Mastering Thought

When was the last time you were disappointed with how something turned out? Maybe your best friend’s party wasn’t much fun, or the meeting with the boss didn’t go well. Or maybe it’s just that there wasn’t anything good in your email inbox (not today, of course).
Here’s a trick to changing that: give your sheep – er, thoughts – some direction! Decide what you want and point that way.
You want a bank account that allows you complete freedom? Where are you herding those money thoughts? Are you worried about bills? Are you mad about being short changed on your last raise? Do you feel guilty for that $300 shopping-spree last weekend? That’s probably not where you want to go, right?
Training and discipline comes in handy as well. A regular meditation practice will help you learn to master you thoughts. Resources such as Rick Carson’s Taming Your Gremlin, Eckhart Tolle’s New Earth, and Byron Katie’s Loving What Is are excellent training manuals for learning your power to choose thoughts.
Make sure your thoughts and pointed in the direction you want to go. Because law of attraction guarantees you will go there. Your life always follows your thoughts!

    One thing that comes to mind with this one has come during times of what may seem to be intense pain. That pain associated with relationship.
    There have been times when my love was so great towards certain individuals yet the treatment I received was anything but kind. And in my mind I would still focus on the love I had and the intensity of it. And when I was alone in my private moment, then due to the intensity of that particular “torment” I would release forgiveness and express the fact that so-and-so does not know or understand. They are ignorant of their actions and the affects of their words. They are ignorant of the the reprocussions of their thoughts, words, and/or actions.
    And so to balance it out and ease the rebounding blow, I would pray God’s Rich Blessing upon them. And then I had a list of reasons as to why they are worthy of Blessing. Mainly because I love them so much and because they are a part of my life for a reason.
    Such has been my best way of release concerning individuals.
    As it turns out, what you give is in the end, what you receive. When you give peace, you get peace.
    When others intend to inflict harm, even on your own heart/psyche, it can be averted and changed.
    You never know how something as simple as true love will affect another, especially when it comes to the intent of YOUR HEART.
    There are those who want no contact with you and will go out of their way to prove it. However, you can still keep in contact by the most positive way available … by means of the heart in the prayer of perfect love, forgiveness, and blessing. The end resolve is abundant peace.

    While I have mastered this to a great extent with many an individual, there are times when it is more difficult than others. However, when you keep in mind that ALL THINGS ARE FOR YOUR
    BENEFIT AND WELFARE … and do not forget … it makes the greatest difference in your perspective.

    Sometimes it’s a bit different with regard to other things. In that case, it is a learning experience. And you must at times forgive yourself and accept that forgiveness. It is a must that you love yourself as much as you love others. After all, you are God of your world.
    We are commanded to love The Lord our God with all our heart, with all our soul, with all our mind, and with all our strenght. WE are also commanded to love our neighbor as ourself. Which means we are to love ourselves just as much as we love others. And in loving God we also above all, love ourselves. Why? Because we are The House of The Lord. We are The Temple of The Holy Spirit. We are The Body of Christ.
    Talk about POWER! We are so much more than we are taught. We are so much more than we are accustomed to BEING only because we were not taught this. But think about it and you will find that it is very true. Why else are we CREATED IN THE VERY IMAGE OF GOD? Does it not make sense to RULE OUR UNIVERSE? Why else do we have within us THE MIND OF CHRIST? Why else does HEAVEN RESIDE WITHIN US?
    Also according to PSALM 103:1 and PSALM 104:1 we literally speak a command to the very SOUL OF OUR EXISTANCE. WE speak and literally command BLESS THE LORD, O MY SOUL, AND ALL THAT IS WITHIN ME. BLESS HIS HOLY NAME. This speaks to everything about our LIFE, LIVING, AND BEING — and — IT IS A COMMAND.
    The Lord is King and Lord of Heaven and Earth. Even the host of Heaven declared it on earth to be so with the command, GLORY TO GOD IN THE HIGHEST (that’s heaven) AND IN EARTH (that’s us, for we are earth), PEACE, GOOD WILL TOWARD MEN!
    This one I would like to explain, but will leave for you to ponder.
    The greatest revelation to this is explained by The Golden Rule. DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM DO UNTO YOU. Why? Because, YOU ARE GOD OF YOUR UNIVERSE.
    How would you like for YOUR UNIVERSE to function? Giving glory to God or to hell? The choice is yours. Why not choose what is wonderful? Peace, Love, Joy, Wholeness, Completeness. These are virtues of true health, true wealth, true prosperity.
    This is the key to mastering thought. And as the saying goes… action always follows thought.
    So here it is, another reason to be careful what you say, for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.
    Speak great and pure things and that is what will manifest. Speak that which is rich in truth and love instead of deceit and hate. You want your world to be good, excellent, and perfect, right? Then, think on those things which are good, excellent, and perfect. They will always uplift you and the face of your life will manifest that expression, not the things you don’t want. And … thankfulness is a virtue that attains to all that is good, excellent, and perfect. Love is found in gratitude. Manifest true thankfulness, manifest true love, manifest true peace.
