This day, I want to share on the mind and its capacity to transform your reality. The mind is the faculty of man’s reasoning and thoughts. It holds the power of imagination. It is responsible for processing feelings and emotions that eventually turns to our attitudes and perception. The mind plays a vital role in achieving every kind of change and transformation in life. Paul attests to this while addressing the Romans saying, ” be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind…”
Dear Purple Reader, we are constantly flooded with thoughts and information that penetrates deep into our minds from the external environment either consciously or unconsciously. These thoughts influence our overall behavior, affecting the way we think and view things, hence shapens our perception towards life.
With the mind, imagination is made possible to experience a whole world. This is an amazing power that can change your whole life. But before you can accomplish a thing using your mind power, you need to know exactly what it is you want to do. In order to focus your mind on a goal you intend to achieve, you need a clear and well defined goal. Also read, (The Power of a Clear Vision)
Apparently, in Paul’s plea to the Romans, there are negative thoughts and doubts that keep us captive, hence he says, ” be transformed by the renewing of your mind…” meaning that there is the need to filter and clear our mind of these thoughts.
Take for an instance, you intend planting seeds of oranges, you need to water them daily, and give them fertilizers so they can germinate into strong plants and then bear orange fruits for consumption, so is the mind, when you channel your mental energy into a particular thought daily, they will wax stronger and will in turn become your way of life. Thoughts of fear and doubt if watered will some day solidify into great circumstances of failure. In this light, good thoughts and actions when watered will produce good results, as bad thoughts and actions when watered will never produce good results but bad ones. It is garbage in, garbage out. James authenticates this when he said, a double-minded man, is unstable in all his ways.
Dear Purple Reader, the mind is responsible for everything that happens to man. It is the creator of everything in the world. What you imagine with faith and feelings come into being. You will be rewarded according to your faith. Hence, Mark 11:24 “Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe in your mind that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
Be careful what thought to accept, filter the negative ones, and welcome positive thinking, paint new and beautiful pictures in your mind. It is not easy but it is very much achievable.
A man is literally what he thinks, as he thinks so he is. This is to say that the power of transforming life begins first by changing how we think.
