Why Our Thoughts Matter

There are no idle thoughts.  – A Course In Miracles

thoughts are powerful

Thoughts initiate. Thoughts create. Thoughts perpetuate. We’re constantly thinking and therefore initiating, creating and perpetuating. What thoughts or thought patterns do we dwell on?

love or fear?

Each thought or thought pattern leads us either into fear or to an experience of love. The two emotions cannot coexist. ‘Today I must buy that present for my friend’ could be a thought we think. If it’s something we’re afraid we might forget to do or we’re doing it because we want our friend to like us, then essentially this thought creates fear in us. Instead if we’re imagining what the effect of that present will be on our relationship and how we might enjoy buying and presenting that gift then this thought leads to more love. No thought is idle, we choose and design at every juncture.

Daily Affirmation: Today I move towards love by becoming love.
