So why do the work of training your mind and choosing the thoughts you allow into your mind? Why bother?
It is work, yes, and it takes constant effort and never giving up, but it is what changes our experience.
The law of the mind is that what you sow, you reap, what you put out you get back.
The choice is, focus on what you don’t like and get more and more of it or do the work to focus your mind on what you do want and get more and more of this.
Working to choose the thoughts we allow into our minds is demanding of us. It brings out new strengths, propelling us forward out of the quagmire of powerlessness.
