What Do I Think About Me?

As I woke up this morning and contemplated that it has been a little over four weeks since my retina surgery, I had an amazing discovery. It is not really anything new, but it registered with me in a new way. I do not need to create a process of healing to make me slow down. I also realized that I’ve been listening to a lot of chatter about how I do too much, and I’ve even been telling myself the same thing. Maybe, this is just my true personality: not doing too much but more of an excitement for what I do. I love what I do and the life I have.

Ernest Holmes once wrote, “Life is a mirror and reflects back to the thinker what he thinks into it.” I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and it hasn’t always been constructive for myself. Emma Curtis Hopkins’ voice is loud in my ear. It is this particular phrase from her “Radiant I Am.”


“I have been a listening disciple. I have let people and objects and activities
come toward me and impinge upon me till I have been over piled and mountain covered
with thoughts. But now I know that I AM at my own Center, authority over and
through my universe, and I shall ordain my twelve disciples, or my twelve powers, to
spread my Original Nature abroad till from me to the utmost stretches all is my Divine
Ego.”

She is giving me a push to remember that I get to decide what I will think, and that I am authority over my own life. So, what does this mean to me? It means I must take responsibility for what I am, who I am and for the direction my life is taking. I get to decide how much I want to do and not do, and what I want to do and not do, and what I think about it all. In fact, it all starts with what I think about it all.

So, right now, I am turning the wheel of causation in the direction, not just of my healing, but to my ability to have, do and be whatever it is that I decide in that moment. It might change, too, and that is okay. I am clear as to the destiny I am creating for myself. It includes love, creativity, prosperity and health. It includes being the person with whom I want to have as my companion or companions.

Today is a new day. Our theme this coming month is “Re-awaken!” I most definitely feel re-awakened today. I trust there is some nugget here for you and your re-awakening. Just remember, you are at the helm of your own ship.

Love and Aloha,
