On Sowing and Reaping

We have all heard, “you reap what you sow.”  But what does it mean, really?
 
You may have heard of the “Law of Attraction.”  These teachings are correct in that what you put out into the universe is what comes back to you.  It is Universal Law.    It works for everyone and does not depend on the intent of the user.  It works for those with altruistic motivations who only care about helping others and it also works for those with more self serving motives of accumulating power and monetary wealth.
 
Many times the Law of Attraction is associated with money.  And who wouldn’t like to attract more money to themselves?
 
But we are missing the point if we limit this Universal Law to just one aspect of life.  It can all be summed up in these simple words.  “You reap what you sow.”  Or “what you put out into the world comes back to you.”
 
We create our own reality using our thoughts, words and actions.  If we sow love with loving thoughts, words and actions we will reap love.  If we sow fear with fearful thoughts, words and actions we will reap fear.  If we sow lack with thoughts, words and actions of not having enough we will reap lack.  If we sow joy with joyful thoughts, words and actions we will reap joy.  If we sow sorrow with sorrowful thoughts, words and actions we will reap sorrow.  If we sow peace with peaceful thoughts words and actions we will reap peace.
 
Now our outward circumstances may not change, but when we change the way we look at them we change.  This is how we create our own reality.
 
Don’t over complicate this.  It really is that simple.  Now living it? That’s the hard part.  Emoji  It takes time, patience and practice.  But as you begin to see how you are attracting things you want as well as things you don’t want into your life you will want to keep trying to learn this skill.
 

 

 

It’s the Place In Between that we Fear

It is not so much that we’re afraid of change or so in love with the old ways, but it’s that place in between that we fear…It’s like being in between trapezes.  It’s Linus when his blanket is in the dryer.  There’s nothing to hold on to.” — Marilyn Ferguson

As we Watch TV or Films…

As we watch TV or films, there are no organic transitions,
only edits.
The idea of A becoming B, rather than A jumping to B,
has become foreign.
– Esa-Pekka Salonen

Both Upsetting and Exciting

Copyright 2012 by R.A. Robbins

I suppose whenever you go through periods of transition, or in a way, it’s a very definite closing of a certain chapter of your life – I suppose those times are always going to be both very upsetting and also very exciting by the very nature because things are changing and you don’t know what’s going to happen.

A Little Bit of Pain

“There’s a little bit of pain in every transition, but we can’t let that stop us from making it. If we did, we’d never make any progress at all.”   Phil Schiller

Being Summoned to Make a Transition

Inage Copyright 2017 by R.A. Robbins

“In the hero stories, the call to go on a journey takes the form of a loss, an error, a wound, an unexplainable longing, or a sense of a mission. When any of these happens to us, we are being summoned to make a transition. It will always mean leaving something behind,…The paradox here is that loss is a path to gain.”
― David RichoHow to Be an Adult: A Handbook on Psychological and Spiritual Integration

It Isn’t The Changes That Do You In.

“It isn’t the changes that do you in, it’s the transitions. Change is not the same as transition. Change is situational: the new site, the new boss, the new team roles, the new policy. Transition is the psychological process people go through to come to terms with the new situation. Change is external, transition is internal.”
