We are of the human species and the first question is ‘who you are you choosing to ‘BE?’.
‘Being’ is a state, such as being happy. You cannot explain state, nor can you do a state. You can only ‘be’ a state. You cannot do happiness; you can only be happiness or be happy. Creation works as follows: ‘being’ causes ‘thinking’, which causes an emotion and then an action, which puts in place the system to receive and experience what you created in your being and thinking, your reality. ‘Being’ is the start of cause.
Being is what causes thinking. So, when you are happy, you will think happy thoughts. Thoughts spring from being. Nothing happens without being. Conditions occur because of a state of being, and not the other way around as most people think. A friend of mine said he was having depressing thoughts as he was depressed. This is incorrect. His depressing thoughts were making him depressed. Furthermore he had to explore who he was really ‘being’ as a start.
Happy conditions do not make you happy. It is ‘being happy’ that causes happy conditions. Unhappy conditions only show up to prove your existing state of unhappiness. To help you understand that, consider happiness. Do not try to get happiness, Be Happy. See? You can either do things that make you happy or you can instantly decide to be happy, just make a decision. Happiness exists independent of your circumstances. Learn to be happy by changing your thinking. Look around you there are people who live in the worse circumstances possible yet many just choose to be happy.
When you think back in your life you will be able to see times when you had nothing and you were extremely happy and times when you believed that you had everything and you were at a great place etc and the reality may have been that you were not happy. This reflection will show you that your feelings and emotions work independent from your circumstances. You could be on a tropical island sipping decadent cocktail and still not be happy. The question is who are you choosing to be?
If I choose to be the worry pot, look at what I create in this example. My daughter of 19 goes out to a party with some friends in a car. As the good old ‘worry pot’ the two of us agree that she will send a cell phone text message at 11pm to confirm that everything is aright. At 11.03pm no text message! So I have a thought, ‘something has happened’, a car accident, abduction, spiked drink etc etc.. Within seconds I experience an emotion of anxiety. Eventually I convince myself that something is wrong and I go into action and I get into my car and off to go to fetch her. The result is I have a mad teenager and I feel a fool. Yet I could have chosen to be the parent who in my ‘being’ chooses the stand that my 18 old is old enough to take responsibility for her life and the consequences of her action and all is fine and in this process of thoughts I choose not to create negative realities for myself based on the thoughts in my mind.
Remember you can not have a feeling without having a thought first. Your behavior is based on your feelings which are based on your thoughts. Therefore the mere act of changing your thoughts will change your behavior and you reality. Your actions come from thought images. For example if you think you are incompetent you see yourself as being incompetent your will be incompetent. If you see yourself as lacking self confidence you will not be confident in who you are being and this will be evident in your realities. Furthermore if you believed that you lack self confidence it is unlikely that you will apply for jobs, go confidently into a relationship, and interact with people freely etc. As a start change your thoughts about yourself and choose to own self fulfilling and powerful expanding thoughts. Just be the person you want to be and then the thoughts, emotions, actions and your realities will change.
The conclusion is that you own an inner power that is absolutely amazing and that is that you own your perceptions, your thoughts, the power to choose how to react to a situation, power to create your own joy and satisfaction, power to act, and the power to love etc etc etc. You own the power to create a self fulfilled highly joyful life over one of self defeat and misery. TOTALLY AWESOME SO USE IT!
