Doesn’t it stand to reason that our minds play an important role in who we are and what we become in life? One of the greatest proverbs of the Bible states, “For as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” Our minds are the most powerful thing we possess and the single most determinant of whether or not we reach our destiny. We can only be to the extent that we can think.
Our minds have the capacity to take in information, filter it, and send messages to direct our bodies into action. If our minds are not disciplined and trained to guide us in healthy, beneficial ways, then our potential will be lulled to sleep by our inability to affect our own learning and growth.
Each one of life’s situations is an opportunity for us to grow into healthier, more mindful people. Whether the experience is euphoric or traumatic, it presents us with a chance to utilize our minds to affect change and become better than we were before. Every circumstance comes with purpose, and gleaning from its impact is a powerful way to train our minds toward maturity and apt development.
The mind is an amazingly complex tool that if used wisely can lead to a life of great prosperity and well-being. However, the mind can be as deadly as a loaded weapon aimed at vital organs poised for the kill if it is not disciplined correctly. It can affect our physical health and well-being, robbing us of the power of joy.
What do you use your mind for?
Are you shaping your thoughts to reflect the person you want to be? Are you living in freedom and thinking on things that can produce the best version of yourself at this point in your life?
The Buddha once said, “We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.”
Whose footsteps do you hear behind you?
