Keys to this Lesson
Start to let go of the belief that our thoughts have no effect.
Everything we see is because of our thoughts.
Think of a movie projector.
Our thoughts are the film, our eyes the projector onto the screen of the world.
Jesus notes here –
Thoughts are not big, little, powerful, weak.
Either true or false, that’s it.
Every thought you have either extends the truth or multiplies illusions.
Think of that.
100 x 0 is still ZERO.
1000 x 0 is still ZERO, nothing, nada.
Same with 1,000,000 x 0.
We have to recognize that our thoughts bring either love or fear.
Neutral result is impossible.
Our thoughts are not neutral.
Search mind for a minute or so.
Do not overlook any thought.
May seem hard but persevere.
EVERY thought is perfect for this application.
Repeat idea to yourself.
I have no neutral thoughts.
This thought about the football game is not a neutral thought.
That thought about my sister is not a neutral thought.
Use the idea when you become uneasy.
This thought about the cruise liner crashing in Italy is not a neutral thought, because I have no neutral thoughts.
