When jolly & melancholy volley

When jolly
And melancholy
Volley
For your mind,
Grab the jolly,
Not the melancholy.

To narcissize
Your thinking
Is to minimize
Your happiness.

Our emotions give us feedback that tells us how well we are managing our thoughts, desires, and behaviors.

Thinking can be great fun if you move beyond critical analysis and begin to ponder yourself into a state of wonder.

Inspiring thoughts will make you much happier than tormenting thoughts. If you search you can find inspiration all around.

When you’re locked in confusion and logic doesn’t help, open your heart and read something inspirational.

Your inner IT system: Your brain is the hardware; your mind is the software; and you are the programmer.

An unmonitored mind picks up much malware that distorts it and displays many disruptive pop-ups.

Pride causes us to be unaware of our unworthiness and makes us believe that it’s unnecessary that we be forgiven.

We’re usually ungrateful for good things we think we deserve, but grateful when we believe they’re undeserved.

Simple acts and words of kindness can revitalize someone’s weary heart.

A lack of warmth (genuine heart-connection) between people leads to many relational problems.

When people are unkind
It’s because
They’re allowing
Negativity in their mind.

We don’t need
To change geography
In order to be
Internally free.

Let Jesus
Lighten your load
And enlighten the road.

Christian mysticism isn’t mythical. It’s clear vision that comes from God’s aha moments that reveal internal and eternal reality.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
