Some musings and thoughts from this journey through life.
Each week I will share an aphorism/thought from, "Tiny Thoughts for Personal Transformation", or just a general thought, to encourage people to see the world from a different perspective.
These thoughts are meant to be contemplative rather than instructive and, as people read the thought they might ponder: What does this thought mean to me? Does this thought resonate with me? Do I agree or disagree with it? Can it be used in any way to improve the quality of my life? Can it benefit those I love?
Beside each thought/aphorism I will add some additional information or insights that might be of use to the reader. I say "might" because I know that we all read things differently and anything that I share is my truth and is clouded by my bias; therefore, what I find useful or important may be insignificant to somebody else. I never wish to impose on anyone else, nor do I wish to give advice on how somebody should or should not do, so please only use what works for you and leave what doesn’t.
The key is that THOUGHTS ARE THINGS, they create our life, they determine our future and, by expanding our awareness, we become empowered and can more readily transform our lives into what we want it to be.
** Sorry for the recent delay between posts, I am just finishing my next book - More Tiny Thoughts for Personal Transformation - and it has taken up most of my time. **
Affirmation for this week
|Posted by tinythoughtguy on April 13, 2015 at 1:05 PM||comments ()|
I realize that affirmations are very personal and everyone needs to create and use them for the specific situation in their lives; however, this one has been bouncing around in my head all week and I thought it may benefit somebody out there as well.
"The Divine universal power always works in and through me for my highest good."
The moment is precious, cherish it
|Posted by tinythoughtguy on April 6, 2015 at 6:00 PM||comments ()|
Today is the best day of your life. Actually, this moment is the best moment of your life. Why? Because it is the only moment you truly have. Celebrate every moment because none is more precious than the other, and once you experience this moment, it is gone forever. Perhaps your outer experience is not what you want it to be at this moment, but your inner landscape is determined by you, and that is what truly counts.
Why listen to the weather report if you never go outside?

Life is for living and whether we choose to jump in and participate or to simply sit on the sidelines and observe, it will pass just the same; however, the moments that we experience, if we are actively participating, will be very different than if we were to take a passive role and float through life as a cork on the ocean.
This is in no way advocating ‘busyness” or suggesting that we need to be physically busy all the time, nor is it advocating physic...Read Full Post »

Perhaps this is not an uplifting thought, but I believe that somebody reading this post needs to hear this particular message today an, even if that person isn’t you, perhaps this message will mean something to you too someday.
Realize that someday the words you speak to someone will be the last thing they hear from you and the last time that they hear your voice. Will those words uplift and inspire or will they be words that hurt? Will those words reflect yo...Read Full Post »
Whose voice are you listening to?

There were people who disapproved of Gandhi, Jesus, Mother Teresa, Buddha, Martin Luther King and every great person in history. What if they gave in to their naysayers? What would the world be like if everyone who had a dream of making the world a better place gave in to the people who wanted it to stay the same?

There is no such thing as a small miracle
|Posted by tinythoughtguy on March 9, 2015 at 4:30 PM||comments ()|
The essence of what this aphorism is trying to convey is that everything in existence: from the smallest sub-atomic particles, all the way up to galaxies; from single droplets of water to the vast oceans and from amoebas to elephants, all perfectly unique and uniquely perfect. The fact that these things even exist is a miracle in, and of, itself.
Likewise, the motions of the planets, the spinning of a spider web, the movement of light, the forces of gravity and eve...Read Full Post »
If you can't find love, maybe you need to clean your mirror.
|Posted by tinythoughtguy on March 2, 2015 at 2:30 PM||comments ()|
It seems that people often go looking for love in the external world when they have yet to love the most important person in their life, themselves.
To love yourself is not selfish, it is essential because until you love yourself, until you value yourself, until you understand what love is, how can you love another? As the saying goes, "How can you give what you do not have?"
Also, if you are looking for someone to love in the external w...Read Full Post »
What our mind does resist there our energy does persist.
|Posted by tinythoughtguy on February 16, 2015 at 2:30 AM||comments ()|
Whether it’s a lion, a turtle, a problem at work, a problem with a spouse etc., the fact is that when we try not to think about something, that process itself will cause us to think about what we didn’t want to think about. And, the more we think about something the more energy we give it. Did you know that when you have a thought you are physically creating chemical and electrical changes in your body (Dr. Joe Dispenza has written several great books on this subject, as has Dr. B...Read Full Post »
Are you happy with the things you possess, or do they possess your happiness?
|Posted by tinythoughtguy on February 9, 2015 at 7:00 PM||comments ()|
When we come into this world we have nothing, other than a body that doesn’t listen to us, and yet, as babies, we’re happy in our natural state. We don’t own anything, we can’t do anything, we can’t even say anything and somehow we are happy. And, in those moments when we were unhappy, we made our point and went back to being happy. We did not sit and ponder the events leading to our unhappiness, we did not ponder why we were unhappy, we simply went back to our n...Read Full Post »
That which you keep dies with you, that which you share lives on.
|Posted by tinythoughtguy on February 2, 2015 at 3:30 PM||comments ()|
Certainly most of you know that the physical possessions we “own” are left behind when we die, but how many have considered that we also leave behind all of the non-physical gifts and experiences we have been bestowed with?
Having been fortunate enough to spend time as a volunteer in a hospice it really hit home one day how everyone has talents, gifts and experiences and, unless these are shared with others, they will disappear from this physical plain ...Read Full Post »
