There has been a gross misconception among the ranks of humanity. Things, people, and circumstances don’t determine who you are, YOU DO!
James Allen said “Men imagine that thought can be kept secret, but it cannot. It rapidly crystallizes into habit, and habit solidifies into circumstance.” The sacred biblical text of Proverbs 23:7a says “For as he thinketh within himself, so is he…” ASV
Thinking determines being. What we think has a direct impact on our reality whether we accept it or not. God/Jehovah has created us with an ability to impact our world by thinking, imagining, speaking, and doing. Many people have placed the onus on God/Jehovah to do everything but they don’t realize that He’s delegated autonomy and free will to His creation.
Recently I was advising one of our precious young people who is headed to college next fall. The main thing I wanted her to remember is that life is about choices. When we’re underage a lot of decisions are made for us but as we get older we have more freedom to choose for ourselves. Life is interminably linked to choices. The importance of the choices we make becomes more increasingly evident as we get older. All choices have consequences connected to them and one choice can make or break you!
I see choices like seeds. Every action whether in thought, word, or deed, is seed sown into the universe. Since we speak and do what we think, mental activity has an impact on what we release into the world. If you think, speak, and do evil, you’ll reap evil. If you think, speak, and do negativity, you’ll reap negativity. If you choose to think, speak, and do wise things, you’ll reap a life of wisdom. I’m still trying to figure out why people think, speak, and do bad things, and expect to get good results. It’s a fool’s error to believe you can do what you want even when it’s wrong and get the right results. Every thought, spoken word, and physical action, is a doorway to positive or negative; good or bad; success or failure.
Your present life is a crystallized manifestation of what you think, imagine, speak, and do. If your marriage is good it’s a manifestation of what you and your spouse think, imagine, speak, and do. If you’re sad it’s a manifestation of what you think, imagine, speak, and do. If you’re challenged financially it’s a manifestation of what you think, imagine, speak, and do. If you’re struggling with addictions it’s a manifestation of what you think, imagine, speak, and do. If you’re unhappy with your life it’s a manifestation of what you think, imagine, speak, and do. If you feel disconnected from God/Jehovah it’s a manifestation of what you think, imagine, speak, and do.
Trash-talkers are; trash-thinkers with a trashy imagination, evidenced by trashy behavior. The center of your finite existence circumvolves around what you think, imagine, speak, and do. Therefore the trash-talker has to change the way he/she think, imagine, speak, and do, before transformation can really take place. Mastering yourself is a conquest of self which can yield permanent and eternal rewards. But you’ve got to work at changing dangerous and life-condemning thoughts daily. You can’t master your mouth until you master your mind. Next time I’ll discuss some of the internal roots of trash-talking.
