“Hell yes! This walking thing, I am so gonna own that!”
Have you ever heard this quote? The people who get the most out of LIFE are the ones who ask the best questions. John Demartini D.C. says it this way; “Your life is defined by your INNER MOST DOMINANT THOUGHT.” What does our internal state have to do with our outer reality or for that matter our physical functions? I like to think that most of you reading this will know that everything is connected. That is our motto in the chiropractic world.
Can your inner most dominant thought actually be a feeling? Am I excited to wake up every morning? Or am I afraid of something? Am I marinating my mind in dread or do I feel confident? Do I feel at ease or in angst? Again, is it possible that for many of us our INNER MOST DOMINANT thought is actually a feeling we always carry within? I know that my inner state is a momentary choice. Do you know this or doubt it? For example I remember when I was in my early twenties; I would compare myself to others and then hear this distinct voice in my mind “You’ve still got time.” That was me making a choice. I wasn’t conscious of it then, but I am now. It can be very disconcerting when I contemplate the impact of this unconscious habit…but that is another blog for another choice.
I was postponing living my Life because of some feeling inside me. It was as if I didn’t ‘feel’ like I was enough. One thing I have learned since then is that there’s no one coming. “If it is to be it is up to me“. Is the title above correct? And if so; what is the “stuff”? It is my intention that writing this blog will shift my perspective and possibly by association yours. So Here it comes. Each of us has a life to live. This life can only be lived NOW. “Seize the day“. Then there are the conditions or situations in our “one wild and crazy Life”. So back to the question at hand. Are you. am I still waiting? What is the inner most dominant feeling behind delay? Why am I prone to postponing my one real life? Why would any of us WAIT before doing something with or about the stuff you/we have put in our own path? What better time than NOW is there to act? When will NOW be the right time? What is stuff anyway. Stuff is conditions. Stuff are situations and relationships. Stuff can be deep habits we have meticulously grooved our lives into. Don’t let anything or anyone mess with my stash of stuff can actually become an inner most dominant thought. SCAREY.
What is the way out? Here’s where this can become interesting. How many of me are in here I have often thought. The answer is two. BJ Palmer the developer of the chiropractic profession used to refer to himself as “WE”. He didn’t mean the royal we but he did mean Educated and Innate. Innate is the Intelligence which animates the Living Universe. Innate knows everything and has always been whereas educated begins and ends within this lifespan.
Here is a quote that will give you the feeling for Innate Intelligence as the basis of the “natural success mindset” we are each born with.
“We as humans were all born with the natural ability to create the state of ‘knowing something would be true.’ We used it to learn to walk. We were not able to communicate fully at that time, but if we were you would speak to the child and the child would be able to say… “Hell yes! This walking thing, I am so gonna own that! That’s happening! I don’t care what I have to do… I KNOW I am going to be walking soon!!” ” Andy Shaw,
