A Series of Thoughts on the Power of the Mind, Part 3


“Our life is the creation of our mind.”

–Buddha

To close out this series, I am using the words of others to point out truisms–about the power of the mind–that have spanned all time. Look back to Part 1 and review the psychological laws. My hope is that you become aware of what you are attracting to yourself and that you use that awareness to improve your situation.

Through the power of your mind.

 The Law of Attraction is a universal law that says all your thoughts, positive and negative, vibrate at a certain frequency and like attracts like.  In other words, you get what you ask for – the frequency of your thoughts attract things to your life vibrating at the same frequency.  This happens whether you are conscious of it or not.

“Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear,  do not sit home and think about it. Get out and get busy.”

–Dale Carnegie

“If you change your thoughts, words, actions, and your attitudes, your mind will update its rules according to the data it has gathered.”

–Susan Gray, author of the book Turn Your Thoughts into Money

Watch your thoughts; they become words.

Watch your words; they become actions.

Watch your actions; they become habits.

Watch your habits; they become character.

Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

The laws of psychology teach, if you want to change your world, change your mind set.

 I can explain it to you, but I can’t understand it for you.

Thanks, Asklotta, for giving me a “nice” remark to replace my old, impolite saying: “There’s no help for stupid.”  Your words are much kinder. Since kindness, even in the face of self-selected ignorance, is my goal, I appreciate the help. Hugs.

My Cup Runneth Over


When I was young, the phrase “my cup runneth over” was commonly used to describe the moments when one didn’t think one could be any happier, any more content, any richer in life’s blessings.

After several days of bathing in the outpourings of support from you, who mean a lot to me, I am glowing from the inside, radiating on the outside. Beaming.

Forgive my indulgence in saccharine, but I feel candy coated, seeing the world through rose-colored rock candy crystals. It is uncommon, atypical, a-few-times-in-a- lifetime  that I feel this good. Normally when this level of optimism hits, I would take cover and look for the sky that is about to fall on me. But not today.

Instead, I am licking my milkshake moustache, chewing my bubble gum to the last nth of flavor, slurping the hot fudge from the side of the sundae glass, and sucking melted M & M’s from my fingertips. It’s an Ed Ames kind of moment. I am going to roll in it and carry the scent home.
