My beliefs create my personal world and
give my life its meaning. They create the world as I believe it to be.
Itís my unique reality and is the only world I will ever know. I
created it and must live in it.
If I create a world full of limitations, dominated by my frailties, I
suffer. If I create a world full of possibilities and love, I prosper.
For my entire life, I am a prisoner of the world created by my thoughts.
In my personal world I choose the meaning of my life. Each event is
devoid of meaning until I decide what it means to me. The choice I make
determines whether I regard problems as catastrophes or opportunities.
There is never a good reason to interpret events in a negative manner.
No matter how negative a situation is, thinking negatively only makes it
worse. When I think positive, bad things become better things, and my
life starts to improve.
I choose the meaning of the events in my life. I choose to think
positive and to live in a positive world.

Thousands of years ago, there was no CNN. There was only the Rock News
Network known as RNN. If you wanted to inform the world of your
glorious exploits, the best way to get the message out was through the
Rock News Network. All you needed was a large sandstone outcrop and a
few primitive carving tools to inscribe your victories into stone.
In this particular set of macho petroglyphs, mounted horsemen with giant
spears extend their domain and force their enemies into submission.
Arabian horses with long flowing tails and lizard shaped men with swords
on their waists engage in eternal combat in the sandstone.
Petroglyphs reveal that humanity hasn't changed significantly over the
millennia. Power, wealth, and warfare are human trademarks
memorialized in stone.
I wonder if we will ever learn.
MY MEANING OF LIFE
1. The most powerful force in the universe is God's love.
The most positive force in the universe is God's love. The most
important fact in the universe is that God loves and accepts us
the way that we are, but He loves us too much to let us stay that way.
2. God has a dream for our lives that is better than anything we
3. We are created in the image of God, and we bear his likeness.
We can live here and now as one of his children, and we have the
privilege of calling God our Father.
4. All things work together for good when we love God. God
takes the bad things in our lives and turns them into something better.
5. God has our best interests at heart. He is truly on our
side and working to make our lives better. When we get in agreement
with his dream for our lives, awesome things start to happen.
6. God does not have a dark side. God is love and works by
love. The power and presence of God in our lives is love.
Whenever we see love, we are seeing God's hand at work in the world.
7. The mind is the door through which we enter the world of
change. When the power of God's love rolls through our heart and
mind, we become new people with a new life.
8. When our minds are full of thoughts consistent with God's love,
our minds are exactly the way God meant for them to be. When our
hearts are full of emotions consistent with God's love, our hearts are
exactly the way God meant for them to be.
9. There is no limit to how good our lives can become when the
power of God's love rolls through our heart and mind and makes us
into new people.
10. Positive thinking is the natural software for our mind.
Positive thinking truly is the right type of thinking. It's more
than a good idea. It's the way God designed our mind to work.
