The Power of Your Mind
Do not underestimate The Power of Your Mind. You are transformed by the renewal of your mind from ignorance to knowledge, from being fed with spiritual junk by third parties to discovering the god within you and feeding yourself by yourself from within. That is the The Power of Your Mind. You are not transformed by the reading of the bible; yes, that hurts but it is true. Reading the bible is not different from reading regular books. In fact, ordinary books might even turn out to be more interesting to read than the bible. Transformation must be experienced personally and much deeper than getting excited by another person’s story of how wonderful his god is. That kind of excitement will sustain you to some shallow point but cannot take you beyond it.You must recognize the The Power of Your Mind.
To give you a better picture of The Power of Your Mind, you know when the foundation of a house cracks because the building it carries has become too heavy for it and it can no longer support the weight? So will your excitement and belief system crash at some point when it can no longer support the manifestation of the progress and purpose you have by your good works earned for yourself. Yes, this crash will deal a big blow on you because you are in a rush to “get there”. You will see it as delay to career and hindrance to your promotion, as enemy of progress. But nature is not in a hurry like you. It will take all the time it needs to teach you new things to help you build a fresh and stronger spiritual foundation for the higher life that you truly desire. It will only be after nature has finished training you for the new works and laurels ahead of you that you will realize that you did actually require the training; that it would never have been the same if someone else had had the experience in your behalf and told you them in stories.
Only your personal experiences can bring you to your point of glory that you desire. Only you can connect by yourself to that experience. The Power of Your Mind cannot be delegated. None can save you but yourself. Any effort to “deliver” you that does not seek and get the cooperation of the works of your mind you not valid and will not work. Nothing truly is as far as your body and your life is concerned, unless it comes directly to you from source by the connection of the material to the spiritual using the tool of mind and the connection of thought.
