Remember when you'er tested by life that it's really your relationship to the Force that's being tested.

Your focus determines your reality. So don't focus on the problem, focus on the solution, that the solution can grow.

The greatest Jedi's maintain their center when tested by life. They maintain their point of focus through the Force on the solution. They don't get lost in the details which are in a constant state of change. They focus on what they can do. Most of all a Jedi must have patience. Things don't always happen when we want them to or the way would like but that's part of the lesson of life. The winner of the race is not always the fastest but the one who is willing to stick with it and let go, and let things work themselves out that are beyond our control.

So if your thinking of giving up, don't. Hang in there. Remember this is part of a lesson which was ment for you to learn. Where does your strength flow? What determines your reality? What is your point of focus?


And as Mother Teresa said
You see, in the final analysis,
it is between you and the Living Force;
It was never between you and them anyway.

OK, I added the Living Force part.

May the Force be with you...



DO IT ANYWAY

People are often unreasonable,
illogical and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind,
people may accuse you of selfish ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful,
you will win some false friends and true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank,
people may cheat you;
Be honest anyway.

What you spend years building,
someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness,
they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today,
people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have,
and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you've got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis,
it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

Mother Teresa

For me to be centered in the Force is like watching an inspirational video except the video comes from inside yourself. No teacher, religion, place, or person can be the source of your own inspirational video. They can only point the way. The source must come from within. To find that source and be able to listen to it at will is to accomplish great things.

I think we all struggle finding motivation it easy to loose heart when others around are not supportive of our efforts.. what are some ways to find that spark within ourselves?

Inspiration, inner peace, or inner joy should not be concerned about what others think of you. It is it's own Sun. It shines because it is. It is a force unto itself which will carry you when you feel you can't go on, and give you light when all you can see is darkness.

Like anything else it gets better with practice. Meditation is one of the best forms of practice.

Another form of practice is repetition. If I were to give an assignment it would be to watch a least one inspirational video on youtube or where-ever first thing in the morning and at least once a day. see how this simple act changes your life. Your mind might fight it at first but in time it will believe. Thoughts create things.

As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.





Our Deepest Fear
by Marianne Williamson
from A Return To Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
