The way we in self-speak can help us Self-Develop into a Speaker or a Failure

Some BS Facts About Self-Development
Everyone Thinks Are True

Word count 428

For example, The way we in self-speak can help us Self-Develop into a Speaker or a Failure
  • Self-Speech plays a huge role in our self-image.
  • Self-image plays a huge role in our self-confidence.
  • Self-confidence plays a huge role in our ability to succeed in the various endeavours we decide to pursue in our life.
The way we self-speak can help Self-Development into a Speaker or a Failure!While some may say that this is BS !  How can Self-Development happen with Self-Speak or Self-Speech?
There is a real story about an all-star baseball player, who once decided to visit a prison to inspire inmates to self-develop themselves.  He shared a story of his father who always encouraged him as a little boy.  His dad always encouraged him by saying, “son, if you keep on hitting the ball like that, you’ll end up in the Biggest League one day.”  Sure enough, he ended up as an all-star in the Biggest Baseball League.
A prisoner stood up and said, “hey, my dad told me said somewhat similar when I was a kid. Every time I did something my dad disliked, he looked at me and said, ‘son, if you keep on mis-behaving like this, you’ll end up in prison one day. Sure enough, I ended up in prison."
90% of male prisoners were maltreated as dirt by own parents as little kids. They  were spoken to like they were prisoners WAY before they ended up in prisons.  Now, don't come to conclusion that our parents determine the future for us in advance.  We have ability to respond to our circumstances, and we choose. it would help immensely and much easier if we had solid foundation.
The take-away from the story is simple: the way we SPEAK to ourselves plays a massive role in the way we PERCEIVE us. The way we perceive ourselves plays a massive role in how CONFIDENT we are. Our self-confidence determines whether we decide to take on challenges and pursue success in the face of adversity, or whether we decide to live below our highest potential. Do not allow our self to do this.
·       Encourage ourselves. Love ourselves.
·       We cannot expect things to change in our life unless we change.
·       For things to change. we must change.
·       Our self-speak plays a huge role in our self-image.
·       Our self-image plays a huge role in our self-confidence.
·       Our self-confidence plays a huge role in our ability to succeed in the various endeavours you decide to pursue in our life.

Arrogant souls earwig.
Unbelievers walk.

Real crackpots regard.
Empty eons shout.
Victorian unbelievers shine.
Obscure kinglets shine.
Insane enslavers glimmer.
Restless cuckoos shine.

For My Gorgeous Waterfall

A Love Poem by jay

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Palaces are gorgeous,
And so are you.

Orchids are white,
Ghost ones are rare,
The face is straight,
And so is your hair.

Magnolia grows,
With buds like eggs,
Glasses are thick,
And so are your legs.

Sunflowers reach,
Up to the skies,
Your sun is dazzling,
And so are your eyes.

Foxgloves in hedges,
Surround the farms,
My body is slender,
And so are your arms.

Daisies are pretty,
Daffies have style,
A beauty is dazzling,
And so is your smile.

A waterfall is beautiful,
Just like you.

Today's Inspirational Quote:

"Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you have never been. Sleep out alone under the stars. Learn how to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of not coming back. Say no when you don't want to do something. Say yes if your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you're doing here. Believe in kissing."

The divine love consumes all our limited desires; but this "burning" [in love] should be smokeless. Kabir puts this in one line: "Lift the veil of seven colors!" He does not say "remove" the curtain, but uses the word khole [lift, open].
In fact, this veil is so subtle that even the finest and highest thought cannot pierce or tear it. This veil has seven layers and seven knots. The seven layers are of different colors, and of seven kinds of sanskaras. These impressions are of the phenomenal illusory life. To make it more clear; this world that we see, hear and experience through the senses is an illusion, and is based on seven illusory desires.
On these seven desires is based the entire working of the gross life, and that is why both "descent" and "ascent" of the soul is in seven stages.
The real seat of the Brahma is in the head, and so you find seven doors to these illusions — two eyes, two ears, two nostrils and one mouth. When an advanced soul enters the Path with the inner eye open, he is said to "open" the first knot. And when the first knot is open, one layer out of the seven drops down, corresponding to the mouth. When the first knot is opened, the pilgrim is said to have crushed one desire and to have entered the first plane.
When the second knot is opened, corresponding to the right nostril, the second layer falls down, and the pilgrim is said to have entered the second plane. Here he sees wonderful things. Although all these things are illusory, if he gets lost in them he is gone! The third knot is the left nostril. Here the pilgrim sees more enchantments. He can now read the thoughts of all. After this third knot, the pilgrim enters what is called by Jesus the dark, spiritual night of the soul.
The fourth and fifth knots are opened simultaneously, corresponding to the right and left ears. These desires are crushed, and the pilgrim enters the fourth plane. Now he becomes all powerful. He can even raise the dead, and here it is possible that he can fall to the lowest depth. He falls if he misuses his powers.
If he resists the temptation of using his powers, then he opens the sixth and seventh knots simultaneously, corresponding to the two eyes, and crushes the sixth and seventh types of desires. He has entered the fifth plane now. But the veil is still there and he cannot see God. Only God's grace or the Master's help can throw away or tear this veil.
Then the pilgrim enters the sixth plane, which is represented by the middle of the forehead, that is, the third eye. Now he sees God face-to-face everywhere.
Very few can enter the seventh plane, represented by the top of the head. Here one becomes God. But this can be done only with the Master's help. Only rare ones get down from the top of the head to the heart. The Master can, in the twinkling of an eye or even quicker, remove all these veils and everything at once, because all is illusory.
This, in the end, means that only God is real and all else is an illusion. We are all permanently lodged in this, our Beloved God. So we are all one.
