Good evening, everybody. Tonight, I’d like to talk about the power of our thoughts and when we give so much power of our thoughts, whether they be negative, whether they be positive. But I do believe that to be able to be as positive as we can with everything in our life, then I do feel that is so important for us.
We give so much power sometimes to the negative thoughts that we don’t allow the positive to light our world up. The living light philosophy teaches us that whatever we give thought to, we give power to.
The more energy and more attention that is directed to a thought, the stronger and the more solidified that thought becomes in our consciousness.
The living light philosophy teaches us that whatever we give thought to, we give power to. The more energy and more attention that is directed to any thought, the stronger and the more solidified that thought becomes in our consciousness.
When a thought is completely solidified in our consciousness, it is known as a judgment, since our emotions can quickly direct a great deal of energy.
Any thought that has a great emotional impact upon us is quickly solidified into a judgment. The philosophy also teaches that where we place our attention, we have a tendency to become, as we direct more attention to any judgment, we have a tendency to quite literally become the judgment, that is, we over identify with our judgments and often believe on many levels of consciousness that we are those judgments.
As yet more energy is directed to a judgment. So we believe we are that judgment, that any threat to the judgment is regarded as a threat to our very own survival. And so, when our cherished judgments are challenged, or we’ve been questioned, we often erupt with anger and fear, this can occur with any thought. It is a process of our mental universe. The more energy we direct to any thought, the more it tends to govern our lives. Defending our judgments has a tendency to rob us of the ‘joy of living.’.
When we feel, our judgments are threatened and we believe we are fighting for our survival, which is really just a survival of our judgment, although it is very thrilling to the senses. It is not harmonious. And the more judgments that we form and over identify with, the more judgments that we feel compelled to defend. The less Joy, we express in many ways, our judgments obstructs the flow of goodness in our lives, freeing ourselves from our judgments is not often easy.
The amount of energy that was directed to a judgment must be redirected to the counterbalance thought pattern in order to bring about a balance. One of the first steps in the process of dethroning our judgments is to become more aware of where we are in our consciousness. For the more aware we are, the more we can we can choose wisely which thoughts we wish to entertain and which we wish to put to sleep. Often, as we make the effort to redirect our attention to more harmonious thoughts, we become aware of how strong we have committed our judgments to become.
Fortunately, since we’ve had the power to create them, we also have the power to neutralise them – because a judgment was built thought by thought so too, must it be incrementally disassembled. In this process, repetition of affirmations and redirection of our attention is our allies and what inspires us to make the effort to change.
With each step along the path of our life, our judgments become an increasing burden. And when that great weight becomes so unbearable that life is no longer worth living, we begin to awaken to our strength and our courage, which we have so long denied in service to the defense of our judgments.
And we make the effort to redirect our attention to something greater. We have the right to be the captains of our ships of consciousness and choose thoughts that serve us well, and bring in to our lives the goodness that we truly are. But if we are to remain the captains and not in error, surrender that authority to a judgment, we must make the effort to be awake, aware and alert to where we are in our consciousness – for a life filled with joy is worth that effort, and I’d like to say thank you so much for listening to my reading. Thank you.
