THE OBSERVER EFFECT, CHILDHOOD DREAMS AND THE POWER OF RE-IMAGINATION, Part II

As I said in the previous post, Jesus taught that one could only enter the Kingdom of God with the eyes/perspective/paradigm of a child...the Kingdom of God does not exist in the future, because there is no future or past in the eternal "now", and that seems to be a concept that children are able to grasp more easily than time-obsessed, time-conscious adults...God reveals Himself as "I AM"...His presence is always "the NOW"...

It takes some effort to keep your thoughts, your focus, and your attention on what is happening in the immediate, but the more you live in the moment and are "present" in your attitude, the easier it becomes...

It's important to be aware of your surroundings if you want to live in the childlike present and communicate with the 'I AM'...one of the best ways to do that is through gratitude...not only does gratitude attract more things into your life for which to be grateful, it makes you more aware of what you already have, and that awareness makes it easier for you to enjoy all that has already manifested in your personal world... living in the moment is a HUGE aspect of Abundant Life...

Refuse to allow yourself to be distracted by any obsession with the past...every day is a day to clean house and to erase any of the tapes that play in your head which are counterproductive to living your best life...you may have to constantly delete mental files, and if so, so be it!

You must break ties with that which is negative and contrary to a now mentality...remember what needs to be remembered, and forget what needs to be forgotten...remember how good God has been to you, and hold the vibration of pleasant memories close to your heart...it's important, also, to remember the lessons that you've learned from past mistakes, but don't let your memory bind or hold you in a negative space...children have a wonderful way of forgetting what needs to be forgotten with little effort, so tap into that inner-child power that you already have, and make it work for you...

It's equally important to not allow yourself to be preoccupied with the future...send out your intentions to the Universe...make necessary plans...speak energetic, prophetic words over your life...call those things which are not as though they were...study....prepare...get stronger by looking forward to good things that are coming up...but never let worry and anxiety about the future distract you, not even for a second...the NOW is too wonderful to miss, even for the future!

Never let your own mind become your enemy..thinking "now" will open new doors in your thought-life, and enable you to discover new possibilities, new potential, and new wisdom...make that Quantum Jump into the reality of the "you" that never gave up on your childhood dreams...he/she is out there somewhere, and you can find him/her if you really want to!

When you begin to think differently, you begin to speak differently...everything you say does something...everything you do says something...let the changes come and don't fight your own evolution...you will soon notice that you are surprising the people in your life, and will even begin to surprise yourself by your new way of reacting to the world around you...

Listen to God's voice...that voice that speaks inside you...and discern what He is saying...pay attention to the Universe...

Childhood dreams can still come true...

Be everything you started out to be before your thinking got hijacked...

It's never too late!

    Had an evening like this tonight with my teenage son and his friend...eating ice cream and laughing like crazy and being completely ridiculous. Thank goodness for teenagers at their best, they help us remember what it was like to live in the moment and be so silly and joyous that you laugh until you cry...!
