Daily Inspiration: May 14. Taking Greater Personal Responsibility for the Thoughts We Think – Condensed Version
Today, let us practice, taking greater personal responsibility, for the thoughts that we are thinking, and thus for the life we are shaping and creating. When you are thinking a thought within your mind, it is only you who are thinking it. It is only you who can through your focus on it increase this thought, or through your choice not to focus on it, decrease it. If you increase a thought, that thought becomes a bigger part of your day, and if you continue to think that thought, then it becomes a bigger part of your life. If you decrease the amount of time that you place on a thought, that thought becomes a smaller part of your day, and if you continue to decrease thinking that thought, then it begins to become a smaller part of your life. It is you who shape your experience through the thoughts you think.
Today let’s take greater responsibility for the thoughts we think by doing six things: First, we do not judge ourselves when we are once again fueling the ego’s judgment based mindset. Second, we practice catching ourselves quicker when we are using judgmental thoughts. Third, through forgiveness, we practice letting judgmental thoughts go. Fourth, we become aware that the quicker we catch ourselves, the less time we spend in supporting the ego’s mindset, the smaller part of our life it becomes. Fifth, we practice remembering that we have final say over the thoughts we think, and thus how we end up experiencing and participating in this world. Sixth, we offer gratitude, not judgment, to everyone who today is helping us practice taking greater responsibility for the thoughts we think.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
