PONDER on THIS for Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013 by Susan Shumsky in INSTANT HEALING

“The very first verse of the first chapter of the Dhammapada, the foundation scripture of Buddhism, states, “All that we are is the result of what we have thought…If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him, as the wheel follows the foot of the ox that draws the carriage…If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.”

In this verse, Buddha illustrates how you are the sole creator of your destiny through thoughts, words, and deeds. This is the fundamental precept of metaphysics. You are the author of your life. You write the script and act in your play. You are the producer, director, and stage manager. Nothing ever happens “to you.” You only happen to yourself.

Lord Buddha’s teaching can be summarized as follows: There are no victims; there are only volunteers. No one is to blame for your problems or is responsible for your successes, because you have created everything by what you think, say, and do. In this vein, you can use healing affirmations and prayers to transform your mind from negativity to positivity. When you control your mind and speech, then you take the reins of your destiny. You can manifest your true heart’s desires and create miracles.”
