The Brilliance of MIND
There is always a knowing within me that even my life trials and frustrations were placed in my path in a purposeful way. When I reflect on my life now, it is through the eyes of self love for the benefit of all humanity, starting first with myself.
“You have at the power within you to rise above whatever is currently seeking to bring you down.”
Who inside of me decided to allow myself to get down? Am I the creator of that thought? Of COURSE I am! When we meditate, we try to clear that mind of unwanted thoughts or images and listen for the beauty of our soul residing in stillness. It is a power we have, living inside of us waiting for us to take control. “Change my thoughts, change my life”. Those words by Dr. Wayne Dyer still resonate in memory, stored in my brain from many years of listening to them, echoed by so many voices since that time.
I loved the way that Michael Singer expressed exactly how we can understand just how powerful our mind really can be if we use it.
“Mind is really the first personal computer. In fact, it is so personal that it doesn’t need any external form. Its display screen is inside, its computing and graphics capability are inside, and you don’t need a keyboard, mouse or voice recognition to communicate with it. It is so close to you that it responds to your will and the slightest impulse from your heart.” ~ Michael A Singer Pg. 52 Living Untethered: Beyond the Human Predicament
Think about that…”the slightest impulse from your heart.” So when we are experiencing miracle moments in life or in deep meditation our mind allows that totally blissful experience to show up on the screen of our consciousness. We put it there.
When we look out at the life around us and see heartache…that also shows up on the screen of our consciousness. In a way, I think we imprint our thoughts, good or bad onto that screen. Does that mean that we ignore our feelings of sadness or despair? I don’t think that is helpful.
But, can we allow ourselves to feel them fully, and then reshape them?
As I sat here writing, I closed all of my books and went inside my own mind to experience any feelings I might be having. Instead of inspiration arriving…the love from within and reminders of the unconditional love of GOD for every human being surfaced. The LIGHT within emerged in its beauty. The thought arose that I need to SHARE that love, give it away along with my smile, surrounded by light and my love and zest for life! It is in that giving of ourselves to others that we experience that inner peace we so desire.
Is it the LOVE of God from within that can reshape our thoughts?
How CAN we reshape negative thoughts and experiences? We can do it with the miracle of our brilliant mind! WE are the creators, God works through US! We were designed to create! Can you imagine a GOD so amazing that each of us has the ability to create using our imagination to reshape thoughts we no longer want.
- We experience grief, and yet we can reshape our thoughts to transcend the grief into happiness that a person is no longer suffering and experiencing bliss.
- We experience sadness, and yet we can reshape our thoughts to transcend the sadness into hope for newness of life in ourselves.
- We experience selfishness around us, and yet we can reshape our thoughts into selfless acts to lift the life of another person.
- We experience judgement & feelings of superiority to any of God’s beautiful beings, and yet we can reshape our thoughts into actions of LOVE towards those who have been hurt by others.
- We experience hateful acts, and yet we can reshape our thoughts living with compassion for those who hate. They don’t realize that LOVE lives within them.
WOW…yes we have a brilliant and powerful MIND!
ALLOW the DIVINE LOVE within you to be shared with a world that needs every one of us to share it! We ARE the LIGHT and LOVE…of GOD.
