The Power of Action
One can sit for days in deep meditation, even travel to remote parts of our world to rest at the feet of a guru in hopes to bring about a transformation in their life.
A person can pray for years, tithe and do everything they’re supposed to do to be considered a religious or spiritual person.
Another can chant for weeks on end, thumb through mala beads and read some of the most inspirational books around.
There are some who have shifted their thoughts towards the positive side of life, written down and envisioned their biggest goals.
As empowering and beneficial as these practices are, there is one ingredient that is required before any change can occur in our lives.
Yes, meditation can bring calmness and peace to your spirit, prayer can empower you to push through the fear, reading and visioning can be powerful practices but unless you are moved to action, it is hard for anything to change.
As Pablo Picasso put it, “Action is the foundational key to success.“
If you look back at this past week, month, or year and were asked to identify the primary actions you’ve taken each day, what would these actions be?
Some of these actions could include going to work, watching TV, reading, eating certain foods, working on your dreams, visiting friends and family, and so on.
Each action brings about an equal reaction. Therefore, what we choose to do on a daily basis helps to build our weeks, months and ultimately our lives.
Of all the actions you commit to, what are the key actions that are serving you in becoming your highest and best?
Of all the actions you do each day, which ones are causing you to discount your unique abilities, push your dreams to the side, and allowing you to settle into mediocrity?
The worst habits and most toxic thoughts can be removed by committing to new actions consciously and intentionally.
As great as the knowledge and wisdom found in Science of Mind and other spiritual texts may be, if you aren’t led into new actions, it is hard for transformation to take place in your life.
