“We frequently hear it said, “A very distressing situation came into my life, which could not have been the result of my thought, as I certainly never entertained any thought which could have such a result.” We fail to remember that like attracts like in the mental world, and that the thought which we entertain brings to us certain friendships, companionships of a particular kind, and these in turn bring about conditions and environment, which in turn are responsible for the conditions of which we complain.”
So these last couple of weeks have been, lets say very interesting. When I read this, this week, it really hit me how critical it is to be the watchman at the gate, the observer of my thoughts. What am I talking about? I have to come to find out that a person I have been associated with for the last couple years, turns out to not really be the person he portrayed himself to be, and what we have been working on has come to an end. I should be clearer what we had going with him has come to an end. I could allow my thinking to take the path of victim, or how could he do that or ????. Now thanks to what I know and have learned so far, especially with this course, I choose to see the good, look for the good, and only focus on the good of what has happened for the last 2 years. I am really examining what my real thoughts have been, how did I attract that into my life. I wish for him the best and desire only good for him.
Then the phone rings and opens a door to what the vision has been all along for the last 2 years, only this time it is clearer, bigger and more amazing than what I had seen. What happened was a stepping stone on the path to where I am at today. I fact in retrospect if that had not happened the door that just opened could not have happened. Life is exciting.
I always keep my promises.
