Hope you have followed the posts the last two days on becoming prosperity as opposed to trying to attract it. They speak to our ability to manifest the things we want and how we control our own destiny. And then there’s Hurricane Irene…
This is a Tweet I sent out earlier today:
Dear Irene: my softball team has an important game tonight. Can you track a little more to the right? KThanksBye
Now every 20 minutes or so, a feeder band of showers rolls through deluging the area, the winds are picking up, and the games are canceled. So my power to manifest everything that happens to me has obviously been seriously challenged by this hurricane. (Which is really pissing me off…)
And while I had fun with the topic, we need to realize that the storm does pose some serious danger to others. It’s a category 3 storm and today it’s been pounding the northwest Bahamas and will likely hit somewhere around the Carolinas or north by the weekend. So there are a lot of people facing danger a lot more serious than a rescheduled ballgame. They could use our positive thoughts and prayers.
It is events like this, the Japanese earthquake and tsunami, and other natural disasters that raise some fascinating questions about how much of what happens to us – good or bad – we are responsible for.
Being such a big proponent of the power of mind, I believe we have tremendous control over what we manifest. We think our thoughts are secret, but they’re actually quite transparent to those advanced enough to discern them.
Your thoughts turn into habits, and your habits turn into your circumstances. It’s that way, and it works that way all the time, with no exception.
Is everyone in the path of a hurricane or earthquake responsible for manifesting that? Everyone that goes down in a plane crash? A baby born with AIDS?
Where does the line between what we manifest for ourselves and where we are collateral damage to a bigger event fall? Are we chosen to experience some bad things to learn lessons for ourselves or sometimes to teach them for others? Please share your thoughts below.
