Are you stuck? What’s holding you back? As these phrases dominate your self-talk you can buy into it and literally shut down from life and even die if you don’t make a change. But that sounds impossible I have been living this way so long it must take a great effort to move from stuck to action. Not really! What it takes is a shift in consciousness and a belief that you can do anything you set your mind to. But here is the catch. You couldn’t do it all on your own even if you wanted to. Great! Where do I go from here?
The Zen Frog
According to Zen legend two frogs found themselves entrapped into a huge pit with no way out. Looking up the frogs could see their friends telling them how awful their situation was and concurred that it was such a pity there was no way out of their situation. The one frog accepted his terrible situation and just gave up and croaked. The other frog was deaf and he took the other frogs spouting off by watching their mouths open wide as a cheerleading session —giving him group effort encouragement. The deaf frog gave a giant leap and hopped safely out of the pit.
So the moral of the story is don’t pay any attention to your own self-talk when it is negative or your neighbors and relatives, who may be giving you their own dose of negativity. Align yourself with positive thoughts and allow yourself to tap into the cosmic intelligence, which will allow you to leapfrog out of any situation. If you thought superman had it all figured out— you can also run on the same wavelengths and create a new life —if that’s something you want to do.
In summary you already have super cosmic intelligence within you and so does everyone else including: the fish, reptiles, insects, birds, animals, plants and rocks. Just by knowing it is already in your makeup gives you a great bit of knowledge, which can allow you to be friends with your innate intelligence and do anything in this World that you want. Now that’s something!!!
AS MY ONE FRIEND USED TO SAY: “THAT’S HEAVY!” ACTUALLY IT IS VERY LIGHT AND IT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL LIGHT AND AIRY — ALMOST LIKE THE CLOUDS AS YOU SHIFT THE BURDEN TO YOUR HIGHER INTELLIGENCE. ACTUALLY IT IS BETTER TO PARTNER WITH YOUR HIGHER INTELLIGENCE SO EACH OF YOU HAS A STAKE IN THIS PHASE OF YOUR LIFE.

THINGS YOU MAY NOT KNOW: A person in the United states wanted to have a house. The only thing he had that he could trade was a paperclip. He traded the paperclip into a ping pong ball, which he traded for a paddle, which he traded for a pair of athletic shoes, which he traded for an endorsement, which he traded for a car, which he traded for a house. So there you have it! Anything is possible! (those aren’t the exact trades but he did start with a paperclip and ended up with a house—–you get the idea)
THINGS YOU MAY WANT TO SAVE: Your Anger! It doesn’t do anyone any good so why choose to use it?
ZENTRAVELER SAYS: If you want to see a perfect example of your true inner self take a look at the animals, birds, fishes, insects and see what you come up with. They are so connected —-and you could be too.
From here to Infinity is a relatively short ride! The next leg takes ions and ions as you fly through the Barycentric Dynamical Time Zone and on and on and on.
