"Men imagine that thought can be kept secret, but it cannot; it rapidly crystallises into habit, and habit solidifies into circumstance. Bestial thoughts crystallise into habits of drunkeness and sensuality, which solidify into circumstances of destination and disease: impure thoughts of every kind crystallise into enervating and confusing habits, which solidify into distracting and adverse circumstances; thoughts of fear, doubt, and indecision crystallise into weak, unmanly, and irresolute habits, which solidify into circumstances of failure, indigence, and slavish dependence: lazy thoughts crystallise into habits of uncleanliness and dishonesty, which solidify into circumstances of foulness and beggary: hateful and condemnatory thoughts crystallise into habits of accusation and violence, which solidify into circumstances of injury and persecution : selfish thoughts of all kinds crystallise into circumstances more or less distressing. ON the other hand, beautiful thoughts of all kinds crystallise into habits of grace and kindliness, which solidify into genial and sunny circumstances : pure thoughts crystallise into habits of temperance and self-control, which solidify into circumstances of repose and peace : thoughts of courage, self-reliance, and decision crystallise into manly habits, which solidify into circumstances of success, plenty, and freedom : energetic thoughts crystallise into habits of cleanliness and industry, which solidify into circumstances of pleasantness : gentle and forgiving thoughts crystallise into habits of gentleness, which solidify into protective and preservative circumstances : loving and unselfish thoughts crystallise into habits of self-forgetfulness for others, which solidify into circumstances of sure and abiding prosperity and true riches.
A particular train of thought persisted in, be it good or bad, cannot fail to produce its results on the character and circumstances. A man cannot directly choose his circumstances, but he can choose his thoughts, and so indirectly, yet surely, shape his circumstances.
Nature helps every man to gratification of the thoughts which he most encourages, and opportunities are presented which will most speedily bring to the surface both the good and evil thoughts."
and James Allen goes on and on and on...As a Man Thinketh.
And essentially, it demonstrably explains the divide happening in America.
It's pretty strong stuff, actually; and pretty sure, generally speaking, that the emphasis upon the male gender throughout, creates just the kind of tension for the Left to become completely unglued: manly this, manly that, oh the horror of all the manliness of mankind and the things that men imagine about man. teehee
And yet, the truth is -- thoughts are things, man and woman alike; thoughts are mightier than the sword. [And suddenly, flashes from the movie Braveheart come rushing in...a perfect example of the power of the mind and spirit, all beginning with a thought.]
The left-leaning mainstream and cable media continues to persuade Americans to go low in every possible way -- in spite of all the good going on around them --- simply because they [and every other leftist] are so frustrated under the Trump Administration, they can no longer see straight; of course, this experience being manifested from its natural origins...being totally incapable of even thinking straight.
Yes, lefty's, you're right -- Trump is not the perfect man, let alone president; you got me there.
Welcome to my world when Obama was president; and yet, I was more or less polite and treated the office itself with respect. I waited patiently for the next election, and then the next election....
I did get up everyday and blog about all the ways Obama was a disappointment, all the ways he deceived the American people. all the ways his administration usurped the Rule of Law....but it's as if Jim Acosta had his head in the sand all those years, hearing lies from Obama on Benghazi; the IRS scandal; the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal; the viscous attacks on the Tea Party; the numerous issues of Obama's Secretary of State using an insecure private server and ultimately, destroying emails and hard drives; the continuous trashing of Fox News, the scandal of going after journalists like James Rosen and others; the unscrupulous passing of Obamacare, another entitlement, a fraud against the American people and our healthcare system, without a single republican vote....
If Only Trump had the kind of blind allegiance from the mainstream and cable news media as you all gave President Obama, if only.
I will give Trump the credit for the incredible change of thought, experienced by many of us in America; from the start of his campaign and continuing into his administration, the mantra has been MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. And guess what? It's working.
Make America Great Again or Hope and Change? One slogan supports America, as a whole; the other, frames an administration which intended to fundamentally transform America from the inside out, because it hated America as she stands.....
And talk about an escalation of harmful rhetoric.... Hillary Clinton is calling for nothing less than incivility, until such time HER side gets back in office.
And talk about an unraveling....the left leaning media is apparently fully supportive of the mob fast approaching America's southern border. And we must ask ourselves, for what reason? Why would they want this to happen now? How did it happen so quickly? Just who is funding this trek of thousands from Central America?
and then there's this kind of nonsense: "I’m way more afraid of another Melania getting in to this country than I am of any caravan of human beings seeking asylum" Andy Lassner, one of the producers of Ellen.
First, as if these people coming up from Central America warrant asylum status -- but in the second, Melania came to America fully capable, and able, of taking care of herself. I will take that kind of immigrant thousands times over...But more important, Andy, I'm not even understanding your continuous stream of vitriolic attacks against America's First Lady. What did she ever do to you?
I mean, honestly, how can this guy, Andy, even think his stupid tweets are relevant, let alone clever or funny or whatever response he was hoping to gain from them.
andy, andy, andy...
jim, jim, jim...
and leftists far and wide --
How about you all help in the making of America great again. We must do more to crystallize our greatness, and it begins with every thought, of every single one of us, in America.
ON the other hand, beautiful thoughts of all kinds crystallise into habits of grace and kindliness, which solidify into genial and sunny circumstances : pure thoughts crystallise into habits of temperance and self-control, which solidify into circumstances of repose and peace : thoughts of courage, self-reliance, and decision crystallise into manly habits, which solidify into circumstances of success, plenty, and freedom : energetic thoughts crystallise into habits of cleanliness and industry, which solidify into circumstances of pleasantness : gentle and forgiving thoughts crystallise into habits of gentleness, which solidify into protective and preservative circumstances : loving and unselfish thoughts crystallise into habits of self-forgetfulness for others, which solidify into circumstances of sure and abiding prosperity and true riches.
Start thinking like James Allen, and not like, a Jim Acosta.
Oh, And READ THIS: The Real Choice, care of Nate Jackson at The Patriot Post.
Okay then, think my work is done for today; off to my real job....teehee
Make it a Good Day, G
