Power Of The Mind
James Allen in his Book "As a Man Thinketh"says Mind is the Master power that moulds and makes, and man is mind and evermore he takes , The tool of thought, and shaping what he wills, brings forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills. He thinks in secret and it comes to pass.Environment is but his Looking Glass.
A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of his thoughts. Prof.William James points out 'The greatest discovery of our age is that man by changing the inner aspects of his thinking can change the outer aspect of his life.
Thoughts are powerful. Without thoughts there is no life. God has given you the power to think what ever you want in your life. Everything we created in this world good and bad began as a thought. Emerson said 'We are what we think all day long'.Solomon said 'As a Man thinketh so is he as he continues to think so he remains'.You are responsible for every thought because you pay the price. If you think good, good will follow, if you think evil, evil will follow.
James Allen says 'If a man's mind has evil thoughts pain comes to him as wheel the ox behind, If one has purity of thought joy follows him as his own shadow.Every thought is a cause and every condition is an effect. By changing your thoughts you can change your character and by changing your character you can change your destiny.Nothing controls from outside.Everything is controlled from inside of you.So start searching outside and start to search inside. Whatever happens to you is through your thought, so by changing your thoughts you can change your life once for ever.
Positive thoughts yield positive results-Joy, Happiness, Success, Prosperity, abundance, health etc.Negative thoughts yield negative results-unhappiness, pain, envy, Suffering, selfishness, hatred and jealousy.
If you persist in your thoughts of health and wealth, this produces a consciousness of health and wealth.An abundance of everything, Health, wealth, riches and happiness. Our thoughts produce our physical realtiy. Again James Allen Points out the Effect of thought on circumstances. A man's mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated, or allowed to run wild. But whether cultivated or neglected it must and will bring forth. If no useful seeds are put into it, then an abundance of useless weed seeds will fall therein, and will continue to produce their kind. Like a gardener who cultivates his plot keeping it free from weeds and growing flowers and fruits, so may a man tend the garden of his mind, weeding out of all the wrong and useless, and impure thoughts and cultivating toward perfection the flower and fruits of right, useful and pure thoughts.
Finally Allan wrote 'A man cannot directly choose his circumstances, but he can choose his thoughts, and so indirectly, yet surely shape his circumstances.
Whatever you want to do or what you experience right now is through your thought. So you can change your destiny. You are the Master of your fate. So breed good thoughts and fill your mind with positive and successful thoughts.
