GUARD THE TEMPLE OF YOUR MIND
GUARD THE TEMPLE OF YOUR MIND
What if you were in charge of guarding the King's Palace, or the Temple of the holy? How serious would you take this position?
I think you'd be would be very careful about who is allowed to enter within. You'd also be very careful to make sure that the right people are leaving the building.
While on duty, you wouldn't be texting with friends. You wouldn't be staring into space. You wouldn't be thinking about what you're going to have for your dinner, or how far away the weekend is.
You would be wide awake. Nothing gets in or out without you knowing about it. You need to protect the King. You need to protect the sanctity of the Temple. Thats your job, and your commitment.
Well then, why not act in the same way with your Mind?
Your eyes and ears are the main doorways into your Mind (including your subconscious). Don't blindly allow anything to enter into them. Don't easily be influenced by outside sources.
Likewise, be vigilant about what comes out of your mouth. What expressions do you use? How do you react to negative situations? Do you curse and sigh? Or do you take a deep breath, smile; and say something that helps the situation?
Guard everything that enters and leaves your Mind. Guard the Temple. Why do you think the sides of our heads are called temples? The mercy seat of God resides within you.
Unfortunately, some of the most cunning negative thoughts enter and leave your Mind all the time. They sometimes disguise themselves as friendly thoughts. Or at least “harmless thoughts.” It's easy to think that they are helping you. In truth, they are secretly plotting your fall.
Some of our closest and most trusted subconscious patterns may be out to ruin us. Even more difficult is dealing with all the negative subconscious thinking that has already found a seat in our subconscious Mind. How much of this did you see through your life?
The point is, self-sabotaging thoughts have already compromised your mental guard. Assassins to your happiness and success already live inside your head. They moved in a long time ago, and they are constantly renovating. That's why it's essential to know exactly WHICH experiences from your past are driving your innermost thoughts and the resulting actions.
One way to begin, is to sort out which ones are your true friends and allies, and which ones are always ready to stab you in the back.
Identify the Negative Childhood Imprints that have helped create many of the challenges in your life. This is difficult to figure out by ourselves – since the Truth may be the opposite of what we think.
Isn't it time to fill your Mind with the right subconscious thoughts so that you can become the Ruler of your own life? “As a man thinketh, it is done unto him.” Remember these words. They have stood the test of time through proof knowledge.
Guard the gate to your Mind.
Just a thought ...
