But I Meant Well.

October 24, 2019

The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

English proverb

How many times have you heard someone say, but I meant well. As a parent, you always want the best for your children and family right? If you own a business, you always want to make the best decisions for your employees, right? In government, the elected officials always want to do their best for the people, right? In corporations, they want to do and be their best for their stake holders and provide quality products and or service, right?

 

I could go on and on listing ways that we all start out with good intentions, however if you do not fully understand what the impact will be, your intentions will backfire and turn into something that is corrupt, hurtful, harmful, and even dangerous. Your intentions must be grounded in spiritual law and sound wisdom. Every intention must be a conscious choose for the greater good of all. The world is in a state of turmoil and upheaval because of intentions based on greed, and the believe that you and I are separate. Families try to protect themselves or make choices based on

 

ignorance. This can be very harmful, even though your intentions weren’t meant to be. Our intentions must be based in love. They must be for the greater good. Things are in chaos due to the lack of understanding, consciousness, compassion and believing that nature is outside of us.

True good intentions, are paved with a holistic approach. It is the golden rule. What we do to one, we do to all. Your intentions are powerful. Your impact is even more powerful. Find kindness, strength, love, compassion, beauty, and virtues of grace in your heart to open yourself to goodness.

 

Good intentions come from the heart, not from the head.

Being of service and keeping yourself humble will be sure fire way to guard against good intentions turning toward hell. Keep the journey onward and upward.

 

 


Prayer Works

April 8, 2015

Life is a prayer. I love this statement; When life is rough pray, when life is great, pray. I have come into the habit of praying every day. Actually, I practice prayer without ceasing. Which means, I am conscious of my thoughts, which are my prayers. Every morning, I wake up and ask God how may I be of service to my highest good. Every evening, I do the same. I feel and have come to know that prayer is not just in times of trouble, but also when times are good.  It is raising our consciousness with a deep feeling of gratitude that will connect us to God, and this is where are prayers are answered. Pray every day, even when times are good. Pray is a state of mind.

Take Initiative

September 16, 2014

Initiative1Initiative is the pass-key that opens the door to opportunity. In Napoleon Hills book The Law of Success,there is a chapter devoted to this quality that must be understood and applied, if you desire success in your life. To chose a definite chief aim or purpose is the first step. Then to have this purpose materialize, you must do something every day to get closer to your desired outcome. You must take initiative.

I recently published a book, entitled How May I Serve. I use a pen name “Karen Mathews”, because it is a memoir of my life so far. I have wanted to write this book for some time. I took initiative every day to complete my book, and now it is published and available for sale. The  goal of my book is to empower women who struggle with limiting beliefs about themselves and what they can accomplish in life.  With initiative, I would never have completed this goal.

So today, ask yourself, what can I do to Serve others? What do I have to offer? Than create a plan, and do something every day to get closer to it. You will then have taken initiative, which will make you a leader and give you self confidence to keep moving forward in a positive direction. How may you serve?


How May I Serve?

April 1, 2014

Be of serviceHow may I serve? How may I be of service to the world? It doesn’t require any heroic action to be of service. You can serve the flowers and trees right in your own garden, or neighborhood. Bless all the people you meet. Give a kind word or thank everyone you come in contact with today. Give of yourself in your work, in your home, in your community and in your world. Being of service is an expression of gratitude for life. So step outside your comfort zone, and be of service.
“Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”—Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Only a life lived in service of others is worth living.”—Albert Einstein.


Be Of Service

October 29, 2013

Be of serviceBeing of service, is the highest form of happiness. If you are feeling down, depressed or unhappy, be of service. Give of yourself like never before. Think of how you can light up someone’s life by giving back. Don’t ever think of what’s in it for you, but how you can help some one else feel good.
I know of no other way to feel my best as when I am offering a service of good will to someone. This creates pure joy in my heart and I know it will do the same for you. Find a way to be of service. Whether it is a smile, a complement, or something tangible give with an open heart. The rewards are ten fold. So the next time you are feeling down about your life, be of service to someone else and see how quickly you will feel happiness in return. Let’s learn to be go givers rather than go getters.
