“If we choose to dwell on how tough life is, we continue to live a tough life. Living a tough life doesn’t offer much inspiration to think good thoughts, so we continue thinking about what we continue to see in our lives – thereby creating more of the same in a continuous cycle. If you don’t take charge of your thoughts, the cycle continues. If you really need a good reason to change your mind, or thought patterns, look around you. It is your mind and your thoughts that has led you here and created all you see. If you find anything you are not happy with, you need only find and change the thought that created it.
The world around us, and our history as a species, supports the fact that we are great creators. Our free will, however, enables us to create misery and destruction as readily as beauty and love. We have the choice to believe in either; the formula, however, is the same. Our intention, in this case, is the only thing that changes and, along with belief, sets the stage and colors the backdrop for all creation. Free will is a gift, but it is also a responsibility. What we do to another, we do unto ourselves and these things can not be undone. Let us be mindful, faithful, and let us all strive to be diligent with our thought and word, for it is with these tools that our tomorrows are built.”
Pete Koerner, in “The Belief Formula”
