As I move forward with writing this book I am evolving and learning
especially as I question my direction and ask God for guidance.
For instance the title is evolving and being clarified, going from
Finding God On The Train to Notes on Enlightenment – Finding
God On The Train to my latest title Notes On Enlightenment –
Finding God On My Commute which I feel may be more descriptive
of what has actually occurred in the past three years.
I have also decided to move into Part Two of the book, which will
focus on what I have learned from God during my commute over
the past three years, organizing my Meditative Guidance by the
major messages being conveyed. These topics have bubbled up
from my blog posts and make up the topics that have been the
most impactful. As I write each chapter I will include it in a major
The first chapter in Part Two will focus on finding and accepting
our spiritual nature or essence, enabling us to live our “authentic
purposeful life” now. In this message I will focus on God’s direction
regarding becoming who we are meant to become and overcoming
our own fears, doubts, and negative life patterns that may keep
us from creating our heaven on earth. Over the past few weeks
I have offered a number of Affirmative Thoughts and Meditative
Guidance centered on purposeful life and action, which will
be the basis for this discussion.
Below I expand this discussion with the ingredients for living a
Strength, Power, Poise, and Purpose
Strength, Power, Poise, and Purpose are the ingredients for
positive living – fully authentic and able to meet the challenges
needed to succeed at any endeavor. Work on these attributes
during your meditations and prayers – envision yourself fully
in command of each – ready to co-create your dreams, your
heaven on earth.
To have Strength is the first attribute and it is required for
tackling issues in life – life challenges – but it is more important
in overcoming your fears, confronting your ego, dealing
with your doubts. Inner strength requires that you can take
the negative opinion of others and not be persuaded by
their direction or pathos.
Tapping into your Power is knowing your divine center and
being able to harness the energy - the energy of creation,
the energy of an active God in the world. You have this power
within if only you can clear away the things that zap and
dissipate your power – lack of courage – fear – trying to please
others. Seize your divine power and come to God in prayer
and meditation to rejuvenate your energy and reconnect with
All of this needs Poise as the underlying structure. You are
poised when you are confident, self assured, and know you
can handle whatever challenge awaits. Poised in the way you
talk, walk, think and present yourself. You must be sure you will
be graceful, confident, and knowing.
Purpose – the mission you are on must be clearly defined so
all actions are purposeful actions that are in alignment with
your authentic self – your divine purpose - the reason you
were born into this spiritual life. The Purpose needs to drive
you forward, clear the way, and keep you on track. You must
be willing to forsake all for this purpose – be willing to continue
without reinforcement or rewards.
With Strength, Power, Poise, and Purpose you are ready –
you are invincible – you are blessed.
