Healing and Transformation

thoughts by byron katie

According to Byron Katie – “Thoughts have no power over us until we believe them.” 
Is that true?

For me, it is one of the most important elements in inner transformation. It is a key in understanding life. If you believe you are stupid, then you will find evidence that you are stupid.

That’s why Henry Ford famously observed – “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.”

So either way, your thoughts are crucial and the beliefs that are formulated.

Many powerful people have used their minds for creation, and it’s something we are all doing whether choosing our thoughts consciously or without conscious awareness.

What will you believe about yourself today, tomorrow, and beyond? The future is made from the quality of your thoughts in the present moment.

How can we define “belief?”

A dictionary definition:

belief – an acceptance that a statement is true or that something exists
• something one accepts as true or real; a firmly held opinion or conviction.

It seems that beliefs lend weight to thoughts. Thoughts alone are very powerful, but when we believe in them, then they become intractable truths in our lives.

Be careful what you think, but more importantly, be careful what you believe…
