Our journal topic today is persistence. What helps you to persist toward your goals?
Every generation has music that motivates them to persist toward their goals, to stay the course, to carry on. One of my favorite current singers is Nate Ruess from the band, Fun. These lyrics say it all.
"When you're lost and alone,
or you're sinking like a stone,
May your past be the sound,
of your feet upon the ground
The idea that God would not want the best possible life for you, is preposterous! You are the living, breathing expression of the most high God. God put that dream in your heart in the first place. Carry on with your prayers and meditation. Carry on by surrounding yourself with like-minded people, the ones who see your the infinite nature. Surround yourself with people who won't let you quit until you have achieved your goals or something better. The Center for Spiritual Living Capistrano Valley is such a place.
