How I Perceive the World
I see how much I played the victim. How much I've complained about past jobs, relationships, situations.
As I walk on my own personal path and am willing to see within, to work with who I've been, where I come from, I understand I am where I am as a result of how I thought in the past. And even so, God is benevolent with me. It's not all bad, I have not been all complaining either.
It's important for me to take this time today to apply new thought patterns, to work at seeing myself as I truly am, a son of God. It's been a mind blower to read and read and read over and over that the world I see has been created by my thoughts and perceptions. This is a totally opposite concept from anything I have ever learned before. My parents didn't know that, my teachers never taught me this. I never heard this in church. Maybe the bible teaches it, but I was not taught to see myself or the world this way.
I also realize I have a blessed and huge responsibility. As I shift my thoughts and so my perception of the world, it is only natural that I interact with my world and the people in it from a new place. A place of Love, of Light, of forgiveness. This might just be how we go about changing the world.
