Words of Wisdom
There has been lots of talk over the years about “The Secret.” Some think it’s “hoo hoo” (i.e. a bit out there) and some live and breathe it.
But at the core of it, I do firmly believe that what you put out into the universe will come back to you ten-fold. I do firmly believe that if you think positively then you’ll attract positivity, and if you think the worst; well, then that’s what you’ll bring forth to you and your life.
So, this quote from Buddha is everything to me. Because our thoughts truly have that much power over us. Isn’t that crazy to think about?
Something as simple as a “thought” is actually not so simple at all. It’s actually complex and more in depth than meets the eye.
Your thoughts are so important. And it’s not just as simple as saying a statement to yourself; it’s actually feeling it.
Because that then leads to your feelings coming to life. If you think one thing and then feel one thing, well that one thing, in one way or another, is bound to happen. And this isn’t an instant thing as in Ooh I just thought about x, y, or z, and now I’m totally feeling it, and now it’s going to happen. Dial it back just a bit because it takes time, so don’t give up the second it doesn’t happen.
And, finally, when you imagine and daydream about something enough, you’re going to eventually create it in one form or another. So if you are constantly thinking and feeling woe is me, and then you proceed to imagine your “woe is me” life, well then you’re always going to live a “woe is me” life.
If you want a happy life, then think, feel, and imagine a happy life whether you’re currently in that state or not.
Use your powerful thoughts to your advantage! Think of it as an incredibly wonderful gift; the power of thinking, and how much it can really be a great thing.
