Access Point <Where are you heading?>
“If you don't change your thoughts, you may wind up where you are heading."
- James K. McPartland
All things in life arise in language, and the most powerful words we speak are the words we speak to ourselves. Most of us think about our problems, what has to be fixed, what's not working, and the lack of time to get to the things we would prefer to spend time on. We worry, and worry is a form of mediation. What we think about we bring about, especially those things that have a strong emotional charge tied to them. Spend time thinking about what you have been thinking about. You may find that you are creating more of what you don't want purely because you are focusing on it. Everything that we have in our life began as a thought. Our thoughts are that powerful. Standing guard at the gate of our mind may be the most important stand that we will ever take.
