    Guard Our Thoughts

    James Allen, an early American philosopher in his book, As a Man Thinketh, tells how the mind controls the body. What happens to us is not fate! Our present circumstances are the results of our persistent thought patterns. All we need to do is alter our thoughts to change our life. Our circumstances come about and character is developed by our thoughts.

    Thoughts also affect our environment. If a grouch enters our presence, we feel that. Visually, a sour face displays distress and hurt thoughts within. If a positive cheerful person walks in, we feel that peace and serenity. A serene face portrays the joy that dwells in their mind.

    Thoughts of revenge, cheating, and doing wrong should be kicked out immediately. Bad thoughts bear bad fruit. Calmness of mind comes from wisdom. A tranquil character brings with it poise.

    We attract others who are like us. Bad attracts bad and good draws good people. The principle is similar to birds of a feather flock together. Like a magnet, a wayward teenager attracts thieves and evil friends.

    Mr. Allen’s parting thought is, if we can’t control ourself by our choice of thoughts, we are incapable of controlling a company.
