This week’s MKE really hit home. What you think or feel is an indicator of what you are. Your “thought is energy; and energy is power” stated by Charles F. Haanel; which means what you think has the power to become your life.
For example, I am in the process of moving my mother and myself. My mother has lived in the same house for 43 years, so we have a lot of work ahead of us. It’s frustrating and overwhelming at times, to the point we both just want to stop, yet we can’t because it needs to be finished. I was allowing my frustrated thoughts to take over me… and then I read this week’s lesson. Haanel stated, “Most people allow their thoughts to dwell on selfish purposes, the inevitable result of an infantile mind.” That’s exactly what I was doing! I realized I can’t make headway dwelling on the frustration and allowing emotions to control me.
I needed to rid these thoughts and think positive to make the move happen. This week’s lesson advised during our sit we dismiss all negativity and focus on the positive. So that’s what I did. I began doing my sits and focusing on positive thoughts and my bliss. It’s harder to let go than I thought it would be. It’s so easy to fall back into my regular mindset and think of the frustration. I’m getting better at focusing on the positive; and it’s working! The moving is going faster and is not as frustrating. And instead of getting fed up, I’m finding solutions. It’s great!! I’m still a work in progress; however, I am seeing results which makes me want to work harder and stay in a positive state of mind.
