It is an Energy Thing

Written by

Often we hear about attitude and that ultimately, the only thing we can control is our attitude.  Attitude relates directly to how we see the world and sometimes, what we are faced with on a daily basis.  It is the proverbial question, are you a glass half full or a glass half empty person; are you an optimist or a pessimist?

This attitude we have is energy!  And this energy we carry with us and project outward directly affects the people around us, even attracting more of the same into our lives.  While this sounds like common sense, the nuances can take on surprising effects as I have noticed in my own life over the past month.

Within the past month I achieved a goal I set for myself well over a year ago.  In achieving this goal, I was mindful that I was already okay, I was already loved by God and didn’t need the achieving of the goal to feel better about myself.  In achieving this goal, I wasn’t prideful or boastful, I just was quietly feeling satisfied as I turned my attention toward new goals; still I noticed that some people that I didn’t know were smiling at me for no apparent reason.

The sequel to Quinton’s Messages is in editing; it is titled Quinton’s Legacy. In this project I had the goal of going a little bit deeper than just sharing what we experienced and sharing more of my philosophies about life.  In the last chapter I sought to deal head on the depths of adversity that human kind face while sharing my philosophy that ultimately we are better for it.  In the writing of this chapter, I and my editor noticed that in citing more examples of historical adversity, the more negative the entire chapter felt even though I built to a positive view.  Then I rewrote the chapter and changed the title. I made the same philosophical point while not dwelling on our struggles throughout history; I instead briefly touched upon a couple of examples.  The entire energy of the chapter changed, and fits better with the entire new book and the example of how we should be living our lives that Quinton provides us with.

This past week I momentarily increased my indulgence in Facebook after finding myself exposed a very dark emotion from another that I can only be described as hate.  Don’t worry friends, it was not directed to me.  As opposed to engaging it directly I chose to post a message about love, from different world faiths on three consecutive days.  An interesting thing happened.  Not only was I better for it, but I had an amazingly positive week with numerous positive leads toward achieving my next goal.

This is not coincidence.  This is directly the result of energy that is projected and energy that is chosen!

Blessings!
