I've Been Thinking...

"There is no more self-contradictory concept than that of "idle thoughts." What gives rise to the perception of a whole world can hardly be called idle.  Every thought you have contributes to truth or to illusion; either it extends the truth or multiplies illusions . . . There are no idle thoughts. All thinking produces form at some level." -A Course in Miracles

The laws of the Universe or of creation are as indiscriminate and powerful as the laws of physics. They don't care who you are, they just work. Gravity doesn't discriminate, it applies to everyone. Every thought you think, every emotion you give power to and dwell upon has power. The good news is that you can change the course of your life in an instant. Don't like your life or the circumstances you've created? - Change your thoughts. Start by concentrating on things that make you happy and feel good. We have thousands of thoughts each day - it's just the ones that we focus on, make a story out of and give power to that become habitual ways of thinking. Feel your way into a better feeling thought by focusing on what's going right, what's working and imagining your dreams as being true right now. It takes a lot of work to lead an effortless life, in the beginning, because you are training your mind. It gets easier because you become more mindful and because it starts to feel better. Release the mind chatter and the underlying thoughts that make you feel bad - the little day to day annoyances - and choose a better feeling thought right now. It will change your life.
