One of my friends died from cancer yest. She will be in a better place now. It was sad to see how she dwindled from life.
I was part of an online membership and on it I was led to a resource that has had a profound effect on my life. I might say that having become a member of this program was the very entity that has brought about this change…
There is a difference between that which is truth and that which is the illusion of truth.
I am beset by many problems mostly due to economic hardship.
At one time – not quite so long ago I saw life as a constant downgrading process and it caused much of the negativity you and others have known me for…
What was in that book I read – just a few statements in it in one place has made me see life in a completely different light.
One of the mediators had me read the book and comment on it. I hit it squarely on the head and it amazed him that I found the very message he wanted me to get out of the entire book in the first reading and posted my comments about it (he wanted me to read it over several times to get the message.)
I have always been told what to do…but never how to do it with regard to living life.
So I continued on as I was going with a void between me and that other way.
I’ve always complained – it was the only way I knew to cry out for help. It continued right on into the blog posts of Steve Little’s “The PerfectBizBuilder” program until one of the mediators, Mike Stone challenged me to read the book, “Science of Getting Rich.” In it was that message for me.
This program teaches people how to determine which business would be the best one for them to pursue…that perfect fit. I was bringing my personal difficulties into the forum area and Steve Little added a discussion board for “anything else.” I promptly brought my issues from the lessons discussions to this new discussion board and it was here where I really found the missing pieces of my life!
Ironically (and sadly) I had to discontinue my membership there (because it is a recurring charge subscription) due to financial hardship. Every penny I paid into it was absolutely worth what I got out of it! I never even finished the course but I can do so any time on my own.
I have been very busy working on that which I have found to be my purpose. I have not pursued this because of the limiting core beliefs I had developed from when I was very young. The voice was always there but I listened to other people’s advice and admonitions on how my life should be lived.
I have a lot of catching up to do!
Over the last couple years I have come to realize that life is not just a “happening” thing. There’s purpose to it and there is a Master Mind behind it. Even though we are given free choice, as it was said to me, Have you considered that your circumstances are pushing you in a new direction for your greater good? Have faith, believe in yourself and listen.
The posts went on until the mediator brought the book to my attention.
The above statement brought on a whole new meaning of life to me.
Doors slam shut in our faces…and other doors open. Sometimes we don’t notice them even though slamming doors are very apparent to us to the point where they startle us. The greater good is behind these quietly opening doors, even if one of them is the Door of Death.
I went to the forum to get the above quote so I could present it to you as Mike Stone wrote it. I was surprised to find I could still log in after I canceled my membership weeks ago. Several times when in the membership I was said to have been an asset to the community there and provided value for the other members.
I have the unexpected opportunity to put this letter on that forum because it does express my appreciation for Steve Little’s program. It also has a lesson in it. I will also post this on my own website for July. I will return to the Forum as a paying member as soon as I regain my ability to support doing so.
Why I wrote this?
You said it yourself…”She will be in a better place now.” but that she “dwindled from life” may have actually been that climb upwards to that place.
