I have been speaking for quite a while about the power of our thoughts. I don’t believe anyone today will disagree that when you focus your thoughts on a specific topic, may it be positive or negative, it will reflect in your world. Obviously, we have too many thoughts going through our heads every day for all of them to be reflected (however, I am not certain of the validity of that statement, as their may be other realities in which they are reflected), but the dominant ones, the ones you are most certain about, the ones that keep coming back often, they will actualize in this world.
So anytime I read someone complain about something and blame someone else or something else (government, corporation, etc) for it, two thoughts come to mind: 1) They are bringing this more and more into their world. They are right, as this will keep showing up in their world. 2) They have given their power away. By saying something else or someone else is the cause for something, they are cancelling any chance for their own desires to come to fruition because they are telling the universe they are not in control.
Facebook has been recognized by many as a mean to educate and inspire. I agree, I use it for the same reasons. When I post something, I know there is a chance that any number of the 596 friends I have on there will read it. And some of these friends will even share it with their friends and so on. So I know the impact I, or anyone for that matter, can have through Facebook.
Why am I writing this post? I wanted to suggest to anyone using Facebook the same way I do to ask if they are giving their power away or if they are empowering themselves before posting? Does feeding information about “Corporate Greed” or “”Government corruption” help you to take ownership of your life? What if instead you shared the wonderful difference you made with your neighbor or coworker? What if you told us of the involvement you have in your community and the benefits of it? Doesn’t that feel more empowering?
How does it get any better than this?
