"Imagination is the eye of the soul."
- Joseph Joubert


"A belief is only a thought that you keep thinking and it is only the beliefs that you hold that keep you from the things that you want.
A belief is only a thought that you keep thinking and the only thing that keeps you from who you really are and what you really want is a belief which is only a thought you keep thinking."

"Take your power back by remembering that a belief is only a thought that you keep thinking."

"Think the thoughts that match what you want until you believe them. And when you think the thoughts that match what you want until you believe them, universal forces will give you the proof of your belief."

"Keep thinking the thought until you believe it and when you believe it, it is."

"This is the perfect environment for a creator to create and you knew it when you came."

Abraham excerpts from the CD that came with the book The Vortex.

IRONMAN Journey - Swim Success

There are certain things I want to remember... things that made me laugh along my IRONMAN journey.
This is one of them. 
Friday, 20 August 2018... text sent to friends and family... 
So, I swam 5,000 yards this morning... 
3,000 of it was non-stop.  
Before I started, Coach asked me how many laps was 3,000 yards... and I said, "60!"  
And he said, "Very good!" 
And I said, "I'm going to do 20, 20, 20." 
And he said, "Whatever." :) 
Anyway, I swam 3,000 in the same time it took me to swim 2,500 two weeks ago... 56 minutes and some seconds...  
Coach said, "You must have had a bad day that day you swam 2,500."  
I said, "It was a good day that day." :)  
But he gave me the best compliment when I was all done today, he said I'm ready for my IRONMAN swim! :)
My favorite part is when Coach said, "Whatever." :) 

Preparation is Key


Moving Beyond Pain

"Will you at least consider this: when all you can see is your pain, perhaps then you lose sight of me?" - William P. Young, The Shack: Where Tragedy Confronts Eternity
"Faith--Faith is required when you are in a state of suffering. Nothing is more convincing than pain, and when it is present, words can't make it go away. Pain is too physical and too present. But despite its intensity, pain is only temporary. Evil depends on our forgetting this fact. If it couldn't inflict pain, evil would have no power at all. Therefore, when caught in the throes of any pain, keep faith. Realize that there is a reality beyond our present misery. You are that reality, and you will return to it as your suffering lessens." - Deepak Chopra, The Third Jesus: The Chris We Cannot Ignore

Forgetfulness and Returning to God

Rafiki: Look down there.
Simba: [looks into a pond of water] That's not my father. That's just my reflection.
Rafiki: No, look harder. [he touches the water; as it ripples, Simba's reflection changes to that of Mufasa]
Rafiki: You see? He lives in you.
Mufasa: [from above] Simba.
Simba: Father? [Simba sees his father's spirit in the sky]
Mufasa: Simba, you have forgotten me.
Simba: No. How could I?
Mufasa: You have forgotten who you are, and so forgotten me. Look inside yourself, Simba. You are more than what you have become. You must take your place in the Circle of Life.
Simba: How can I go back? I'm not who I used to be.
Mufasa: Remember who you are. You are my son, and the one true King. Remember who you are.
