I am starting a series of posts with the hope of generating a little discussion. I want these short posts to be an opportunity for me and you both to stop and pause from our hectic life's. Just take a moment to reflect on the question and if you have any thoughts or feelings you would like to share that would be awesome!
I found this picture on Google images and the site it was on had a good short article on the power of thought.
I will also be making quotes to go along with the topic of my question. Please feel free to take them and use them, but of coarse if you're putting it on another site just give The SIP Project credit for making it. If you would like me to e-mail (as an attachment) you one of these quotes let me know, I would be happy to. Oh... and which one do you like better?
How does controlling your thoughts relate to being a charitable and positive person or influence?
Here's the thing if we want to be positive and see positive changes around us and in our communities it starts with us. It starts small and it takes a conscious effort. It takes a lot of effort at first but the more we practice the better we become at it. I truly feel that if we have a hard time seeing the good in those we are around most or have a hard getting along with those we around most making changes on a larger scale will not be as easy or as natural. It starts in the home and in the natural flow of things it won't be able to be contained it our homes it will flow outward to the other parts of our lives.
I don't know if I am making sense to anyone but myself but I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences on the matter.
I have also been thinking it's time for a give away. Since I am kicking of this series of posts I think it appropriate to giveaway one of my favorite books. James Allen's book As a man thinketh. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment about the above question. The winner will be announced January 7th.
