The circumstances in which a man finds himself does not determine who the man is. Each situation he encounters gives him the opportunity to test himself and see whether his thoughts are divisive, self-serving, and mean-spirited or kind, loving, and virtuous. I believe that the man whose thoughts are focused on what is kind, loving and virtuous will live out their lives ineffective actions that are overflowing with the fruits that come from a good spirit.
Each of us is connected to the Great I Am through our thoughts. Our thoughts are the most powerful of tools as they empower us to do good or evil. We are made up of thoughts, we are not robots(unless we choose to be), but thinkers who have a free choice in every matter concerning our lives. We and we alone are the authors all of our thoughts. With each thought serving as the cornerstone of most everything, we can imagine into existence.
When we find ourselves not obtaining our hearts desires and thwarted at every step, it’s usually because we have not put much thought into what we are trying to achieve. When we think about and focus on our desires and live as if they had already been granted, we automatically lift ourselves out of every earthly quagmire and set ourselves up to feast on our fulfilled desires.
The kingdom of God is within us and recognizing that we are divine son’s and daughter’s of the I Am helps us to have divine thoughts which culminate in holy actions and divine ends. Our prayerful and humble recognition of who we are in Christ frees us from our self-imposed bondage, enabling us to think noble thoughts which in turn enable us to bring about physical demonstrations of healing, health, kindness, and love, in our world.
So, it’s not what we wish for that we get; but we get what we think about the most, as the thoughts we focus on the most, are the ones that come alive and form up in the physical realm. Having this understanding enables us to take responsibility for our thought life and what happens in our lives. We truly do have divine responsibility for our thought life as our thoughts can bring about pain and suffering or peace and love.
When our thoughts, prayers, and desires are manifested in harmony with our Christ Consciousness, we find ourselves experiencing the peace of God, as we’re no longer bound by conscious or unconscious thoughts that thwart our ability to manifest the righteous desires of our hearts.
All of us want better lives, but how many of us are willing to change ourselves, do what it takes to improve ourselves and the lives of those among us? When we improve and change ourselves, it sometimes means giving up the person who we thought we were. It sometimes means having to crucify our egos, dying to our earthly desires.
So, today we seek to improve our circumstance, not by changing the world and people around us, but by changing our own thoughts about who we are and how we can be loving, kind and generous to ourselves as well as to each person who comes into our lives. It’s my opinion that for myself, I must be willing to give up who I believe I am and die to my little earthly self so my eternal spiritual self can reflect the I Am’s divinity that is within me and makes up who I really am.
