Ty Using His Resources

Ty is Ty. He is a beautiful, exotic cat. It doesn't matter how sweet he is or tame he may appear, he is a wild cat by nature. Unfortunately, the family who bought him from a breeder thought he would be perfect for their child. The family believed some generalizations about wild cats that did not give them the experience they wanted. As a result, Ty will now spend his natural life enclosed in an unnatural environment.

Ty wants to share how he perceives his experience with you. Come rest with him under his favorite palmetto bush and close your eyes. Take a deep breathe and relax. Ty asks a question-Do you think of generalizations being good or bad? This is important because we give meaning to everything we believe. We then take the meaning and respond to it which gives us the experiences we have in life. If we are not experiencing the life we want, we can change the generalizations in the way we think of them. Instead of good and bad, Ty perceives generalizations and beliefs as resources.

In other words, is this generalization or belief going to manifest the results I want? Is it resourceful to me or not? An easy way to discern what your generalizations or beliefs are is look at the results you have created in your life right now. The family believed Ty would make a good pet. If this belief had produced the results they wanted, Ty would not live at Big Cat Rescue. Their belief was not resourceful to them. It was not resourceful for Ty either. Think of beliefs and generalizations as resources instead of good or bad to assist you in creating the life you want. Ty knows this will change your life because it did his. Send a heart thought thanking Ty for sharing with you a new way of understanding resources.
