Man is always the master, even in his weaker 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. Such is the
conscious master, and man can only thus become
by discovering
within himself the laws of thought; which discovery
is totally a matter of application, self analysis, and experience.

Holding the Key [Apr. 5th, 2005|10:42 pm]

eclectic_dreams
As a being of Power, Intelligence, and Love, and the lord of his own thoughts, man holds the key to every situation, and contains within himself that transforming and regenerative agency by which he may make himself what he wills.

Truth [Apr. 4th, 2005|09:03 pm]

Of all the beautiful truths pertaining to the soul which have been
restored and brought to light in this age, none is more gladdening
or fruitful of divine promise and confidence than this--that man is
the master of thought, the moulder of character, and the maker and
shaper of condition, environment, and destiny.

Daggers of Thought [Mar. 9th, 2005|09:54 pm]

I have a small, neat little dagger called "I Can't" that I use quite efficiently to cut and nip and snick many possibilities, chasing them away. Using the dagger to pierce through the heart of many hopes and many dreams.

I'll break the blade of that dagger and throw blade and hilt away.

Weapons or Building Tools [Mar. 9th, 2005|09:50 pm]

Man is made of unmade by himself: in the armory of though he forges the weapons by which he destroys himself. He also fashions the tools with which he builds for himself mansions of joy and strength and peace.

Seeds Of Thought [Mar. 8th, 2005|10:40 pm]

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. This applies equally to those acts called "spontaneous" and "unpremeditated" as to those which are deliberately executed.

Viewing difficulty differently [Mar. 8th, 2005|10:33 pm]

eclectic_dreams
Isn't interesting that sometimes when we accomplish something difficult, such as climbing a mountain, that we celebrate it so to speak? Perhaps exclaiming something like, "Woohoo! Look at what I did! I accomplished this really difficult thing!"

Yet other times upon accomplishing something difficult we focus solely on how haaaaard is was. "That was sooo difficult! Ugh!" And totally forget the celebratory part that we accomplished it even though it was so hard.

I caught myself doing that today. I was only focused on how hard the task was and because of that I was not looking forward to doing it again. Well, yeah it was hard and I was able to do it anyway! It is so Great that I was able to accomplish this! I am on top of the world!

A man is literaly what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts.

What have I been thinking? [Mar. 7th, 2005|10:40 pm]

I have really wanted to begin a deeper exploration of my thoughts. I have often thought that I felt pretty good about myself, fairly confident and comfortable in my own skin, and so on. But I've had to start to re-evaluate that because my actions seem to speak of a totally different story.

Would a person who really had a good, positive sense of self-worth do a lot of the things that I do? Put up with a lot of the crap that I do (and not from other people...I am only speaking of what I do to myself)?

For example, I have pretty much always worked low paying jobs where there is little or know chance for advancement. If I get deeply honest with myself I pretty much am always within what is considered a level of poverty. And I actually surprisingly don't think this is too bad a thing because I found I could be comfortable and content and happy...feel blessed by little things....EXCEPT that upon tracing back to what my thinking is I realize that the Reason why I work for so little money and at dead end jobs is because I have thought that I was not worth having a better job that I *truly* enjoyed and excelled at.

Success is not neccessarily money. But limiting yourself because you feel you do not deserve a job that will give one enjoyment...that is failure.

If I loved these jobs that paid so little I feel that would be fine. But the the actual thoughts behind why I work these jobs are so very different than that. So I feel compelled to change those thoughts so I can do what I truly feel I am capable and worthy of...and not just for myself, but so I can give and do more for others.

In the past I felt like the best thing I could do for others was to "get out of their way". I'd almost literally hide in a corner and not speak to anybody because I felt so invaluable that I thought for *me* to talk to anyone would be to "force" myself upon them and be an annoying nuisance no matter what I did or said. Now I know that all people have something to give and offer others that can benefit them...and to hide what I have to share is just as selfish as being pushy and forcing myself upon people and saying "Look at me." There is a balance, a middle ground.

This is just one area in which I am and have changed my thinking.
