How many times do we let old tapes and old stories determine how (or even if) we move ahead? Maybe we start something with confidence only to let the memory of Uncle Bert telling us we could never accomplish anything diminish our confidence. And before long, another thought that is similar follows along and we are soon derailed. Some of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we can't do something simply because we failed at it once before.
Most of us have heard the saying, "Whatever you can conceive and believe, you can achieve." Our beliefs are creating a mental mold that Creative Intelligence, Spirit, God or the Law (all the same thing) will rush to fill. That's what God does; It creates and It gives and It gives and It gives. We need to create the mold we wish to experience. We need to uproot our old beliefs and choose something new. It's time to dream big.
I love this poem by Meister Eckhart:
"I could not bear to touch God with my own hand when He came within my reach, but He wanted me to hold Him. How God solved my blessed agony, who can understand? He turned my body into His." And that's you too,!
