I wrote recently about Law and Order, and acting with Integrity and Love.
On the radio last Sunday, a senior Police Officer sent out exactly the same message (maybe without my subtle touch).
The message is, “It is up to us”.
The following article that I have chosen, is topical.
Once again not very subtle, but there is little doubt that this is where we are at. Not just in Australia, but around the world.
How do I make a Difference?
Obviously, a change of attitude is required, and acceptance (and ownership) of the problem.
In his book Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill spends a lot of time on the sub-conscious mind, and the power of auto-suggestion.
Whether we know it or acknowledge it, these two work together every second of our life, and determine our destiny.
The sub-conscious mind does not, and can not distinguish between good and bad. It just receives and stores what we purposely permit to occupy our minds.
(How many times have you gone to sleep at night with unresolved problems, and woken up in the morning with a clear path of action?)
The book goes on to deal extensively with faith… in it’s broadest terms.
To condense it in a sentence – if we intensely believe in and desire something and have faith that it can happen, and continue to submit it to the sub-conscious mind, we have demonstrated the urgency of the matter to authorize auto-suggestion to take control, create the vehicle, and put the means of attaining it, back into your conscious mind.
Our continuing belief, desire and faith, can then take and run with the process to bring it to eventuality.
If you fail to act on the suggestion, it will be lost. It is not a passing “good thought”. It is an on-going process; your reaction will contribute to your destiny.
Of course it takes time…it has to be firmly embedded by constantly expressing the desire and belief to yourself, thus firmly planting and nurturing in the sub-conscious mind.
The object of your desire can be anything.
However, to revert to where we started, if we have (and want) the strength of character to be the best person that we can be, and that we can influence those around us to follow suit…it will happen.
I won’t go into the myriad of outcomes that we can ensure will eventuate, I just repeat the fact that the sub-conscious can not issue a judgement – it accepts exactly what you force into it – good or bad, wise or unwise, positive or negative.
The old proverb “beware of what you wish for…it just might come true”, has a lot a truth.
The book provides a solid life lesson on self determination.
No sales pitch this time; just an assurance that you do determine the course of your destiny, and you can fine tune the daily trips.
And always: never deny someone the opportunity to feel good about himself… Mass.
