Follow the Light That Is Within You

Follow the Light That Is Within You

Self discovery is the discovery of the inner lighted pathway and trusting your footsteps along the way.

Beauty of an opened flower

Follow the Light That Is Within You

As a child, after making many and vigorous attempts to walk unaided, at last succeeds, after numerous falls, in accomplishing this, so you must enter the way of power by first attempting to stand alone.

Break away from the tyranny of custom, tradition, conventionality, and the opinions of others, until you succeed in walking lonely and erect among honorable people. Rely upon your own inner judgment; be true to your own conscience; follow the Light that is within you; all outward lights are so many bright bulbs without lighting their own path in the darkness.

There will be those who will tell you that you are foolish; that your judgment is faulty; that your conscience is all wrong, and that the Light within you is darkness; but do not listen to the outside white noise. If what they say is true the sooner you, as a searcher for wisdom, find it out the better, and you can only make the discovery by bringing your powers to the test.

Therefore, pursue your course bravely. Your inner Light is your own, and to follow it is to be honorable; to follow the bright blinding Light of another is to be a slave. You will have many falls, will suffer many wounds, will endure many buffetings for a time, but press on in faith, believing that sure and certain victory lies ahead.

Search for a rock, a principle, and having found it cling to it; get it under your feet and stand erect upon it, until at last, immovably fixed upon it, you succeed in defying the fury of the waves and storms of selfishness.

How to be mentally well with five everyday approaches to good mental health

Mental chaos is anything keeps you from thinking organized thoughts. Feeling overwhelmed is a cause of mental clutter which affects your well being, here’s how to clear your mind

Both physical and mental clutter are equal culprits to getting you stuck in the middle of all your daily responsibilities. Physical clutter is when you can’t find your keys as you screech out the front door in the morning, trip over a pile of laundry or find yourself buried under a mountain of paper, while mental clutter includes the myriad of thoughts, ideas, promises, unfinished tasks, guilt, blame and the like that swim around your brain tricking you into inaction. No matter how you look at it, mental clutter affects your well-being. In acute cases, it can affect you physically, literally making you ill. At minimum, it is a source of stress and frustration.

Use a notebook for all your to do lists, thoughts and notes. Take time to search for the perfect notebook for you, choose the one you like the best and carry it everywhere you go.

Tie up the loose ends
If you have many things on your list with many of them started but not completed, set deadlines, delegate or move on to number 3 if the value of completing the task is not motivating enough to get you going.

Say no 
Regardless if it is a system or a friendship, if it’s toxic, it’s time for a change.

Schedule time to think
So much time is wasted on tasks that are of low value or no value, leaving you with little or no time for the things that are important. Make time daily and weekly to prioritize and plan.

If you are struggling to move forward mentally, then try focusing first on moving forward physically. Studies show that taking a short break after every 20-45 minutes of input increases your productivity. Find time to exercise as this also helps clear the mind and improves your physical well-being at the same time.
