Quotable quotes are nothing more than flowery words… And anyone given enough time and cognitive power can put one together. Yes, they may strike a chord or make you feel good, but their true value resides in what they encourage and excite you to put into action. Ideas not followed by action have very little power.
Here is one for you: “Only that which is eternal has any true value.” Now you think about that quote and in some circles it might be considered pretty quotable. So does this mean that if this online message lasts for eternity that it has true value? Actually the author is attempting to convey something more profound (I happen to know him pretty well).
The only thing which is eternal (quotable or non-quotable) is that which lies within you — your spiritual core. This is your true identity and therefore anything that cannot stand the test of infinity is but a passing fancy. What does this have to do with quotable quotes? Well, a lot… hang with me.
If you are focusing on the infinite then you must take the action necessary to strengthen and escalate the Power of the Infinite within yourself. The next logical question may be, “Well, how do I increase this power within?”
All great teachers, sages and saints since time immemorial have told us in one way, shape or fashion that true wealth in your life comes quite simply from two things. You must constantly:
- Study, understand, and immerse yourself in that which brings you power.
- Avoid all that weakens you.
Unfortunately, you live in a world that will inundate you with that which weakens. Increasing your Infinite Self then becomes a matter of critical action; and here is where we tie this conversation into quotable quotes. The fact that you are alive in this century guarantees that you are highly exposed to negative input from the media, friends, school systems, family members and various other energy vampires.
Now while you may not find all of above factors as negative in your life, we can be pretty well assured that unless you avoid television, newspapers and magazines all together (something you might strongly consider), you have at minimum some negative energy to contend with. If you are barraged by negative media input on a daily basis you must actively seek input to the contrary just to stay at equilibrium.. much less get ahead of the energy game. Enter quotable quotes.
The infamous quotable quotes could indeed be a part of your action plan to offset negative input from other sources. Ultimately you will become that which you think about all day long, for thoughts breed action and actions breed results.
Read the quotes as well as other pieces of inspiration and power; and then most importantly…act boldly in accordance with this line of thinking and pull yourself from the quagmire of collective limitation. You were born into greatness but have been conditioned into mediocrity — and you can quote me on that one.
