D Digest: Prosperity, Pain & Conscious Optimism. Another month o’ blinding radiance on my site. The July Roundup is here.
When you get through the big pain, this is what happens: Near-blinding radiance.
You will have more to give—and you will LOVE giving it. You will seek to give. It will be the most incredible feeling. Someone is going to come to you with a broken wing, or low on reserves and you are going to have so much love and insight to offer them.
Get your halo dirty. #Truthbomb elaborations
Sometimes, some trash talk goes grrrreat with yoga. Lighten up. Live.
Be Your Own Guru. #Truthbomb elaborations
Final say? YOU. All you. No matter what. Your body knows. Your heart knows. Your mind will help you act on what you know.
Conscious optimism vs. lazy, pseudo-spiritual optimism. Please make a choice.
I posted a #truthbomb a while back: "If you’re not a feminist, you’re missing the point." That got a lot of Yesses! and Yeahs! And then this kind of stuff: “Wouldn't it be better if we were all humanists?” ... “How about all being spiritualists?” … “We’re all in this together.”
Don't take any shit. #truthbomb elaborations
...and by that I mean: Your week is filled with a few opportunities to put up and shut up. And where does that get you? Repressed, suppressed, officially oppressed. Not taking any shit doesn’t mean you’ve got to fight or get scrappy — though sometimes, that’s exactly what you need to do — loudly.
You’re on the verge of a miracle. #Truthbomb elaborations
A Course In Miracles defines a miracle as “a shift in perception.” I love that, because that definition covers a lot of bases. You can choose to believe in spontaneous healing and create a physiological miracle.
Adjusting to your prosperity. (And how I stopped my habit of “getting by”.)
I’m at my first meeting with my Financial Planner: “So, I looked at your numbers,” she eased in. I felt like I was waiting for a diagnosis. “I think you’re working for your business instead of your business working for you.” Hunh?!
When you’re done fighting for it. The upside of finally giving up.
Do you know the story of the man who was hitting himself over the head with a hammer? “Why do you keep hitting yourself with that hammer?” a shocked passerby asked him. “Because,” the man replied, “it’s going to feel so good when I stop.”
Procrastination can be a form of intuition. #Truthbomb elaborations
...and by that I mean: Even type-A personalities and wildly productive grown-ups put things off. But what we might critique as procrastination can be a misdiagnosis for instinct.
