Providing electricity to a device activates the device and produces an effect. So it is also with oneself, the brain being the source of electricity. The world without, however, is only as good as the electricity which the brain provides. We determine the “wattage” of our brain based on the components we use to generate the current, namely what we consciously think about. The brain determines the amount of wattage, but we are responsible for the quality of the current.
We determine the quality of the current by what we allow into our mind. Other’s thoughts and opinions, media, friends, family, and other external components all determine the quality of the current which our brain possesses.
I love the quote at the end of the lesson.
“That a man can change himself, improve himself, re-create himself, control his environment, and master his own destiny is the conclusion of every mind who is wide awake to the power of right thought in constructive action.” (Larsen)
