Last night I was looking through some of my favorite quotes. There was a time when I was a voracious reader; I was also going through a rapid phase of personal growth. I pretty much only read for educational purposes, and I read A LOT, but only books that I felt expanded my mind and my understanding of life.
I blogged about Abraham and Ester and Jerry Hicks yesterday — they were the authors who really got me reacquainted with my emotional guidance system — what many call our sixth sense, our emotions. They talk a lot about how our emotions are giving us accurate feedback from the broader part of us (our soul, or as they call it, our inner being).
What is this feedback indicating? How in alignment we are with what we want, how far we are from it, and the intensity of our emotions tell us how fast we are going in one direction or the other. Or even more accurately, how in alignment we are with our inner being. They go on to describe that our inner beings are always only focused on the outcomes that will give us the most joy, and it is our work to come into alignment with that view point, which then creates that reality. It’s kind of like following the yellow brick road, but you are doing it not with action, but with your focus, attitude, and attention.
It brings a whole new light to the saying, "attitude is everything." How do we change the way we feel? We change our view point, our thoughts, and our beliefs to be more in alignment with our inner knowing — which is basically what feeling good is. Slowly but surely, and with a lot of practice.
While looking over some of these quotes, I was really appreciating the memories of those "ah-ha" moments, and appreciating the reminders. Hope you enjoy these, too!
