When we were children we had such great dreams for ourselves. We believed and knew that anything was possible. As adults, we sometimes see those around us who are unhappy with their lives. They experience one failed dream after another until they stop believing that they can ever have any of their wishes and many fall into a feeling of despair. Then we see people who continue to create many wonderful things in their lives—whose lives seem to be an upward spiral of even more joy, happiness and abundance, where dreams do come true.
I often wonder how we would feel if we took a picture of ourselves as adults and showed this picture to ourselves as children. Would we feel happy about how we turned out? Would we feel pleased with how we look, where we live, who we are living with, what we grew up to be? Or would we run from the room trembling? If we are unhappy with certain aspects of our lives, then perhaps we could begin today to work on changing the parts that are not all that we know they could be.
Neale Donald Walsch, author of books such as Conversations with God and New Revelations, recently wrote in his weekly bulletin that “Change is part of life…Change Is Life. Life IS Change.” He further points out that when a thing moves that it is changing. Since everything in life moves all of the time, then everything is naturally changing.
Neale Donald Walsch notes that once he began to embrace change and to see it as an opportunity rather than a burden, then he could work on creating how the changes would occur rather than simply reacting to them. In his Conversations with God books he points out that there are three Tools of Creation. “Thought is the first tool. What we think, we begin to create. Word is the second tool. What we say, we begin to create. Action is the third tool. What we do, we begin to create.” By using all three tools together, we all have a very powerful way to create change.
There are many wonderful people available to assist us on our path. It is our great joy to introduce you to so many who are available to help you create the changes you are wishing to experience. We hope you will be able to attend our next Wellness Expo on October 21-22, where you will be able to experience many of their offerings. I believe that if we keep on looking for solutions, then we will find the ones that are right for us. May we all begin today to work on creating a picture of ourselves that lives up to the dreams we had when we were young.
