Driver Training

———————————-Art” ~ 🙂 ~ circa 1906 ——————————–

Oh, how we love cars, especially those of us raised in Western cultures. We love them so much that we can hardly wait to get our driver’s licence. To us, a licence symbolizes freedom to come and go as we please and to, as Steppenwolf expressed in “Born to Be Wild, “get our motor running and head out on the highway! Before we acquire our licence, most of us have to pass a Drivers’ Education Class. We have to study the rules of the road and learn how to properly signal, accelerate, steer, brake, merge, and drive defensively. The lessons are in our best interest. No less is required for those of us who desire to deliberately apply the Law of Attraction.

Before we proceed, it’s important that we understand the nature of our vehicle. It is the body-mind, aka, the person. Contrary to popular belief, such is not the sum of What we are! In truth, we are Spirit–the silent witness that actually drives the body-mind through life. The quality of our personal journey is dependent upon the nature and intensity of our thoughts and feelings. Negative thoughts–such as anger, hatred, revenge, jealousy, envy, pride, and selfishness–can never lead us anywhere good. They create a rough ride and a tough life. Positive thoughts–such as love, kindness, compassion, empathy, generosity, humility, and selflessness–help lead us toward favourable destinations. The destinations we reach depend upon the skill with which we comply with spiritual laws.

So, are we buckled up? Have you checked your mirrors and left the story of your life in the past, where it belongs? Good, we’re off to a great start! Now, please know this: There are two powerful pedals that we must learn to operate before we pull away from the curb. One is Fear–it’s the brake; every time we  step on it (allow it to function in our consciousness) our vehicle slows down. The other pedal is Faith–it’s the accelerator; every time we press on it (feel triumphant joy rise in our heart) our vehicle moves closer to our desired manifestation! Through the power of Awareness (which can be increased through meditation), we’re going to learn how to be more aware of which pedal we’re pushing.

Our Driver Education Course required a set number of days; and the same applies to learning how to deliberately apply the Law of Attraction. In this case, thirty days. During this period–marked faithfully on the calendar–we’re going to monitor our thinking while going about our days. Our goal is to engage only positive thoughts. If we find ourselves concentrating on negative thoughts–either big or small–we’re going to begin our count anew. At the end of thirty days, we will arrive at our destination with a mind trained to focus on the positive aspects of life. The results that we’ll notice after successful completion of this course will make the effort required to pass it seem more than worthwhile.

Dare to dream (and care for one another).

With heartfelt regards,
