Responsibility for thinking

“Your circumstances may be uncongenial, but they shall not remain so if you only perceive an ideal and strive to reach it. You cannot travel within and stand still without.”

James Allen – As A Man Thinketh

Life will give us what we expect of it. Our attitudes toward the world and people will be reflected back to us in every aspect of our lives.

Life is not a zero sum game. In reality there is abundance available in the world and in our lives. It is our painful and fearful thoughts that lead us to believe in scarcity.

Our thoughts create the story of our life. We live out the story, the life script created in our minds. Unconscious thought creates a life program which is often painful and chaotic. Conscious thought creates choice of plan and purpose.

To begin to understand the nature of unconscious thought try this experiment, as you go about your daily tasks notice your thoughts. Consciously observe your thoughts as they occur.

As you notice the thoughts which seem to appear unbidden in your mind be aware of the content and what stories they create about you and your relationships with yourself, other people and the world.

Think conscious thoughts. Change your thoughts and change your life.
