The Tree Outside My Window

I was inspired to write this a while ago – maybe almost a year and I figured since I’ve recently moved, that I better do it now or forget it. So here we go, hope you like it.

The Tree Outside My Window…

There’s been a tree outside my window that pretty much looks like millions of other trees of its kind on the planet. At first glance, it’s quite ordinary. Just a tree.

One day I was staring at it for a while and that’s when it hit me!

Starting at the base and working my way up, I could see how the tree would grow in a specific direction that would place it out of balance, and if it kept growing this way it could eventually fall over and die…but the tree, you see, self-corrected as it grew, always keeping in balance by stretching back towards the light of the sun…

I had this realization that helped me…I hope it may help you or someone you love.

I related to how when I find myself out of balance from time to time that there’s really only one solution “Leave It To God” and be just like the tree; you just have to trust everything will work out.

Even when we feel like we are out-of-balance or on the wrong path, if we stay focused on the light, on love, on all the good the world has to offer, like the tree you will self-correct as you grow…

How To Think About YOU!

When you think of yourself do not think of that part of yourself that appears on the surface. That part is the smaller part and the lesser should not be pictured in mind. Think of your larger self, the immense subconscious self that is limitless both in power and possibility.

Believe in yourself but not simply in a part of yourself. Give constant recognition to all that is in you and in that all have full faith and confidence.

Give the bigger man on the inside full right of way. Believe thoroughly in your greater interior self. Know that you have something within you that is greater than any obstacle, circumstance or difficulty that you can possibly meet. Then in full faith in this greater something proceed with your work.

–Christian D. Larsen, Your Forces and How To Use Them, 1910

The Meaning – Jim Carrey

The Meaning by Jim Carrey.

I found this beautiful and inspiring. Jim Carrey is not only an amazing talent but an example of what is possible for each of us. You’re gig might not be movies or comedy but within there is something so unique that you are the only one of it in the entire world.

In this short video he share’s his journey, and lays it out not for bragging rights or ego but show what is possible when you find the right meaning.

Did you know at one point he wrote himself a check for $10 million dollars for “acting services rendered” and he dated it 5 years in the future and then three years later got paid $10 million dollars for the movie “Dumb and Dumber” (Not my favorite movie but still funny).
