Week 17- Concentration

I think Buddha said it best when he said, “Mind is everything.  What you think you become.”  Very plainly stated and yet so powerful.  What you think, you become.

This week was about concentration.  How shifting the thought that we are concentrating on will manifest that thought.  It is so easy to get sucked into thinking about what is wrong with our lives.  Money, health, family, jobs, money (thought this was worth mentioning twice), relationships, ect.  But when that is all we are thinking about, all the universe hears is what we are throwing out there and decides to give it to us.  The universe is very generous like that!

Haanel says “If you wish to eliminate fear, concentrate on courage.  If you wish to eliminate lack, concentrate on abundance.  If you wish to eliminate disease, concentrate on health.  Always concentrate on the ideal as an already existing fact; this is the germ cell, the life principle which goes forth and sets in motion those causes which guide, direct and bring about the necessary relation, which eventually manifest into form.”

I think this is probably the most powerful statement in this weeks readings.  It has made me think about what I have been focusing on for the last while and how simply changing my own thinking will, in fact, change me.  I am courageous, I am healthy, I am strong, and I can do anything.  We have all heard Mark say that your subconscious mind has no defense against our voice.  So, this being the case, I will now become the crazy lady that talks to herself all day.

  1. Crazy people rule! lol
    I also love that Haanel quote… and in my observations this week I notice how many people do the opposite (including me at times).
    Imagine… just imagine if everyone in the world began flipping their thoughts to concentrate only on the ‘antidote’, the solution, rather than the problem….. W O W what a wonderful world. Thank you for your thoughtful blog Jenn 🙂
