I have been saying this for a long time, and mostly to myself:
“Everything is so mental.”
Maybe it’s because I’m the Cardinal air sign, the balanced Libra. Maybe it’s because I enjoy analyzing and getting to the bottom of things. Maybe it’s because I’m the world’s biggest bumbling idiot who can’t get out of his own way. Maybe at some point I was and still AM all those things. Maybe.
See what I mean? Ha, all jokes aside though, you are only made of the thoughts that consume your mind.
Until the day we can link our thought to purpose, there really is no intelligent accomplishment. The purpose of thought is to give man something to do.
This is the differentiating piece between humans and animals; animals run on instinct whereas we humans are literally mentally conscious of what we do in each moment, MOST of the time.
“Man is made or unmade by himself; in the armory of thought he forges the weapons by which he destroys himself,” says James Allen continuing, “thought and character are one, and as character can only manifest and discover itself through environment and circumstance, the outer conditions of a person’s life will always be found to be harmoniously linked to his inner state.”
We are anxious, so very anxious to improve our circumstances but so also so very anxious to not do anything to actually improve ourselves. This is where anxiety creeps in.
This is ‘harmonious’ with last weeks article in which we talked about being full of quality. You will never be paid more than what you deserve. This is also in our thought patterns. Our thought patterns make sure that what is thought comes to life. This is the energy that we receive from thought that becomes emotion/feeling, which is the precursor to action.
We do not attract what we want, we attract what we ARE.
Man is typically fighting against his circumstances, when his circumstances are just an after effect of his inner thoughts. The soul attracts what it harbors, that which it secretly loves and that also which it fears.
We must remember that it is impossible for good thoughts and actions to produce bad results. This is the same as the law that it’s impossible for bad thoughts and actions to produce good results.
- Thoughts will always seek to manifest
- You make your circumstances, not the other way around
- The overall quality of your thoughts is exactly the price of your character, and that’s exactly why you have or don’t have what’s in your life
- If you want to improve your circumstances, improve yourself
