You Are What You Think

You Are What You Think
by Starcat

To a large extent, what you focus on is what you become. It’s the same concept as “you are what you eat.” If, for example, you choose to indulge in worrying, day after day, your fears will step up and seem to justify what you’ve been hoping to avoid. In the same way, if you put your focus on gratitude for the blessings in your life, they will begin to increase and multiply.

You might find this a heavy concept, or think that somehow you’re “to blame” for what happens to you. Not at all. There are things in life, like the proverbial death and taxes, that are not negotiable.

What you can change, though, is your response, and thus your energy vibration. When you change your focus, you are more in tune with what you’re now thinking about and feeling. Those things will then be drawn to you.

It’s not instantaneous (or not usually, anyway). It’s a matter of practice. As you continually bring yourself back into a better-feeling state of mind, your consciousness will become accustomed to this new way of thinking.

Through steady attention, you will discover that your life is actually rather wonderful. You’ll be more aware of the daily blessings that surround you, more open to new connections, and you’ll have more fun.

There is so much in life that seems out of our control. So why not let the external stuff go and focus within? If anything is within your control, it’s what goes on in your very own mind. I’m not saying to become a dictator and stifle your natural feelings. But rather, through gentle, compassionate practice, you can turn your mind into a joyful space. You can open yourself up to love, creativity, and delight.

Yes, it will be hard work, and you’ll stumble at times. But as one who walks this path, practicing presence and letting go of worry, I can assure you that it’s more than worth it.
