Every single thought you have can be assessed in terms of whether it strengthens or weakens you. Authentic wisdom is the ability to monitor yourself at all times to determine your relative state of weakness or strength, and to shift out of those thoughts that weaken you. In this way, you keep yourself in an upbeat, higher state of consciousness, and you prevent your thoughts from weakening every single organ of your body. When you use your mind to empower you, you're appealing to that which uplifts and raises your spirits.
Summer is a wonderful time to rejuvenate our bodies in the warm rays of the sun and renew our thoughts for a more prosperous and abundant life. I wanted to share an important lesson I learned while writing Wishes Fulfilled.
33rd Verse One who understands others has knowledge; one who understands himself has wisdom. Mastering others requires force; mastering the self needs strength. If you realize that you have enough, you are truly rich. One who gives himself to his position surely lives long. One who gives himself to the Tao surely lives forever.
Life is no ‘brief candle’ to me; it is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.” - George Bernard Shaw (1856 – 1950)
