++++ Thinking

"He can who thinks he can, and he can't who thinks he can't. This is an inexorable, indisputable law."
                        -Pablo Picasso

What happens to your thoughts after you think them? We all regurgitate the "positive thinking" rhetoric, but I really wonder if people know just how true it is.Your thoughts can kill you. OR they can allow you to live a healthy relatively happy life. Once we know and understand the power our minds hold everything would change.

I hate it when people constantly complain about their "bad" situation. They dwell on all the crappy things that keep happening to them. They incessantly recap their pains and sorrows, and never fail to remind you how much bad luck they have, or how they would never find a mate, or a job. Just Stop!

Think of your thoughts as seeds that can grow and blossom or infect and fester. Negativity is cancerous, it attaches itself to your surroundings and grows and attracts more negativity,what you think influences how you live.

 I believe that our thoughts and words hang over our heads like stars or a cloud that follows us around all day. They soak into our walls and into our furniture; they cling to our belongings and even to our very selves. They occupy our spiritual space, and they are catalysts for the events in our lives. It’s a simple equation really. Thoughts turn into words that turn into action, (it is a cycle) and the one rule that will forever hold true in our universe is Newtons Third Law of Motion: for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

No force means no acceleration, nothing is random there is always a reason, and the fuel that pushes us through our lives is often our thoughts. 

It is the reason why the pen is mightier that the sword, why the spoken word is so dangerous, because they can plant thoughts that blossom and grow ……. or fester. We must be careful of the thoughts that we harbor about ourselves and about the people around us. Thinking positively is not a meaningless cliche. It could be the difference between happiness and despair. What your college professor said is really true “Attitude IS everything”, and perspective makes all the difference.

Control your thoughts and you can, for the most part, control your life. And I admit, IT IS  easier said than done, it takes practice and a certain level of spiritual discipline and consciousness where you are always aware of who you are, where you are, of who is around you and of what they bring with them, because poison can come in many forms.

This awareness isn't something that we have to learn, but rather something we have to awaken and tap into, because it’s already there. You can put it like this; there are taunt strings attached to us and when we think, and when we do, the vibrations go out into the universe. They certainly have an effect on our lives and the greater the thoughts (i.e; the more you think them), the greater the force, the greater the influence.

I say let us influence positively our own existence and the lives of others. But we must start with our thoughts.
