It’s very strange that we go about our daily activities and actions without realizing the underlying cause of all human actions. You are who you are because of your thoughts. Thoughts are responsible for the choices you make every day whether good or bad. Every human action is always preceded by thought, whether good or bad.
People tend to blame the devil (Satan) or karma for the bad things that transpire in their lives, but they rarely analyze their own actions. I’m not saying that everything bad that transpires in your life is due to your own actions; I understand that some of the suffering we see in this planet is due to someone else’s actions or nefarious behavior.
People will always use the devil or karma as a scapegoat when something inexplicably bad happens to them. We as people need to understand that bad things happen all the time, after all life happens to everyone. Most of the suffering I see in this planet is just other peoples inhumanity inflicted on the lives of other people. All I know is that our power of free will gives us a choice to do good or bad, but some choose the bad nature to conquer their lives, making lives of other people a burden.
We are all the same the only thing that makes us different is our thought processes. No two people in this universe think in the same manner. Our actions are a reflection of what we perpetually think. What you do on the daily basis reveals what kind of person you are, and what you habitually think. Our lives are shaped by the thoughts we predominately carry. The reality is that everything is in the mind.
If you think you’ll fail in a particular activity then you are more likely to fail, and if you think you’ll excel then you have a greater chance of excelling. What people don’t realize is that their thinking patterns determine their disposition. You are what you habitually think or what you repeatedly tell yourself. Your life is reflected by what you think. If your thoughts are peaceful and kind, then you also radiate peace and serenity around you. This also applies to bitter and unpalatable people.
The reason why I don’t believe in destiny is due to freedom-of-thought every human was born with. I deeply believe that your thoughts are your life. How you react to certain circumstances will be hugely determined by how you think. Your very own thoughts can destroy you, we can easily see this when we are depressed or stressed. That’s why it’s very important to train your thoughts; you can use this power to make drastic changes in your life.
Thoughts are responsible for the person you are today. The thoughts you predominately carry will manifest deeper in your subconscious mind, and these habitual thoughts will gradually transmute into your reality. Caution: Be very alert of what you think on the daily basis, it will manifest into your greatest dream or nightmare.
