We live in a world characterized by our thoughts and beliefs.
Please discuss. How does this play out in life?
I’ll start us out. Many of us are more uncertain of the future than we were a year or two ago. Events like the pandemic, social injustice, and clear political divisions have shaken us as individuals and society as a whole. Where might we be headed from here?
It all hinges on perception. How we experience the world as it currently is and where we sense things might lead us is predicated by our thoughts and beliefs. Wherever we place our attention and focus, our personal energy will flow. This will result in us finding what we look for.
Do we believe that society and politics are corrupt? We’ll encounter events to prove that in our daily life. Do we believe most folks are essentially good and that we can all find a way to cooperate? Happenings will arise in our day-to-day existence to support that belief.
Today’s message advises me to examine and tweak my beliefs to be in line with what I wish to see in life. I will find what I focus on, so it’s important for me to believe in, think about, and look for things that are healthy and will make me and others happy. I can create my existence in support of a loving and sane world.
How about you? How do you see your thoughts and beliefs affecting your life and the world?
