Change the Way You Think 2

We can influence much in our life; people and to some degree also events. But what can we control? Nothing really other than our thoughts. Think about it. You see, even though I told you to think about it, you didn't really need to do what I told you. You could have thought about the weather instead, or about your work schedule, a movie that you saw or want to see. But you chose to think about what I told you. It was your choice and yours alone.
By the same token you can introduce pictures in your mind and not only thoughts. These pictures can be anything you like; in your mind you can see a mile high tree, or elephants with  pink ribbons around their necks. You can see yourself as being the emperor of China and you can think about how you would conduct your reign. And it does not matter one iota that this position no longer exists and hasn't existed for quite some time. You can think and you can see whatever you wish.
Of course this is something you knew anyway; I didn't give away any secrets by telling you. But do you realize how important it is? Do you know what you can do with it?
It is the foundation to my maxim Change the Way You Think and Change Your Life.

Let's explore this next time.

  1. Yes, thoughts are definitely the first step in the quest for self-realization.
    Glad you are a happy person. It is not a common virtue.
