AS A MAN THINKETH…

AS A MAN THINKETH…

The power of visualization and intention is the key to directing our energy for success in life. What you think can become your reality can become reality so be careful in how you use your thought processes.

St. Thomas Aquinas said in the thirteenth century, “There’s nothing in the effect that is not in some way in the cause”. James Allen in his metaphysical classic As a Man Thinketh, written over a century ago, said the following: “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he”. Thoughts not only embraces the whole of a man’s being, but is also reaches out to every condition and circumstance of his life. A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of his thoughts.

Our consciousness in daily living, our ideas, our judgments and our visualizations are but reflections of the collective inputs and outputs of our thought forms. As we become more aware of our inner thoughts and how they affect our behaviour and self-image, we are able to master these thoughts in the directions that would manifest outwardly the intentions we require for our own lives. There’s no limit then to what we can become as what we think becomes the reality of what we are.

Remove the barriers to our realization of positive outcomes and we shall create new boundaries for imagination and self-actualization. It is difficult sometimes to grasp the simplicity of this fact, yet it is the life force of the universe, like gravity is a force of planet Earth. Explore yourself and see where and how it will lead in the realization of your dreams.

Concepts are the infrastructures we build for ourselves. When we build walls, we enclose ourselves within a fortress that is unable to realize its full potential. Progress comes when we learn to do our own remodeling and when all outer barriers are completely dismantled. This is frightening for most people as they build greater and greater belief mechanisms around themselves, which they feel protect them from the vagaries of the outer world. The effect of this behaviour is dysfunctional as it does not correlate with the reality of living and achieving happiness in daily life.

    A famous philosopher said “give me another planet to stand on, and I’ll move the earth.” It shows that man’s thoughts and potentials are limitless. Therefore, what you think, you sow, and as the adage goes “what you sow, you reap.”

    Thanks teacher Cy, you have ignited a trillion sparks, and you remind me of a great man,
