truthful perceptions: power

 

img_0011-copy3

Change requires process and process is never a pleasant thing. Through the process leading to change we develop power. We come to learn the source of this power is from within. It takes on many forms in the virtues known as resilience, perseverance, determination, truth, wisdom, faith, prayer, confidence and so on.

 Nonetheless it is all under and connected to power and understanding that as the Master Teacher taught, “the kingdom of God is within…”

 The word power occurs in the Bible 276 times. It is a word synonymous to the name of GOD. Power is what gives us a prevailing strength over the stressors in our lives draining our positive energy.

 The great question before us is am I being decisive in finding my power? Or am I just fledging through life awaiting something grand to happen like winning the lottery…?

Within you is the Spirit of the Great Creator of the known Universe. That in and of itself is recognizable as Power. It is said that your body is your first land to conquer. Your spirit is second and your mind is third.

 When you discipline and tame the body you conquer the flesh. When you calm, poise and channel the spirit, you have now conquered the fear.

When you conquer the mind you now release the powers of creativity unbound and capable of creating worlds of reality beyond your previous imagination.

 While the grace of GOD supplies all of our needs, the power of GOD provisions all of our thoughts and creative endeavors, for as you think in your heart, so you will become.

Find, Recognize and Source Your Power Forevermore.

truthful perceptions: impact…

It is to the expectation of God’s daily delight that we would earnestly seek through sacrifice, devotion and dedication to replicate the mind of JESUS. For in so doing we are of one mind distinctly innate to one core set of values based on the precepts, principles and edicts of His message of love.

Yet, we must allow this love to be seasoned fluently with humility to the edifying of one another through encouragement and support of what goals and talents we each possess for the greater good of the whole. This notion does not call upon us to negate nor deny our own individual abilities, but rather seek to affirm our own God-given inner knowledge that we are neither forgotten nor set aside in God’s eyes.

For His Word say’s that He will never leave us nor forsake us-1 Kings 8:57. This practice of lifting up each other higher than our self is for the benefit of the greater mind of God to unfold the mystery of His Will towards us. By loving our neighbor as we love our self, the ensuing equation is harmony, justice and respect for every one in the community of humanity.

This attitude slowly absorbs us into that spirited mind of Christ we seek. An arrogant mind surveys the landscape seeking what minds it contrives as weaker than its own, in order to indignantly dominate through insidiously demanding, what can you do for me?

Whereas the Christ-centered mind will always endeavor upon what things it must and can do unto others as the servant of God.

Neither sheepishly or in subservience to man but rather, in a dignified contemplation of transforming, that which is evil to make good, that which is abhorrent to make pure, and that which is of none effect to glean enlightenment, in truthful knowledge of their value in order to make a positive impact.

truthful perceptions: HPT

“We are the sum total of our experiences…” “It takes several parts to make up the whole…” “The thigh bone connected to the knee bone, the knee bone connected to the ankle bone…”

 We’ve all heard these catch phrases from time to time throughout our lives. These words and statements convey a message stating although component or a part of something may exist, its greater purpose is to its co-existence and connection to the whole.

 Many have inquired what exactly is a “Holistic Personal Trainer” and how does that differ from a Personal Trainer?

Exercise science is a remarkable branch of knowledge concerning the study of human movement and the physiological responses to those movements.

 However, its range of motion (no pun intended) is limited to its scope of practice concerning the physical and physiological aspects of said science. Holistic science incorporates all components of human living. Mental, Physical, Physiological and the Spiritual.

 As a practicing Christian, my faith both fuels and guides my desired goals and aspirations for a healthy living lifestyle.

As a HPT, I’m not in the business to preach to anyone, but simply to encourage a regimen of proper rest, proper nutrition and proper exercise that also incorporates a clients spiritual belief system.  

I have found that those who do so lead a richer and more fulfilling experience of healthy living in the awareness that GOD is not only the Creator of their temple, but is instrumental in its physical longevity, endowed healing, healthy development and subsequent rewards.  

 The Bible says: “For bodily exercise has some value, but godliness has value in all things, having the promise of the life which is now, and of that which is to come 1 Timothy 4:8…”

 This is why I believe in “(Holistic) Fitness For Life…”

truthful perceptions: mind…

Russel-147

Christ came into the world to teach us how to think constructively. What is it that makes you strong? What pushes you to push on in spite of setback, disappointments and failures?

The mind can either be a place where you’re stressed-out, burned-out, flipped-out or turned-out. GOD gave us a precious mind to be in-service, not insane. To be of servitude to Him and not insanity through the world.

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ JESUS. That we all speak the same thing with no divisions between us and that we are perfectly joined together in the same mind. For the Prince of Peace is our pattern of perfection, patience, power and persistence to succeed.

What makes you strong, blessed, wise, creative, resilient, loving and faithful? The answer is your beautiful mind.

GOD Bless You. Stay Encouraged. Love All-Ways & Keep Looking Up. IJPN.

truthful perceptions: courage

Russel-147

Praise GOD: Sometimes in life it’s better to be half of a lion than all of a lamb. If you’re growing roses in your life, you must not fear the thorns that may come along with them. Only your fears can hold you back from living your dreams, but your courage will always support your vision.

Don’t let the haters and those who are jealous of you stop your momentum. They are cowards who sneak closer to death everyday, while the brave live on. So take comfort, courage and confidence in all of your plans, because sometimes in life it’s better to be half of a lion, than all of a lamb. IJPN ~ In JESUS Precious Name.
