Wisdom Worth Remembering

Since we are thinking beings and cannot stop thinking, and since Creative Mind receives our thought and cannot stop creating, It must always be creating something for us. What It will make depends wholly upon what we are thinking, and what we shall attract will depend upon that which our thought dwells.....Every person is surrounded by a thought atmosphere. This mental atmosphere is direct rsult of his concsous and unconscioius thought, which, in turn its turn, becomes the direct reason for, and cause of, that which comes into his life.....As God's thought makes worlds, and peoples them with livng things, so our thought maeks our world and peoples it with our experiences. By the activity of our thought, things come into our life and we are limited only because we have not know the Truth....

Wisdom Worth Remembering

Often we don't realize that we have the ability to make a choice about what we think about. But clearly we do, as we are exhorted to set our mind on things above and not on earthly things (see Col. 3:2). The fact that we are told to set our mind means that we havve the ability to choose the things that our mind should focus on. This doesn't mean that negative thoughts won't enter our minds - if that were the case, there would be no need to consciously choose to set our minds on those thoughts of God. My point here is that our thoughts are ultimately determined by us.
