Limiting Concepts

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

 

In the readiness stage of Self Discovery, what stands most in the way of setting goals is your concept of yourself. This is why it is so important to have an open mind when you set goals. I have heard people say over and over things like: “I’m a very good organizer, but I’m not at all creative.” Or: “I think I’m a pretty good mechanic, but I could never be a computer programmer.” These comments demonstrate what I mean by holding a full cup. These people have sealed their own fate with their own limited belief. In the first comment, we not only have a statement that is self limiting, but one that is also outright contradictory. The ability to bring organization into a state of confusion is not the opposite of creativity. Organizing is a highly creative process. How often we limit ourselves by how we define concepts!

Realistic Expectations Turn into Goals

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

Realistic Expectations Turn into Goals

When you are willing to have reasonable expectations, setting goals is the next logical step to take. If you are willing to be receptive and open minded, and have high expectations, you won’t be afraid to set a goal, even if it presently seems out of reach.

Anticipate Success

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

Somehow, as time goes by, we become impressed with the accomplishments of others, and conclude that we cannot express them ourselves. We usually find pretty good excuses why we can’t, and continue to keep ourselves limited. “He Can Do, She Can Do, Why Not Me?” In this saying is encouragement to develop the attitude of always anticipating success. The arrow of this attitude takes you in the direction of accomplishment.

Maintain an Attitude of Anticipating Success

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

Maintain an Attitude of Anticipating Success

Since you co-create with the energy of thought and feeling, I say have a large empty cup! Have unlimited thought about what you can accomplish. Have unlimited expectations for yourself.

Of course, when I say unlimited, I don’t mean unreasonable. The fact is, your Silent Master will not give you unreasonable desires, but will give you your true desires. When I say that you should have unlimited expectations, I mean don’t let anything limit the possibility of making your true desires come to life.

Shower Meditation

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

 

When you do this shower meditation to eliminate negative thoughts and feelings, you are taking action to form an empty cup attitude. Remember, however, that to become empty does not mean you become a void. In fact, the process of sacrificing your negative traits is best carried out through positive affirmation, not through negation. Instead of saying, “I am not sad,” you say, “I am full of natural joy belonging to the consciousness of my Silent Master.” Your empty cup will be filled by your positive declarations about your true self.

Shower Meditation

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

Imagine that you’re on a tropical island, and that your shower is actually a rushing waterfall surrounded by beautiful tropical flowers and birds. Gentle winds are blowing a clear blue sky shows above. The falling water is clean, clear, sparkling with energy. As you stand there, the water flowing down on your body, you feel yourself open to receive the fresh, new energy in the water. Using your soap, you feel the falling water wash away your anxiety, your tension, your worries, your regrets, your frustrations. You feel the cleansing action washing away everything that clouds you or hurts you or limits you. You feel yourself becoming more and more free, more relaxed, more happy, more peaceful the soap and sparkling water are washing away all your negativity. Let yourself believe the water and soap actually can do that for you. When the water goes down the drain, let yourself imagine that the ill will, the hostility, the resentment, the anger, the stubbornness, the laziness, the jealousy, whatever, goes well away from you forever.

Do the same thing when you brush your teeth. As you rinse your mouth, let the water wash away the harsh words, the mistaken words, the words you may regret. When you wash your hair, let the shampoo wash away all the feelings and attitudes you’ve taken on which don’t come from your true self, and cleanse all the actions you took that are now “on your head.” What do you want to get “out of your hair?” As you dry yourself with the towel, think of your body and mind as now being new. This clean, new body is like a new sun rising on a new day. Yesterday is washed away.

Do This Everyday

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

 

You may not feel uninhibited enough to do something like a freedom dance in your own house. But here’s something you can do every day to help create and maintain your empty cup: take a shower!  Even if you don’t have time to meditate, your shower can be a time for some valuable work for yourself. Since showering is an activity you usually do mindlessly, try doing it with thought and some enjoyable visualization.

Maintain a Receptive Attitude

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:


Maintain a Receptive Attitude

 

One of the activities in the Self-Discovery Weekends is the Freedom Dance. In this exercise, I ask students to abandon themselves in joyful free form movement around a fire for a symbolic shedding of the past. Because many people are unnecessarily critical (self-conscious) of themselves, this dance is designed to foster the receptive attitude needed to pursue true Self Discovery.

As mentioned in Chapter One, the willingness to be open and receptive to a new concept of yourself and a new life is an attitude that I call the empty cup. If you think you already know everything, if you think you already know yourself in total, your cup is already full and cannot hold anything new. This readiness being open and receptive to a new direction is a quality you obviously need every day, not just once in your life when you decide to pursue your true self.

Attitudes Are Important

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

Attitudes are important at the start of your Self Discovery process because they help determine the quality of your manifestations. Positive attitudes ensure that your will and motivation remain pure and powerful so that you create constructive forms in your life, forms which promote progress and acceleration and reflect the love, peace, and harmony of your true self.

Attitude

Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:

ATTITUDE

We have seen how your will power is like an engine that drives you along your path and how motivation is like the fuel feeding the engine; think of attitude as that which determines the quality of the fuel.

 

Positive attitudes are like high energy fuel, such as high octane gas. Negative attitudes are like impure gasoline. When you put this kind of gasoline into your car, you will undoubtedly see trouble in the engine before long. Just so, negative attitudes create obstruction and conflict in your life.
