Familiarity Breeds Contempt

strangestOuch! Harsh words to hear and yet so true.

Over the past 6 weeks I have been on a journey that quite frankly has been a turning point in my life!

My life is turning slowly but it is turning! How many times have we heard “we are what we think about”?

I, like most of you, have heard that statement repeated over and over to the point of it becoming familiar. Thus it leads us to contempt.

noun: contempt

the feeling that a person or a thing is beneath consideration, worthless, or deserving scorn.

disregard for something that should be taken into account.

And So it was for me.

I had walked the Spiritual path, I had heard all the positive affirmations that could choke a horse and yet my life revolved pretty much the same day in and day out.

What changed?

My willingness to understand that we can’t just think something once and believe it will happen.

Stop what your doing right now and catch your thoughts. What is going through your mind right now? Amazing how many of those thoughts have nothing to do with what we desire in life.

See what I mean?

How can one thought get past all those other thousand of thoughts happening at rapid fire session? Easy–Learn to focus
