The mind is everything. What you think you become. – Buddha
The outer world is a mirror image of what is going on inside of us and what goes on inside of us is defined by what we think and how we feel. Thoughts and feelings are important to the manifestation process. Let us talk about thoughts in this post.
We know that we become what we keep thinking about. Most of us have no control on what we are thinking. If we take a moment to look at the thoughts we are having, we will realize that more than 50% of the thoughts are totally irrelevant and doesn’t add anything to the quality of our life.
We get worried about things, most of which never occur. We think about past which is a complete waste as it has no bearing on present or future. It is like we have unlimited currency and more than 50% of which we are wasting on things which have no or negative return value.
Remembering a wrong is like carrying a burden on the mind. – Buddha
So treat your thoughts like currency. Just like the dollar notes have no value unless spent on something useful, your thoughts have no value unless they bring positive returns. If you keep thinking negative thoughts and are in constant state of worry, stress, frustration etc you are spending your thought currency and not getting anything in return. In fact, spending your thought currency like this is even worse than spending actual currency on useless things. In case of actual physical money you can just spend and if you do not get anything in return you can forget about it. But when you are having negative thoughts you are sapping yourself of precious life energy.
If spending actual dollars on useless things made you physically and mentally week over a period of time, would you do it? Of course not. The why we bother to dwell on negative thoughts when it drains us of our life energy.
Treat your thoughts like money. In case of money, you choose carefully how to spend it. When spent wisely money brings luxury and comfort. Similarly, when you spend your thoughts carefully it brings positive manifestation.
When it comes to money you invest your money so that you can reap the rewards later. Treat your thoughts like an investment. The more positive thoughts you invest today, the more positive outcomes you will receive tomorrow.
