Where Can I Find Hope?

The Dow dropped 20 points today; a three year old is now missing, and mother has been arrested and refuses to tell where child is; Unemployment is at the highest it has ever been. I could go on and on.

Watching news broadcast doesn’t give us much to hope for. Hope is the expectation of a desirable outcome, a desire for something good, and a belief that it is obtainable.

Having hope is not as easy as it sounds. Believing in something you cannot see, sums up the definition of hope. How can you have hope when you have lost your job, or you’ve lost a loved one, gone through a divorce, lonely, have no peace of mind, in a bad marriage, and the list could go on and on. So how can we get to a place where we find something in the mist of all our problems to hope for?

We must first, start with our thinking. In other words our perception of life and our situation must change. Thinking is a way of reasoning, a thought or judgment. Everything we do, consciously or subconsciously, we think about it first.

It begins with a thought and when we think on a particular desire long enough, we bring that thought into action. Then the actions become habits, and habits determine our destiny. Change your thinking change your life!

I know there are a ton of self help books, websites, articles etc., on changing the mindset. You must find the right fit for you. I’m not writing this article to sell you a self help book or program. However, I do believe that there are things we must do in order to change our thinking.

Not just think about wanting to change, but putting some things into action. The first think is to determine what is that you want out of life. What are you hoping for deep down in your heart that you don’t think could ever come into manifestation in your life?

What are the thoughts of your heart? Yes, your heart thinks! Take an inventory of your heart. Are the thoughts of your heart good or bad? Are you going to allow circumstances, or people to determine your future? Yes, we do have a choice, and the choice is yours. Begin to the clean up the thoughts of your heart.

Your heart is the real you. This is where you will find satisfaction and happiness. This is where you will find inner joy, peace and began to lead a full and productive life. Thinking with your heart will lead to soundness of mind. This does not negate the outer life. This will allow the outer life to be the manifestation of the divine life within us.
