Do You Swear to Tell the Truth and Nothing But the Truth? New Thought Sunday Message 9/19/10

How do you really see yourself?

“The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge; the ears of the wise seek it out.” Prov. 18:15

(I found this little quiz somewhere about five years ago—don’t remember where, or who composed it. But if you are the constructor of it and you find this here, my heartfelt thanks. And please let me know who you are so I can give you full credit.)

Anyway, if you were to be completely honest with yourself, how would you answer the following questions?

  • Your doctor calls and tells you that in exactly six months, you will die a peaceful death due to some weird virus. How would you spend the time?
  • An unknown relative dies and leaves you two million dollars after taxes. When you come out of shock, what will you do with the money?
  • If you knew you couldn’t fail, what three endeavors would you attempt and why?
  • What do you want more of in your life? Why?
  • What do you want less of? Why?
  • How do you compromise your principles to gain acceptance? (You have, you know. Be honest…)
  • If you put your life on trial, how would you fare overall, especially if you were the prosecuting attorney? (There’s been a lot of judgment in your life so why not a trial, eh?)

Two things: If you choose to take this little quiz, be as honest as possible. And don’t show this to anyone else. It really is between you and the universe—like it’s always been.

As you may have guessed, the point of all this is to get you to open up to yourself, to discover why you’re doing what you’re doing and not what you say you want to do. Remember, wherever you put your energy, your time, and your money is where you really want to be. Or you’d put it all somewhere else.

“You can’t turn back the clock; but you can wind it up again.” Bonnie Pruden
