We who desire to create our lives deliberately–through a better and wiser understanding of the Law of Attraction–realize that what we manifest is directly connected to what we’re thinking. We accept this as truth. It’s logical. Evolution, we realize, is best accomplished through greater awareness of what is going on in our mind. We also realize that to manifest more effectively, we must govern how we think, feel, speak, and act.
Knowing this, we choose what we will think. Just as we wouldn’t nonchalantly toss our car keys to a madman and say “Drive it as you please” we, likewise, don’t let our mind drive us. We are in the driver’s seat. We drive. We choose, deliberately, to focus upon our favourable habits of mind, and let negative habits fall away. One such negative habit–overlooked by many–is that of worry. Most people may view it as an almost harmless pastime, but it is far from it. A scripture about Job–who as we may know suffered incredible trials and tribulations–may shed more light on the subject. From the King James Bible (Job 3:25): For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.
The best explanation regarding the subject of worry that I know came to me via a daily email from Abraham Hicks, which is well known in the Law of Attraction community. The following is not a quote but relates the gist of the message: When you’re thinking, you’re planning. And when you’re worrying, you’re also planning. Can you see the truth of this? When we’re thinking, we’re deliberately applying our mental focus toward a certain goal. We may be thinking about an upcoming trip, a business venture, a home we’d like to build, or even a romantic interest. In such a case, the subject of our thought focus is positive–and the outcome desired. Conversely, with worry, the subject of our thought focus is negative–and the outcome undesired. The thoughts may be along these lines; I hope I don’t fail the exam. I hope I’m not late. What if I don’t have enough money? With both processes we’re applying creative effort–energy–toward a subject. Remember: All thought is creative. Worry serves no useful purpose at all. It is, in fact, against all of our best interests!
When we realize the power of our mind–and how it responds to our habitual thoughts–we will understand the importance of wisely choosing what we focus upon. The next time we hear someone say “You can worry about that later,” we’ll know there’s a wiser approach. In fact, we might even do as Henry David Thoreau shared through one of his greatest quotes: If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. There’s truth in those words.
Dare to dream.
