Start anew each day with new intentions, new thoughts about yourself and new words of encouragement. Begin each day with a renewed sense of life as a wonderful journey never before taken, each step a new step into the unknown. Even though things may not appear different from one day to the next, you have the power to change how you think, how you act, and where you put your energy, your creativity, and your compassionate heart.
Life is like a river in which you choose your method of concourse. You can choose to float along, letting life take you willy and nilly. You can choose to anchor yourself in one spot. You can choose to swim with or against the current. Or you can even choose to get out of the water and walk beside it. Whatever you choose, give it all you’ve got, without complaint, and you will have accomplished what you set out to do, to traverse the great river of life.
Without judgment or blame assess the true state of yourself and decide what is needed today to take your journey one step forward. What change can you make immediately that will impact your day? A change of attitude? How you dress? How you speak and act toward others? One small change can make a big difference. Begin the day with deciding what will be different today, and then enact it. You have the power to change in both big and small ways. Begin today!
When the world is in chaos the individual has the power to stabilize, to hold steady and endure, no matter what transpires. One individual has the power to stabilize one life, and one life stabilized has the power to stabilize a second life, and so on. In this manner stability may turn chaos into order. Do not give up, but take control. Use your own energy, your own power, to stabilize your world, and in so doing effect the world around you. Each one of you is a force to be reckoned with. Use your power for the greater good.
Stabilize your mind with visions of beauty and bounty. Stabilize your heart with songs of love and compassion. Stabilize your body with mentions of peace and calmness. Stabilize your spirit with the breath of loving kindness so that all may be well, within and without. The power to stabilize lies within not without, the power to change for the better, to maintain stability and keep the mind clear, the heart steady, the body calm and the spirit focused. Let there be peace now, within and without, by your own power to stabilize. With loving intent, set a new course from this day forward.
