The Hidden Cost of FREE
Are you always looking for bargains, especially something that you can get for free? The thought is that this will somehow enhance your life and perhaps make you feel more empowered, correct?
Well I would like to bring your attention to the real hidden cost of choosing to accept anything for free. What does the idea that one needs to have something for free say about that individual? Well it says that that individual is choosing to believe that they do not have the capacity to create anything of value themselves.
I'll say that again, it says that:
"That individual is choosing to believe that they do not have the capacity to create anything of value themselves".
Now say that to yourself and notice how it makes you feel inside. If you are someone who is in the habit of choosing to accept things for free then that statement above applies to you, whether you like it or not. My guess is that you probably don't like it because it makes you feel some or all of the following:
c) Low Self Worth,
d) Low Self Confidence,
f) Trapped in Deprivation,
So what is the real cost to you? Well it actually takes away all of your power doesn't it? By power, I mean things like:
a) Your Self Esteem,
b) Your Self Worth,
c) Your Self Confidence
d) Your Inspiration or Motivation
e) Your Energy
f) Your Creativity
How valuable is your power to create whatever you desire to you?
I'm sure you'll agree that it is priceless, isn't it?
So the cost to you of habitually accepting things for free, like this article for instance, is priceless.
One last thought, this article is not meant to be free. How you choose to take it is up to you. It is not my intention to take away your power. That's something you choose to do to yourself.
It's my intention to help remind you how you may tend to give it away. Now you may think this is just another marketing ploy, it isn't! That's your thoughts telling you that it's better to remain a victim of the belief that "Free" is a good thing (You may wish to refer to another recent article of mine entitled "All Your Problems Are Based in False Beliefs")
By "victim" I mean that when you choose to accept things for free you essentially become a victim because you have just given away your power. And, isn't someone who is powerless essentially a victim? Do you want to be a Victim?

Forgiveness: The Other Side
If we are honest with ourselves, we would have to admit that the reason we have difficulty forgiving others is because we sincerely believe we are justified in our withholding forgiveness. We become the judge of the offenders and by harboring bitterness and resentment against them; it is our distorted way of meting out punishment.
Among some of us who deem ourselves spiritual, the use of the word "spiritual" causes blushing and anxiety. What a pale word it is in the face of what earned spirituality actually provides.

Many may wonder what is God's will, or how do I put God's will into my life? Well let's see what the Bible says about God's will. We must first understand that Jesus wants us to be holy.
Actually, loving does not take any great effort on our part because it is not something we must put forth great effort to achieve. When God enters our heart, soul, and mind, love is spontaneously produced because He is love.

Questioning - Is It A Natural Process?
One of the first issues people on the spiritual path have to address is a doctrinal one: Is it wrong to question? Is asking questions about the truth we've been taught "sinful?" Your answer may have a dramatic effect on your ability to explore without guilt!One of the major issues facing many individuals today is the question of whether or not questioning the doctrine presented by their religion as a whole is "sinful." It's the first doctrinal issue that must be addressed by an individual seeking to strengthen their level of conviction, whether that conviction is for or against their religion as the foundation on which their spirituality is built.
