Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
I don’t know the source of this message, but I know that it is important. We must be constantly aware of how we are feeling. If we become dominated by negative thoughts, we will transmit them. They will become who we are. They will spread the negativity to those around us, including the ones we love.
It is important to not only be aware, but to take the proper actions of transforming these negative thoughts. This includes prayer. I am not talking about the prayer formula that we were taught in church and Sunday school. I am talking about the prayer of quiet. Going into our “inner room” where we have our conscious contact with God. There we find the next right step to transform the negative into the positive.
When we transform ourselves, we help to transform the world around us. When we transmits positivity, in the forms of love, mercy, generosity, forgiveness, our world becomes a better place.
There is enough hate, resentment, greed, and fear in our nation, we do not need to help contribute to this. Instead, we should be the agents of change, through the power of true prayer and transformation.
