Image       Albert Einstein, one of my favorite theorists once said, “The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”  I agree. My world, the world I wake up to everyday is a direct product/process of my thinking. That only changes when I allow someone else to take control. Someone else might be my husband, who knows exactly what I enjoy the most, or my mother, who does not care about what I like; that is her job. When I find I am the least satisfied, my world, this world is spinning on a crooked axis with unwanted controllers who generally do not have my best interests in mind. Those controllers think only of themselves a character trait with which I am completely against. I am firmly rooted in the benefits of placing others before myself. And I am therefore reminded that Love requires me to accept controllers for who they are even if I despise their actions against me. Such thinking makes my world shaky at times but I continue working towards that better end. There is much in the world around me that I cannot control and can only ask for GOD’s favor. Hmm. So here and now I am changing my thinking. I no longer want to be the patsy for the malfunctioning or misfitted controllers who believe themselves right because someone else has ensured them they were. I am changing my thinking to suit Biblical instructions, ” whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” From this place forward, I want my world to be built around the beauty of the Gospel. Nothing more, nothing less. Is it possible? A life more intentional perhaps. We will see at 54 and counting – “Cogito ergo sum”  (“I think therefore I exist”. René Descartes.)
