Emerson: We can only see what we are…(page51)
This may be the best thing you’ve read all year and I hope that it will help you in 2017: What you think is the master of your life. If you think thoughts of peace, love, health, and prosperity you will attain just that. If you think thoughts of fear, anger, illness, and hate that is what you will manifest in your life.
It is time that we get over blaming our parents, our upbringing, our teachers, our genes, and life for the situation we are in today. Yes, they affected us in a myriad of ways but as adults it is our opportunity to forgive and forget. To create a new life that is filled with goodness and love. To create the life that we want to live instead of letting others or the past have power over us!
I read an article many years ago in a Unity publication about a woman who had a terrible childhood and so her adult life was filled with lack and limitation in all areas. Then one day she decided to recreate her life and she began slowly by remembering one good thing that happened to her as a child. She focused on an aunt who was kind and loving and shared that goodness with her. From there she discovered other memories that had been hidden and blocked by her anger and hatred. She began focusing on them and little by little her life turned around. She became a loving and compassionate person with success in all areas of her life.
She began to really be what she was born to be a happy, healthy, loving person regardless of her past circumstances. She began to succeed in all areas of her life and it was filled with peace, love, prosperity, and happiness. Life is like the script of a Broadway play. Some scenes are dramatic and scary others are filled with music, dance, and love. What is your script reading like today? Will you create a new script for 2017? Or will you keep playing the same drama over and over? How about writing a musical filled with fun and laughter and love?
You are what you think the Buddha said. He also said our thoughts make the world. Let’s create a world, from today forward, that is filled with peace, love, and compassion for self and all others! Do not be like the blind leading the blind—be like the knowing leading the knowing! Follow The Eightfold Path above and watch what happens!
See what you truly are—a perfectly divine, loving, healthy, prosperous you!
