Life Is Really Very Simple. What
We Give Out, We Get Back
we think about ourselves becomes the truth for us. I believe that
everyone, myself included, is responsible for everything in our lives,
the best and the worst. Every thought we think is creating our future.
Each one of us creates our experiences by our thoughts and our
feelings. The thoughts we think and the words we speak create our
We create the situations, and then we give our
power away by blaming the other person for our frustration. No person,
no place, and no thing has any power over us, for “we” are the only
thinkers in it. When we create peace and harmony and balance in our
minds, we will find it in our lives.

out to get me.”
Each one of these beliefs will create quite different experiences.
What we believe about ourselves and about life becomes true for us.
Totally Supports Us in Every Thought We Choose to Think and Believe
another way, our subconscious mind accepts whatever we choose to
believe. They both mean that what I believe about myself and about life
becomes true for me. What you choose to think about yourself and about
life becomes true for you. And we have unlimited choices about what we
can think. When we know this, then it makes sense to choose “Everyone
is always helpful,” rather than “People are out to get me.”
The Point of
Power Is Always in the Present Moment
the events you have experienced in your lifetime up to this moment have
been created by your thoughts and beliefs you have held in the past.
They were created by the thoughts and words you used yesterday, last
week, last month, last year, 10, 20, 30, 40, or more years ago,
depending on how old you are.
However, that is your past. It is
over and done with. What is important in this moment is what you are
choosing to think and believe and say right now. For these thoughts and
words will create your future. Your point of power is in the present
moment and is forming the experience of tomorrow, next week, next
month, next year, and so on.
You might notice what thought you
are thinking at this moment. Is it negative or positive? Do you want
this thought to be creating your future? Just notice and be aware.
Thing We Are Ever Dealing With Is a Thought, and a Thought Can Be

inner thoughts. Even self-hatred is only hating a thought you have
about yourself. You have a thought that says, “I’m a bad person.” This
thought produces a feeling, and you buy into the feeling. However, if
you don’t have the thought, you won’t have the feeling. And thoughts
can be changed. Change the thought, and the feeling must go.
is only to show us where we get many of our beliefs. But let’s not use
this information as an excuse to stay stuck in our pain. The past has
no power over us. It doesn’t matter how long we have had a negative
pattern. The point of power is in the present moment. What a wonderful
thing to realize! We can begin to be free in this moment!
