Few of us have any idea of the power of our thoughts. In generations past mankind
accepted the life they were born into, even though most tried to improve
their lot in life in some small way, they realized there were
limitations based on their beliefs and traditions.
In times past, this is the system that created Feudalism and Aristocracy.
Even just a generation ago many limitations were put on people
according to their beliefs and those of society.
In this day and age , many are beginning to realize man is in charge of
his destiny and can mold the world according to his own ideas and will.
This doesn’t mean one can ignore the natural laws of nature, or Nature’s
God and expect to have a happy, normal, prosperous life. There are many
laws of nature that must be adhered to in order to accomplish happiness
in this lifetime.
For example, if one disobeys the laws of a sexual nature and enjoys
relations with multiple partners, sooner or later a disease or an
unplanned child will be a reality.
Disobey the laws of economics, either as an individual , a couple, a community
or a nation and sooner or later much financial hardship will come your
These laws cannot be broken ,over the long term if one expects to live a
life of happiness and prosperity. In spite of this , one can ignore the
laws of nature and create the world he desires, and suffer the
consequences. For every action there is a reaction.
Thoughts create words, words create actions and actions create consequences.
Hence it is very important to only think the thoughts that will lead to
the future we desire.. Those thoughts are the very things that create
I often refer to thinking as praying, thought is our continuous
communication with a higher power, God, or the universe hears and reacts
to our everyday thoughts, and puts into motion the actions that
determine our life.
In generations past, very few people realized or even considered this, the
assumption was they would lead a life comparable to those that came
before with a few added modern conveniences thrown in for good measure.
Most never questioned their existence or their spirituality. They were too
busy scratching out an existence and surviving the hard realities of
life. These two factors consumed most of their time and energy. Added
into the mix there was a limited amount of information available to the
average person. This all lead to people assuming everything they had
ever been taught was the only option and many believed to think
otherwise was blasphemous and could lead to damnation.
They never realized their thoughts lead to the way they lead their lives.
Not that there was anything wrong with their lives, in many instances
they lived more fulfilling lives than we do today. There was certainly
much more time spent with family and friends than many do in today’s
Much in our modern culture has lead to the breakdown of family and society
in general. It is time to realize we can now change that by our thoughts
and actions. The whole purpose of life is to cultivate relationships
with those we know, in person, not on Facebook or Twitter.
Social media certainly has a place in modern day culture and can add much to
our daily lives, but they don’t replace face to face relationships.
Society has gone through many changes in the past four decades,much of it for
the better. We have some serious issues to confront, they must be
approached on a personal level, it’s not something government can fix
for us, we have to fix them ourselves.It is time to separate what is
important from the rest and build a better life for everyone.
We can if we think we can.

I have found over the years that there is no such thing as reality, it is only how we perceive it. Each of us may have a different view of it because of our different beliefs and experiences. Two individuals can be sitting side by side, looking at the same event and “see” two entirely different outcomes based on their individual perceptions
