The word for today is action. Yes, it all starts within. The inner work that we do, the meditation, the journaling, the introspection, is where all the magic begins, it’s where we set in motion the journeys of our lives. Inner work is where we create the peace and happiness that is so essential to our living full and productive lives. But if we don’t follow that inner work up with action, we are practically guaranteeing a lack of results from all our inner work.
In this philosophy we talk a lot about changing our thinking to change our lives, but it doesn’t stop there. That is only the beginning.
If you want good health, treating and praying for it is good, and changing your beliefs to allow for good health is essential, but you must also do the outside physical things that the body needs to be healthy: exercise, good diet and plenty of rest, medical treatment if necessary.
If you want financial abundance, you must know that you are worthy of it, but then you must also do the outside work. If you are self employed, you must charge enough for your work. If you are unemployed, you must go out and do the process of finding a job. If you are under employed, you must find additional work. You must manage your money well and develop multiple sources of income.
If you want a good relationship, an intimate partnership with another human being, yes it is essential that you first have a good intimate relationship with yourself before you can accomplish it with another, but then you must do the outside work. Create a life for yourself that has room for another. Put yourself out there so that you have the opportunity to meet others.
What is it you are striving for today? It is right and good that you do the inner work first. But then you must take action. A little bit, every day, consistently. A few steps each day towards your goals. Combine the inner work with action and you have a magical formula for results!
Today, and every day, I have done my inner work. I am peaceful and happy and connected with my Source, fully prepared and able and willing to take the action necessary to get results.
