5 Ways to Get At It!

“Get busy using the Truth you know. Love those about you in a practical way; pay no attention to what others are doing, in so far as to make comparisons. Bring forth your own joyous world of love, friendship, beauty and plenty. God is giving everything required to build such a world. There is within you the God-given intelligence to build such a world. Get at it!”

–  From “How to Let God Help You,” by Myrtle Fillmore

Last week marked the 80th anniversary of the death of Myrtle Fillmore, the woman credited with co-founding (along with her husband Charles), Unity, known as the positive and prayerful Christianity movement.

Last week also saw the death of Steve Jobs, the talented and innovative creator of Apple.  This is the quote that was circling a couple of days after he died:

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

Isn’t it amazing how similar the quotes are?  Two great visionaries who boldly dared to believe in their dreams and to fully own the truth of their beings.

My question–with two follow-ups–to you on this Mindful Monday is this:

Are you doing the same?

If not, why not?  Don’t you think it’s time?

Let’s break down Myrtle’s words into our daily doses for the work week.

1.  Get busy using the Truth you know.

2.  Love those about you in a practical way; pay no attention to what others are doing, in so far as to make comparisons.

3. Bring forth your own joyous world of love, friendship, beauty and plenty.

4. God is giving everything required to build such a world.

5. There is within you the God-given intelligence to build such a world. Get at it!”

Amen!  Now get at it!

Gi-normous blessings to you.

B Well & Present,

Beth

    Dear, dear Beth, thank you for this post. For so many reasons I needed to read this today and now my anxious soul has settled down. Today I will “get at it”!

    Thank you for this reminder, as it’s just what I needed today. Love your Mindful Mondays. They start my week off right (even though I don’t get around to commenting until mid-week). Perhaps that’s because I needed to come here and be reminded again?
    You and this blog are a blessing to so many.
