The Morning Blessing: What We Think About Becomes Our Reality

The thought manifests as word; the word manifests as the deed; the deed develops into habit; and habit hardens into character; so watch the thought and its way with care, And let it spring from love Born out of concern for all beings. . . As the shadow follows the body, as we think, so we become. ~ From the Dhammapada Sayings of the Buddha

The idea that what we think about becomes our reality is not a new concept. As you can surmise from the quote above teachers, prophets, guides, parents, etc. have brought this teaching round and round and round again. The secret is believing that your thoughts manifest in all areas of your life. And indeed, failure to apply this secret is why so many attempts at creating through visualization, affirmation, and even intending come to nothing. We all have a "issue/desire" that we are working with. This week I challenge each of you to become playful in manifesting your desired objective. When we are lighthearted  the energy flows with an unbridled vitality. Engage your imagination in this playfulness. Let your divine personality design the very best, most outrageous outcome on your behalf. Often times when we were kids this is how we learned! We ran everything through our imagination and the process gifted us with a natural poise and power.

Now go back to today's quote. Forget the idea that anything - any other person, any problem, any situation or set of conditions is making you feel the way you feel! Own, even if only experimentally at first, that you feel the way you feel because you are choosing to, wittingly or unwittingly. Want to change anything? Then rekindle a sense of playfulness about the situation. Be playful with your family, your partner, your friends, your pets, your co-workers, the counter clerk at the cleaners or the fast food joint. You'll find you've stepped through a doorway into a reality of effortless fulfillment; stunning, natural efficiency; and fun. 

As peace always,

Rev. Angela


I live in a universe that is by nature abundant; this universe is by
nature loving, and it is by its very nature whole. I choose today to
realize what's always been true: that I am One with this Universe, that
I always have been one with it, and that I have access to all its good,
whenever I open my mind to receive it.

Today I awaken to my noble self, realizing that I am a powerful center
of creative energy in this universe, a place where life is delighted to
flow and flow with ease. I stop playing small, and realize that I can
gift myself anything in the world, and I do it with joy and with the
knowing and believing that as imagination flows through me, I align
with creation,  it's not of my own creation, but of Spirit. I receive each
gift, whatever its form, freely. Whether it is presents from my children,
offering my best in my work, loving my partner with all of my heart, or
finding abundance, I do it with the full and complete understanding that
Spirit and I playfully conduct this action through me.

I relax in the knowing that everything is just fine, that the power of
Spirit is thought+full+ly flowing through me, that this universe is a
safe and wonderful place to be. And my life blossoms in joy. And so it is.
