The following quote is attributed to Mahatma Gandhi, although others have expressed a very similar idea:
Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.
In essence, your thoughts create your life. Imagine all that power you have! This means all aspects of your life are created by your thoughts. Cause produces effect, with Divine Intelligence inspiring and guiding us.
My thoughts about my health, love, finances, etc. put into action what is to follow. To be clear, the outcomes probably won’t happen overnight. It takes time, repetition, and energy behind the thought. It’s not magic, like, “Presto! I have a million dollars.”
Further, there is more back of this. I have to feel worthy to receive and I may have to prepare myself to receive. If I really cannot fathom having million dollars, I’ll probably not obtain it. If I do, I will not have it for long (you hear stories about folks winning the lottery and in a short time, they are financially where they were previously). If $100,000 is more comfortable in my psyche, then that’s the level I should focus on for that time being.
I marvel at younger generations who have been raised knowing these truths and thus able to more readily create a life of their choosing, of joy and freedom. Nevertheless, whatever age we are, wherever we are at, we can effect a change for the better through our thoughts and the universal law of cause and effect operating in our life through Spirit.
