Thoughts For The Day

Thoughts Plane

“When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.” ~ Henry Ford

MarDrags’ Thoughts:

Sometimes it feels like the world is working against us, but we have the power to fly into it, face it, rise above it…and soar. Face the wind…and listen.

Thoughts Discouragement

“Discouragement is a negative emotion with more than one trick up its dark sleeve. It tricks you into mentally or emotionally dwelling in the very place you want to leave. Drop all such sorrow permanently by daring to see through this deception of the unconscious mind. You have a destination far beyond where you find yourself standing today”  ~ Guy Finley

MarDrags’ Thoughts:

Remember, there is a bigger picture than just the snapshot you are looking at today. This day and its difficulties do not define you as a whole person, or the whole of your life. Tomorrow, you will wake and have another chance to do it differently or make another choice. Trick the trickster of the deception Guy Finley speaks of and see through it, thereby taking all the power away from that negative emotion. Seek to have the courage to step out of discouragement, who only wants us to stay there because, on it’s own, it has no power.

Thoughts Cosmic

“We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.”  ~ Paul Coelho

MarDrags’ Thoughts:

Sometimes, when I am in a deep reflective mood, I think about the vastness of the universe, all the stars, planets, and living things that inhabit our world. I think about the expanse of time…how it has gone on and will go on eternally. I think about all those people who have gone before us…and those that will come after us. And the hugeness of all of that puts any problems or discomforts I have into perspective. What becomes most important is what the quote says above…”we stop for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, love, and share.” That is, indeed, the most precious moment of our existence. Everything else just falls away, will change or evolve. Make those precious moments count!

  1. Good reminders. I’ve been working through this process over the past 24 hours. For anyone who engages with the world, I believe it is a continuous process from peace to turmoil and back again. Many mistakenly feel there is something wrong with them if they have a bad day or feel down. A moment of discord is natural. The key is to not get caught up in it such that we stay in discord. Know it is just emotion, it too shall pass if we let it, and better feelings will come. Thanks for the encouraging words. Namaste.

    • So very true! And I think some feel like they have to “stay” either in happy mode or discouragement…forgetting just what you say…that life is an ebb and flow and we will cycle through those emotions and many more. Feel them all and let them go, and move on. Hope your day is just what you want it to be! Blessings on you!
