Your Own Truth

I bought a copy of The Amazing Power of Deliberate Intent by Esther & Jerry Hicks recently. My attempts to understand a lot of what is in this book requires concentration and so far, I'm not sure I agree with all that I have read. That said, one thing did jump out at me in the Preface written by Jerry about understanding that you create your own truth. I'll paraphrase some of what he said.

"Truths are but beliefs that have been held for a time, and beliefs are but thoughts that have been held over a period of time."

This I can agree with. Stop and think about negative thoughts that were implanted in you by others, some of which began in childhood. You're not pretty enough, smart enough, or whatever the "Nots" were that you heard day after day. Didn't you come to believe them over a course of time and eventually accept that as truth? the time to start your own new set of truths. It begins with a thought...I am...I can...and you grow it from there into a belief and then into your own truth!

Join me in making this a New Year Resolution. I've already started. Are you ready to join me?
