It seems that this health care bill consists of nearly 2,000 pages. 2,000 pages can be very confusing to even the most organized and discerning mind. If a person is to find the jewels hidden in the health care bill, he must have the courage to dive in and get rid of what is confusing.
It seems that our collection of opinions and beliefs also consists of 2,000 pages (maybe more like 2,000,000 pages). If you want the jewels hidden in your vast collection of opinions and beliefs, you must have the courage to dive in and let go of what is confusing.
How do you do that? Begin by learning the difference between random thinking and consciously choosing the thoughts you ponder. Choose wisely and this one mental act will help you go through your collection of coveted opinions and beliefs in far less time than you imagine; it will also help you let go of those opinions and beliefs that don’t support your aims and aspirations. What does that leave you with? Those opinions that are jewels … those beliefs that support you with experiencing a healthy life.
I recently found a couple of jewels that I treasure:
1. I can take outer command of my life only after I have taken inner command of my collection of opinions and beliefs.
2. I am much more capable than my collection of beliefs can explain – my job is to just get out there and prove it to myself!
What jewels might you find?
