It seems as if everywhere we look the message is “Ain’t it awful—what a terrible condition our families, our politics, our world are in.” War, famine, poverty, racial prejudice, genocide, and homicide are some of the pictures we typically see. Could it be that the prevalence of these images is simply supporting the fact that people generally are not aware of their brilliance?
Our social consciousness only holds memories, beliefs, and perceptions from the past. Can you see how limiting this understanding might be? All the fears, worries, and concerns of our world are projected on the screen of the social consciousness. When we keep our attention focused on these programs, they create the pictures we see, the stories we hear, and the feelings we have. We are destined to continually repeat the past until we shift our focus beyond our computer thinking and return to our brilliance.
We create our lives and our world through our thinking. “Thoughts are things!” Understanding thinking requires that we become aware of the thoughts we are focused on. We don’t have to “think about our thinking.” We only need to be able to recognize the thoughts that draw our attention so we can make a choice about them. By choosing the thoughts we want to focus on we choose what we want to create in our lives.
When we begin to see the possibilities before us, we have connected with our brilliance, Source, the essence of who we truly are. We realize there is hope for healthy, happy relationships and that our homes, our work environments, and our communities can become supportive, productive, and joyful. We step beyond our limiting beliefs and become creators in our world rather than victims. When enough of us create our lives from Source, the world around us cannot help but reflect this transformed understanding.
