Social Desires

Parsifal's Social Desires

INTRODUCTION

The financial world is rejoicing, money is being made, cyclones batter the coast line. People are enjoying life, eating out in restaurants and seeing live shows, cinema and many facets of a lovely world to live in. Economic management is just the means of balancing the world, but heaven and hell are real forces as well and we have to deal with the good and bad, loves and hates. If it were always a perfect world everywhere, people would always be happy, but the joy would be short lived anyway in bordom and self despair as that is not reality. We just have to manage resources the best we can with what we have got and deal with the situation and circumstances as they are dealt out to us day by day, forward planning and budgeting is always a must but sometimes usually we need some contingency management to help in crisis situations and manage in fallen conditions. We will never have Adam and Eve all over again, but as generations manifest and progress there is a different set of people to deal with the learning circle and curves of life. Alcohol, nicatine and substance abuse, sexual imorality, deal us a whole new set of depressive conditions with anxiety disorders and manifestations of self abusive conditions, our world becomes abused as well. Still we work to aleviate the pain and problems of a success driven society and doctors, hospitals and pharmacies are just there waiting for the social destrucion of our minds and bodies. Healing and replenishment is just the first signs of rejuvination in rehabilitation and the work must continue. We have to look for a nondestructive path to journey through life, to live and not die, to rejoice and not complain. However life's problems and challenges are being dealt up to us all the time in confronting ways and means, in that we have to manage the best we can to live, survive and excel above these self inflicted mental atrosities. Finding the clear and perfect path is often not so obvious and in an unobtrucive way we are left on our own to fend for ourselves a lot of the time, because of pride and self image and wanting people to think highly of ourselves, when it is just a big job to live the right way all the time as the main thing in life. We should be listening and talking more and learning by our mistakes and not making them again. Social Desires aims to address and highlight these needs and conditions and help to show ways to possibly alleviate some of the pain and hurts from these wrong and destructive manifestaitions. By seeing clearly the right way through the tunnel to come out the other side on top of the situation and not taken by it. This will be continued throughout the book and as you read I will seem to try and explain some of these ramifications of misguided or misdirected life styles and hopefully address the right way to live out in social conditions, where we have the mentality of positive and purposefully, personality driven life styles.

CHAPTER 1 CONSOLIDATING EFFORTS

1 Understanding Behaviour

Understanding behaviour is concieving the adaption of a social order system and abiding by it. It can be disrespected or regarded as the normal, but social entertaining on a public level portrays character references which are social behaviour. Understanding behavior is not restricted to people, but animals have subject conditions to climate control of which their behavior are predicted or pattern on by geographical areas or species type. I will consider futher peoples patterns and conditions and try not to relate or reflect on associations with animals, even though symptomatically their can be some connections. Behaviour is determined by social class, social systems, income level, job type and personality traits (which incorporates idiosyncracies). This personality pattern is a make up of characteristic traits and behavioral patterns that can be detected and recorded by associations of normal and abnormal behavior. Autosyncratic persons are those who must portray idiosyncracies as a usual style of reflecting personality traits and they can have behavioral problems of extreme and eccentric behavior, which reflects abnormal behaviour.Radical and self attention seeking behaviours also fall into the abnormal behaviour.Consistent conforming patterns reflect normal traits of behaviour. It is only those who carefully researched and abide in majority opinionated statistics, that they are those who confrom to normal behavioural patterns. Obviously one would not want to deviate to much from normal patterns of behaviour, but to remain confined or conformed to a working model or system of society. However to maintain social norms in a working job or carreer one must satisfy normal behavioral patterns. Abstract and diverse thinking is not wrong, but can be seen as abnormal or nonconforming. To remiain consistent with behavoural patterns one must do enough general reading to understand the social norms, as controversial attitudes are anti social behaviour are unacceptable in peoples eyes or general respects. Generally understanding conscenous of opinion will help you to appreciate and understand normal behavior, which is necessary for working lifestyles and business careers. Organisational minds are bettter working processes for the social perspective and this also invites and encourages a social networking behavior which is becoming more relevant and accepted in pertanent modern thinking companies and working situations. So undertanding behaviour is really a reflection on normal thinking attitudes or valued and accepted societal structures and patterns of our relevant world.

2 Business Barrier

Understanding any business barrier, is developing an appreciation for patterns and trends within the business world that would reflect or detract from normal social situations. It is these abnormal conceptions that formulate business barriers and interupt the normal ways or doing things. Plain and clear consise thinking leads to normal business behaviours. Patterning on socially accepted behaviours is a better way of creating or generating business processes and procedures for industry success and sales components. Like the constepated thought processes or self behavioural rights, business barriers are obstacles to overcome on the normal societal behavioral patterns of work success and networking generations of profit turnover. Negative ideas or too much reflection on self, reduces to societal impact of interaction and networking achievement of business goal attaining objectives. We have different types of barriers in life. You have the horse barrier at the race track, you have The Great Bariier Reef off The North Queensland Coast, but you don't have sea horse races on coral reefs, you have to make a differentiation bewteen the two. Just like you have the language barrier of many races, you have objections to sales proposals for specific reasons. This is the business barrier, because you don't have a thorough understandfing of the product and you need clarification on particulars before you purchase or buy the goods. Like our sea horse race, you don't have the necessary criterion to pay money for a service in that as a unfinancial situation. We have therefore a set of unmerited circumstances and unauthorized constituencies, that means therefore that we have a business barrier in conducting a transaction. because we can't agree to terms of trade, we have a business barrier. If the federal tax system was so easy to understand we would not need politicians to continually and ongoingly to sort out tax reform which is never really finalised and that is an eternal business barrier. We are suseptable to change all the time on an ongoing basis as in, nothing ever stays the same and that we will have to constantly change things to determine relative validity and unltimately update things to a new reality all the time.This depends on workload, where spending is required and not required. When something that has money allocated for it and when it has to be spent. There is always a varying degree of change with nearly everything. Change in itself can be a business barrier and you if have two preconceived ideas of how to do the job and neither can agree on the best final way to implement and achieve the conceived vision for a result, consequentally the job does not get done. This is the unltimate in a businees barriers, when the logic of doing work is impeded by the simple failure of how to do it and establishing an agreement in doing a job, that seems as though it is never being determined. Frustration sets in and you need an arbitrator or admisitrator, to sort out your financial mess or help address you preconcieved ideas into a vison, to becoming a reality of a tangible thing or result. The business barrier is there for an obstruction to getting work done and organising work load helps to sort through the problem of what is the business barrier leaving what is adressed or unadressed for work processing.

3 Spiritual Awareness

In a world of good and evil, where the spirituality of people is becoming their God, where the self gratification and indulgences add to peoples meaning and fail to address the necessary denials and healthy restrictions for clean living. We have a fallen society and the internet is also becoming a spiritual destructive force for young lives and self ramifications. However all is not lost and the internet can also be a positive spiritual force, for bank accounts, general knowledge and information, creating travel destination ideas, entertainment venues and also the many good forms of music that you can download. We have to be careful though that our minds are not all and totally consumed with ideas on how to keep ourselves happy all the time while work is neglected and money becomes a physical difficulty. Creating and being aware of our sprituality is a positive sense and force if we learn to adapt and be alert to our spiritual needs and aspirations. Have a sense of spiritual awareness, I will reiterate again is a positive idea in the sense that our happiness is a reflection on what we do and how we input peace into our lives. We must learn to balance the hardship of work activities with relaxational type thearopies, remebering that too much complacancy is also soul destructive. So here we are with this balance seeking identity for a positive disposition and spiritual happiness, by being aware of our habitat and living conditions for survival and self reflection. This is not a behavioural self analysis, but a personal relfection on how to be a better person by doing and thinking or saying and expressing right minded ideas of positive identity and things to do that are personally and spiritually life enrivching. This is not going to turn into a lecture on how to live, but I will say that church attendance is encouraged and staying clear of negative places where soul destroying activities take precedence on soul enriching positive venues, such as the theatre, ballet or orchestral arangements. What we are looking for is culturally advancing and character building places that create diversity of values in spiritually strong habitations. Let us leave it there and consider also the value of family and freinds for entertainment where social networks within our immediate cirle of community are there as strengtheners and backbone building cultures which are put in place to surround us for spiritual nuturing and nourishing in our daily lives and living conditions.

4 Mental Stability

Well being mental is not all that it cracked up to be, I can vouch for that. The thing is that once you have recogonised that you have a mental illness, it is all about treating it ad getting well. No one likes not having a logical mindset or clear thing for making daily decisions. Mental stability is about is about spiritual and physical well being, which is closely followed by being wel mentally. This (mental illness) is both a challenging and delibitating illness that affects your mind and thinking and to have stability of mind then you have to have a brain that is cognitvely conditioned to think normally. In an abstract world the idea of being normal is a hard to define as a word by itself, but rational and congruent thinking with a community service minded outlook, helps the internal mindset to function under this condition of and as being normal. Mental stability is also about focusing on the positives in life and by letting the negative aspects slip by until you are able and capable to deal with them, first you must get well and have that biological sense of well being, in that your thinking logical and normally congruently and inline with the common and group thought of a functioning society. mental stability means that you can work and generally hold down a job for a sustained period of time, it means that you can communicate on a rational level in society and relate to conscenous depictures of reasonable expectations of others. It means being inline with other peoples rational ideas that agree with your own and allowing independance to assist you with the day to day plans and goals to help others who may also have this mental illness. Normal working aspects and objectives then come intoplay in putting social structures and people networks together, where by you can interealte and raitional function normal or what might be considered normal in a family and community relationships. Once again it is good and advisable to have some church attendance and assistance where by you can relate with people who have a right persepective on life and also fit into small groups to study the Bible.This social interaction and even a quiet prayer time is all positively stimulating to functioning normal. Mental stability is indeed hard to achieve and once you have gone off the track too far is is a long, hard and slow journey back on the right and normal path, but yes you can do it, with enough commintent and determination, you can eventually achieve this much desired condition of mental stabily once again. You may have once known it when you were young or you may be young still and are still seeking and in search of it, but don't give up as it is a treasure that is well and for all its efforts worth stiving for.Try and drink plenty of clean and clear water. With Gods help you can do it, reach mental stability.

5 Physical Well Being

Physical well being is about being healthy, drinking plenty of water, to function normally under adverse conditions. The earth is a big body of land and water, it has a hard shell and a soft core and surface with the body being full of water, much like people and in fact, life was originally designed like that to support human regeneration. Animals are in the same food chain but unlike plants which are also for food, move about like the homeo erectus that makes us human beings.This system of sustanence is all important in supporting life and its continual reproduction. Why do I say all this when talking about physical well being, because the earth is a physical thing just as we are as humans, physics is in fact the applied science of human behaviour and adaption in cohabitation with nature.Therefore in order to understand wellness, we must understand physics, that in by having the right answers to science, we have the right mind for climatic adaption and relationship understanding in perspective to our own human nature. Physical well being is very closely related to mental well being and infact the two go closely together hand in hand, in that the understanding of each of the two is an interelated connection between the two. That is mind and body working together in a well and sound state of well being.The body must work properly for the mind to function and the mind must conversely correlate to combine and connect together. So we have a working human being functioning normally, that is with skills and abilities to work, talk and function in a society that supports coexistance. Once we have a normal state of well being in the body we can help to support the workforce and be of a productive and valued contributer to the world in which we live and the society in which we participate and dwell in to help the rest of the community function well. By reducing toxic intake and increasing in natural foods and drinks we can centre in on the most benefical conditions for nutrition and attain the pyschological advantage for our own well being so that we can contribute back to others to get to the same state of well being. Functioning normally after all is the most desired state of being in that we rationalize common sense to optimize our mental well being through a sound state of mind to adapt and apply to our well state of physical being. Therefore this is what we are or what we should have begun to have been and obtain to through healthy diets and physical exercise to the state of physical well being.

6 Psychological Effects

Psychological affects are the adaption from the abnormal to the normal, in that we are effected by our environment and sociological conditions that play a psychological part in our lives and minds. Many things come in the form of hindrances to our daily activities and many detractions and deviations suggest to relate to the the toxic world in which we live. The attractions of the niceties of life are nearly always far to attractive to refuse, but also far to dangerous to accept and be enticed by. In fact the more we self indulge the more we come to deteriorate in our health and well being. It has foten be said that the simple things in life are often the best and this is infact all too true. A glass of water, fresh vegetables and a daily protein intake of red or white meat, plus the necessary work or exercise to help the food pass through our bodies is all to essential for the well being of the body and the physical well being of the mind mentally. Psychological effects could be in the form of drugs or addictions, acholhol and nicotine, indeed illicit sex and all can be a distraction in functioning normally. To function normally should be our highest desire in life, as in coexistance and ralationship with others is the way that we reflect ourselves with the world we live in, community, society and work places are in fact the political healthy life styles of communication, adaption and leadership in a structurally high and organised world. Psychological effects are also alter ego and id fuctioning self indulgent steriotypes of esscentrical idiosyncrisis. In other words, our own self importance is trying to take over the world instead of living to help and care for others.This is indeed the way to counteract the pyshchological effects of selfcenteredness and while we still try to focus on ourselves, the aim is to take the focus off ourselves and focus on others. This externality on others is the focus that makes us well and healthy, in that thinking of others before yourself is the healthy way to live and function healthily and happily internally. Therefore let us function normally by looking outwood and upwood to higher planes of well being, eleviating the negative effects of pyschological behaviour which introverts us and makes us depressed, look to God and others, for support and what you can contribute to them for what they need, in that you will be happy by doing so.

CHAPTER 2 A NEW DIRECTION

7 One Step Closer

Life is full of decisions and we continually make them all the time. First we have to decide our priorities and then the direction will will take in life to focus our aims, goals, energies and ambitions. We have to choose to have a faith that is real, alive and vibrant and embrace eternity as a real solution to the problem of life and death. Choosing to take decisions and then masking the right ones is one of those hard core parts and aspects of life that simply cannot be accounted for in the normal way as the precious gift of life that we all impart and undertake is so much greater than the decision to die. Never the less death is real and we have to do our best to avoid it at all costs. Being smart and staying out of trouble is only the first step in the direction of living longer lives and aiming for the God given gift of longetivity. If God gives the gift, then we must follow God and if money is the central key to our lives and we follow money, then unfortuately death is the main result. It is hard to put a priority on life and like the light that has come into the world, so the end is ever so soon and present. What we all should be looking for is to be taking one step closer to God each day and following in that direction where he has the best for us and has walked the path first, where the right ways of tried and proven results, lead and guide our lives to manifest themselves in the realm of eternity and heaven here on earth. One step closer, should be one step further in the right direction of what God has planned for ourr lives.The problem is that the central focus on self is all too important and we lose the picture of the vision of the greater purpose outside ourselves. One where there is a world without war and where peace and happiness is the all important idea of goal attainment. We can't afford to rest while one man lies on the street dieing and we can't give up hope of one more soul being one to heaven, while others in their disbelief are unrepentantly going to hell. The key is a simple one and that is putting others first before yourself. The one step closer is the achievement of the goal of the new direction taking place and leading into the right way of a positive future which is brighter and happier for all. Give up your hell bent ways of self importance and refocus on the new direction of being one step closer to God in the new direction of eternal life.

8 Positive Improvement

Looking for the new direction of a positive improvement is the way of turning from your old self and repenting to find anew the gift of life and than the old self destructive path that you were on leading to death. Give up on what has failed in the past and look for the tried and true results of positive behaviour that lead to life and not death. There is no point in self futility and fighting with yourself to overcome recongnised disorder, but once you do you must turn your life around and go in the opposite direction, one that will lead you out of strife and the pital of your previous own evil desires and place you in a positive place of importance, one where your life is being recognised as worth while and not self defeting. You can't win all by yourself and you need the support of people who are willing to help, first you must recognise your own self ambitions of destructiveness and realign to focus on the next step of your life and that is living for others, by offering help from yourself and asking for help from others when you need it. The world is indeed a big place and none of us are alone, we all must recognise that central point of dependance on each other and not revert to our own introvertive selfness of greed, corruption and self importance. There are many self destructive forces that drag us into the ditch of a life in hell. Anxiety, stress and depression, which are all a manifestation of living a bad lifestyle. Alochol abuse, drug dependancy, casual sexual relationships that waste time and money creating unhappisness instead of the beautiful picture of a loving and lasting marriage. Having a family is one of the greatest gifts on earth and God designed us for that very purpose to show the love to children so that they grow up in the right way. If we can only achieve this then we have attained the central goal to relationship with God and that is the ultimate purpose of what life is all about anyway. The best we can ever hope to achieve is a relationship with God and others in a church or moral environment, that is really what finding positive improvement in life is all about. Then we must aim and seek to maintain this right and moral perspective of right living to hand the key down to others in future generation further down the track that we ourselves have allready walked. be good and multiply, but do it in the right ways and within the guidleines of acceptable social behavior. Trust the truth and live out what is right in your life once you have established it, love God and others and accept the things that you cannot chnage, just as readilly as you embrace the change that is posiitive for the environment in which the area of our hearts and minds ajust and adapt to live. With God's blessing I invite you and encourage you to try and change to the new direction of positive improvement.

9 Negative Reaction

The furture direction of the new way of living has some negatives. people are stuck in their old way of doing things an do not wnat to change. As well, social pleasures overide the health issues of longetivity. WE all tend to think of our own happiness first and this can be in a form of distorted thinking. The more I get the happier I will be instead of caring about the well being of others, we pigheadedly think of oursleves and and our own personal deserires for pleasure and what self gains we can atrratc an then have more money to buy more things with, Sure we all need more money for the daily necessities of food and bills, suporting a family kids enjoyment and entertainment, but for ourselves we have to learn to be reserved and shrugal in the affordability of cost of living expenses. Restraint and caution are often better than indulgence and splashing out on spending sprees, by exercising restraint in spending we are learning to conserve resources for a longer time some where not to far or in the distant future of our spending requirements. Saving is the necessary precaution of budgeting and spending and saving, while often completely opposed, counterbalance one another in what we can have and what we cannot but must reserve for another time. Thinking of ourselves is right where saving is concerned, but the outlandish spending of indulgent lunches all the time for the expansion of our waste lines simply does not add up or make sense when you must consdier health benefits by working and exercise. We simply must learn to show restraint and exercixe caution in living not only with food but also with fuel as necessary energies are produced but lacidaisical attitudes to exercising care and consideration towards others is nonoccurring and can lead to pointless accidents and incapacitations. We must be frugal and show retraint without depriving ourself of all enjoyment, as some indulgenses are required to be happy but with the caring attitude towards others and the benefical reciprocal reply to benefit others. I don't want to be a wet blanket in all directiosn but just show and shine a little light on the advantages of restraint for saving and having enough for when you really need it than simply wasting all money all at ionce on what seems to be the pointless exercise of self indulgence.The negative reation to health is against self indulgence but restraint shows the exercise of care.

10 Test Of Endurance

The test of endurance is often associated with patience in going the distance, when the tough get tired the tired get going and the ones who rested are often more fit to going further. The test of endurance is a matter of resta nd recouperation as much as it is stamina and endurance, reserving energies and attaining goal acomplishment by or for longetivity is what it means to go the distance rather than sometimes how much we have travelelled and enjoyed ourself.Though with careful management and planning, goal setting can be obtained through pacing ourself and caring about resources for others in the long and enduring road and journey of life. Really there are not shortcuts anyway and to travel as long and far as we need to do so to wisely learn to enjoy life instead. The further we can go in attaining the richness of the gift of eternal life is not only in death and heaven but on earth happiness. Let us not cut ourselves off short and while there is life there is hope in all aspects of a better and brighter future for each and all. To go the distanace gives us a sense of accomplishment and also the happiness of longetivity. Life was not never meant to always be a sprint race and the fastest is not nessecarily the quickest or the fittest, while health concerns are relevant in all types of racing the furture direction for the human race of community and social lives in not one in the thrill of the moment, but in the test of endurance for longetivity. The quick are often the dead and those who pace themself, often travel the road longer than the one who must have everthing at once. Going the distance in my idea of things leaves the short distant race to those who simply can't wait for anything and must have it all not and who simply pay with their lives for the indulgence. Sure is good to get what you want, but at a slow and careful pace. The rich certainly do not have what the really want all the time and they are usually the unhappiest with all their self indulgences. So going along the road at life at a steady and careful pace is much more satisfying and fulfiling than the take what you can at any given piint of time and place. We all must remember to show retraint in the getting of things and while fresh salmon and scotch fillet are often better tasteing than canned tuna and vegemite sandwiches, there is often a better track waiting down the road to take to get all the benifits of life than simply taking the best of everything every time you can at every opportunity. The test of endurance is a matter of work and pleasure, wanting and needing, recieving and taking and it is also a mater of restraint and caution. We need to recoginise the difference through discernment and choose our ways carefully and with caution. Restraint and caution may be really tangently opposed to indulgence self enjoymentbut longetivity is proven through self denial of things on earth for the treasures of heaven which are much more satisfying and give us more happiness here on earth. In other words The Road Of Life instead of drivingThe Rolls Royce down it is more enticing to me.Good Day and God Bless. 

11 Forever Determining

People are forever determining there future direction and making choices in the way they lead their lives. These conscientious decisons are what makes up are personalities and creates our character as well as the purposes and reasons for the actions that we take in our life's direction. We can go all out and aim for the top of a career path or take our time reading and relaxing for better pacing and peace of mind. Of course the quick and hard road of wanting more money all the time is often the creation of health issues, while establishing a firm bank account or foothold on the market for a prosperous retirement. Unfortunately we can't have our cake and eat it to, we can't have large bank accounts and sit on our hands in peaceful retirement. We are forever determining our paths by the choices that we make. It would be nice to think that you could accumulate enough money for all those rainy days down the track, but we soon run out of funds again sitting on our hands relaxing and we then have to seek another way for gainful employment or making money. If we constantly make choices and decisions to determine our path for ourselves are we leaving God out of the picture by taking our own personal future direction into our own hands. Of cource this is a management tactic, but we often lose sight of the bigger picture and purpose that God has in our lives and what He requires for us to do for an eternal destination. This to is another consideration that we must all take into account when we are forever determining our lives, just where does God fit in or if at all. Others say, that you should have all things in moderation and bring God into your picture with the rest of your own ideas, this is having many irons in the fire, but you have to know when they are hot enough to take them out and use them. We can include God in our own directions if we listen to Him and His giuidlines and give back a little for that effort. So we are forever determining our owm lives and God is to because we don't always get what we want as other people are also competeing for that right of getiing their own way. When the path crosses for example we have to make choices that will suit other people as well as ourselves to compromise our own situation. This competitive edging of fighting for our own ideals loses the focus on working for others and earning that money. So we are forever determining our own paths at the expense of others to put it roundly. The harder we work for ourselves the more we are in a compromising situation with others. However life is good and that is what makes it interesting for us as, in that if we always got our own way life, would be rather boring and that forever detirmining that situation is really a forever compromising determination of others. We must be content with what we have got when we have enough and that is the key to balance and harmony. Try and let God do the determining and forever plan to fit in with the goals of the bigger picture of His directions for the unltimate success of fitting in with living with kingdom purposes for your lives.

12 Making Right Decisions

Making right decisions is part of the fine tuning for the ideal end destination for our lives. Of course the path is just as important on the journey as the end result of success, however you define it. Success orientation can be our central focus instead or an eternal plan for heaven and that elusive retirement package of peace and happiness in a vibrant and happy environment. This goal of an idealistic lifestyle is often elusive and hard to get, but if we can travel the path that leads to this elusive gift of eternal happiness we find the common cause and purpose of a sustained environment to be maintained and survived by all. Making right decisions should lead to utopia and often it does, but also often it does not. Capitalizing on the right path as we take the journey of life is how we learn to manage our unique ideal situation of living life. The to making wrong decisions leads us down the path of trouble and corruption and we should avoid these wrong directions at all times and at all costs.The beauty of this living right is the production of happiness and that the fruit of our efforts are highly rewarded by making right choices. God path is the right one if you can find it but it is narrow and hard, it can be also lonely if you go it by your self and there are many people who are commonly seeking the right, true and narrow path of life which you can find and see and walk the path together. This community of bonding or family interaction is a societal high if you can manage to attain this path. Right deciseions will lead you there but you must make right decisions all the time, read, write and look to God for guidence. Laws are made for a reason and to follow then is pure and righteous wisdom, which lead to life and eternity that God calls us to endure and live. God is the right way first and money both helps and comes by living under Gods direction of making right and guided decisions for our lives. Go to Him in prayer and ask for assistance as He is only to happy to help for those and all who ask. Stay in tune with yourself while you seek God and remember to focus on Him as you try and eventuate to make those right decisions of the right way to take in life. Making right decisions not only leads in the right direction along the path of life but also makes us happy in the course of the process. This is the ideal and critical path to take if we can only find it and make the right decisions to be happy. Making money and being rich may be right to some people but the journey is always more important than the final destination and making right choices with purpose will give you enough money to be content with and rich in heavenly treasures, which are more than all the material possessions on earth.

CHAPTER 3 FORWARD PROGRESS

13 The Right Direction

The right direction is likely to be the new direction if we take in to account making right decisons and forever determining. The right direction is a path for peace and happiness first which sets the palce for everything else to fall into line. If we have a contentment of mind and we have found our niche in life to earn an income, we can then safely and happpily pursue that path of righteousness and travel down the road of the the long and enduring path of eternal life.This is the happy place to be in, chosing the right direction to take and making right and honest decisions for goal setting and then plan achievement. The purpose also then becomes a common one of mainstream thinking for the common goal of working together and united in the cause of the common good of and for peace for all. The right dierection to take may well be the only one if you are committed to this direction, but many however fall off the path and travel the wrong road to death instead of peace and hapiness by right living. Correcting this worng patha nd road at an early stage is critical to the survival of the individual. It is no longer the survival of the fittest, but the ensuring that, we are all out to help those who have made the poor decisions of travelling the wrong road. If we are doing the right thing by helping others we prosper and gain in the happiness department by sharing the love of right thinking around to learn to love and cherish others for the pursual of peace and happiness in their lives and then also henceforth and so on in our own lives for the continual right thinking and the right path of decision making and direction taking. Love, peace, joy, kindness and goodness are all fruits that we need to pursure for the eternal happiness of all. We should no longer walk a self destructive path once we have seen the light and therefore continue in this new and right direction of peace and happiness for all. The consequences of wrong or bad decision making are or can be horrendous, but with early retrival of the wrong doers thinking, for a correct and right path that can once again be made and started in order to further and future continue in the right direction forever. This is the right and required path and desired result of the work we are doing to help and assist others see the light of the right path of the correct direction in life for making choices. The right path could be the write path which is picked up and recognised by experience and endurement that they to who have learnt right decision making can then inturn lead and guide and instruct others in the path of right decsion making for the right and critical path of success.

14 Onward And Upward

Onward and upward is the once corrected path of right thing and direction taking to continue in that direction forever. Onward and upward, higher and higher in our thinking, the sky is the limit and some are even prepared to go above and beyond that. To shrink back into wrong thinking is not only a backward step but adverse to the onward and upward style of right thinking. In the ever present reality of the world in which we live in it is important and imperative to always trya nd strice for the onward and upward way or style of thinking, never seetling for second best or accepting the choice below what is best for our lives and right way of thinking. Heaven holds the key to onward and upward thinking and it is this desire and goal should we choose to accept is our heavenly calling of doing and saying the right things. In fact we can even go further than that, to what is paradise which means destroying all the hellish thoughts and ways of thinking to lead and head us into this world of paradise thinking and thoughts. Where peace is eternal and everlasting, where heaven is real everyday as much as hellis cast out and our world is a paradise heaven everyday. Earth traps and niceties are choices we are making all the time and this is the reality of living. We must learn to become content with what we have uintil we are ready to take the next step into what is considered as Gods right calling. The treasures of heaven and the material psosessions of earth or not diametrically opposed altogether, but go hand in hand with right thinking and right decision making in what is the logical steps of the path of if we pursue the path of pacing ourselves and continueing in the right direction of a bit at a time, day by day working for a bit more and then when you have too much or enough, giving some away to others who need it and find it hard to find the right path of the road to correct thinking. Greed is never going to win and we need to be aware of giving to others at nearly all times. For the reality is that all we own belongs to someone else sometime down the track anyway, one way or another, at the right time and the right place we will pay others for what we want and what we have with what we have got. Seeing the need to give to others is also a priority for right thinking and the new right decision making for the purpose of kingdom harmony. Peace and plenty for all to be shared around and cherished by all who accept to make the right choices.Think clear and concise by being in the place to make right decisons of the onward and upward.

15 Keep Going Along

Keep going along the road and journey of life as the quick are soon to stray and the path is difficult and narrow. The task then is to stay on tracka nd follow the right way. Look for the signs and choose wisely as many mistakes come from snappy and sudden decisions that can knock you off your horse and leave you destitute and wound up off cource.Take time for the direction in which you take and follow the line and go the distance in order to claim the victory. Keep going along the straight and narrow as the road to hell is wide and as we know, few find the path to life. Once again heaven is the final destination found buy finding the treasure of eternal life. We must choose and path wsiely while here on earth though, listen to thiose who know what is right and learn to seek people like that who give you good advise and wise councilling and guidance. Sure we have to sit down and regroup to make sure that we have not strayed too far and that we are making sure and certain that we are staying on track of the path in the direction that we should be taking. Once we have regrouped and eecided that we are on the right path it is a matter of just to be keep going along and enjoying the fruits or our wise decision and the joy of the destination we are travelling to or have trevelled to. For when the road gets cold and darka nd windy we ahve to be sure that we are not easily mislead or waylayed in the wrong direction.To go the distance we simply have to stay on tracka nd keep going along the path to reach the goal and get there in the distance, The distance is what we are travelling and aiming for all the time and the short cuts that make life easier and really just the hard way of falling short of the goal of going the distance. So we have the case scenario of distance and direction for our aims and goals and plans, by recognising the right and wrong ways and paths to take. Go the distance and keep going along the path of life to reach your ultimate home in heaven where life is eternal and rust and moth don't let us see decay. Trust God and look at time as a spectrum of ligt where the health and happpiness of the person is found in the right place and direction of correct choices and good decisions. Keep going along the road of life and don't stop for anything or anyone except to meet a freind and get some rest. Look for God in all the right places and expect to find him wherever He is. 

16 Maintain Stability

Mainttain stability in your life by being wise and persitent in seeking the kingdom of God. Maitaining stability is about staying on track once you have found the correct path. it is about keeing and staying wll and beinga nd remaining healthy once you have optimized the health in your life. When problems and trioubles are minimized to a day by stay selection of critical decision making with minimal choices in situations as you have made a solid bed for you to lie in and you have found the treasures of heaven in which you seek. With these treasures of heaven use those talents wisely and productively in order to reinvest them in the kingdom of heaven. Maintaining stability is anout having control and power in your life to live wisely and help others with your well earned and accquired knowledge. It is about staying on the right path as we have said before but will strongly reiterate it again. Maintaining stability is about having your own little mountain in which to build your house upon there, where the floods or turmoil and strife in life are kept abey and out of reach. It is about consolidating on what collection you have and using your gifts by putting them back into place where they can be useful to other by what you do, say and read or write. Stay out of reach of danger and bad influences wherever possible. Use your time wisely and effectively to reinvest in life building ideas, where you can instill positive thoughts into other peoples lives. maintain stability by helping others as nothing is more productive than reinvestinga nd utilizing your skills and time to help others find th e right track to get along the road of life where they to can have and maintain stability. This can be financial security where you can offer advice on what to do with your money or just a state of well being where you as the doctor or pyscologist can help others to get well. Maintaining stability is also so very important as it is always still too easy to go off track again and find the wrong road instead of the road to life. Recognise the sign individually and double check with others to make sure that you are staying on track of the right path for maintaining stability. matain stability at all costs whether right or worng as a sound mind and right way are of thinking is always worthwhile and trustworthy and praiseworthy.

17 Creative Thinking

Creative thinking is about getting our persepctive right on life. It is about dreaming for better things and realizing them through prayer and committment. It is also about imagining what is best for our lives and the lives or others and it is about productive achievement through the visionary exercise of well thoughtout ideas. Creative thinking is for all who wisha nd desire to be successful and it is about working towards the manufacturing of productive resources. Creative thing can be challenging and stimulating and the effort is always worth the drift in thinking. Being creative is having and using the fruit of life to explain and expound on meaning through thinking and it is about obtaining achievement in the attaining of your goals. But first we must learn and dare to dream as new ideas are the product and result of creative thinking. Creative thinking is coming up with better ideas than what has been before, it is learning how to use your brain and understand your mind through thinking. Creative thinking is about knowledge of understanding what is best in life and finding out how or knowing to obtain that result. It is more than being as simple as one and one is two.Two and two are definitely four but we can't limit ourselves to mathematical equations we must invest in the unknown by dreaming with the use of creative thinking. If we want newer and better cars, machinery, planes, trains, ships and houses with state of the art appliances, we must use creative thinking to streamline our ideas and channel our thoughts into new and innovative conceptions and things. Cutting pictures out to fill a scrap book or sewing tapestries or painting a picture and drawing sketches or for photographic exhibitions, are all good examples of creative thinking. Don't be satisfied with the accepted all the time, stability is good but we must be creative to advance in life. Being proactive is monetarially sane, as when we are utilizing our time wisely we are being creative through being productive. If God can be ceate the earth in seven days, then we must use our weeks to be creative too, to recontribute back into society and reinvest in the world that we are given, this is the real and true nature of being creative and using our minds with the brains we were given to reinvest in our world to take it from the way it is to the way that it should be.

18 Actual Results

Attaining actual results is what counts and are all that really matters in the overall picture and scheme of things. When we are doing productive tasks and accoplishing things for a better world then we are attaining actual results. This is done by showing a concerted effort and taking a solid and right direction in our work to get through the day, to achieve actual results by the end of it. Actual results are the fruuit or all our efforts and the example of what can be done with a right mind and positive objectives being set. Like the pride that comes from finishing writing a book and the achievement of the accomplisment of fullfilling the goal to write the book, so is the completion the actual result of that accomplisment. Finishing a prized work or contributing back to society that has blessed you over the years and finding the redefinition of the change in reality through working accomplishments is the actual result of hard work and can be measured in the gift of reaching the of achievenment that task through dedicated committment and perserverance. It has indeed something to be proud of, in that the fruition of the fullfillment of the job was accomplished and fullfilled.The desired time of achieving the actual results of accomplishment is irrelevant, however the sooner the task is fullfilled the sooner you can get on with the next job. The task or job can not be put at jeopardy by time restraints or the need to rush to finish which can mean sloppy workmanship or a second rate job being finished. Once again we must persist and perservere in all tasks and objectives in order to meet the desired result of fullfilled accopmplisments to aquire the desired actual results of finishing the work. Money is only the means that justifies the end and is not the product of the work, though it can be used to measure quality and final actual results as an incentive, it is only a qualitaive value given for the work. Once we finalize the work or job we have an end to the aim, goal and plan and that is what is really the actual results of the effort. So now we have the aquired actual results of this effort.

CHAPTER 4 NO TURNING BACK

19 Don't Look Behind

Don't look behind, but keep looking ahead. The past is gone and the future is on the way and the present is definitely now here. The trouble is that we all get caught in the past trap, living in memories of days gone by and and dwelling on what has been, what we did wrong and what we should have done right. The present is now really here and let us live in the present with the future our goal at all times. Surely we can all leave the past behind, but we love to remember those better times of days gone by where we were happy and working progressively to get ahead, but far too often we were caught up in what we were doing or just enjoying the moment of all we had and wanted to keep and hang onto to cherish. They say, don't look back but keep your eyes fixed on the goal ahead and all that the future holds and has waiting for you. Planning is the esseence of good mangement and setting goals and objectives only helps in attaining desired goals for future enjoyment. The thing is that when we look back we are dwelling on the past and wishing that we had never left what we had behind, the good times seem to come and go so quickly and the more we try to saviour the moent the more we fall into the past trap of fogeting what we are doing now and what we want to do in the future. The past trap of turning back, digging uip those cherished memories that we all like to keep is just all too much trouble of days gone by. It is not like a history lesson when we remember the facts of story telling of great chanacters of the past that have gone down in history to live in heaven forever that we can look to and admire their great accomplisments. They have set the way for us here in the future generations and we can use their enginuity and leadership to help us learn and understand our own position today, but really we must leave the past behind and move intot he future of modern day living and all that they created is still left for us to finish and accomplish in another coming generation. Remeber that we can acclomplish so much more if we will only look forward. I still think to finanalize this page of the song. Memories From The Corner Of My Mind, Misty Water Coloured Memories Of The Way We Were. Let us wait for the song to come on the radio in the future because our past is gone and the present is here yet once again to take hold of and look into the future and greatfully grasp all the desired things that lay there waiting for us to behold. 

20 What Have You Got To Lose

We have all heard the saying What Have You Got To Lose, Have a Go You Mug, You Will Never Accomplish Anything If You Don't try. Come On Assuie Come On. All these catchy cleches just put us in the mood to do something. So what have you got to lose, if there is nothing ventured there is nothing gained. This is a bit like a motivation lesson for getting up and getting going. The trouble is once again that we all become complacent, timid and shy if we don't do anything. The thing is that we have got to initiate something, change oursevles into a better person, if we do nothing we will get absolutely nowhere. Though if we try and do something the whole thing becomes so much more rewarding. Go for a walk in the park, build something, make something, earn money, all of these things help us to come out of our shells, they encourage us to become a better person. So what have you got to lose, if you have still not tried to do anything new yet, then have a go. You will be so much more happier doing something than doing nothing at all. If all the explorers had sat on there hands and had not tried to find, lead, discover and search for a better place to live, they would have died in their tracks doing so for nothing and got nowhere but stayed at home all their life without seeiing the big picture of a whole new world, we have them to thank for what we have got. They all said what have we got to lose and started out to find a new land or kingdom. Never think that you are good for nothing and can't do anythink. Everyone has a gift of doing something and by saying to yourself What have you got to lose, you are challenging yourself to perform to a new and yet undiscovered level of amazement. You have just simply got to try to dfo something, to make worthwhile for living. Life is far too short to sit back on your hands all the time and let other people do everything for you. We all have something to contribute and we each and everyone one of us need to find out what that niche is and have a go. They say if you can't be good be careful, but being too timid is tragic and we all simply must try to do something. Have a go, What Have You Got To Lose?

21 One Step At A Time

Take one step at a time, are the old wise words of life. Like, look before you leap, just means that we can't do everything at once, but must slow down and make sure of ourselves as we go along our merry way on the road of life. Taking one step at a time is like, think before you act. These sayings just help us to live longer by staying out of trouble. When we take one step at a time, we have just slowed ourselves down to a walking pace instead of rushing into everything straight away and making a bungle of what we are trying to do. Running like a bull at a gate never got us anywhere, as usually we have to go back later and fix our mistakes, rather than taking one step at a time and making sure that we have done the job properly. As well one step at a time means just learning to pace ourselves in life to go the distance in that when we do we learn to be particular and thorough in what we are doing and what we are trying to accomplish. Walking pace, by taking one step at a time we are just making sure that we do the job properly, by slowing down and making sure that we are taking care all the way and all the time to go the distance and while making life better for ourselves in the process. Take in time to smell the roses, breathe easily instead of trying to do everything at once. Make sure that you are able to work at a level that you can cope with while you get on with the job of getting things done. One step at a time is about taking more time to be organised and methodical, working through a step by step procedure in a logical and formalized programmed way. Scheduling procedure is also a way to do things in a more right and correct manner, step by step this job is getting done through patience, perseverance and persistance. Really there is no need to rush doing anything, but with associated care and compliance, finally and eventually get through the work in order to get things done, step by step and just one step at a time.

22 Gradual Improvement

Creating a gradual improvement is often a difficult and arduos task, however nevertheless it is a mandetory requiring for modern advancement and day to day living. There is absolutely no point in taking a backward step and accepting reality is only the more reason to move on with a new idea or concept. We can't become complacent and sit back on our hands and say that the job is done, I will let it rest at that. But the need to ever press on and rise to the occasion or forward movement and the ever arising need to move onward and upward. These are all the basic fundamentals or making a gradual improvement, creating new goals and objectives, plans and fullfilling dreams and aiming to meet God given expectations and the higher calling that we as people are called to be. Human beings just can't sit back and let the world pass them by, but must ever press on and aim for the higher calling and objective that God has given us and indeed set before us to achieve. A gradual improvement can just be being more tidy and clean, more organised and thorough in doing the jobs and work waround the house. It can also be attaining higher education and fullfilling the calling of a higher level of occupation through improving skills and abilities in order to progress in the work world and company heirarchy. Gradual improvement can be a weight issue for losing excess kilos when you are obesse. Or puttung on some bulk mass and muscle at the gym for those who patiently and persistantly work out to attain a better physique and body shape. Self improvement can aslo be the gradual advancement in your financial position, living environment, type and class of house and area. Infact there are so many ways that we all each and individually can improve our lives for the betterment of all others around us. Gradual improvement is about advancing our world and our general living standards in each and every aspect of all us. It is about aiming for the top and slowly moving in that direction to attain the upmost position in society and what that means through contribution and work efforts to improve living environments. More to as we all pitch in together we are globally attasining the fullfillment of our God given gifts and dreams to the highest calling we possibly can as man and people, family commitments and manging for longetivity is only just another intricit part and major requirement for us all. Gradual improvement is working towrards the common goal of what is best for all mankind. It is not accepting second best but always aiming upward and onward, higher forever.

23 This Will Do Me For Now

Well after accepting a gradual improvement we can surely and simply say that will do me for now. When we have got what we want, we must learn to be content with our reality until we can gradually improve again. What I have has to be accepted as good enough for me now, but it also has to be challenged agian and again on a constant level and basis for living. There is no good going out steeling just to have a bit more. But waiting for the right work to come along, for the ideal job instead of just accepting anything or for that step in life when things start to go your way or are being dropped into your lap htrough constant patience and persistance with pursuring what is right in life and not accepting the wrong things, but always working towards the best posssible future as long as ever it takes. Sure not all things will be just dropeed into your lapa ndusually anything you want is worth working for and towards. But by accepting limitations and say that this will do me for now, we allow ourselves to regroup, reorganise and readjust to new environments and realities as the seasons change and life problems are given to us to deal with and handle those challenges. This will do me for now is saying that I have accomplised enough, that I have done enough for me and my stage of acceptance of what I have. It is the contentment that you are heading in the right direction and that you have accepted that I can't do anythong more for the moment. It is being realistic about material possessions and how much I can have and keep to myself without giving things away. It is about looking after and maintaining what I have and seeking to improve my position in life without continually always adding things to my possession. It is about learning to help others and be a positive contributer to society once you have grasp what is right in life and what to do, you can share that knowledge around and help oter people to get on tracka nd start to attain there goals as well. This will do me for now can also be like me writing now, just sitting back for a minute and regrouping my thought processes and thinking about what comes into my mind for a peaceful conclusion to this message. Well then all I can say now is do it, take some time out for yourself and learn by your dealings, what is best and right for you in any given situation and circumstance. Learn to be a human being, learn to live well and learn to take some time out for yourself just to say that will do me for now.

24 God Is Always Right

God is always right and for most of us, it is just a matter of coming to terms with that very idea and accepting that we can't all do it on our own. That we must learn too trust and accept that there is a higher power and calling on our lives and that is the higher power of God. God is always right and the sooner we learn to accept that the quicker we will advance in this world. The more certain we will be of fullfilling our own accomplisments in this world and the more better off we will be with accepting those other things around us that we cannot change, but must learn to accept in our own eyes as well as other peoples eyes and ultimately the eyes of God. If God left us to our own devices all the time, how miserable a people we all would be going our own self centered ways and living our own greedy and self dependant lives. God is always right and understanding that is the first step to stop going in the wrong direction. It is the correct step to take next when learn to hear that still quite voice inside us of God reassuring us that we are doing the right thing and staying on track for our higher calling in life. The sooner we learn to seek God and His righteousmness the sooner we start to live real and worthwhile lives, once again to our higher calling as human beings and individuals. If God was wrong and we were right, then we would be left to our own devises of stupidity and independance, doing what we like by ourselves all the time for our own personal self gain and reflection. However the reflection would be self defeteing and deflating as we could never live up to our own expectations of ourselves untill we can accept that Gods expections of us are perfectly designed and enhanced for our ultimate position in life, that is of a person reflecting on God rather than ourselves. Realizing this very reality is our highest calling in life, in that if God is right all the time and we foloow all we can do is improve our right situalion and relationship with God all the time if we learn to only trust God and all His provision of righteousness. We accept the grace, we do the work yes, but we allow God to lead and orchestrate the eternal environment and enhance our lives by a higher quality of living, in simple ways like breathing cleaner air, drinking fresher water and consuming higher grades and qualities of foods as well as clean living environments and clothes. These simple steps are what it takes to live more moral and higher lives. Purification of ethics and cleansing our soles to reach the highest calling in life and that is the righteousness of God, which we all one day if we follow, we will do in heaven. God Bless and aim upward.

CHAPTER 5 TIME IS MONEY

25 The First Priority

The first priority in sorting out the cobwebs of the duldrums of life is to to icite a bit of excitement into your life. As social desires suggests and implies we must seek a bit of entertainment to be exhilerated and interested in what we are doing and therefore put or return the zest to your life. To many reading a good book is often enough, dinners, dances, theatre, plays and operas are just a few of the eventful night objectives of the would be or budding scholarly seeking enteratinments. Picnics and walks along the beach, a row boat for two or just taking a drive up or down the coast wherever takes you fancy for that seafood meal at a little wayout fishing village of some kind or description in your travels.The first priority then is one of creating interest in life, financial matters and family affairs. Investing in the future through job orientation or property investments is also highly advisable in creating interest in your life. In other words, first we must have a reason to live. A purpose and a cause to aim for or succeed in. Money in itself has no real intrinisic value, but self worth comes from seeking to help others where by the fruits of our labour are eternally rewarded. The worth of your life is not always in the success of your bank account statement and that measure can be simply transient and limited or highly unpredictable. Sure a certain amount of money gives us confidence in comfortability, but there is no certain return and your next meal is only as good as you current job, which is also uncertain depending on how hard you work and how good at keeping your job by your personal efficiency is to your employer. Therefore we have our first priority nearly clearly defined, but further clarification is almost certainly objective in that our personal happiness is now being met by sizeable material posessions and a nice place to live and reside in. These personal satisfactions just help to seek to alleviate the pain of uncertainty as to where your base and foundation is permanently grounded for a place to sleep, rest and relax after your tiring days at work. So there you have it, the first priorities form living all wrapped upin aneat litte bundle for you to chew over and druel a bit. So all you have to remember now is that your first personal happiness is made in satisfying your hunger and appetite for living, not by setting unreal expectations or unlimited idealistic goals for personal pssoessions. 

26 A Management Principle

A management principle is honesty is the best policy, also treat others as you would have them treat you and make friends and be loyal to them. Show courtesy to other people as you would then expect them to reciprocate back to. In fact doing the right things in business is not just good sense, but the only way to stay alive and on top of your situation and predicerment. As well showing discression in all business dealings is the best and only way to survive the ups and downs of life. Live by your own standards of your own expectations and don't try and live up to those of others, sure see what is right that other people are doing, learn by that and take note for your own beneifit. Remember first you must be yourself and that by pacing yourself in life all the time, is the only best way to live and understand the real picture of your position in life. Then as we change and adapt to our new position through learning and making mistakes which we can only improve on if we take note and learn from those necessary errors, then we can take control of the bigger picture of advancemment and progessing in our life's different picture of reality. Try and see things as the actually are and don't exaggerate figures or cheat on your tax return. Remember our first priority is an honest representation of the truth of how things actually are and why we aim and seek to please, more than to make a profit. All good things come in time to those who are patient and not demanding, who are prepared to wait and work hard for what they want and are not rash and unreasonable in their expectations. All good things come from God and even with clever accounting methods and principles we are still at a loss and wonder how everything seems to come about and happen. Therefore we should take things by faith and trust in what we can see as right and achknowledge that a superior power is in control of all we don't seem to want to know or be able to understand. Try and be reasonable and shrewd in all your business dealings, don't let people take you for a ride, but address each situation and position on its own merrits and relationship to your personal position in life. Take for yourself what applies and is relevant to your own life and use any principles in moralistic ethics that are relevant to your given situation and position as well if you would like to enjoy.

27 Everything Has A Cost

It is well known that on earth nothing is free and that everything has a price. We simply have to pay for each individual possion we seek to aquire and attain of if we are caught steeling we will be fined or go to jail. In the endeavour to do this, pay for those things we desire or require, we must earn enough money through the dilligent pursual of each of our own work efforts. The requirement of self satisfaction to own enough goods and things, to feed our kids and ourselves by being able to put enough food on the table for alleviate starvation and hunger pains for empty stomachs, for sustanace and endurance to basicallly just have enough to live on and be happy and content. If everything was just dropped in our laps and we did not have to earn or attian the necessities we must have for survival, it would be a free world for all and that would lead to injustice inequality. Not that we are not all free if we do the right thing, in fact if we all slave away for our own self gain, we are really defeting the purpose of working towards a common good. But still we must all consider indivdually our daily needs and requirements, expenses and costs. There is really enough for al, but still everything has a cost each individual item is hand crafted or massed produced at a capacity of world extravegence. Therefore being able to contribute and pay for ourselves is a highly sort after desire and nicety that is a priveledge to earn and pay. This can be a limited or limitless amount, If we had to pay for everything as a whole conscenous each and individually it would be a mass crime, with greed as the surmountable crime of sufferring independance. If we budget correctly and and are content with our pay, then we can slowly and surely acquire enough for each day to day need and specifity and as the weeks and months progress still be able to manage and meet those requirements. Being influential and powerful is not necessarily the way to get what you want, being humble and kind is often a much more desireable and pleasant way to live. Satisfying our own pleasures is not reall the best way to deal with life, but iof you can work out what others need then you learn to suit you own purposes in a much more desired way and efficiency. Sure let us not forget that everything has a price, but also let us remember that we have to contribute to make things work, serve to earn, don't be a slave to stupidity, but each endeavour love others as much as you love yourself and above all put God first for the requirements of all your needs. God Bless.

28 Please Pay The Price

Please pay the price, was the question asked before the man was put to death for murder. Just like Christ hung on the cross to pay the price for all that others may go free and have the right to life that he was so tragically going to be denied, because he stood up to the leaders and authorities of His time. Only to rub salt into their wounds and rise from the dead to totally humiliate them. You see you simply can't put a good man down and God will have the victory no matter what we do, right or wrong, there must be fairness and justice for all. Please pay the price I was asked, but I don't have enough I said and he said go in peace, the price was paid for us all. So now as I consider my pay cheque and going into the next store for that food item or luxury thing that I need or simply must have, I must way the cost with what I have and can afford, be reasonable with my own expectations of myself and for myself. If Christ gave it all, then surely I can pay the price to satisfy one of my luxury needs or wants of daily necessary requirements. A gift is free and you must not be expected to pay for it, even though you may feel compelled to return the favour in some other way. To earn your own way and be able to pay for what you need is one of those daily delights of indulgence that give us self worth and a feeling of accompmplishment. Sure there is a price and a cost and usually associated with that is a whole lot of pain and pride that goes hand in hand with self requirements. Thee good news is that if you have got the money then you can pay for what ever you want, the bad news is if you have not got the money and cannot pay then you must get it from some other means and way within the legal means of the system and legalities or you end up in jail. In jail you will pay whether you like it or not with your own freedom in sufferring chaos, torment and hell, confined to your own personal cell. 

29 Thankyou Anyway

Thankyou anyway, thanks, but no thanks said the man to the postman at the letter box who was expecting another endless supply of bills. It seems that no matter how much we want things and how much we have that there is never enough to keep us happy and content and just one more thing is all we really desire and want. But that sort after need or necessity requirement seems to alude us half the time as to what it is that we really want or must have. You can give me whatever you like and I will thankyou for it forever, but whether I need it or require it is two completely different things. Thankyou anyway he said I will deal with whatever is is once I know what it is and I am able to acess how much use for it I have and whether I will hold onto it or give it to someone else. So it is with our gifts and talents if we use them then they become worthwhile. The trouble is we don't know that we have got until we try and start to use them or find out what they are. God gave us a whole lot of individual gifts and requiements. He asked us to maintain and uphold the law and He also expected us to do what we could with whatever we had been given. We were free to do what ever we wanted but not to step outside of the means of the law. Like when Adam and eve were in the garden and Eve was tempted by the devil and she ate the fruit of the tree of good and evil to have her eyes were opened so that she might understand the wisdom and knowledge of God. God had a set plan down through the ages to reveal each and every secret to mankind one at a time, but she wanted to see and have everything straight away and that was now. You see there is a reason why we must wait for things and why we must not just take whatever we want whenever we want it, because the God who had and still has a plan for our lives, to give us everything we want and need, though we must learn to pace ousrselves and act reasonably and responisibly within the means and rules or ways of the law. Our freedom is at stake and to gamble and bet on more money is surely short lived and regretable. I have learned that one the hard way, but God has been Good to be and extended his mercy and grace. Thankyou anyway, you can have whatever you want, I will learn to wait and be patient and the God that has everything install for me in His kingdom of heaven is worth all the wait and time and patience and work slowly and persistantly to see that, that is accopmplished. More Later. 

30 Maybe A Bit More

If only just a little bit more, was Olivers twists request in thast very movie and book. Please Sir I want some more of that terrible gruel to just fill the hungry stomache of that growing boy, left without parents as an orphan, no one cared about him or for him, his only hope was just a little bit more food to help be happy live a bit linger and stay alive. Isn't it such a terrible thought to not know where our next meal is coming from, whether we will ever eat again, have enough food to be contented fort he day or even be able to earn an income that will give us enough money to put food on the table and feed the family. As we go to work each day we wonder whether we be able to keep our jobs to feed our kids, pay the bills keep a roof over our heads. These little necessities we all too often take for granted as something that will always be, that we could not be so stupid as to lose our job or that we might upset the boss enough to sack us through incompetance or insubordination. How long can we take the pain, how long can we keep going and keep it up, how much work do I actually have to do to satisfy the boss. When your work is like getting blood out of a stone just to perfrom the next task, then you need to see a doctor and go onto some kind of Government support. Our pride won't let us do that but what can we do when things hurt so much through giving all you have got and not having anything left, when the petrol tank is empty and you have not got the money for another full tank and spent all that you have on wild living or other unsightly indulgences that just leave you high and dry. All we can do is get on our knees and repent to God in a humble prayer of confession and aks for forgiveness. Maybe just a little bit more, money, love, care, food, freindship, family. All these things we take for granted when we go out on a limb and think that we can do everything for ourself and that relationship with people or in a church organistaion where peopl are just begging to help someone in need. We have to humble ouselves and not allow our pride to take over, but must give in and submit to a higher authority God, Parents, Someone who will love and care for you and your real needs a church minister or paster, charity or Government organisation that will help. There are many around and we only have to seek, ask and accept help by achknowledging that this world is too big for anyone of us and we can't do it all on our own. Just a little bit more, Is it realy really that too so very hard? I ask you. Please accept just a little bit more, when it is all give and not take or visa versa, scream for help and swallow your pride, you will be glad you did to come into the safe arms of God. 

CHAPTER 6 PRINCIPLES OF GRATITUDE

31 Thank God For That

Well we all may well say, thank God for that, because nobody will care if God doesn't. God always cares whether we are aware of it or not. You can thankGod for this and thank God for that and infact you can or should thank God for everything that you can think of because he was here before us and made a way for us to go that a nieieve person would tend to ignore and shrug their shoulders at, but God gave so much and he still gives so much today that we can be thankful for. Sure we have to work for everything we get and that gives us a sense of self worth, but giving back a bit to what and where we come from is as important as staying in the present and living for every second. You can thank God for that to, that you have been given the gift of life, that you have a life to live and a place to live in and that you have food on the table and a job to earn money, it is not by our own merit that we inherit the kingdom of God, but by His grace of unmerired favour. I could keep on going in more wordy drawn out sentences of how great God is and how much He loves us, but most people tend to kind of take that for granted. God is always there when we need Him, He is always there waiting to answer our prayers when we ask Him for something, anmd he is even there when we are ignorant and pig headed, just expecting everything to be dropped in our lap while He goes on blessing us. The simple rule is that you get out of this world what you put into it, no more and no less, the facts are even, time catches up with us all at some stage and God is there just waiting for us to admit our fallibility and look to Him when we can't go on any more. Yes that will happen to all of us, you simply can't keep going all the time like a bull at a gate and not run into trouble and problems when you realize that you have hit the brick wall and that makes you feel down, out and desperate, That is when we must admit our liability for our own shortcomings and turn to God and say thanks for that, I could not have dome it without you, God you are the greatest. No one can just keep going on and on all the time without a mental breakdown of some kind, our bodies are simply not designed to be machines but must rest and recoperate when we have worked far too hard for far too long. Admit we need God, that is what God is crying out to all of us for, when we have gone our own way for far to long, loook to God and say, thanks for that, you were there all the time and just at the time that I needed you you looked down from heaven and took me back to be with yourself, when I was in a pit, you dragged me out, when I was going to hell you turned me around and rescued me from myself, God thanks for that I could not have done it without you, you are the greatest.

32 That's Always Left Up To God

That is always left up to God or at least I think it is. The ultimate question is usually, where did I go wrong? Like I did in writing this the first time, I deleted the whole thing. It does not take much to make a simple and stupid mistake, but the point of the thing is that we learn by our mistakes and don't do them again. It is always like that in learning and the best way to experience anything is to try and do it for yourself and if that means making a mistake, so be it, that is the way we learn by the error of our ways. It is not that God makes the mistake, but He allows us theat experience as long as we don't get into too much trouble to learn by what we are doing in first hand experience. So if everything is left up to God we don't learn anything for opurselves. Whats left up to God, I eman whats that that is left up to God, that is all the things that we can't do for ourselves. Everything in the too hard box or folder, that we simply put on a side burner or shelve until we can get our mind around it again and have a go and attempt all those things that were simply too hard, that's what I mean by having a go, we can't always put off for tomorrow what we can do today. Now is the time for action and now is the time to try or attempt do do all those things that we failed at or could not come to grips with those things in the terms of our reality. That is left up to God when we say we can't, we we admit our liabilities and own up to the fact that we can't do everything alone and that what was left up to God through prayer or otherwise, then we are falling short of all the glory that he has waiting for us at the moment. Sure there is some things that we can't do for ourselves right at the moment but then we say, that is left upt o God. Giod will take control and show us how to proceed at exactly the right time. It is usually a time thing rather than an ability requirement of monetarial restriction. God can do the impossible straight away and miracles take just a minute longer. You see it is a possibility problem and that we are only restricted by our own beliefs.That is left up to God, sure but we can try our best to see God gets all the facts and equipment he needs to work with for the best possible chance of things happening and falling into place ASAP. The key is that you don't leave things up to God if you can do them for yopurself, if there is no light at the end of the tunnel then look to God because he will be on the train that goes straight through and out the other side if we only have the faith and patience to see and ask him for whatever it is that we can't do for ourselves. 

33 It Is Nice To Say Thankyou

It is nice to say thankyou, it is nice to get something for free but without a show or sign of gratiude and welcome receptivity, we simply become ungrateful and greedy thinking that we can take everyone for granted with our own selfish expectations for ourselves where we think that we are too good for anybody else. Saying thankyou is the key to thoughtful behaviour and while it is never demanded by the giver, a thankyou is a welcome expectation and way of affirming the positive gifts that we are given out of love from somebody else. We could all sit down and make a list of all the good things that we have been given in life, food, time, a roof over our heads, clothes and even life itself is a gift that we all seem too often to take for granted, but while our parents made us, God is the giver of all life, trees, mountains, rivers, sea creatures, animals and plants. In fact God created everything and we are all just gouing along for the ride at His expenditure and free gift of love with His selfless gratiude of us as subjects in unconditional merit and favour for us to all enjoy His goodness and glory. You see we can't earn anything for ourselves but everything is at Gods disposal to distribute as he likes. You have heard it said that the Lord gives and the Lord taketh away. In fact everything belongs to The Good Lord for him to dish out and give at His demand or desposal. Love is the highest price you will ever have to pay and that is completely free to all who believe in His unmrerited favour and the only way you can win with God is by loving Him, you can put yopur money in the bin for somebody else to take and have when at the end of the day the earth has turned right around and you are still alive, that is all you really ever needed. God is in control, don't worry about that. The Devil is just a subject to God's terms and conditions like everybody else and we have to say no to him, don't give the Devil a foothold and knock Him back everytime he opens the door, you simply must say no to him and don't allow him in the door. When you hand everything over to God you give Him total control over your lives and that is a very rewarding experience indeed in which we have to show our gratitude and say thankyou very much for the offer, I accept it with everything I have got. It is nice to say thankyou and it is really just a very polite way of accepting what is best for our lives when we say thankyou to God for all he has done for us we are opening up the door to heaven with all the treasures there that God has to offer. Don't be selfish and say thankyou to God for everything and also say thankyou to anyone else who gives you anything else at all, it is simply the right thing and a very nice thing to do. 

34 Ask In The Right Way

When I say ask the right way I really mean verbally and not literarially, but it is polite to do both in both ways when you do or try. Asking the right way is simple, satisfying and self fullfilling when you get an answer of gratitudinal acceptance or comply. In fact it is the only way that you can really get what you want anytime, anyplace or anywhere. People can become rude and indignant when you simply assume you can have something without asking and to just take, grab and expect to recieve without asking the right way is kind of just expecting a major rejection. Sure go into a shop and pay cash for anything you like, don't feel threatened by the fact or intimidated that there was a lot of work gone on to get things right for you to buy and purchase. That may be a facious or ambigous way of putting it but infatc far to often we all simple expect that we can have anything we like at any time if we just put the cash on the table. Life is about manners and dignity as well as being abrupt and rude in self expectations. We should always ask the right way before we simply just take, grab and walk away with our monetarial expectations of what we are entitled to purchase. So next time you want tio buy a new car, give God some time and credit for finding you the right one. Sure your choice is important but think of all the work that went on in making the car or the preloved owner gave to his prize posession. Ask in the right way and don't be afraid to go through God for your cause. In fact it is never to rude and expectant to ask God for anything and as long as it has hHis merited favour you can equally expect to get it. Sure if we buy take away we pay cash first but a simple prayer for the hands that prepared it is not too much to ask, I mean really. say please and thankyou in all your transactions whether it is just for a ride on the bus or a lift down the street to do your shopping. Gratitude and favour for acceptance are equally important in having attatining or owning something that you would like to have and keep as a cherished possession or thning to keep untill your dying day and to look after it with the equal respect of buying it. Remember nothing ever cost none nothing and everything has a price and so the least we can do is pay the difference for whatever it is that takes uour fancy through manners, gratitude and courtesy. Ask the right way, Say please can I have that and then when it is yours say thankyou very much for the gift, I gratefully accept your offer to buy.

35How To Get What You Want

So how do you get what you want? That is a fine question to ask when most of us most of the time think that very same thing. Of cource you have to ook at motives and applications as well in getting what you want and why. A lot of the time the motivation is greed so that in order for you to have everything you want you have to lie, cheat and steel for it. But that is not the case in lfe as we shall see. All good things come to those who wait and go about aquiring things at the right time, style fashion and manner. Manners are one way of showing appreciation for what we want or desire and asking with a please on the question, is usually the best way rather than snatch and grab. Of cource if things looka nd get a little difficult you could always try prayer as God just sits there in heaven waiting for His people to ask Him for what they want so that He can bless them immeasureably. Though it may not always come right when you expect it or be exactly what you requested but you can be sure that you will be more than happy and satisfied with Gods gifts as He has a bigger and more imaginable heart then us.The thing is that we must learn to be patient in life and not to expect all things to come to us at once.The rule is usually the longer you wait and the more you deny yourself for something, the happier you will be when you get whatever it is you want. If everyhting was simply dropped into our laps all the time we would be miserable wicked wretches that are spoilt rotton to the core, with no consideration for the requirements of other peoples wishes and needs. Greed by wanting things for ourself all the time breeds corruption, self centreness and rottenenss to the core. We should learn to respect other peoples needs first in order for us to get what we want for ourselves later. Jesus said, Seek ye first the kingdom of God and all these things will be added unto you. So it is not so much as a money factor but a time factor and the longer we wait as I have said the happier we will be in God's good time and not ours. Sure if you have the money you can just go out and buy it now, but the best things come in Gods time and using His resources. 

36 Please Be Yourself

Notice that I have said please be yourself and not please yourself all the time. Know who we are as individual people and what we really need in life and require, rather than getting what we want all the time in any fashion or order is and are two completely different things. ":Please be yourself" is like knowing your God given gifts and using them for His glory. When we start to search for the real us, the person who knows what they are like and what they really want, is the real us. It is not until then that we learn to understand who we really are in the big picture and scheme of things by understanding our individual idiosyncrisis.Getting Gods perespective for our lives is far more important than satisfying short term individual whims and fancies that just drift in and out the door or window in any fashion, shape or form. Being your self or which is the same as understanding yourself is the way to build eternal treasures in the kingdom of God, because we seek Gods guidance and perspective first, because He has what is best for our hearts and not our head in mind. He can see further down the road than we can, as we have to watch the car ahead. When we get home and do some reading, then we can get God's perspective on how to live our lives for the long term. Please understand how to be yourself or would you like to try to please see how people are capable of being themself, is a bit like a self reflecting mirror, rather that when we see the type of people that we would like to be we can emmulate them to help us fashion our own lives to be more like them. The real hard core way to be yourself is to study God's word and emmulate Him, you can't go wrong with that. The character of God is far more satisfying and appealing than anyone else on earth. The world we live in has a lot to offer and we are all guilty of falling into that trap but we must consdier other people first and look to them and treat them as we would want to be treated by them to ourselves. We must be partakers of being ourselves, but it is not till we learn to contribute back that we can expect to take anything out of the world from that in which we live in. I hope that you might have been able to learn a little of that lesson of being yourself by emmulating the good in others and unltimately Gods character.
