CONCEPT OF being positive is often mistaken for the concept of being
beneficial. This is not the case. Positive can be harmonious or
inharmonious. The beneficial concept can best be described as
selfawareness who and what I am that which blesses and enhances my
Selfawareness is under- standing what
makes me me. It is what makes me feel good about myself. A relative
term to be sure, but it points the way to my expression as ABSOLUTE.
Selfawareness is what I find when I am
nonjudgmental, nonpossessive and untouched, as I am myself and delight
in my reality.
When I am selfaware, I am in control of
my life and affairs. I am master of my every thought, word or action.
At all times I am on top of every circumstance regardless whether it
began with me or apparently with another. Often, I conclude that
things take place in my life because of what others think or do. When
I am selfaware, I know that every thought I think bears fruit. When I
acknowledge that others are the force behind my experiences, I say I
am not in charge, I am not selfaware, I am not the only force that
matters. To do this means I empower others and their imagination,
which I initiate, to cause activities in my world. I acknowledge that
this is exactly what I want in my life. I say: I enjoy it, I empower
it, I want it.
No one knows who and what I am as well
as I do. Many times my parents like to feel that they know me better
than I do myself, but no one can ever truly know me, my inner man.
When my parents see me this way and I accept it, I am but another
parent. It is not that I do not appreciate the wisdom of my parents,
it is more that what they have trained me to do and be I apply to my
life. As I mature, if they do not expect me to apply what they have
taught me and feel they know better than I do how I should respond to
life, then indeed I am but another parent to myself.
My coming into my selfawareness
indicates how well I like the world in which I live. My coming into my
selfawareness indicates how well I am master of my every thought, word
and action. My coming into my selfawareness indicates how well I
recognize who and what I am, that I am the only power in the universe
This is not vain selfglory; rather it is
recognition of the truth of my being.
