Some of us might not want to admit it, but how we think means everything to our lives. In our philosophy called the Science of Mind, we do not teach people what to think, but how to think. But, how does one teach someone how to think. This is a good question.
We learn how to think by embracing an already established premise. We make the definite decision to believe differently than we have in the past. The already established premise I’m talking about is that everything is Mind. When I use the word Mind, I am referring to what many called God or Source Energy. It is now sometimes called the Field. Albert Einstein stated, “The Field is the soul governing agency of the particle.” Everything is Mind meaning everything comes from the Invisible field of energy that responds to our thoughts and feelings or vibration. In our philosophy, we call this First Cause.
Ernest Holmes, the Founder of the Science of Mind and Spirit wrote this, “We recognize that everything is Mind and that nothing moves but Mind. That Intelligence is aback of everything acting as a thought force, which is concrete definite and real.”
What does this mean to us? He further states, “The reason people do not believe mental healing is possible is that they do not understand the meaning of Causation, that intelligence is back of all things, that there is one fundamental Intelligence in the Universe. and that the individual is but a point where this intelligence manifests as a person.”
This is the already established premise by which I live. Then I let this guide my thoughts. If I am understanding that I am a point in Intelligence, the One Mind, that responds to me as I think, then I have something with which to work. I am not making this up. Just read about the new science: Quantum Science. It is real and an understanding of it, along with practice is changing people’s lives and healing lives.
I have to turn my thoughts around if things are not going the way I would like and the only way I can do this is if I believe that I am at the helm of my ship. I must believe that it is my thoughts that need changing, not my conditions.
I am on a journey and every day I apply this Principle to everything in my life. I am re-writing the programs with which I was brought up. This is a daily practice, but it is worth the journey. I have seen amazing changing in my life. Staying positive is easy when it comes from the knowing that there is a more powerful part of myself that I can call upon. Living from that place, makes it easier when confronted with so much negativity in the world.
I believe we are entering a new time, a time when each of us has the opportunity to go within and awaken to the Power of our thoughts, shift our beliefs and live larger, healthier, and more loving lives. I am so grateful.
