Thoughts of the mind left unattended take on a life of their own.
Our role, nay, our moral obligation, is to control such thoughts. Those revealing themselves to be negative or unkind will find no haven. Uppermost are thoughts of a positive and loving Nature; those which inspire us to always look for the good in others. Of a sudden our outlook on life is viewed as if from a mountaintop midst glorious rays of sunshine. We can but give thanks to God.

Isn’t it amazing when out-of-the-blue, without realizing it, your thoughts have taken you on a journey to a past experience. You remember it, you feel it. The other morning I awoke to a disturbing memory. I could feel being pulled into the replay scene on the screen of my mind.
Thank God for friends who share their tried and true wisdom. A short time ago, Mary said, “if a robber comes to your door, would you let him in?” “NO,” I said. “Well, why do you let your thoughts rob you of joy and happiness?” Mary then quoted *Mary Baker Eddy – “Stand porter at the door of thought… ” This simple quote saves me every time ! blw
