Can our thoughts really change our world?

Our thoughts can be powered by the energy of love. If so, these thoughts will change our world for us in a positive way. If not though, our thoughts being powered by our fears, will likely as much change our world for us in a negative way.

The world is just the world. Try to see it from love, and you will be seeing it in the way that God sees it.

Are we just the sum total of our thoughts, or not?

Our thoughts can indeed change our perception of what the world is like. We see it in a certain way because of the thoughts that we are currently holding onto about it.

For example, I was seated on a train recently. A large man came into the carriage. Everyone looked at him, hoping that he wouldn't sit next to them.

Why? He would squash into them as he sat down.

The man seemed to know this, and he stayed standing up. Being a large overweight man he had probably experienced this many times before. The train took off, and as it gathered some speed, the man looked as if he was in some type of difficulty as he stood there. He was sweating.

I overcome my previous thoughts, and thinking of him as a fellow passenger in life and not just on the train, I got off from my seat, and I offered mine to him then. He sat down heavily, almost falling into the seat. The schoolboy sitting next to me also then got up. It appeared that he didn't want to stay sitting next to such a large man now either.

Who really knows the thoughts of anyone else?

What was the fat man thinking, what was the schoolboy really thinking?

All that I can really ever know is my own thoughts, and if I am not careful, these might be painting the wrong picture for me too.

There is the truth of a situation, and then there are the details, either positive or negative that we can paint over the truth with, with our own thoughts.

Painting over the truth in this way is judging someone falsely.

Ask yourself often, what is the real truth of this situation, and then try to let go of all of your other colourful interpretations of what you only think that it might be in this situation.

When you react in the wrong way, you are usually adding something false to the truth.

Putting the power of God's love behind your thoughts

When love is the energy behind a thought, this thought becomes powered by that love into really becoming alive.

There are always consequences to our acting on our thoughts. Every thought before being acted on must be examined as to its possible future affects on all other souls, on yourself, and even on God. Thoughts are powerful, they can affect all else.

Our perception of things can change as our conscious awareness grows, or as we become wiser in our living, in other words.

Perception is always of the mind when it is first being presented to you as your reality, by your mind.

Love can paint for you another greater reality, and this is where you must finally move to by embracing this higher truth.

The journey taking you from your mind to your heart's greater reality is one along the road of consciousness. Perception plays here the role of monitoring your experiences from your current hold on reality, or from your presently grown level of conscious awareness.

Wisdom is based on how you are seeing things, from either truth, or untruth

The way that you currently perceive things are, is based on how wisely you are seeing these things now.

As Jesus Christ once said, "those who have eyes can see, and those who have ears can hear."

Jesus said it like this in Saint Mark's gospel, chapter 4, verse 9.

Jesus said, "Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear."

Love is the complete reality of God.

This means that when you perceive love as being in all things, and as being the real instigator or energy source responsible for the creation of all things, including every life experience that you will ever go through, you will grow in the perceptive looking at all from the eyes of only love. This is in contrast to you only just seeing things from the eyes of your mind, or from your ego, which will always just perceive things in their own limiting way for you.

Our thoughts alone are not showing us the full picture then.

They only paste themselves on the walls of the greater truth like graffiti on a white fence.This means that the greater reality is the fence, whereas the message, if it is being understood properly though, can still help you to see the fence that is underlying the underpinning of the present "percepted" reality, as it being seen by you right now.

When we think through our hearts, rather than through our minds, we will become more aware of the possible consequences of our thoughts then. We will be seeing things from truth, and not just from our own thoughts, or not just in the way that we want to see things.

Quite philosophical, Spirited. We know what is right all the time but sometimes we just close our eyes due to circumstances (like being too tired to offer seat to another more in need) . In those times I feel a sense of lost opportunity having failed others. When one makes it a habit to help others to the point of being selfless in life, the reaction we get prove the point that the world always appreciates good deeds. The light we shine thereby is brighter - siva

Maybe if we live from a higher energy such as love is, we will also hold those good type of thoughts then too....

thanks Steve, thoughts are indeed things, they can not be dismissed as if they are nothing. Something else has usually prompted them to arise in that way.

I do think our thoughts are the key to a new reality but using the thoughts in the right way is difficult.

thanks Mark,

thinking good thoughts depends on a lot of other things I feel. It takes some wisdom to use thoughts in the right way I expect.

Give , and it shall be given unto you , in like measure as you give , so shall you receive ...
This applies to our thoughts and action as well as gifts either financially or otherwise spirited .
So we can't fail if we think the best , and then act upon it .
God bless you

thanks Stella,

giving is certainly much better than just taking as some people sometimes try to do.

If you just take without giving what you have will be taken away from you too says the bible I believe.

Good afternoon, Spirited. Another excellent article. An eastern expression: There is your truth, my truth, and the truth is somewhere in the middle. As above, so below, as within, so without. Thank you for your article. ~Marilyn

thanks Marilyn.

I guess we all have only just a small part of truth then.

Sharing our truth with others builds up everyone's view into the real truth then too.
