7 Awesome Takeaways From Robert N. Anthony’s Book: Beyond Positive Thinking

Published

on

Robert Anthony’s book, Beyond Positive Thinking, is a wonderful book that teaches how to attain a positive mindset by overcoming old beliefs.

The book also teaches you how to transcend adversity, and get whatever you want. It is an inspiring book which you must read.

I read the book twice, and I learned the following:

  1. Your Limitations become True When You Believe in Them

Our life’s circumstances are shaped by our belief systems. Therefore, if you believe something is preventing you from achieving your goals, it will actually prevent you from achieving them.

  1. The Universe Reacts to Your Thoughts

When you think positive thoughts, the universe will bring you positive things to fulfill your thoughts. Conversely, when you think negative thoughts, the universe will bring you negative things that match your thoughts.

  1. . Trust Your Intuition

You must trust your intuition if you want to meet your wildest dreams. Trust it because it connects you to God, and it can tell you the right actions you have to take at any particular moment.

  1. Your Self-Worth Determines Who and What You Attract

You bring into your life the things you feel worthy of having. For this reason, everything you have in your life matches your self-worth.Your car, clothes, and all your material possessions rhyme with your self-worth.

Also, your self-worth determines the people you hang out with because you often associate with individuals you feel worthy of being with.

  1. Allow Everybody to Be Your Teacher

Sometimes, the answers you want come from other people. For this reason, you must listen to everybody’s advice because there is always value in what people tell us.  Besides this, never ignore suggestions or criticism. Instead, embrace them and find out their value.

‘When we accept only our opinion, we shut out everything else.’ – Robert Anthony

     6. Emotion is the Secret to Successful Visualization

While visualizing your desired future, always accompany the visualization with emotions if you want to quickly visualize your dreams into reality. Always be enthusiastic and joyful while visualizing what you want.

     7. The 5 R’s That Attract What You Want

  • Relax – Strive to achieve emotional relaxation
  • Recognize – Know that you are surrounded by a Higher Power which is wise and all-knowing. Understand that it can solve any problem you have.
  • Realize – Know that you are an extension of this power, and you possess its qualities.
  • Reason – You must have a clear purpose.
  • Release – Stop worrying about the outcome, and trust that the Higher Power is working through you to bring what you want.

7 Powerful Lessons from Michael Singer’s Book: The Untethered Soul

7 Powerful Lessons from Michael Singer’s Book: The Untethered Soul

Michael Singer’s book, The Untethered Soul, provides advice that will help you attain inner peace, know who you are, and be happy regardless of your circumstances. I really loved the book because it enabled me to know how the voice in my head works.

There are many lessons from the book, but I’ll only share with you seven major lessons.

Enjoy:

1. You Are Not The Voice In Your Head

‘There is nothing more important to true growth than realizing that you are not the voice of the mind, you are the one who hears it.’ – Michael Singer: The Untethered Soul

By advising us that we are not the voice in our heads, Michael Singer aims at making us think about who we truly are. Moreover, he aims at making us realize that the voice in our heads cannot cause stress if we know that we are separate from it.

2. Much of What the Inner Voice Says About the Future is Useless

Much of what the inner voice says about the future is useless because life seldom unfolds in accordance with the voice. The sun will continue rising and setting regardless of what the voice says, and life will happen in accordance with greater unimaginable forces regardless of what you think about it.

3. Free Yourself From the Mind and You’ll Be Free of Problems

The main source of our problems is our mind because it overanalyzes the past and the future. For this reason, freeing ourselves from the mind by refusing to emotionally attach to its chatter frees us from our problems.

4. Change is Part of Life

 ‘Life is continuously changing, and if you’re trying to control it, you’ll never be able to fully live it.’ – Michael Singer: The Untethered Soul

Change is part of life because things will change whether you like it or not.

The best way to deal with change is to accept it by realizing that it leads to personal growth. If you resist change, you’ll never live fully because you’ll always worry when the unexpected happens or when you think about the possibility of change in the future.

5. Learn to Embrace Pain

If you want to be truly free, you must make peace with pain instead of avoiding it. You must learn to embrace inner pain by realizing that it’s a temporary experience.

Therefore, instead of running away from experiences that can bring inner pain, try to face them and deal with the pain, and it will eventually disappear. By dealing with the pain, you’ll grow because you’ll stop avoiding everything – e.g. failure, rejection, perseverance – that brings pain.

6. You Must Do This if You Want to Be Happy

If you want to be happy, you don’t have to read scriptures or renounce the world. Instead, you must decide to be unconditionally happy, that is, you must decide to be happy with your life regardless of your circumstances.

7. Contemplate Death

‘Learn to live as though you are facing death at all times, and you’ll become bolder and more open.’ – Michael Singer: The Untethered Soul

Contemplating death is important to us because it enables us to detach ourselves from the part of us that is unwilling to let us live to the fullest. Besides, knowing that you are going to die will make you want to live in the present moment because you’ll realize that constantly thinking about the future is foolish since the future is unguaranteed.

Conclusion

I believe you’ve gained powerful insights from Michael Singer’s book. You must read the book to learn more valuable lessons.

The Vegetable Man, the Animal Man, and the Natural Man: The Ancient Secret Wisdom of the Kabbalah

The Vegetable Man, the Animal Man, and the Natural Man: The Ancient Secret Wisdom of the Kabbalah

The Kabbalah was a school of thought – in Jewish mysticism – that wanted its members to achieve oneness with the Creator. As well, it encouraged members to discover their full potential and live a fulfilling life. However, it was hidden from the public, and only a few individuals understood its teachings.

For this reason, great authors, for example, Shimon Halevi, have tried to simplify the Kabbalah so that we understand its secret esoteric teachings. In his book, The Way to Kabbalah, Shimon explains the Kabbalah’s teachings in a simple way.

Although the book has several teachings, I loved the teachings about the vegetable man, the animal man, and the natural man, and something forced me to share them with you.

The vegetable man, as Shimon puts it, ‘is any individual that aims at living a secure and regular life with minimal disturbance from outer and inner worlds.’ He dwells at the vegetable level of existence since he is mainly concerned with excreting, reproducing, eating, resting, and breathing. This man chooses the safest path and avoids risky paths because he yearns for security. For this reason, he will die in the city he was born, and he will adhere to his parents’ life plan.

On the other hand, the animal man is an evolved being. He has strong willpower and loves shaking the world with amazing discoveries. Just like an animal that wants something, the animal man will ignore pain so that he achieves his objectives. Moreover, he possesses high levels of perseverance and determination, and as Shimon writes, ‘he has an objective beyond comfort and pleasure.’  This man creates empires and uses his dreams to change the world.

Both the animal and vegetable man have big dreams. The main difference between them is that the animal man fights for his dreams, while the vegetable man chooses security over going through the risky and competitive path of dream chasing.

The natural man possesses the powers of the animal and the vegetable man. He is a powerful being, for he has power over both living and non-living things. Shimon refers to him as ‘The Spearhead of organic life.’ This man knows that he creates his own reality, and understands that the Spirit of God dwelleth in him.

Human beings are destined to be natural men. We were created to rule the earth and gain dominion over everything. Also, we were put here to develop our spiritual, physical, and mental powers to their full potential so that we become gods on this planet.

However, most people act like vegetable men. Although they want to develop into animal and natural men, they are afraid of the narrow path that leads to these states of being. They thus prefer a normal and less risky life. Eventually, they die wishing they worked on evolving into the animal and natural man because they realize that a normal life is a boring and an unfulfilling life.

PEACE BE WITH YOU

THE END
