around 2006, there was a video “The Secret” (as told by Oprah) that became quite popular. This video is quite long, but thought provoking. Here, I’ll tell you The Secret –The Law of Attraction. Simply stated: Thoughts are electromagnetic waves, every thought we have spreads to and affects our surroundings, and this is why our thinking affects the universe. The movie repeatedly shows people who, as they visualize their goals, generate a wave or signal that emanates from their heads. In some of the cases, this wave is seen to spread over the entire Earth.
Be careful what you think.
Negative thoughts such as, fear, doubt, selfishness, hate, anger, critical of others, revenge; are very POWERFUL thoughts and can destroy you and influence those around you.
“If we think negative thoughts, we develop negative minds. If we think depraved thoughts, we develop depraved minds. On the other hand, if we think celestial thoughts, which are the kind of thoughts that God thinks, then we develop celestial minds.” (Sterling W. Sill, “The Poetry of Success,’ Ensign, May 1978)
“Negative Thoughts” cause a “Negative Mind” which in turn can cause a “Negative Spirit Body” and “Negative Physical Body.” (See Anatomy of the Soul )
CUMULATIVE EFFECT OF THOUGHTS
It has been my experience – Alter your thoughts and you will be surprised at the transformation it will have upon your life and your circumstances.
You may think that your thoughts can be kept secret.
Your thoughts very quickly form behavior which we all can see.
“If one thinks it long enough he is likely to do it…Thus the time to protect against the calamity is when the thought begins to shape itself. Destroy the seed and the plant will never grow.” (Spencer W. Kimball, “As A Man Thinketh” in Miracle of Forgiveness)
“Contentment, complacency, peace—all that makes life worth living—have their source in the mind of the individual” (David O’ McKay, “Pathways to Happiness” pg. 320)
“Success in life depends upon the management of your thoughts. Your very salvation depends upon it.” (Boyd K. Packer, That All Might Be Edified, pg. 32)
“You tell me your thoughts, and I will tell you your future.” (Milton R. Hunter, “As a Man Thinketh“, Conference Report, October 1946, pg. 40)
And perhaps the most powerful thought about thoughts:
“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.” (Prov. 23:7)
CONTROL OUR THOUGHTS
As you learn to control your thoughts, you can overcome habits, even degrading personal habits. You can gain courage, conquer fear, and have a happy life. … the mind is like a stage. During every waking moment the curtain is up. There is always some act being performed on that stage. It may be a comedy, a tragedy, interesting or dull, good or bad; but always there is some act playing on the stage of your mind…. (Boyd K. Packer, “The Message: Worthy Music, Worthy Thoughts,” New Era, Apr 2008)
Here is a great video “Worthy Thoughts” about controlling thoughts by Boyd K. Packer:
(Those of you who may be suffering from a Physical body illness – like mental illness – don’t be discouraged when controlling certain thoughts is much more difficult and at times impossible … Review “FREE- According to the flesh.“)
You can only think of one thing at a time.
Every time you think a good thought, there is no room for a bad one.
