Belief Is Our Lens Which We Create With

This picture is from a photoshoot just a day before the 2010 North Americans. One of my favorite shots inspired by my friend and Hall of Fame bodybuilder, Shawn Ray! Thank you for inspiring me buddy!

The year is ending today and we will embark on a new year at midnight tonight. What awaits each of us in the upcoming months, we each will discover on our own. The mystery of life is not knowing exactly when, where and how things will unfold. But the theme of each of our stories we already know right now. We guide our tales through the beliefs that we truly hold deep within us. What we truly believe is more than what we wish or what we think might happen. True belief is the lens to which we see every experience through and deeply influences every action in our journey. Our words don’t mean much when trying to understand what we will attract into our lives. Instead, it is the energy we resonate articulated through what we believe to be true about ourselves and our world. This is why there are so many varied responses to life when so many offer the same words and actions. This kind of true belief is what we actually feel behind our words. Do we feel anticipation, or joy, or excitement, or do we feel doubt, fear or anxiety? What we feel each day, and in every moment, are the instruments to which we focus our life experiences through each moment of our lives. No matter what we say in words, or what we desire to believe; we are each held to a set of programming that we participate in each day by the thoughts we think, the behaviors we perform and the beliefs that we hold. If given enough of our creative energy, we always get what we want. We are all powerful creators in this life. And we come to create a joyful and wonderful life. Whatever this may mean to you, you came to do it. I know I did. I am love. I am joy. I am so very good. Happy New Year to you all, and may your desires match what you believe is possible for your future year!
