Creation Speak, Part 1

We now have a situation that I feel needs comment. For those of you who've been reading this blog and my other I feel that this post is particularly dedicated to your needs.

We have been exposed to, in our lives, many truisms that people say offhand and we might find ourselves saying them as well. We consider them sayings and of course some of them are absolutely true without a doubt when commented on a physical basis - "The sky is blue" and so on but many of them are simply cynical - meaning "Expect nothing and you won't get disappointed" for example. While that may soften some blows it's a blow in itself and it discourages people from improving their circumstances and also discourages people from attempting to improve the circumstances of others.

Now I know that you do not say these things but you might hear others saying them around you so I want to give you a little suggestion there. First off it's really important to try and catch yourself if you're saying things - usually without thinking as I said because of training or exposure to them - things that actually might be restricting your capacities, your abilities and even your opportunities.

I think most of you pay attention to these things but it's easy to forget sometimes isn't it. So here's the thing for starters. If you happen to accidentally or without thinking say one of these truisms that you realize right afterwards is not a good thing for you to say don't say something like, "Erase that" or "Pretend I didn't say that." That doesn't work.

You have to stop - turn it around into something that is more positive - more benevolent, alright? Such as for the previous comment I made about a truism of, "Expect nothing..." you would have to turn that around as quickly as possible. It doesn't work to wait 20 minutes or 30 minutes - not very well but if you can turn it around in - oh say just a minute or two after you say it or less, that will work.

So you might say something like, "Be open to possibilities, opportunities might be abounding" or "Be optimistic, life can get better." Like that - that one especially would be good to say.

I'm mentioning these things to you not so much because I feel you don't know them but because it's an important reminder. These days we have much more opportunity to create. Creationism itself is there for us and it's there all the time no matter whether we want it or not - it's right there - so we have to be conscious of what we're saying.

That's what I recommend. Goodlife.
