Perhaps you’ve heard the saying “thoughts are things,” or that we have 60,000 thoughts a day. There have been scores of books written on the nature of life, on how our brains work, on the subject of positive thinking and on the subject of healing. I don’t claim to have read them all by any means, but given my lifelong quest for meaningful answers about life, I’ve read many. I have also listened to more than my fair share of books on tapes.
Ultimately, life all tends to boil down to this: As you ask, and feel, and believe, you will receive.
As I mentioned in my last post, several years ago Rhonda Byrne made a movie called “The Secret” wherein she capsulized all the most important teachings of history. They all boil down into that statement. In her book, with the help of others, she shows us how to solve all our problems (health, wealth, relationship, etc.), through the application of these principles. Ask, really feel having it, believe it to be already yours, and you will be given what you ask for. Anything.
In addition to the movie, there is a book version and the soundtrack to the movie on CD. I have all 3 versions. I think I’ve only watched the movie once, but I refer to the book often (it’s a very nicely done publication, easy to handle and rich with style and content.) I keep the CDs in the car and listen to them often during long car rides.
It isn’t that there is anything new in her materials, in fact, she goes back to the beginning of recorded history. What has happened to me, is that with the aid of these materials, and the presentation she has given them, I finally got it! As I have mentioned, it isn’t that I didn’t know these things before, I did. I’m familiar with all the concepts. I’ve used many of these techniques my whole life, but I didn’t truly GET it until just a few years ago, and I “flipped” my switch.
It REALLY matters how you think, and what you think about.
Till next post – wishing you happiness and health!
