I’m not going to lie, my friends. There’s no sugar coating what’s happening in Ukraine right now. As a history major back in the day and a lifelong history buff, there’s much hopeful or positive that can be said about a war in Europe in 2022.
There’s a ton of shoulda, woulda, coulda that might have prevented this outcome. Now that it’s begun, no one can really predict where this ends up.
The best we can do is put our minds on our side. Our minds do literally create our world. If we want peace to prevail, it must first prevail within us.
These affirmations were written for a moment like this. May they put momentum for peace back in your heart and your mind.
There’s something very important we must all understand. They don’t teach it in schools, but great teachers have said it for thousands of years. Our thoughts create our world. It’s true individually and it’s most assuredly true collectively. When hundreds of millions of people believe something strongly enough and long enough, it’s going to show up in our world.
It’s true of a beautiful new civilization or dystopia. It’s true of war and peace. It’s true of a booming economy or recession. Our mechanistic paradigms have convinced most that what goes on in our minds does not affect what goes out there in the world.
They say when you don’t learn a lesson in life, the universe keeps presenting it over and again. As you look at the headlines tonight, be clear. All of this didn’t just happen. It didn’t just happen because of who is in office or who is not.
It’s happening because thoughts become things. Arrogant thoughts become an inability to listen to each other and solve our problems in ways that move us forward, painting us into a corner where we act from our lowest instincts.
The answer is counterintuitive to people who hold positions of power and authority in our world. They got where they are by listening to ego. They don’t understand the power of thought nor modalities of thinking and listening and solving that could flip the script on this planet in an instant.
So, what do we do now? The results of this thinking are already out in the world causing the problems they’re causing. We all – in every country involved in this unfolding conflict – must make it clear to leaders that this direction is unacceptable and we won’t stand for it.
Finally, we must lay the groundwork for a new, better tomorrow with our thinking today. As Einstein suggested, our thinking created these situations. Only different thinking can shift it and transform it.
There’s a well-known aphorism that we can do whatever we put our minds to. This affirmation builds on that idea. Listened to regularly, it infuses your mind with the belief that by taking it slow and being patient, you can achieve whatever you set your mind to.
The video begins with visions of innovative things here on Earth before journeying out into the solar system and the cosmos beyond. The background music is spacey and meditative and includes a constant theta wave track beneath the music.
First-person: One step at a time and one breath at a time, I achieve everything I set my mind to. Second-person: One step at a time and one breath at a time, you achieve everything you set your mind to.
Wherever you are on your journey today, know that you’re always a better thought away from a better day.
Good evening, my friends. I know that’s a big claim in the title. I really believe, though, that if you read these thoughts, ponder them, and flow with the implications they will shift more than your week.
Wherever you are on your journey today, remember you’re awesome!
I was honored this afternoon to join my friend, Omar Faizi, on his show Watcher’s Talk. We had a wide-ranging discussion on the power of thought. Never in human history, has the potential of our thinking to transform or destroy our world and our lives been more evident.
We discussed some very practical ways to shift the direction of your life and our world.
Wherever you are on your journey today, remember you are awesome!
