“…But to be my own master, such a thing would be greater than all the magic and all the treasures in all the world”
Another amazing quote from Alladin – I told you truth was everywhere! To be our own master – isn’t that what we all want?
There is a, sometimes, predictable pattern of insight as people start to hear about these principles behind life. The most common one is that people hear the principle of thought and believe that, in order to be happy, less anxious and have a better life, they need to control their thinking.
And for a short period of time that seems like a good option and we might feel better in ourselves.
I have had a number of conversations with people who, after having spent some time trying to control their thinking, are a little disheartened because it really isn’t that easy after all.
They believe that control their thinking leads to becoming their own master, that this is the answer to peace in their lives.
Seeing that our experience is thought created is only the very first piece of the puzzle here. When we look deeper at how this system, these principles, works we start to see that we don’t need to control our thoughts to be our own masters. We simply look to understand that it is thought that creates our feeling, our experience and to know that it is built into the system that thought changes.
When we know this simple truth – thought changes – we do not have to do anything at all.
It is done for us. Thought changes. New experience is available.
And this is when we become our own masters. Because now we are free to do whatever makes sense to us to do, with whatever thinking we have, in any given moment.
This is greater than all the magic and all the treasures in all the world!!!!!!!
