There are days when I just don’t have the desire or the energy to face the day.  In these times of depression and loneliness, I know that it is only going to be me that can change the mood and turn my life around.  I can allow the darkness to consume me or I can use it to contrast the things in my life I am grateful for.  It is only in the light of my spirit where the truth can be found.  I am not my body.  My body is merely a vehicle.  I am not my mind.  My mind is merely a tool to understand the separation of my spirit from the others and its own source.  When I look at my life from this point of view, then I am brought back to a truth that is not visible to so many people…and sometimes even myself.  We are all one.

Power of the Spirit

Looking back, I can remember times when I was lost.  My life had no meaning and I was just an empty shell.  It seemed like every day was another burden rather than another chance to find happiness.  It wasn’t until I got to know my inner being, the real me.  This process didn’t happen in a day and it took a lot of searching and work.  And even though it took great effort and time, the result was a hidden power I never knew existed.  I will never forget the day I discovered the strength of my own spirit.  For those who are still searching for something, look no further.  You are that great power.  It is a part of each and every one of us.  Your spirit has always been with you, and when it leaves your body the flesh begins to rot.  Body is only living matter when the energy known as “spirit” is with it.  The source of spirit energy is the magical key to all life.  Some people call this “God.”  You can call it whatever you are comfortable with, but its all the same.  The source of all energy on this planet and the entire universe is the same and it governs everything in existence through a set of universal laws.

Universal Laws of Nature

If you are wondering what the laws of nature are, think about gravity or physics.  How is it that a cruise ship the size of a city can float, but if you were to throw a rock into a pond, that small rock would sink to the bottom?  What allows a jumbo jet weighing nearly one million pounds to fly through the air?  These vehicles had to be engineered to work in harmony with the laws of nature in order for aviation and maritime to become possible.  Familiarize yourself with these laws, put them into use, and you will find a power you never knew you had.

Applied Knowledge is Power

Don’t be fooled…knowledge isn’t power.  Knowledge has it’s limitations by your system of beliefs.  This thing called “ego” can blind you.  It has successfully done just that to so many others, even those aware of its existence and cunning ways.  Ego has been limiting your power of knowledge by only granting limited access.  When we allow ego to shut the doors to our minds, we have already been unaware of the construction of the walls.  We become prisoners to the ego, and our access to knowledge becomes limited to what we think “we know.”  Knowledge only becomes power when our understanding of it grows in depth and we apply it.  It is also important to be willing to let go of our understanding of what we are holding on to currently for a better understanding.  This will bring down the walls of our mind and free us in the most powerful way.  We will no longer be trapped to our own way of thinking and we will have the freedom to change our mind.  Changing our way of thinking is the power of knowledge, it is a shame not too many people know how use this power.

Feel the Power

When the walls come down around the mind, the spirit is awakened.  An awakened spirit is quick to explore itself in human form.  To the spirit, every day is an adventure.  It seeks to explore things that bring back pleasant feelings, and it will respond back with feelings of joy, contentment, and happiness when it is satisfied.  On the contrary, it will respond back with feelings of guilt, shame and remorse when it is less than satisfied.  Listen to your feelings.  It is the language of the spirit.  The power to change your life is within us all.  Those who choose to ignore or deny their spirit live without







Your Thoughts Have Power

“If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought.”
― Peace Pilgrim

This much is true… your thoughts carry more power than you will ever comprehend.  Thoughts are the first step of creation.  Your thoughts are like seeds that your mind sends out into the universe through vibrations.  As you focus more on the same thought over and over again, a shift towards that thought begins and it can manifest into your physical reality.  It is important to think wisely because everything you are experiencing now is a result of your thoughts in the past.  Negative energy attracts negative energy, as positive energy attracts positive energy.  So if you think you are a loser, you become that.  If you think you are successful (or at least heading in the right direction to be successful) you become that.

Change your Thoughts and You Will Change Your Life

The mind is a powerful super computer and you are the programmer.  It is important to know a few things about the mind.  Like a computer you purchase, it comes with some useless software that was installed on it from the factory.  If you want to erase the stuff that has no value to you, there is nothing stopping you from doing that.  As a matter of fact…that is an excellent idea!  Most of us don’t realize that every behavior pattern we display, everything from our system of values and morals to our religious beliefs were pre-programmed into our minds before we reached our sixth birthday.  We just keep going through life with all that data running in the subconscious part of our mind…which by the way is where most of our life changing decisions are made.

Using the Power of Thoughts

Some say that you can’t control your thoughts.  I will admit it is not easy, but with practice it can be done.  Everything in life requires practice to become easy.  Look at some of the guitar gods that make playing that instrument look effortless.  To them it is easy, but unless you have invested the time to learn how to play on their level you will never see what they can do as anything less than amazing.  I have invested tens of thousands of hours in my years of playing the guitar and I see what they do as not-so-easy.

The trick to controlling your thoughts is to change them.  When you feel a negative thought in your mind, change it to a positive one.  Think of something funny…like a fart, then laugh.  Laughter is the best medicine for your mind.  If you can laugh at the things that normally make you angry, you will change your life.  As a professional musician, I learned early to perfect my mistakes.  If I make one on a stage, keep playing and pretend I just farted in a crowded elevator.  If you make one…SO WHAT.  Own it, but keep playing.
