…life from my perspective
I’ve never underestimated the power of thought. I’m not talking about the kind of power than can transplant us from Earth to Mars but the kind of power that affects your mood, your experiences and your overall outlook on life. The kind of power that shapes your character and has the ability to change your circumstances and enhance your relationships. The kind of power, that when coupled with prayer and righteous deeds, allows you to form your own happiness and define your destiny. THAT’s that power that I speak of. THAT’s that power that I want. THAT’s that power that is within us all. I speak from a woman’s perspective because I am a woman and what I will share today are excerpts from the book As a Woman Thinketh by Dorothy Hulst. This book is an adaptation of James Allen’s essay As a Man Thinketh but written by a woman for women so we could identify directly and personally with Allen’s concepts.
Many of us feel sadness, hate, fear, pain, anger, loneliness and despair. I too struggle with some of these very same emotions on any given day but I don’t want them to overpower me. I don’t want them to adversely affect my interaction with others or hinder any progress I make toward becoming the best me I can be. It is also not lost on me that I have to surround myself with positive, like-minded people who can assist me in this effort otherwise my going forward WILL BE retreat. I have a photocopy of Hurst’s As a Woman Thinketh that I read 2yrs ago and I decided to pull it out again last night for positive reinforcement. I’m almost done as the book is only 70-pages but I felt compelled to share with you some of the most poignant passages as this information is TOO GOOD to hold to my chest. If you are interested in receiving a copy drop me a line at email@example.com and put MIND CONTROL in the subject header. I will email you a pdf of the essay. You will worship me after you’ve read it.
“A noble and God-like character is not a thing of favor or chance, but is the natural result of continued effort in right- thinking.”
“By the right choice and true application of thought, a woman ascends to the Divine Perfection; by the abuse and wrong application of thought, she descends below the level of the beast.”
“Every woman is where she is by the law of her being. The thoughts which she has built into her character have brought her there.”
“Circumstance DOES NOT make the woman; IT REVEALS HER to herself.”
“Women do not attract that which THEY WANT, but that which THEY ARE.”
“Not what she wishes or prays for does a woman get but what she justly earns. Her wishes and prayers are only gratified and answered when they harmonize with her thoughts and actions.”
“Woman are anxious to improve their circumstances but are unwilling to improve themselves; therefore they remain bound.”
“Suffering is ALWAYS the effect of wrong thought in some direction. It is an indication that the individual is out of harmony with herself, with the Law of her being. The sole and supreme use of suffering is to purify, to burn out all that is useless and impure.””
“A woman cannot directly choose her circumstances but she can choose her thoughts, and so indirectly, yet surely, shape her circumstances.”
If your appetite is whet then I have done my job. Until tomorrow youngn’s.
