If your thoughts are prayers, then you are always praying. Consider that possibility for a moment. For what, are you praying? If you were to create a tapestry of your thoughts, words and actions, how would you categorize the work? What are the patterns that constitute your life?
No matter what your spiritual beliefs, you will probably agree that thoughts create. Nothing exists that was not preceded by a thought. If it is true that thoughts are governed by the creative force within (or ARE the creative force), then it seems that it would be more effective to govern our thoughts, rather than falling into patterns of unconscious anarchy.
Use today as a blank canvas. In this moment (yes, right now), give thought to what you wish to create. Let go of the concerns of HOW you will manage it; simply think in terms of what you want. Use your imagination to infuse these thoughts with enthusiasm and vitality. Allow your self to indulge your multi-sensory nature. See, smell, hear and even taste your dream. Do you feel your heart beginning to beat a little faster? You may even hear the voices of "logic" (naysayers!) getting louder in your head. Do not allow the doubt to detour you. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Success or sabotage? Big success results from big dreams. Do not mistake cynicism for insight.
Is this going to be an incredible day? As you think, so shall you be!
