Set your mind at work to solve its problems; teach your intellect to work for you; refuse longer to be dominated by fear like an unthinking animal. – The Urantia Papers
Humans can think, we can discern, we can decide and we can act. We do this by using our minds of course. The mind as a faculty is not powered by the brain alone. There’s a component of it that comes from higher sources. That’s our access to the higher self, to better decisions and to happier living.
When will we use this amazing faculty while asserting control?
We must remember that thinking allows us to step back and consider the landscape, the situation, sharpen or reverse a perspective, use experience to our advantage and act in faith! The thing that does the thinking, the decision making and the acting is not the mind, it’s the ‘I’, it’s us. That ‘I’ can assert control over runaway thinking, fear-ridden thinking or thinking that’s turning negative. We just have to realize we can assert control and then just do it!
Daily Affirmation: Today I use my mind as a tool!
