Beauty without kindness and bravery is just a pretty empty shell, my dear. And you can find plenty of those on the beach. People use them to decorate their rooms. So I hope you aspire to be so much more than just beautiful. I hope you aspire to be so much more than a pretty little thing that decorates the room you walk into.

The Law of Attraction Technique More Powerful Than Visualizing:
What is it? Re-writing or imagining the day as you wished it had been. Every incident and conversation.
Where did it come from? Neville Goddard, a mystic teacher who taught in Los Angeles and New York in the 1950s, was the first to understand and apply the technique of revision.
How do I do it? In your mind recall the day from when you woke up. Make each incident conform to your ideal wishes. So, if you woke to a loud bang from the neighbour above, you would change that to seeing that you woke peacefully. If you received a letter with disappointing news, mentally read the letter you wished you had read instead! Imagine all your bills were paid. Imagine he/she didn’t snap at you, but infact helped you. Imagine that phone call you’ve been waiting for. Imagine you had a sense of peace that never left you today. Imagine you had more than enough time, money and energy left over at the end of the day! And either see this in your mind or write it out. The essential point is to feel the reality of what you wished had happened.
Why does it work? Neville Goddard said revision allows you to radically change your attitude to your present circumstances and to the world. And to the degree you can change your attitude, the world around you will change to reflect that.
What are the benefits? •It is similar to mindfulness meditation because it helps remove the residue of stress that builds up daily. •It helps you press Pause on the negative flow if you are in one. •It enhances your mental faculties of imagination and willpower as you imagine what you’d like •It helps you believe you are more in control of your life than you know.
Examples: •A woman that saw a hat she wanted but couldn’t afford, imagined she had it and was later gifted the exact same hat. •A boss that was hard to work with for 11 years, became more appreciative of his employer overnight, praising her design skills. All the designer did that morning was imagine on her walk to work that her boss was with her the whole commute, praising her. •A young person imagined a tax refund letter and a revised bill, with an apology for the over-charge, came within a week.
We spend so much time searching for ways to fix some loves, ignoring that we built them on deteriorating foundations made of loneliness.
Guilt and regret will not fix this house when it was made to crumble because of our own destructiveness.
Just a warm-up sketch from one of my streams this week! Don’t forget - I stream twice a week (Thursdays at 7pmADT and Sundays at 10am!), but this week I’m adding a daytime Friday stream because I’m off work for the time being!
Things that could have been done to help Shmi Skywalker:
republic credits. He could have found a more suggestible businessman and “forced”
them to trade currencies so he would have enough to buy Shmi.
They could have
knocked Watto down and taken Shmi with them. By the time watto woke they would
be long gone, probably with enough tech to remove the chip or disable it (in legends it’s established
that the chip’s signal only works on the planet so when the slave leaves orbit
they are safe whether or not the chip was removed or inactive.
have hired someone to strong-arm Watto into freeing shmi (or done it themselves)
have gone straight to the Hutts to make a deal with them. Something like, make
this guy free this slave and this jedi will owe you one. We know the jedi have
no problem helping slavers when it serves their own interests.
he could at
least have bought some protection for her, like hiring someone to keep an eye
on her. she was only left with some credits because Anakin gave his to her. No
one else made any attempt to, at the very least, improve the poor woman’s life.
When you look at me, I feel like I can’t breathe. When your lips curl into that smirk of yours, I feel like I could die. Anything you do makes me melt. Even the little things like smiling at me in the hallway. God, I love everything about you.
