Ultimate Empowerment Is Taking Full Charge Of Your Mind
To gain empowerment and understand what I mean by taking charge let's examine our present life situation by making a few statements.
We are the sum total of our past actions
Everything we have or are today is a result of our past action. Our, job, our car, our house etc, all results of past action. loving relationships are a result of loving past actions. Hostility is likely a result of hostile past action. All physical things in our lives boils down to a past decision resulting in some kind of action. Our choices may have been limited, or maybe we were given no choice at all, but result is still caused by action. This leads us to the cause of those actions.
A decision or choice preceded all action
All of our past action was chosen by us. Sure enough pressure can be applied and manipulations used, but even in those situation we still made a choice. We chose between two or more consequences. The fact we felt forced to a particular choice to avoid a certain undesirable consequence does not remove the truth that we still had a choice. To take this now one step further, we can see that our decisions or choices had to be preceded by some kind of evaluation or thought process.
Decision or choice is the result of thought
To be as brief as possible, a thought or evaluation process had to take place prior to a decision being made. It’s what separates us from animals. As humans we are empowered to evaluate and make choices. We can override instinct.
Conclusion - we are what we think
This is the only conclusion we can arrive at.
Current life = result of past action
Past action = result of past choices and decisions
Choices and decisions = result of our thought process
A different thought process then must produce a different result. What else could happen? The value of this is profound! The next and only logical statement to be made here is change your thoughts and you will change your results. This is the foundation of all sustained change of any kind, good or bad. Understand this principle and you are well, well on your way.
Now hopefully we can see that when I refer to taking charge, I am referring to the empowerment of our mind, not bullying or using muscle to control our physical environment. Learning to use our mind in the correct way will certainly give us the empowerment we desire.
The challenge now becomes to determine what is the correct way? Parents, environment, past experience, spiritual principles, education etc obviously all play a large part in how we think. We have simply accepted what we have be given to be true. Not a bad thing. There’s no right and wrong here, only results. If what you have been given is not getting the results you desire, look to find a new way of thinking. Makes sense right? The correct way to think is the way that gets you what you want.
