Hello, and good morning. This is Dr. Rob, and it’s another awesome and amazing day in the universe: Sunday. It’s a sunny Sunday, a cold sunny Sunday with lots of white snow and single digits. I said the other day double digits, but they were negative double digits. What a beautiful day. I was listening to a book. I’m always listening to a book, an uplifting, positive, spiritual, guiding book. The 4:8 Principle, by Tommy Newberry. The 4:8 Principle comes from Philippians 4:8. It’s very powerful for us to focus on the good of each day. Our mind is always straying to go to something else. The challenge is to capture the thought that brings us right there. “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praiseworthy, meditate on these things.”
It is so natural for us to go right to the things of worry, fear, regret, and judgment. Yes, we look out and it’s usually a 30% chance of rain, rather than a 70% chance of sun. I always throw it out there: it’s a 100% chance of a good day, and 100% chance of good weather, and 100% chance of a good life, when you channel your thoughts toward things like the 4:8 principle. Every day, our focus is the practice of our thoughts, and we allow them just to take us wherever we go, and we are not so practiced in the words, “It’s a good day, a good thought, a good thing.” Keep that book, a pad, and write the things that you’re grateful for each and every day. This day, I am grateful for life, for love, for friendship, for family, for water, for air, for shelter, for my daily work, which is not work at all. It’s fun, enjoyable, a challenge to grow and learn and share each day. EMJR stands for “early morning joy ritual.” Tommy shared that. Just take fifteen minutes, first thing in the morning, kind of like Dr. Rob’s intentions every day. You start the day with an intention of your day. Remember, most of us are simply thinking, “Oh my gosh, I have to go to work. I’ve got to deal with these people. I’ve got to deal with these things. I’ve got all of these problems,” and we focus on the bad weather, the traffic, and our problems.
Death solves all of our problems. So, in fact, our problems are not really bad things; they are the gift of life and God everyday. Thank you, God, for this day, this moment, this person right in front of me, a oneness for all of us, children of God. The words are, “I love you. Please share with me how I may do better. I’m here to listen, to learn, to grow, to create with you.” Blessed we all be, in the simple step of the day of love. Read, write, share, and add that EMJR to the end of the day, just before you turn those lights down and close your eyes. Bring that state of enjoyment to a new moment. It’s all a dream, every day, every way, every moment, and every creative thing. In thy mind is where heaven lies. We are one together to share and enjoy, to blossom and create. The moment is now. Thank you, God, for this day, this moment, this now.
As I live in the best help, my career, and I enjoy every moment of the shifting, growing, and creating. My relationship with my loved ones is stronger than ever. And I live that purpose, filled with life. They are within each of us, because they are there now. If you can see the purpose of your day in perfection and love, say, “Thank you, God, for this day, this moment, this now.” This is Dr. Rob, sharing a few minutes, driving my car. Automobile University: listen to something while you’re driving that is going to be uplifting, positive, creative, growing, and driving you to do better. That’s my love. Enjoy this day, another awesome and amazing day in the universe.
