Journaling and the importance of focusing on beauty in your life now and in the past…

This is probably going to be a short blog post, because I need to eat here in about 15 minutes :-D

(I love food)

I had an interesting experience today, where I didn’t think there was positives around a couple of years in my life when things used to be a struggle.

All I remembered from that time was negative.

So I pulled out a blank document on my computer, and I asked my unconscious mind to start giving me beautiful memories from that time – things that I had experienced that were magical, amazing, artful, powerful, important, learnings I had had, and joy I had walked in.

I spent the next 90 minutes in a trance, remembering beautiful sunsets, crystal clear, blue oceans, being chased by endangered turtles, seeing skies so crystal clear, that I would stare up into heaven, knowing that the universe never ends – that glory, beauty, power, majesty, and the art of life continue forever, through all time.

I remembered dreams I never had, people I didn’t remember, waterfalls that I had forgotten, picking fruit in jungles that were so beautiful, that I had to stop my inner talk, and pay attention to the wonder.

Then I remembered, yet again…

…that every moment in life is magical.

I appreciate you – remember the journey, the beauty, the joy in the struggle – every moment is a gift that you can walk in Joy – and why focus on anything but that?

Leave me your thoughts in the comments.

I appreciate you,
David Wood

P.S.  I LITERALLY had so many images, memories, beautiful things, dreams, and victories pop into my mind, that I spent 90 minutes writing them all, and couldn’t get them down, before I realized that I still wanted to blog today, and only had the last 5 minutes to write this down, and tell you I love you.  Thank you for reading.  You’re awesome.

Thanks, Dave.  I had not thought of journaling from the past.  What a great tool.  I suppose you have done a blog on how you get into these great trances you do when you get such great info from your subconscious.  I'd love to know how you do that.  I've tried meditation but I always either get drown by the chatter in my head or fall asleep.  Thanks for the help.  You're badass.

love your spirit Dave!  You have really inspired me to take time out of my hectic day and remember the good, the beauty, the joy that is everywhere.  We all need to open our eyes and our minds more to our thoughts and our memories.  Yes, life is magical and we need to see it, feel it and believe it!

Thank you David, I love the way you put it all. I had to do the same thing I used to see negativity constantly. And one day I decided to focus on only the good moments in my life. Whether they where all real or not I couldn't say. And the beauty is I don't even care. I learned that happiness is something that comes from within, and that we have to do whatever we can to find it... Even if that means making up our past in order to be grateful for life.Thanks again, Empower has changed my life forever. And it's funny it all started with a long haired hippy Jedi sitting in a boat... Thanks to yo D.Sharpe, and Justin... You've got a die hard soldier for freedom here!

Thanks for sharing such a short and sweet post. I need to do this. I too easily get caught up in the things that I have to do, always thinking about what needs to be done, instead of taking a moment every so often to appreciate what I have and have had more. Living in the present basically.

Great post Dave. It is so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday living that we don't stop and think about all the wonderful things that happened to us that we can be grateful for. I need to start journaling.

No matter how hard, life gives us beauty and happiness sometimes. For the past two years I've met amazing people who helped me realize about the beauty of life and how lucky I am to see how far I've done I've gone through. And this is actually a phase in my life where I have the most productive moment and also freedom. So enjoy your life (with positive things absolutely).

Since I can remember I have been marveling at the tiniest wonders of life, beauty, and magnificent yet simple creation. People used to think I was a little weird, (that a sunset could make me cry) until I got around those who felt and thought the way I do. It sounds like you found many things to be grateful for, and find true JOY IN... There is so much beauty in our world that it would take a lifetime to discover it all. Like you have illustrated, it's simply a matter of turning our attention toward it, focusing on it, an ALLOWING it to FLOOD OUR hearts!!

There you go, triggering my next post about how my sister rang today to apologise (for shouting at me on the phone the day before) because she had worked out her anger was from when she was 10 (I was 8) and she was left in charge of 5 children while Mum had to work. Gotta concentrate on all the good things - I'll write it and tell her I love her. Thanks Dave

Truly are awesome dude. Great blog post brother, i feel that sometimes when i write a blog post from the heart or just basically letting my unconscious mind speak for itself, it is so much easier and i ended up writing 800 words in 25 minutes. Where as usually i'd take 2 hours to write 800 words. Thanks for the reminder bro!

Wonderful post David. I appreciate you and your founding a company that others can start to find their joy in everything too after they create a bit of money. It will only be about the joy in life. It is never about the money!

 

Great to share this special heart insight with us. I thank you from my heart. You are an amazing Infinite Being of Joy today in all you do!

That is fun!

In-JOY!

Mary

David, thank you for that reminder...that every moment in life is magical. For many years I walked around and didn't appreciate the beauty in the world. Just focused on everything wrong in my life. Then my daughter was born and I realized if I didn't change she would be destined to follow my lead. Today I notice and appreciate the beauty in the world and I am happy to say, she followed my lead.
