Thought and Character…
“A Man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts.”
“As the plant springs from, and could not be without, the seed, so every act of a man springs from the hidden seeds of thought, and could not have appeared without them.
“Man is always the master, even in his weakest and most abandoned state; but in his weakness and degradation he is the foolish master who misgoverns his “household.” When he begins to reflect upon his condition, and to search diligently for the Law upon which his being is established, he then becomes the wise master, directing his energies with intelligence, and fashioning his thoughts to fruitful issues.
“He that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.”
~ James Allen
“There is no such thing as luck. Nothing ever happens by chance. Everything, good and bad, that comes into your life is there as the result of unvarying, inescapable Law. Consciously or unconsciously you have yourself at some time or other produced every condition desirable that you find in either your bodily health or your circumstances today. You and you alone ordered those goods; and now they are being delivered. And as long as you go on thinking wrongly about yourself and about life, the same sort of difficulties will continue to harass you.
“For every seed inevitably brings forth after its own kind, and thought is the seed of destiny. Learn how to think rightly instead of wrongly, and conditions at once begin to improve until, sooner or later, all ill health, poverty, and inharmony must disappear.
“Such is the Law.”
~ Emmet Fox
- Let us be mindful of our thoughts. Even in moments of despair let us consciously practice replacing negative thoughts with neutral or positive thoughts.
