As long as we believe that we must compete for our good or even survival, we are locked in a universe of our own creation where we must prove our value or deservingness. Since the universe responds to our every belief, it does indeed create those experiences and relationships that support that which we believe, until we change our mind. You have a thought, you believe it, it becomes a belief. You have a thought, you don't believe it, it passes - not a belief. Fortunately, we are free to choose what thoughts we believe. Insanity is believing all your thoughts. Brilliance is consciously choosing the thoughts you want to make beliefs.
In grace & gratitude,
