Today, let us practice taking greater responsibility for the thoughts we think. As we do, we will take greater responsibility for the life we live. When you think a thought, it is only you who is thinking it. Only you, through your focus on it, can increase this thought’s power — or through your choice not to focus on it, decrease its power. If you increase your focus on a thought, it becomes a bigger part of your day. 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 spend on a thought, that thought becomes a smaller part of your day. If you continue to spend less time thinking that thought, then it becomes a smaller part of your life. You control your participation in your experiences through the thoughts you give your energy to.
Today, let us remember that the thoughts we think color the world we see. If we desire to change the world we see, then we must first change the thoughts that we focus on and support. The thoughts we support with our time, focus and energy end up shaping and defining the life we live. Understanding this, let us no longer blame others for our experiences. Instead, let us take greater personal responsibility for healing our own mind, and by doing so, heal how we see and experience this world. Let us be grateful that, thanks to free will, we have the final choice about the thoughts we support, and thus the life we live. Let us be grateful that the amount of pain or peace we experience — that we once blamed others and this world for — is our responsibility and is now under our jurisdiction.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
