Some Inspirational Sayings

There are many inspirational sayings that can be found in a great book called A Course in Miracles.   The first of these can be found in the introduction of the book which says; “The opposite of love is fear, but what is all encompassing can have no opposite.  This course can therefore be summed up very simply in this way: Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists.”  What this book basically teaches is that fear is just an illusion.  We all think that it is extremely rational to fear certain things and to avoid those things that we are afraid of.  What we don’t realize is that fear is just a cloud that prevents us from experiencing true happiness in our lives.

The lessons in this book can be approached almost like a personal challenge.  What soon becomes apparent is that the lessons begin to uncover a lot of hidden fears inside of us that we didn’t even know we had.  At first you are asked to simply look around the room at the basic objects in the room and repeat a simple phrase to yourself; “Nothing I see in this room means anything.” The lesson uses a form of reverse psychology on you in that you begin to see how you project many hidden meanings onto the objects in your life.  As you repeat this phrase to yourself, you begin to see how you actually do hold certain meanings inside your mind for reach of the objects in your room.  Many of these meanings that are being projected onto our lives are fearful ideas that we subconsciously carry around with us and aren’t even aware of.  Practicing these lessons seems to miraculously bring these hidden projections to the surface of our minds and to allow them to be exposed in the light of day.

A Course in Miracles really can be a surprise for a lot of people who might, upon first glance, think it to be a very odd book which is only meant as some kind of “trick” to its readers.  Actually, it is just a book which is exactly what it claims to be; a course in miracles.

Once you begin to progress through these inspirational saying in the book, you will find that the first twenty lessons are actually the most important lessons in the book.  They provide an initial foundational work that must take place inside of you before the rest of the lessons can really have an effect.  Lesson number 6 reads “I am upset because I see something that isn’t there” and lesson 8 says “My mind is preoccupied with past thoughts”.  These early lessons help to uncover the hidden projections of your mind so that the later lessons can actually become even more inspirational and can have a greater effect on your life.

Eventually, as you progress through this book, lessons like “I can escape from the world I see by giving up attack thoughts” become more meaningful based on the earlier readings. There is also a very long text that goes with this book which can help to explain the lessons and make them more effective. All in all, this is just a great book if you really want to inspire your life to become more than it was.   Everybody has a different life so the course works on everyone differently.  The only thing required is seriousness and a discipline to stick with it through the entire year of lessons that are outlined.  Some people don’t take it so seriously the first year and decide to start over and try it again a second time. It really doesn’t matter how long you decide to take, if you eventually get serious about it, it will definitely have profound effects on you and change your life around for the better.

It is sometimes very scary in the beginning to try new things.  In fact, making a commitment to change ourselves can initially bring up some of our worst fears that we have held deep inside for so long.  The book is bringing up more of your subconscious fears for conscious examination and making it possible for you to dispense with them once and for all.

An Inspirational Message

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said; “The sun shines and warms and lights us and we have no curiosity to know why this is so; but we ask the reason of all evil, pain, hunger, mosquitoes and silly people.”  Have you ever taken the time to wake up early in the morning and go to the best spot where you can watch the sun rise over the horizon?  It is truly an amazing moment to experience all by yourself.

When the morning is just about to break, the sky is always very dark.  You can look all over the sky and see nothing but moonlight and stars, wondering to yourself, where the sun will actually come up when it rises over the horizon.  You might take a guess but, as long as it is still very early in the morning, you will really have no idea of the exact spot.  As you sit quietly and wait, you will notice one part of the sky begin to slowly brighten.  You won’t be sure if this is the sun or not at first.  Then it will become apparent that this is the sun slowly lighting up the horizon at the place where it is eventually going to rise.  This is a great discovery in itself but only the beginning of the amazing things you are about to see.

It actually takes quite a long time for the sun to come up over the horizon.  From the moment when you first see the sky begin to light up, until the time when you first see the initial rays of the burning sun, can seem like over an hour.  Patience, however, is well rewarded and you can even take notice as the time passes that the sky will slowly change colors before your eyes.  Sometimes the changes that take place in the morning sky are so slow that you can’t really notice them unless you are watching very carefully.  If you had a camera, you could take a snapshot every two or three minutes and you would see the difference registered on the film.  The color of the sky is changing at each moment and it is all due to the rolling of the Earth as your early morning spot turns closer toward the sun.

As you are waiting for the sun to appear, you can think about all the people all over the planet.  Some of them are still sleeping but others have awoken hours ago in other parts of the world.  The sun is already beaming down on them in all its glory and they are hustling and bustling about trying to get their workday completed.  For you, it is still just a quiet early morning and there is nothing to see or hear but the birds and the plants waiting for the sun to arise over the horizon.  Then the sky becomes even brighter and you will begin to wonder if the big moment is about to approach.  You can watch the horizon very closely and it will become more and more obvious where the sun is actually going to appear.

As the final moment of sunrise approaches, it is as though all the scenery around you is awaiting this one glorious event.  Everything that is alive on the planet depends upon the warmth of the sun and this giant ball of intense fire is about to make its magnificent presence known.  The horizon will bubble with anticipation as the heat of the rays will actually show itself to be approaching and then, suddenly, as if from something unimaginable, the fire of the sun will be seen directly flaming in front of your eyes and piercing the entire morning sky.  It is appears like a ferociously alive burst of energy that is above and beyond anything you can truly understand.   It appears like the king of the world, lighting the way with a miraculous power that is purposefully alive at every moment yet stands completely outside of time because of its seemingly eternal existence.  This same sun has been appearing over the horizon for hundreds of thousands of years and the morning that you watch it seems like a dwarf in comparison to the number of mornings that it must have already made its presence known.  The sun seems to stand outside of time itself as if it rules over both time and space and simply cannot be comprehended by our small and seemingly insignificant existence.  All of this, you can see on one morning when you wake up early and watch the sun come up over the horizon.  Indeed, hunger, mosquitoes and silly people are a small price to pay for such an amazing opportunity.

Inspirational Words

Psychologists believe that our capacity as human beings depends on what our minds truly believe to be possible.  “It’s all in the mind”, as they say. In order to show how simple this idea is, a concrete example may serve to illustrate it. Two students, without their knowledge, were subjected to an experiment.  Both were of the same grade level, age, and nationality.  They were instructed to take a long jump activity as part of a physical education class.  Girl 2 was shorter than girl 1.  It was expected that the shorter girl would initially feel hopeless because of the obvious size advantage of the other girl so, without receiving any motivation inspiring words from her coach, trial 1 was allowed to begin. As was expected from trail 1, the shorter girl lost by a distance of around 5 inches.
Trial 2 followed immediately after trial 1. With some proper coaching and motivational words this time, the shorter girl won by 1.5 inches!  How did this happen?  It happened because the power of belief and attitude. What happened exactly was that an explanation about the height advantage of the girl was re-contextualized for the shorter girl.  She was told that she actually had an even advantage with the taller girl because of her lighter weight.  When she saw the taller girl as being “heavier” than her, it was enough motivation to inspire the shorter girl to focus on her own strengths and to use them to win.  It’s all in the way you look at it.

Inspirational words can totally change the direction of our lives.  We often see life as a scary place with dangers around every corner. We may not even recognize the fact that many of our fears are hidden inside us and controlling us at every turn.   Others, on the other hand, may see life as a series of opportunities to challenge themselves because they have overcome these hidden fears and opened themselves up to a world of extra energy that was also hidden inside them but covered and stifled by the fears that surrounded it. It doesn’t take a major change in many cases to alter the direction of your ship.  One small turn on the wheel can eventually result in a completely different section of the globe that you will sail to! As soon as you change one of your coordinates, the direction of your entire life will also change. You will begin to see everything around you as reflecting of this new change and it will provide you with even more inspiration to try even greater things.

Inspirational words can really be found everywhere. It’s just a matter of being able to see them.  From our homes, our schools to our workplace, there are opportunities to find inspirational words.  From the movies we watch, the books we read, the music we listen to and the people we talk to every single day of our lives, we can be inspired to do great things.  These are words, which may just be simple words, can hit the deepest part of our souls and awaken us to be reminded of the true essence of who we are. From there we will find ourselves capable of living our lives more peacefully and more harmoniously with others.

Next time you think about where you want to find some inspirational words, just look inside yourself and ask yourself what’s stopping you from picking up one of the thousands of books out there that teach the most simple truths of all.  What’s holding you back from making a commitment to read just five or ten pages a day to improve your life?  The inspiration is deep inside yourself and the words that you are looking for outside are only a means to help you find that place inside that you already had to begin with.  The greatest inspirational words there are those that will come right out of your own heart and mind.  They will be the ones that bring you to make a change and to reach for the stars.

Inspirational Thought Comes From Within

Those who are gifted with the power of inspirational thought get it from within themselves but it doesn’t happen by accident.  There is a method and a means to achieving this energy that can be had by anyone, no matter who you are.  The power of inspirational thought comes from inside of each person no matter what their age, race, gender or personality type.  All that is required is a determination to sit still and look deep inside yourself.

When most people decide to sit still and close their eyes, they see a series of thoughts and emotions flashing past their minds eye that seems virtually uncontrollable.  Various ideas and thoughts may pop into your head which have absolutely no meaning and yet, you cannot stop the mind from running endlessly.  As you continue to sit still and watch your thoughts and emotions, you will tend to lose track of what you are doing and get lost in your thoughts and feelings.  If you manage to pay attention and watch yourself for a short period of time, you will see that you have very little control over what goes through your mind and when.  Very few people can stand to sit still for very long and practice this.  They tend to get bored or anxious or uncomfortable and they quickly open their eyes and go find something else to do.  Why can’t we sit still?  What is bothering us so much that we always have to be moving around doing something each moment?  DO we need more money?  Do we need to talk to someone?  Are we lonely or needing some form of entertainment every moment to keep ourselves happy?  Very few people can actually stand to sit still with themselves and be contented.  In fact, this power is something that many spiritual students strive for each day and is the source of everything that is inspirational in the world.

Inspiration to do great things comes from within but few people are actually capable of looking within themselves for any significant amount of time.  Their attention is always thrown by one thought or another and they are back to doing the same old things that they have always done their entire life.  If you are able to discipline yourself, however, to learn to sit still and to watch your thoughts and emotions as they pass by your minds eye, you will eventually become familiar with something very powerful deep within yourself.  The energy of observation is a consciousness that exists inside of you and is actually the source of all your happiness and sadness, your joy and your anger, your fears and desires. It is the underlying source of everything you have ever experienced and it is an infinite energy which creates all the inspirational thoughts of the world.

As you devote yourself to practicing this new game, try to notice all the times when you feel like getting up and stopping this practice.   Watch how your mind kicks and fights to gain control of you and to stop you from learning to be content with who you already are.  Your ego doesn’t want you to sit still and it will throw up every fear and rationalization it can invent just to get you out of your chair and back out into the rat race that you call “life”.  The real inspirational thoughts are the ones that come from deep inside your soul and can only be found through a lot of “soul searching”.  Search inside yourself each day for a certain amount of time and don’t let your mind shake you from this task no matter what it may tell you is more important than this.  Searching your soul is the most important thing you could ever decide to do but also the most challenging as well.  Devote yourself to win at this game and you will soon discover an inspirational energy inside of you that you never knew existed.  You will become one of the people who can deliver the inspirational thoughts that you have always hoped to find in other people.
