- You can trust in yourself to be a better person towards yourself. Only then would you have the ability to manifest outwardly the person you truly are.
- You must gain control of that which binds you to the physical through constant mental awareness and control those thoughts that lead you to a path of self destruction.
- Begin the process of vigilance of thought and actions through knowing the vehicle of right thought
- Hold true the faith you can find your true path. Only then may you enlighten others that they too have this inherent ability.
The idea of right thought comes from Buddhism but is found throughout all other religious teachings. Such as regard others as a higher stature then yourself, we are not covetous towards our neighbor’s belongings, believe your body to be a temple and protect it from ruin. With this faith can you become what you are meant to be, as there is a plan for all who hold this faith. Mind you I am paraphrasing, yet I am sure my point is made. These statements come from centuries old writings that some have come to be known as "The Secret". People like John Assaraf, Rev. Michael Beckwith, John Demartini, Bob Proctor, Jack Canfield, James Arthur Ray, Joe Vitale, Lisa Nichols, Marie Diamond, and John Gray. They are trying to say this is new thinking. However, these thought processes have been around since the onslaught of society. These teachings are found in or as the basic foundations of Martial Arts, Boxing, Baseball, football, Soccer. "What you believe you can achieve."
There is nothing new under the sun is a statement that comes to mind when I look at the information that has become the new age thinking. It is just repackaged for the modern day society that we are all a part of. Yes, I became a certified practitioner on the "Laws of Attraction" just so I can talk about how this information has been right in front of us all along. We all know deep down that our thoughts guide our actions. It is nevertheless imperative then we wake up, so to speak, and smell the roses. What I want is for you, the reader, is an awakening. I want you to become aware of yourself and your surroundings. Find what makes your reality what it is and, if it is what you believe to be truly what you want then fine. If it is not what you truly want, then, the four statements of reflection can start you on the path to getting what you desire.
We can also begin the process with some reflective questions similar to the following;
What things do you think should be changed in your life at this moment in time.
- What keeps you from affecting this change
- What identifiers do you use for the things that need to change
- How will you know when these changes have been completed
- The above four questions along with the opening statements are here as a guide, as it were, for self reflection. Things to meditate on and just to get you thinking in terms of "Quality Control" of your life and how you want to live it. Until next time enjoy the day.
