I am completely convinced that anyone who is suffering, is suffering needlessly. As a result of this belief, I have been “working” during the last 17 years or so, to bring a message of Hope to all who will listen. I strongly believe in the scripture which say, “All are called, but the chosen are few,” with a slight twist, as stated in A Course Miracles. The Course says it is more accurate to say, “All are called, but few will listen.” Since the Creator is one of mercy, I choose to believe in the latter. Listen up…
While reading the original edition of Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, I found what I consider to be, The Golden Nugget. The passages that I found struck me as the key to gaining all the richness that the Creator offers. This has to do with far more than material riches. It includes happiness, peace of mind, and all the other riches we desire. He is reflecting on the famous poem, Invictus by William Earnest Henley which concludes with the lines,
“I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul”
Hill says that we are the masters of our fate, the captains of our soul because we have the power to control our Thought. Referring to Henley, he goes on to say,
“He should have told us that the ether in which this little earth floats, in which we move and have our being, is a form of energy moving at an inconceivably high rate of vibration, and that the ether is filled with a form of universal power (My question…Could that Power be that which we call the Creator?) which adapts itself to the nature of the thoughts we hold in our minds and INFLUENCES us, in natural ways, to transmute our thoughts into their physical equivalent…(definition of transmute – to completely change the form, appearance, or nature of someone or something)
“He should have told us, with great emphasis, that this power makes no attempt to discriminate between destructive thoughts and constructive thoughts, that it will urge us to translate into physical reality thoughts of poverty, just as quickly as it will influence us to act upon thoughts of riches.
He should have told us, too, that our brains become magnetized with the dominating thoughts which we hold in our minds, and by means which no man is familiar, these “magnets” attract to us the forces, the people. the circumstances of life which harmonize with the nature of our dominating thoughts.
Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich, The original 1937 unedited edition, pp. 32-33
I say all of this to say that we, like our Creator, are immensely powerful beings with the God-given power to create and mold our circumstances. It is only through our ignorance of this power that we suffer. The fact is, we create our circumstances by thought alone, plain and simple. Once we discipline ourselves to harness this tremendous power of thought, all things are possible.
Stop giving your power away to the circumstances around you and focus, instead, on that which you DESIRE and see what transpires. I know this to be true because, week after week, I watch people in my classes make those changes.
Remember, you reap what you sow, so start sowing the seeds of what you want, not those of what you don’t want! The Power does not discriminate.
