The thought manifests as the word;
The word manifests as the deed;
The deed develops into habit;
And habit hardens into character;
So watch the thought and its ways with care,
And let it spring from love
Born out of concern for all beings…
As the shadow follows the body,
As we think, so we become.
Most of us have heard of the book (and audio/video) The Secret – the law of attraction, the saying, “what we think about comes about”, and the dozens of other books and teachings on creating our world. This is that…written 2,500 years ago! Timeless wisdom.
Making a strong decision to focus our thoughts on what we want instead of what we don’t want begins this process.
Easy call to action – get a pen and a piece of paper and take a half hour to write down what you want your life to be like. Write it in as much detail as possible. It doesn’t matter what it is and it is only for you to see (unless you want to share it) – it is your life and your vision. Just write it down! Then, take a minute every day to read it. Every day. That’s it!!
Thinking about it will start you talking about it (word), then you will start doing things that are consistent with it (deed), then you get used to it and start repeating those things (habit), then it starts to become who you are (character)!
It may sound too easy, but it isn’t. It may sound like some kind of magic…it is! If we do this, things “magically” happen that will bring us the life we want!
It has happened for us! Do this and it will happen for you! It is irresistible! Go get it! 🙂
