WEEKLY NEWSLETTER FOR March 5, 2018
Theme for the month of March is:
A BREATH OF FRESH AIR
There is a saying, attributed to Thomas Jefferson, that goes, “If you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done before.” Yet how many of us take it to heart when we’re about to take a step toward that “something new”. Another thought-worthy quote, this one by John Wooden, “Never mistake activity for achievement.” These two quotes tidy up mistakes that sometimes even smart people make—that is, mistaking Motion for Action.
When preparing for say a trip, or deciding to get in shape, or achieve a new goal, first we might start to collect information covering the usual what, where, when’s, etc, as well as an estimate as to how much money it’s all going to cost. All necessary information. Yet collecting information is a whole lot different from actually experiencing the thing. It’s a matter of Motion vs. Action.
Motion is when you’re busy gathering information. But gathering alone doesn’t produce the trick. Motion prepares us; Action gives us the result.
When I was learning to paint in watercolor, I was a steady bookstore customer. I very likely had as large a shelf space devoted to “how to” watercolor books as the local Barnes & Noble. Until one day, I came to the realization. I had a mountain of information, but there was a valley of action/practice to do before I could experience the result I desired.
If you want to learn to be a true master of living the life you want to have, be the authentic person you were born to be, or learn ways in which you can help create a world that works for everyone, here’s a mighty first step. Motion: Order this book today from our bookstore, Living the Science of Mind, by Ernest Holmes. Action: Read it. The lessons are easy and concise. Take them to heart. See what Spirit has in store for you.
Everything I have planned is working out for my highest good. With Spirit in charge, All is well.
