Regardless of what messages we may be hearing out in world, we can hone our magic wands, our thoughts, so they bring us a good and joyful life. Our thoughts are actual things and they have a very tangible effect on what we get. We have choice to think fear thoughts or fortune thoughts.
The Golden Key To Happiness
What do we do when we are having thoughts about things we do not want to attract to us? Say we are concerned about our finances and fearing our lack of money. Fearing something invites it.
Okay, so what do we do instead? We think about what we want instead of what we are fearing.
Perhaps we do not know what we want? Surprisingly, this is a problem with many people. You say to them, "Here is a magic wand. You can have anything you wish." They do not know what to wish for.
Until you know what you desire, here’s a simple alternative method when you find yourself thinking of things you do not want. Emmet Fox describes Golden Key: "Stop thinking about difficulty, whatever it is, and think about God instead." Fox says that this Golden Key will get you out of any difficulty.
For those who do not believe in God, think of wisdom, truth, love, joy — something powerful and good.
Sometimes thought of things negative are so persistent you do not seem to be able to use Golden Key.
Sarah was very upset at a person, too upset to turn to any lofty thoughts at all. As she filled a glass with water at sink, her eyes rested on a spice bottle. She began to appreciate red letters that spelled out “Cayenne Pepper.” By turning to red of letters, she was able to lose thoughts that had been upsetting her.
If you are overwhelmed with negative thoughts, find anything positive in your environment, no matter how seemingly trivial, and use it as your Golden Key.
The Simple Truth
Distill, purify, and refine your thoughts and you can have that of which you have only dreamed before.
“Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily Life is but a dream.”
