Mind your thoughts

Mind your thoughts. Young woman in window sits thinking about life.

Our world is the external projection of our thoughts; I am hungry becomes you eating. I am scared of you hiding under the bed; I will ace that interview becomes you preparing to ace that interview. Thoughts are the basic unit of anything we do; they come first before any action. If we understand our thoughts, we can ideally change our lives forever. What kinds of thought? On a typical day, several thoughts cross our minds. From thinking about feeding the cat to thinking about the work that awaits us in the office to how we will strangle our best friend for leaving us with that girl, she set us up with. Most of what we think about, however, does not register and stays in our minds for a very short time. If you were asked what you thought about at 2:17 pm five days ago, you are not likely...

Several great people from the past to the present have had some morning routine, from Benjamin Franklin to Arianna Huffington. It would be safe, therefore, to say that this contributed to their incredible success. A morning routine is a series of things you do in the morning before going to your place of work. That said, you already have a morning routine. Several people have a morning routine that looks like this: wake up, hit the snooze button of the alarm, and sleep for another 30 minutes. Finally wake up, pick up the phone, check out what is interesting, find out you have little time to get to work, rush up and down the house trying to get ready for work. Are stuck in traffic and finally get late to work where someone then tells you that you forgot to rinse the shampoo of your head and that you are...

Compassion, Empathy and Sympathy. Woman comforts another by clasping hands.

Compassion, empathy, or sympathy are like close cousins. The three of them do carry different meanings but are very much related to each other, and this is the reason why people use these words for the same purpose. These three can be defined as the stages. The first stage is sympathy, which means to understand the problem/suffering, the second one is the empathy it means to be able to feel the pain, and the last one is compassion, which says, having enough courage to provide the solution. What is compassion? Compassion refers to the ability to feel the pain of the other. The person who feel compassionate for someone he not only feels the suffering of another person is going through but also provides the remedy through which he could get rid of such pain. Often, compassion is confused with that of empathy, but both of them carry a different...

Importance of having a Clear Conscience

Darryl Bachmeier Mar 22, 2020 Mind

The knowledge of doing good or bad is hinged on a system that is seated somewhere within us. When we do something not quite praiseworthy, we end up having questions in our heart- more like an inner critic (judge). This system in our souls was created by God to help check every act of ours. It raises alarms when we act unbecomingly. This internal system within us is the CONSCIENCE. What it actually means At birth, our conscience was clear, with no corruption or a sense of guilt. Along the line, we began to learn the right things and those that are wrong. A clear conscience means a conscience void of the guilt of a wrong done. This simple meaning can be extended to both God and man. With a clear conscience, we can stand before God and men with no accusation coming to obstruct our relationship with them. Conscience...
