For As A Man Thinketh......
For as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.
For us to start to consciously create the life of our dreams, we must take total responsibility for our lives. And as we take full responsibility for what happens to us we discover that we create our lives by our thoughts. Everything on the outside is a reflection of what is happening on the inside. So many of the great teachers and writing of the past have told us that, from Proverbs 23:7 in the Bible to Buddha and more. Much of the greatest wisdom from the greatest teachers of our times have told us that our thoughts have power. Thoughts become things. Our thoughts create our lives.
Reality is really nothing more than what we believe it to be. Two people can experience the exact same thing yet they have complete different perceptions about it. My neighbor thinks the workers at the local grocery store are mean and rude. The neighbor on the other side thinks the people who work at the same grocery store are fun and wonderful. It's the same people. Who is right? Neighbor number 1 or neighbor number 2? Both and neither...Reality is based upon your own perception and that's all. Your life and the reality of your life is what you perceive it to be, nothing more.
Think about it, if our minds are filled with contention and strife that is what we experience. If our minds are filled with happiness and joy then that is what we experience. If our minds are filled with thoughts of prosperity, that is what we create. If our minds are filled with thoughts of poverty, that is also what we create.
What do you want to experience in your life? You can control it, yet we all know that controlling our thoughts is often not an easy task. So often, unwelcome thoughts pop into our heads unbidden and unexpected.
Yet we need to turn those thoughts around. Our thoughts are literally our lives. Our reality doesn't exist without our thoughts to give it form. Thoughts become things. Think the good thoughts!
