Don't Work If You Don't Get Paid.


(From my book of Aphorisms- 'Thoughts To Make You Think' By Helen Leigh - http://thoughtstomakeyouthink.doomby.com  - Chapter One - Personal Development)





Don't Work If You Don't Get Paid.

(energy, emotions, people, situations)


WATCH YOUR THOUGHTS - NO THOUGHTS, NO PROBLEMS:


From my book of Aphorisms- 'Thoughts To Make You Think' By Helen Leigh - http://thoughtstomakeyouthink.doomby.com  - Chapter One - Personal Development)


 


As a discipline, ask yourself if thinking what you are thinking; giving you a Positive (giving you energy, going somewhere) or a Negative (draining your energy, going no where)

We exist beyond our thoughts or 'Status' - : Who am I? (unanswerable fear question)

We are energy; feeling...

When you were a baby, you didn't know who you were, yet you existed; and experiencing life...

In an Orgasm, do you care who you are or even that you have a body?..:) .... (pleasure)

You exist and continue to be Who You Are without having to tell yourself or anyone else who you are; and so you are Energy, … Because you are energy, you are directed by FEELING, And You will be led by where ever you Tell yourself to go.

You have the 'freedom' to Think.. This freedom is given to you, so direct it to love, tell yourself loving things, happy things, good things and make sure you direct yourself away from following dead paths or fear paths that lead you no where..

Why tell yourself you are shit at something? Why know this? Why tell yourself you got something wrong, said something wrong or that you can't do something, why even bring it up?

Aren't you worth more than giving yourself pain??

If you did something to hurt someone or did something that had a negative affect on you, you don't have to tell yourself not to do it again.. unless you are mentally disabled in some way..:).. I mean; you don't touch the hot element on the stove every day to remind yourself that it will burn your finger, and then burn your finger over and over do you??!.. So, You don't have to replay a bad 'incident over and over to 'learn', or to 'Remember'; not to hurt another, not to make yourself look bad ,not to get tricked the next time, or to plot revenge when it happens again.. You know it was bad, you Felt it and you also know by your FEELINGS that you Don't want that.. You don't have to write things down or map them out, that is why we have experiences.. You learn then move on, or repeat several times and then move on.. (generally in my case :) )

The less you talk, both inward and outwardly, the more you gain, as it isn't what you say that directs your life, it is how you feel; how you feel about yourself, others, life.. Feelings are an extension of yourself and they extend you outward too. You didn't think yourself into existence (i.e.: Mathematically thought constructed your body, hair, skin, nationality with chemical compound ratios and measurements) you Dreamed yourself in, felt yourself in and everything you have been given hasn't been the product of your controlled mind and planning, you can't control others, their decisions or what happens next, but it has been your 'Connection' to things, how you felt, how you reached out, and what was 'Drawn' to you.... That is how you decide what to do next, and where you steer your life, it comes from inspiration... joy... feeling. That is what drives you....
In fact.... You don't have to think at all, or know yourself or know anything to Exist and be magnificent, so don't think yourself out of it.. :)


IGNORING:


From my book of Aphorisms- 'Thoughts To Make You Think' By Helen Leigh - http://thoughtstomakeyouthink.doomby.com  - Chapter One - Personal Development)







If you ignore it, it doesn't go away, it just leaves more work for those who aren't ignoring.






POEM: 'Reflecting Horizons' By Helen Leigh




In the journey you ride alone,
I am the mist that follows behind.
When the world gets really loud,
I'll be the quiet in your mind.
When your vibrant like a star,
I'll be watching with a smile,
You can sit in peace with me,
And you can rest for awhile.

I will be the rock you lay,
Your foundation down,
You can build your home on me,
And I will be your ground.
You can feel safe to know,
When your shining like the Sun,
I will cherish who you are,
In 'Reflecting Horizons'.

For all the times you sacrificed,
And the silent tears you shed,
For the conditional love,
That left you for dead.
I will always be listening,
With an unconditional heart,
I will protect you like the little ones,
To walk your glory path.

You can lay your foundation,
Down upon me,
You can build a solid home,
And your ground I will be,
You can feel safe to know,
When your shining like the Sun,
I will always be here,
'Reflecting Horizons'.

POEM: "The Girl With The Raven Hair'. By Helen Leigh



Moonlight lit the cold night air,
And showed the face of true despair,
Was such a girl embodied there,
The girl with the Raven hair.

She sat upon the seat and wept,
While the winds they blew for her bereft,
And revealed that there was nothing left,
The girl with the Sparrow breast.

With tear filled eyes soaked hopeless face,
She looked up from the deep disgrace,
And begged to change with nights embrace,
The girl with the Robins gaze.

At once the chill had left the air,
Clouds parted way and a Star appeared,
To let her know that someone's there,
For the girl with the Raven hair.

POEM: THE FINGERS OF GOD BY HELEN LEIGH





And there I lay, my back touching the Earth,

And I looked up, and Three Huge Trees were before me,

Like the three fingers of God,

Touching the Earth, Touching my Being...

And the Awesomeness of these Finger Trees,

Humbled me in their Magnificence,

As they shook and hissed with the dancing breeze.

GROW UP AND STOP USING PEOPLE:


(From my book of Aphorisms- 'Thoughts To Make You Think' By Helen Leigh - http://thoughtstomakeyouthink.doomby.com  - Chapter One - Personal Development)





A sign of Maturity is sharing your best with others, and thinking of others, it is, having your own life direction27, and not just taking what people give you - (like they are nothing), and then demanding every thing goes your way, including from life as well as from others.

You can't demand people say what you want, do what you want, react how you want.. Or you have the right to hate them or give them pain, or tantrum in negative anger which you think is fine to give to others because your life sucks so much it is justified..?.... How Immature, irresponsible and compassion-less??

This applies to your life also..

It is childish to get angry (have a tantrum) Cry, or become Stubborn if things aren't going your way.

Maturity lends us the advantage to listen and feel beyond our limitations it allows us to see what we are trying to achieve and who we are trying to be and so whatever is disturbing us in the present, ie: an awful job, situation or person, that this only temporary to what is going to happen, and we may even see that these problems are necessary for us to address our own hidden darkness, and flaws, and for this to be exposed into the light so that we can achieve even greater than what we are envisioning.

It is immature to make people or situations, responsible for your feelings and life, and you can't hide behind people and hold them to ransom to change your life, or guilt them into looking after you or only your interests..

Only Children 'Need' Mummy's and Daddy's to put their own feelings aside and have it be all about YOU and what you want regardless of whether other people have feelings...

Mature adults have their own life, they SHARE feelings, they don't need someone to be happy or their not happy, (“I am happy if you are happy, I am sad if you are sad”).... As a mature adult you Choose what emotion you want to give out and it is never a Negative, Self Indulgent one.

Maturity allows you realise that life is a series of letting go, not holding on, and the more you can let go, (of conditions) the more love you have.

GETTING DOWN WITH REAITY:


(From my book of Aphorisms- 'Thoughts To Make You Think' By Helen Leigh - http://thoughtstomakeyouthink.doomby.com  - Chapter One - Personal Development)





You can't escape Cause and Affect, and YOU have to do what needs changing..

You can't Pray and think that this will somehow over-ride cause and affect, because you don't live in a fantasy, but in a causal affecting place - 'Reality'...

You can pray that your neighbours turn their loud music down at 1am and then get angry at God for not hearing your prayers, you can pray for your partner or child to get well and then get angry at karma for not giving you justice; since you always give to people and do the right thing.

Nothing will Change unless you take Action.

And although I do believe there is an 'Element Energy' that provides source elements of love, intuition, projection, …. whatever you name this element, (ie: God); this is not however a physical manifestation of a 'Magic Genie' in the clouds that can somehow grant you what you ask for.. It is a childish concept to shirk your own responsibilities for a wish, prayer or a hope (like praying to Santa Clause and then deciding you hate life when he doesn't give you what you want.. An immature concept and a 'Victimised' one.)

Shit indeed does happen, because we do live on a planet with gravity, you can fall down, and other people can trip you, they can also not tell you to avoid the hole that you are about to walk in because they are too busy looking up at the sky and praying for God to fill in the hole instead of doing the work and filling in the hole themselves! (are you feeling this parable?!)

But, what truly matters is how you decide to get up once your in the hole.. Okay, so prayer and being a good person doesn't work, then what does? ….

Having faith in yourself does, Believing that you will find a way and Actioning it, Holding on to that source Element inside you that does guide your intuition like a compass,Knowing how to use this gravity to your advantage....What is low always has the best vantage point to see how to navigate the way ahead, just like in a fire, if you aren't up amongst the smoke, and confusion, but dropped Low, the clearer the air is and the more you can see.

The Reality is that if you ignore someone(s) that is giving to you, or not crediting them, then they will stop giving to you.
If you don't appreciate what you have, it isn't that God 'The Magic Genie' will take it away or that Karma will deal with you, it is that you will simply give your things away or things will get lost or get thrown out and you won't notice, until one day you will feel like you want some love or nostalgia and look around and find you have nothing...

The greater lesson is more in how you respond to life within yourself and what you are willing to Action....
The more you can cultivate the goodness inside yourself, the more you can stop thinking negatively, the more you can cherish what you have and those that do love you or give to you that are around you, Then the more strength you will have to be able to master the gravity of Cause and Affect and navigate through life's fires.


POEMS: BLISS 1 & 2 BY HELEN LEIGH

(from - Life and Lessons Poetry By Helen Leigh)



'Bliss'

 
Sun Warmed Cheeks
Tasting Salty Lips
Listening to the Ocean
Smelling Sun Tan Lotion
Soft Sand
Under Both Hands
Stinging Eyes
Salty and Tired
A Sigh
A Smile
Sleep For Awhile



'Bliss 2'

Looking up at the clear blue sky
The fragrant scent of Daisy
Grass
Earth
Scratchy towel under bare skinned body
The buzz of a passing Bee
A tickle on your knee
you look
A Fly
Shake it off
Close back your eyes
A sigh
A smile
Sleep for Awhile

POEM : 'LIFE IS GOOD' BY HELEN LEIGH

(from - Life and Lessons Poetry By Helen Leigh)





No matter how bad your life is
No Money, No Home
Alone
20 cents left on your cell phone
If you can dance in the shower
Using the soap as a microphone
Singing at the top of your lungs splashing for an hour
Then, Life is Good.

No matter how bleak your life looks
No Health, No Rest
Stressed
Wondering what misfortune will happen next

If you can dance in the Kitchen
Using the Cupboard door as a dance partner
Singing at the top of your lungs
Serenading the Vege-Mix Tin

Then Life is Good.

If you can sing to your Cats
Dance around in your Flat
Putting on the biggest show
Using the furniture as props for your Acts

Then you know....

Life is good.

FUTURE SELF:


(From my book of Aphorisms- 'Thoughts To Make You Think' By Helen Leigh - http://thoughtstomakeyouthink.doomby.com  - Chapter One - Personal Development)




If you truly want to make changes to yourself, you have to hold a future projection of who you want to be. Keep holding this projection; the feelings you want, the attitude you want, the way you want to be. Let those around you that don't like this fall away and keep holding your projection.

'It is said that one day the Buddha was walking through a village. A very angry and rude young man came up and began insulting him. “You have no right teaching others,” he shouted. “You are as stupid as everyone else. You are nothing but a fake!”

The Buddha was not upset by these insults. Instead he asked the young man, “Tell me, if you buy a gift for someone, and that person does not take it, to whom does the gift belong?”

The young man was surprised to be asked such a strange question and answered, “It would belong to me, because I bought the gift.”

The Buddha smiled and said, “That is correct. And it is exactly the same with your anger. If you become angry with me and I do not get insulted, then the anger falls back on you. You are then the only one who becomes unhappy, not me. All you have done is hurt yourself.”








GETTING REAL:


(From my book of Aphorisms- 'Thoughts To Make You Think' By Helen Leigh - http://thoughtstomakeyouthink.doomby.com  - Chapter One - Personal Development)


 


Your Anger is valid, Your middle finger is valid...
People DO and WILL use your niceness...
People DO and WILL use you and your Openess for their gain.
People Are and Will harm things, create terrible situations, create suffering, or Ignore.

Create yourself and your World how you want, but don't be ignorant.
