to manifesting, your “wishes fulfilled.”

* We can develop this ability to trust despite the absence of physical evidence as perceived by our senses.

* No matter the circumstances or obstacles, draft your dream and the way can be cleared.

* Trust your divine connection, know that your soul has no limits and the universe responds and works with you to manifest that idea into a physical reality.

* Feel the connection, focus on what you have to give, have faith in your dreams, and you will overcome all doubt and make your wishes reality.

* Faith is the complete reliance on the power and goodness of Spirit and the firm belief that you are always connected to this goodness.

Faith versus Doubt
* Always affirm your faith and not your doubt.

* When you affirm that things might not work out, that your troubles continue to mount, that your problems are insoluble, that God has not been listening, or that you are powerless in the face of so many struggles, you are affirming doubt rather than faith.

* The ability to know faith and affirm it allows it to manifest in your life.

* Learn to affirm your faith in the face of doubt with thoughts that things will work out, things will improve. Think, write, and say affirmations like these:
        I intend to create prosperity.
        I’ll do what is necessary to eradicate this problem.
        I know I am not alone.
        I have faith that all is for good.
        I give no energy to the negative because I know all is in divine order.
