Things are created in the mental or spiritual world before they appear in the outward act or event. By the simple process of governing our thought forces today, we help create the events which will come into our lives in the future, perhaps even tomorrow.

Thought will bring about conditions in correspondence with the predominant mental attitude. Therefore, if we fear disaster, as fear is a more powerful form of thought, disaster will be the certain result of our thinking. It is this form of thought which frequently sweeps away the result of many years of toil and effort.

You cannot spend 20 or 30 years of your life building up negative conditions as a result of negative thoughts, and then expect to see them all melt away as the result of 15 or 20 minutes of right thinking.

Concentration does not mean mere thinking of thoughts, but the transmutation of these thoughts into practical values; the average person has no conception of the meaning of concentration. There is always the cry “to have” but never the cry “to be”; they fail to understand that they cannot have one without the other, that they must first find the “kingdom” before they can have the “things added.”

Momentary enthusiasm is of no value; it is only with unbounded self-confidence that the goal is reached.

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.

Fear is a powerful form of thought. It paralyzes the nerve centres, affecting the circulation of the blood. This, in turn, paralyzes the muscular system, so that fear affects the entire being, body, brain and nerve, physical, mental, and muscular.

The way to overcome fear is to become conscious of power.

Thought is creative vibration, and the quality of the conditions created will depend upon the quality of our thought, because we cannot express powers which we do not possess.

We must “be” before we can “do” and we can “do” only to the extent to which we “are,” and so what we do will necessarily coincide with what we are, and what we are depends upon what we think.

The predominant thought or the mental attitude is the magnet, and the law is that “like attracts like”

Knowledge is of priceless value, because by applying knowledge we can make our future what we wish it to be.

When we realize that our present character, our present environment, our present ability, our present physical condition are all the result of past methods of thinking, we shall begin to have some conception of the value of knowledge.

You can make a money magnet of yourself, but to do so you must first consider how you can make money for other people.

If you have the necessary insight to perceive and utilize opportunities and favourable conditions and recognize values, you can put yourself in position to take advantage of them, but your greatest success will come as you are enabled to assist others.

What benefits one must benefit all.

The banker gives his money, the merchant gives his goods, the author gives his thought, the workman gives his skill; all have something to give, but the more they give, the more they get, and the more they get the more they are able to give.

Many constantly concentrate upon sorrow, loss and discord of every kind; as thought is creative, it necessarily follows that this concentration inevitably leads to more loss, more sorrow and more discord. How could it be otherwise?

You can get out of life exactly what you wish by first putting into life that which you wish.

As all conditions are thought-creations and therefore entirely mental, disease and lack are simply mental conditions in which the person fails to perceive the truth; as soon as the error is removed, the condition is removed.

If you see only the incomplete, the imperfect, the relative, the limited, these conditions will manifest in your life; but if you train your mind to see and realize the spiritual ego, the “I” which is forever perfect and complete, then harmonious; wholesome, and healthful conditions only will be manifested.

The brain is a giant immune system gland that operates on hope, joy, and optimism. The gland turns off in response to mental attitudes of fear and depression.

The question is raised as to how many people are dying because they have been programmed to die. The observation is made that doctors who tell their patients they have a terminal disease are programming their patients to die.

— Ross Horne, Health & Survival in the 21st Century

Remembering that life is temporary can free us from false pretenses and pointless strife in our lives, and open up space for intense joy instead.

The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.

— Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

Noone is destined or designed to give me what I want. I can engage with others, I can be amused and endured by their innocence. But they’re not necessarily here to give me what I want. Only I’m here to do that.

The key to awakening my most authentic voice is not in being so concerned with the choices I make. Or trying to choose the right words to say. But in acknowledging and affirming, only the light of divinity makes these words. Only the light of divinity inhabits this body. Only the light of divinity lives out what it’s created. And in knowing this is so, I hand over all of my power to the light within me. I bring forth the voice of my deepest truth. I relinquish all responsibility and attachment to outcome. And allow the light of divinity within me to speak all words, and make all choices, and to resolve all matters, here and now as I am.

Love your heart. Love is the ultimate unifier. We can change the perception of the energy around us, simply by remembering to love ourselves more.

I’ve learned that people don’t respond to what I say, they respond to the tone and manner in which it’s spoken. So if I say “no” in the most loving way, they walk away with the experience of the energy not with what they think about my words.

So if you say “I’ve gotta go… but I’ve loved talking with you – you’re a treasure in my life and I adore you”
In that statement, we’ve said “no” once and we’ve said 3 different positive things and we’ve ended with a positive. They are going to walk away with a positive thing because the ego does not remember the first thing you say, it remembers the last or the thing you said most often.

You cannot remember your hand, their hands, perhaps even the rules of this game. This game can only be won by those who lose their cards in the melting influence of love; can only be won by those who lay their pleasures, their limitations, their all upon the table face up and say inwardly: “All, all of you players, each other-self, whatever your hand, I love you.” This is the game: to know, to accept, to forgive, to balance, and to open the self in love. This cannot be done without the forgetting, for it would carry no weight in the life of the mind/body/spirit beingness totality.

If someone does something that “hurts your ego,” you will grow fastest if you consciously regard him or her as your teacher who is enabling you to discover which addictions you will have to reprogram.

Just experience everything in an accepting, relaxed, and conscious way – and realize that every one of your experiences is perfect for your here and now growth into higher consciousness.

When you are not completely open and truthful to all people – when you are trying to hide a part of your inner feelings – you continue the illusion of separateness from others.

Your life works best when you love, serve, and flow your loving energy – not from a lower consciousness motivation of “I am helping you,” or “I will save you,” but simply from the awareness that “the universe gave this energy to me and it feels good to pass it along.”

The worst critic you will ever encounter is the one who lives inside your own mind. The way you talk to yourself has a profound impact on your emotional state.

Our consciousness resides within a field of energy that is so vast and unlimited that no one brain or body could ever hold its magnificence and beauty. The human soul is such a miracle of creation that science is just now starting to acknowledge. We truly are as unlimited as the field itself, witch really has no ending or beginning. We are the all that is. We are a piece of the Source. We are the unlimited soul fractals of Source Creator here on Earth having a Human experience to expand the experiences of the Creator. We are the leading edge of creation.
