Slow down, you move too fast, you got to make the morning last. Simon & Garfunkel

A very clear message, but how many people will?

We live in an instantaneous world, we can eat fast food, drive fast cars, we are encouraged to be in the fast track and pay extra not to queue.  How many times have you seen a curved footpath and a dirt track walked in where people have cutoff the corner?  I often wonder what they managed to do with the few seconds of life that action has saved them.  We get agitated when we have to queue or wait and feel like we are waisting time, we think could be packing even more into our already busy lives.

Is that good?  Could we get more from life by doing less?  Could we learn to appreciate the things we have, rather than covet the things we don’t.  If we buy less, will we have more time to spend.  We could learn to live, rather than be alive.

The end of the song is a brilliant mantra – Life, I love you.  All is groovy.

That’s something we should all be saying.


Whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right. Henry Ford

The Law of Attraction states that your thoughts are granted, if you think of something you don’t want to happen, chances are it will because that is where your focus is.  It is a true advocate of positive thinking.

So, how can we relate that to logic for the sceptics among us?

It is widely respected that a positive mental attitude (PMA) will only do good, doctors agree that it will aid recovery, sports men and women say they need it to win and, go on, be honest, don’t you feel good when you’re happy?  By focusing on what you want and being positive the unconscious mind will direct your body and conscious mind into actions that will bring you closer to your goal.

A couple of years ago I had a spotty face, every time I looked in the mirror I thought about the spots, as soon as one went another one came.  As an experiment I decided to change my thoughts, from that point I only thought of myself having beautiful clear skin.  by the end of the week there was only the tail end of one or two left.  I had been given the focus of my thoughts.

Why not try it yourself?

If you are overweight, think thin.

If you are in debt, think wealth.

What have you got to loose?
