What Are You Encouraging?



“Weeds don’t need any encouragement to grow. Much like our negative and repetitive thoughts they have a force and will of their own. This seems to be a function of our minds left over from the days of old when life was a lot more dangerous and difficult. Advertisers, news media outlets and propagandists seem to know this quite well and aim to play on our unfounded fears. These fears are nebulous and detached from any real threat, and because they are unfounded in reality, any slight mention of negativity will give these fears something to attach to and help justify themselves, though unnecessary. But, in the modern times we need not focus on the negative things so intensely seeing as the world has improved immensely, though not perfect. Let us give more attention to the positive and productive use of our miraculous and powerful minds. Only by doing so can we ever realize a reality in which we pay more attention to what is going right, rather than what is going wrong. When you focus on what you don’t want. you tend to get more of that and vice-versa. Our thoughts tend to become self-fulfilling prophecies. Let them fulfill something desirable”

-R.B. Royal

Eternal Enthusiasm



“Don’t walk around with a sense of self defeat and unending doubt. Cut the ties to these parasitic powers. The world, whether we like it or not, will already do that for us. It will automatically write us off, and ask us to prove the necessity of our existence and why we deserve attention and respect. Why then, should we write ourselves off automatically, forfeiting before we have begun? Write in your name first on the internal list of eternal enthusiasm.”

-E.R. Hughes

Self Actualization



 

“There comes a time in every mans education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance and imitation is suicide and that he must take himself for better or for worse as his portion.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

The Still Small Voice



 

“There is something in every one of you that waits and listens for the sound of the genuine in yourself. It is the only true guide you will ever have. And if you cannot hear it, you will all of your life spend your days on the ends of strings that somebody else pulls.”

Howard Thurman
