The Power of Faith

The term ‘faith’ generally conjures up a religious connection, yet it is not connected to religion at all. In many ways, organized religion is just a vehicle to have faith. Faith can be derived from many avenues, different Gods or the universe itself. I am not a great believer in organized religion –  for the crimes it has committed on itself over thousands of years, and because it is the source of destructive fervor by those whom become fanatical – leading to war, terrorism and unspeakable acts of inhuman action.

However, I am a believer in universal energy, in having faith, and the connection between the mind, body and universe – what one deems as quantum physics. Everything is formed by energy matter, and we are all connected at various levels through vibrations emitted by different forms of energy matter. I have personally experienced some amazing ‘coincidences’ when I gained a connection with a higher energy and asked for that which I desired. I have also suffered from a lack of connection.

When things in your life just seem to fall apart, no matter how hard you try, and no matter how many times you pick yourself up and start out again in a different avenue, there comes a point when not only your drive to succeed dissolves, but your spirit is broken. This is the time when we need to call upon the universe the most. You need to be rescued, so you need to make the call to be saved. Start scripting some bold statements. Statements of firm resolve not to be defeated by negative emotions and circumstances. Start creating an escape path. By leveraging the universe you can do all the things you want – just stake your claim, don’t give up and ask to be saved.

This is when you must put down all the baggage you are carrying and let the universe carry it for a while. You need to regain your faith by connecting with the universal energy flow as say to yourself:

I will [INSERT SUCCESS ACTION]. So I shall be saved.

Repeat this statement adding in all the deeds of action you must perform to be successful in your current goal. And then trust that the universe will support your goals. It renews your strength.

Too often we worry about not achieving our lifes purpose – yet the only day that really matters is the day you know you are going to die, and that day is only one day in the thousands that precede it, so save that worrying thought for that special day and live in the moment of today.

Yesterday was history, tomorrow is mystery, but today is the day that you can change your life.

Not Much Sympathy For Executive Package Cuts

The Economic Research Institute recently reported that the average total compensation of the highest paid executives at U.S. public companies fell 4 percent for the year ended in November 2008. With top executives receiving compensation packages worth an average of  $17,760,518, this represented a cut of around $700,000. Whilst I would darely love to be receiving this sort of remmuneration for my many, many invaluable skills and shining personality, I can’t muster up a lot of sympathy for this outcome.

It does raise the question again though – how fair are executive packages?  Should such levels of remmuneration even exist?

Would love to hear your thoughts?
