Your Thoughts Are A Powerful AssetJul 24, 2022
Our thoughts are our most powerful assets. What we believe about ourselves, each other, and the world creates our reality.
I used to think this was cliché, and yet the more I experience life and realize my constant choices in how I think, and perceive the world, the more I see it as profound truth.
Robert Fulghum said “Don’t believe everything you think.”
Not believing everything you think requires you to be aware that you ALWAYS have choice in your thoughts.
I am getting better at the practice of finding alternative ways to think about things these days. It's not always easy or beautiful, but it’s helping me grow and ultimately find more peace about situations that would have been way more challenging for me in the past.
Here are some eloquent words about this possibility:
"To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness.
What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something to change it for the better. If we remember those times and places—and there are so many—where people have behaved magnificently, this gives us the energy to act, or at least the possibility to send this spinning top of a world in a different direction.
And if we do act, if even in a small way, we don't have to wait for some grand utopian future. The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory." Howard Zinn
When we choose our thoughts, we are empowered to live a more expansive, present and authentic life.
What is your experience with re-directing, re-imagining, re-framing, and befriending your thoughts?
