When you are beginning a new day, a new month, a new year, it is easier to make a commitment, a commitment to which you intend to hold true. It is easier to say today, “I will be kind in every way, and compassion will fill my thoughts, and words, and deeds. This is easier when you are beginning. But, it important to remember that once it is said you cannot leave it there, you must carry this commitment with you throughout the day so that it might be fulfilled come the end of the day. When an intention comes to you, reach-out and hold it, accept it, embrace it, and walk through the day, following through. It is possible for you to fulfill every commitment you utter, but it does take practice and intention.
And The Holy Spirit says:
Oh, when you are beginning anew everything is bright and shiny, and you are eager to do. But, as you walk through the day, or the week, or the month, or even the year the intentions of the new begin to fade as you face challenges, and compensate here and there, and find you must make-do to just get through to the end of the day, or the week, or the month, or the year. But, if you take that intention, and carry it with you, repeating it every hour, you find that it gives you the most unusual power to move into the next day, or the next week, or month, or year, renewing this commitment every hour. It does not take any time to repeat to yourself quietly, “I will be kind, and compassion will rule my thoughts.” That does not take a long time to do. So, whatever you find you are compelled to do make a commitment and follow through by carrying it with you, wherever you go.
