"The universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make it."- Marcus Aurelius

As a man thinks in his heart so is he. This verse alone from the bible proves what power we have in our thoughts.

Your thoughts are very powerful. It could affect 'literally' the people and the environment around you. How unfortunate it is that people take for granted the power of their thoughts.

We must not excuse ourselves as so many do, by saying undesirable feelings are natural under certain conditions, we must assert our power to take control of our minds and emotions and not let our emotions control us.

A grumbling and fault-finding attitude towards others is unfortunately sadly common at the present day. And those who make it a habit never seem to realize the harm that they are doing.

If we study its result we shall see that the habit of malicious gossip is nothing short of wicked. It does not matter if the gossip is true or not in either case it can cause only harm.

Men are not prisoners of fate, but only prisoners of their own minds.- Franklin D. Roosevelt

Suppose a number of people 'suspects' another person of jealousy. And these group of people starts to spread gossips and pour their thoughts and energy and tell other groups of people(they even post it on facebook or twitter<-worse!) about this person they are accusing of jealousy.

Isn't it obvious that if the poor man these people are accusing has any tendency towards that unpleasant quality, it cannot but greatly intensified in him because, of the thoughts they have been sending and gossiping about the individual?

And if, as is commonly the case, that the person these people are gossiping about, does not have that characteristic of jealousy, because of their gossiping and thoughts they would create jealousy in the affairs of the person being accused.

No wonder most famous people becomes unstable look at Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, Mo twister, Macapagal Arroyo and the combined negative thought of the whole nation focused towards them. Makes sense?

"For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me."-Job 3:25

Think of your friends, love ones and any person by all means, but think of their good points, not because that it is much healthier for you but because by doing so you strengthen them.

When you are reluctantly compelled to recognize the presence of some undesirable quality in a person, take special care not to think of it, BUT to think instead of the opposite virtue which you wish him to develop.

If he happens to have a bad attitude and easily gets angry, carefully avoid gossiping about his defect or even fixing your thought upon it, because if you do, the vibration which you will send to him will simply make matters worse. Instead of that, think with all your strength of the quality which he needs, flood him with the patience and peace, for in that way you will really help your brother.

"The universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make it."- Marcus Aurelius

Just imagine the effect of this, if you start to think positive thoughts towards your father, mother, husband, wife, son, daughter, relatives, cousin, girlfriend, boyfriend, maid, driver, neighbor, work colleagues, friends, stranger, teacher, waiter, waitress, security guards, the man on the street, the beggar, the street children, celebrities,

politicians, the president, our justices, our government, our country, other nations and the world? Ask yourselves, are you part of the solution or the problem?

"Thought creates character."- Annie Besant

You may start to make it a habit to think good and kindly thoughts, and your minds will begin to work more easily along the lines of admiration and appreciation instead of along those of suspicion and negativity. If you do make it a habit of practicing good and kindly thoughts you shall very soon begin to perceive the results of this positive habit in your life.

Use your thoughts in ways such us these and you will become a bonfire of blessing in your corner of the world.

-Marco

"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things." -Philippians 4:8
