The News Diet

– How many times a day, do you watch the news on TV?

– How many times a day, do you listen to the news on the radio?

– How much time do you spend reading the newspapers everyday?

– Are you a news addict?

– Do you really need to stuff your mind with so many details every day?

– Do you need all the strain, stress and fears caused by watching the news?

– Will you be able to change events and the world by listening to the news?

There are many people who feel the need to watch, listen, read and discuss the news, important matters and also trivial matters. This habit makes it difficult to control the mind and weakens the ability to concentrate. This habit also prevents you from experiencing inner peace, since your mind constantly buzzes with details of the news, and because the news makes you stressed strained, anxious and often unhappy.

I am not suggesting that you stop being interested in what is going in the world. I am not suggesting that you close your eyes and your mind. Living in the world, you need to know what is going on in the world, but you can limit the time you spend watching, listening or reading the news, by exercising a “news diet”.

Pasta Sauce Is Stronger than Steel

A few days ago I have prepared my own recipe of pasta sauce, and when I finished cooking it, removed it from the electric cooker and I put a lid on it, to keep it warm, because I had to go and bring my wife from the train station.

I went to change clothes, and then, just before leaving, I wanted to open the lid, but couldn’t, because the lid fit the pan so perfectly, not allowing the steam to escape, which prevented the lid from being opened.

Your Thoughts Create Your Reality

The thoughts you think most often create your reality.

For every external effect there is an inner cause: Your thoughts. In other words, the conditions and circumstances of your life are as a result of your thoughts and beliefs. How can you utilize this law of nature? By being conscious of your thoughts, avoiding the negative and pursuing the positive, and also by using the laws of creative visualization, or using today’s term for this not new technique, the law of attraction.

Creative visualization is a mental technique that uses the powers of the mind and the imagination to create what we want in our life. With the help of this technique we can shape our life, character and circumstances, and attract opportunities, people and the things we desire.

This technique is similar to daydreaming. In both of them we create imaginary mental scenarios of events and situations, just like a movie, but with the difference that with creative visualization we use certain rules and techniques that enable us to create these mental scenarios and events as reality in our life. Through this techniques your thoughts can create your reality.

The thoughts we most often think create the circumstances and events of our life. When you become familiar with the mental laws of success, and learn how to visualize what you really want, you will then be able to improve your life and create success. You become the conscious creator of your life.
