Which side do you put the Peanut Butter on vs. the Jelly? What does that say?

the_thinker signs of life 62

I am a firm believer in bettering yourself and finding new ways to open your mind into previously uncharted waters. From the 100 Ways To Be More Conscience listing :

62. Respect the beliefs of others – At no time is it loving or respectful to criticize the beliefs of others. No matter how consciously advanced another person is or isn’t, it is important to respect their thoughts and actions. When you try to force others to adopt your lifestyle, beliefs, and force them to become a more conscious human-being, you are indirectly expressing negative emotion towards that individual; you are getting your ego heavily involved. Forcing others to consciously change is not truly accepting them for who they are. If you feel like you should force others to raise their awareness, perhaps you need to raise your awareness some more! It is important to realize that everyone will have their time to advance consciously and will eventually reach the “top of the mountain” on their journey to their higher consciousness.

I am a firm believer in bettering yourself and finding new ways to open your mind into previously uncharted waters. From the 100 Ways To Be More Conscience listing :

82. Build an accurate model of reality – Building an accurate model of reality is a great way to explore the endless possibilities that life has to offer. Gaining conscious control of your thoughts will aid you in the process of creating your reality. When you are able to take control of your focus, building an accurate model of reality becomes an easier task.

I am a firm believer in bettering yourself and finding new ways to open your mind into previously uncharted waters. From the 100 Ways To Be More Conscience listing :

65. Realize that you are not alone – On your journey towards becoming a more conscious human being, it is important to realize that you are never alone in the process. Someone, somewhere is going through the same process and many have already gone through the process. There are likely many individuals that are more consciously advanced than you are: which is a good thing. Look to these individuals for guidance along the way. We can always look to more conscious individuals for personal guidance and advice in life.

the_thinker the runes > hope

Oh great Magic 8 Ball, regal me with wisdom above the Rune’s … I can’t say I understand why I got this one at this time, but I suspect there is good reason. This is another right hander since the last few left handed pulls have been disappointing, not that the last few right’s haven’t been.

Another great pull from the bag of goodies. This one actually, super really, is applicable. My mother’s middle name was Hope, and my mothers birthday was  22 June 2016. She passed in April (another story) and it’s surprisingly interesting that I got this one.

 

Hope is a light that never fails, a flame burning in the darkest night, an elusive feeling that urges you on when, against all reason, you refuse to give up. Hope is among the most abiding of <insert your belief’s here> gifts.

What would bring you Hope this day? Perhaps something as simple as caring words from a loving friend, or taking that first step, or another day of sobriety. (editors note, ha!) Whatever form of inspiration will nourish your spirit, hold it with care in loving hands.

I am a firm believer in bettering yourself and finding new ways to open your mind into previously uncharted waters. From the 100 Ways To Be More Conscience listing :

17. Pursue a path of spirituality – Pursuing a path of spirituality and becoming more spiritual will aid you considerably in the process of becoming a more conscious human being. Never be afraid to add a new spiritual practice to your arsenal – you never know what may be most effective or a life changing experience.

I am a firm believer in bettering yourself and finding new ways to open your mind into previously uncharted waters. From the 100 Ways To Be More Conscience listing :

27. Think positive, act positive, be positive – Being a positive influence sets a good example for others and for yourself. Positivity and states of being positive are direct effects of raising your consciousness. I highly recommend trying to be a more positive person in all areas of life; you will notice and feel the beneficial changes in your awareness.

I am a firm believer in bettering yourself and finding new ways to open your mind into previously uncharted waters. From the 100 Ways To Be More Conscience listing :

59. Start a personal journal – Starting a personal journal or blog is a great time investment that will allow yourself to become more conscious of your: thoughts, feelings, actions, philosophies, beliefs, etc. Writing entries in a daily journal or on a personal blog can be extremely helpful in the process of understanding your current state of awareness. What is nice about keeping tabs on yourself is the fact that you can watch your progress as you undertake a conscious journey. No matter your strategy for keeping a journal, understand that keeping tabs on yourself and events in your life serves as a great way to develop a deeper sense of understanding, knowledge, and conscious awareness.

the_thinker the runes > surrender

Oh great Magic 8 Ball, regal me with wisdom above the Rune’s … I can’t say I understand why I got this one at this time, but I suspect there is good reason. This is another right hander since the last few left handed pulls have been disappointing, not that the last few right’s haven’t been.

Another great pull from the bag of goodies. Not so long ago, Surrender meant defeat and brought with it shame and dishonor. On the healing journey, Surrender means relinquishing control, for in so do we acknowledge our readiness to heal.

Receiving this Rune, you are being asked to let go of your need to control the present situation, or to release any past experience that continues to trouble you.

I find this to be rather interesting. Control is a fascinating subject, in how it weaves it’s tendrils through it’s victims. Letting go is a challenge itself. Let go.

the_thinker signs of life 18

I am a firm believer in bettering yourself and finding new ways to open your mind into previously uncharted waters. From the 100 Ways To Be More Conscience listing :

18. Express gratitude – Expressing gratitude on a daily basis is a very positive, fulfilling exercise to practice. Ways to express gratitude on a daily basis include: giving thanks for your food, expressing gratitude for yourself and others through prayer (as discussed earlier), complimenting others, and letting another person know that you are thankful for having them in your life. By sharing and expressing gratitude, you feel extremely satisfied and will become more consciously aware of the things that you truly appreciate in life.
