Thoughts are Things
Health and sickness are largely externalizations of our dominant mental and spiritual states. An emotional shock, or a mind filled with thoughts of fear, has been known to cause the momentary stoppage or acceleration of the heart. Physicians now testify that, under emotional stress, particularly anger, the blood leaves a chemical deposit around the joints in the body.
Worry, fear, anger, jealousy, and other emotional conditions, are mental in their nature and are being recognized as the hidden cause of a large part of all the physical suffering to which the flesh is the heir. A normal healthy mind reflects itself in a healthy body, and conversely, an abnormal mental state expresses its corresponding condition in some physical condition. Thoughts are things.
Cause and Effect
We are given the power to sit in the midst of our lives and direct their activities. Strife and struggle are unnecessary. We only need to know, but we must know constructively. The material universe was created to manifest what the mind believes. Just so far as we believe upon any condition, past, present, or future we are creating chaos because we are then dealing with conditions (effects) and not the causes. It’s our thinking that causes the effects. And we think the way we do because of our beliefs.
Is it the Ego holding you back
Who told you you’re too old to build muscle tone? Who told you that steam and saunas are bad. Who told you that losing flexibility and balance are just a sign of aging? Whoever it was is lying to you, and if you continue to believe it, it’s because you want to believe it. That dis-empowering belief is comfortable and warm and you’re used to it. The ego is telling you can’t and so you won’t, it says you’ll look foolish or who do you think you are? The ego hates change, it fears that change will push it off the stage and your ego loves the stage. And for years all your ego has been doing is making you sick.
Your Mind can grow Stronger so can you
It’s time to take control of your mind. Understanding how our minds work is a science and we are finding out more about how it works on almost a daily basis. Elkhonon Goldberg in his book “The Wisdom Paradox; How your mind can grow stronger as your brain grows older”, discusses how outdated neurological concepts are being disproved on a daily basis. Science has disproved the idea that we are only given so many brain cells and when they die they don’t regenerate new ones. It’s a lie. Reading his book will change the way you think about aging and your thinking capabilities.
60 is the new 50
If you can buy into that then it isn’t such a leap to think that 70 is the new 60. With the advances in health care and changing consciousness, especially within the Baby Boomer generation, it’s becoming clear that you are what you believe you are. And if you not happy you can change starting NOW. I’m passionate about showing my generation that we don’t have to go meekly into the shadows but instead stay in the sunlight of the spirit for many more years than we may have originally thought possible. So if all of a sudden you realize you have another 20 productive years ahead of you, what do you want to do about it? Don’t die with your dream inside you.
Follow me as I challenge dis-empowering beliefs about what it means to grow old in our society today and how some of our so-called advocates are nothing more than shills for huge corporate interests. Some first and foremost dis-empowering beliefs we have to deal with is what it means to be fit.
And how you can go about it, and have fun.
