A great life is a life drenched in reflection. Reflection finds flaws and strengths and allows us to make logical, conscious changes in order to be of maximum service to God and all of humankind. Great decisions are necessary in achieving our ultimate potential and to improve on our decision making skills we must stay reflective. Reflection according to Dictionary.com is a fixing of the thoughts on something; careful consideration. Merely looking at ourselves and doing so with contemplative reflection is the difference between eating a meal and enjoying a feast. If I merely take an inventory of my life, the information at first glance may be deceptive, while honest reflection separates the wheat from the chaff.
Before my life was transformed, I made the same mistakes over and over again, banking on my luck changing. I am not sure how I expected things to change as I never made any changes. Now I live in constant reflection, opening my mind to new information. Much of the information I was brought up to believe as facts, has been proven to be false. Physics, nutrition, social values, morality and even politics have changed dramatically. If I didn’t reflect on my behavior, driven by my beliefs, molded by what I believed to be facts, I would not change my behavior. As a metaphysical psychologist, most of my time is utilized in helping people realize their faulty thinking and changing their thoughts and actions.
Live, reflect, change, repeat. This seems to be the way I live my life. With sixty jobs and seven careers, a failed marriage, years of substance abuse and treating people with a lack of respect I have had a lot of reflecting to do. This reflection has served me well. So well that I never subside in my practice of questioning most of my behavior. I don’t view my reflection with any consternation, I view it with wonder and awe. All any of us know is based on what we may have believed to be the truth but the truth changes so often there is always a need to oversee our daily lives. I cannot live in automatic. I must stay live a conscious life. To know what we may need to reflect on remember…
Your Life is PERFECT!
