Why must we watch our thoughts and words? Because they create our world, our day to day experiences. When must we watch our thoughts and words carefully? The answer is simple: all the time!
As many of you know, I’ve been doing this for over 30 years. I’ve reprogrammed myself somewhat, at least to a state of being aware of my thought habits and moods. I understand that it’s not easy to constantly watch our thoughts. But here are some questions that I ask myself regularly:
How is my demeanor today? Pleasant, content, or anxious, uneasy, busy? Or am I relaxed and confident? Do I come across stern, harsh, unapproachable, and indifferent? Or do I exude loving kindness, helpfulness, and calm? Do I embrace my life with its ups and downs? Am I courageous in making choices that help my Soul so I can stay on the right path to understanding? The list goes on and on. Our daily thoughts vary and shift constantly, sometimes they are all over the map and sometimes they are calm and collected.
What about you? How are you today?
Please take the time to observe yourself so you can make corrections. Negative thoughts are like weeds. They spread quickly if you don’t tend to them. Remove all weeds in your mind, especially fears, small or large, discouragement and doubt, and you will see a difference immediately. I know it works, because I’ve tested it over and over again. One step at a time!
