A BEAUTIFUL MIND

The beauty and desire of every living human being is the symphony of thought manifest in virtuous action—to the good.

And the wonderful thing is the back-up we get in our expressed faith to grow to ascend to our potential, transcending our former selves.

And it is the Author of Life who backs us every time, surprising us when and how frequently he arrives—on-scene—to turn “on” that rich cognitive tap. We fall in love with his constancy and regularity; and so the mind is even further enriched.

This is indeed our richest spiritual investment; a well-soiled, rooted, watered and established garden of the soul; protecting its occupier—a further manifestation of God’s design of provision, sufficiency and grace.

Fear is the greatest threat to the weak mind—or should it be said, the mind in a weak momentary state. The more we invest in the health and wellbeing of our minds the less fear we will experience.

And it beckons:

“The most significant change in a person’s life is a change of attitude. Right attitudes produce right actions.”

~William J. Johnston.

The mind is central to the right attitude; absolutely pivotal. How we can derive benefit so directly from all our mind-investments is a pure marvel.

The mind is the direct channel to the spirit. We must feed our minds good and deter them from evil, waste, and mal-nourishing things which will only alienate us emotionally and spiritually.

When we make it our mission to find our purpose and then invest our minds into that venture, we find we’re rapidly invincible and that we’re very quickly transcending ourselves.
