"All that we are..."

"...arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world." ---Siddhartha Gautama, The Buddha

Regardless of what one's philosophy or faith is, some things are tough to deny. Boil this concept down to the most simple explanation: Our thoughts lead towards how we act, feel, exist. If we predominantly think of ourselves as being unlucky or poor, this affects choices we make that often lead towards our being unlucky or poor. We get stuck in these vicious cycles, thousands and thousands of different cycles. With all the increasing attention on The Law of Attraction, due to wildly-successful movies like The Secret, so much controversy continues over the power of our thoughts as they affect our daily lives.

I think it's not important whether one believes any one definition of "The Law of Attraction"-this is best left up to personal experience on everyone's part. Some will stick with strict science, others will keep their faith. In every aspect of life, you can witness for yourself that changing how you practice your thoughts leads towards your life changing, for better or worse depending on what you pick.

We can leave debate elsewhere, on whether ALL things that OCCUR to us are a result of what we have thought. Our thoughts control who we are as individuals.

You are the sculptor, how do you want to shape yourself, using all that you experience as tools?

I cannot agree with this more. I believe that much of what happens in our lives is dependent upon how we approach it with our thoughts and actions. Sure, bad things will happen in any persons life, but it is our responses to these events that will determine what lessons we will gain and how we will go on living our lives.

I also agree.

The one thing we can control is our attitude and our approach and our response. Everything else is a manipulation of someone else's desire. Why fulfill that?
