“Human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.” … William James
Wow … am I ever happy! I’m home from the hospital! I’m not only home … but I’m home, healthy and moving ahead again!! There’s no holding me back now … I have survived the fire-walk and I am ready to roar! Life is good and I refuse to see it as anything else … realistically …what would be the point of that anyway? Every moment of every day I find in the outside world a reflection of what is running and galloping around my inner landscape. So … having said that I’m sure that you can see how it behooves me to make sure that the inside spaces of me are populated with Perky Polly’s, Sunshine Sue’s and Faithful Fran’s positive and forward-looking thoughts.
Following some really major surgery in July I was blessed to have an opportunity to stay at an amazing, compassionate and supportive physio-rehab hospital. What an eye opener! Apart from the obvious health benefits and non-stop encouragement; every day I had opportunities to view just how right William Jame was when he said: “Human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.” In that place I witnessed people … who had no chance for any improvement in their physical circumstances … happily participating in life and activities. They were busy making the best … both inside and outside …of what life had handed them. On the flip side … I listened to other souls who … despite how major or minor their injuries were … constantly complained and look for the negative in everything and everyone.
I’m home now … and in more ways than just the obvious physical one. I’ve had a lot of time to think and to observe. I’ve looked without and I’ve spent a great deal of time looking within and I realized that if I don’t like what I see – either inside of me OR in my outside world – than I had best be willing to do something about ME before I start complaining and pointing fingers outward. A dear friend said last night: “The body is the shape of your consciousness.” I agree. Now I am more determined than ever that my inner Home be naturally and happily filled with beautiful, caring and upbeat thoughts … because … I believe … that then my “Inner Polly”and my Consciousness …will be reflected all around me … for myself … and for everyone else to see.
