When things get a bit out of whack in my thinking and I am in a bit of a quandary the phrase, “As a man thinketh, ” flashes in my mind. I am then reminded the erratic winds of fate and fear do not control the situation, I do through my thoughts, beliefs and concepts.
I ask myself, “Who rules? The outer or the inner?” Without question it is always the inner. If I opt to give power to the outer to control me, for some reason or another, I will suffer the consequences from giving my power away. Having done this in the past, more times than I care to remember, it was a long and hard road to travel with wailing and gnashing of teeth. Important to remember; listen to that still small voice within for guidance!
There are times we temporarily let fear come in and wreak havoc. Not a good feeling. When we acknowledge the fear, stare it in the face and send it packing we take back our power. Had this happen recently. Once I realized what I was allowing to control my thoughts, I confronted the fear and sent it packing from my mind and life. Afterward I did some meditation work to get back on track. The inner is always stronger than the outer.
As we come to understand our inner power, accept, and acknowledge that our words, thoughts and beliefs when backed with emotion and enthusiasm come to pass; we can change the situation and move forward with a joyous heart and calm mind to our success in life.
Moving forward is about recognition of self. It is about self-empowerment.
As Ernest Holmes so aptly stated, “Our every thought creates.”
