Name your good

     It is important to put things into perspective. When we do so we are able to see with enlightened eyes. Look around this world in front of you and consciously envision the world into which you would like to step in the very next moment. Color this world with everything you want. Give it peace and understanding. Have hope on every doorstep. Awaken within and brighten the skies of your awareness. Let your inner sun unfold and rise into the space before you. Yes this happens first of all in front of your inner eyes. Persist in your vision. Keep calling out to the world within world and make things better. Heal every hurt and open every door that has ever been closed to you. Gradually do this until you will feel yourself lifted up within. There will be an all over sense of well being that fills your mind. Draw your good unto you. Bring it here now and keep on thinking of new ways to bring your good into your life. The answer to how to do this is really quite easy. All you have to do is name your good. Remember that whole Genesis thing. Day 2,3,4,5,6-man all were declared good until in Genesis Verse 31
"And God saw every thing that He had made, and, behold, it was very good." Very Good. Extra special. Amazingly good. Incredibly Good. In short after every that he had made it was very good. What did God do?
God named his good. He called it very good. It wasn't enough just to be good. It had to excel in goodness.
What can we do here as the image and likeness of our creator? Name our good. Call forth the images in our mind and make them good. Continue making them good each moment in a constant meditation. What we will then discover is the same thing that God did after making everything good. We will discover that it is Very Good. Build up your good. Do not be content to have just a little bit of good, or random good, or just a passing good. Go for every bit of good that you can envision. Start with your thoughts and the way you look at yourself and others. Call yourself by your rightful name. It is good. That is your name. It is what you and all of creation were declared to be. Go back to basics. Go back to the beginning. Go back to your good. Since God is Eternal then creation is ongoing. If creation is ongoing therefore we are stilled being called good by God. Honor your Father and Mother. Your Father is your good that you've been declared since the beginning by God. Your Mother is the good that you yourself give birth to by making those images in your mind which name your good and place it before you in your world of each day. You then get to partake of your good as a child partakes of the bounty of his mother's love. Out of this love that you receive make more love and continue the flow of good. How do you do this? One good thought after another. Set yourself in motion. This motion is the movement of your thoughts to embrace the good that you are eternally a part of. Open up to this good. Be inspired by this good. Following your meditation unify with the world around you. Begin to notice the subtle changes that even a few minutes of this kind of meditation will bring. Look outside at the sky. If it was cloudy, notice breaks in the clouds where the clear sunlight is shining through. If it is nighttime notice the extra twinkling sparkle of the stars and planets. If you are with someone, notice the extra glow they have and how you feel about them is deepened. There is no end to this meditation. It simply continues and grows. Make use of it every opportunity you have. In the car, while waiting in line at the supermarket, taking a walk, before dinner, after lunch, on hold, waiting for your computer to boot up. You get the idea. It is the same idea as the SHMA ..........And these words that I command you today shall be in your heart. And you shall teach them diligently to your children, and you shall speak of them
when you sit at home, and when you walk along the way, and when you lie down and when you rise up. And you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be for frontlets between your eyes. And you shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates..............................
