Thoughts are things. Left unguarded we expect them to rule us with ruthless persistence. Like attracts like. We are what we think. Emerson believed there was something stronger then any material force.It was his belief that thoughts ruled the world. To think positively is sometimes referred to as refusing to face reality. But who is wise enough to determine what reality is, and who can describe it? The things we see and touch are merely objects made up of tiny particles we can’t see individually. So it is with reality- tiny thought we don’t remember thinking, but the result is obviously positive or negative.
If we think continually of how sick and nervous, how unhappy, and poverty-stricken we ware, then we can expect to be so afflicted. Tiny thoughts produce large results. When we’ve learned to control our circumstances.
Imperfect thoughts, like unsavory characters, can come to anyone’s door, but we don’t have to let them in. Sometimes we have to look beyond present appearances and set the truth of things that any product is only worth as much as the quality of its materials.
We would be wise to put into practice the teachings of Phillipeans 4.8.
“whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things”.
