The subconscious mind will not remain idle! If you fail to plant DESIRES in your subconscious mind, it will feed upon the thoughts which reach it as the result of your neglect. We have already explained that thought impulses, both negative and positive are reaching the subconscious mind continuously, from the four sources which were mentioned in the chapter on Sex Transmutation.

 

I couldn’t help but think of a book I have read a few times in the past several years “As a Man Thinketh” by James Allen. It’s a short book, which works great for those who aren’t enthusiastic readers and struggle with books. It was perfect for me at the time. Now I’m into larger books. It was suggested reading by Tony Robbins and Les Brown, so I thought it should be something I should check out.

 

He talks about how our mind is a Garden, that it’s going to grow whether we take care of it or not. It takes work to make a garden prosper, but if we don’t take care of it, it will flourish with weeds and unwanted things.

 

I’ve personally found that a great destroyer to negative thoughts is forgiveness. The emotions of fear, jealousy, hatred, revenge, greed, superstition, and anger, forgiveness takes out just about all of those. Being that forgiveness is rooted in love; which love definitely takes out greed.

 

Dr. Brené Brown has a video that talks about empathy, and as I’ve had some rough life experiences, I’ve learned that empathy is a great approach in dealing with those things. Empathy really is huge.

 

Look at Matthew 5:7 “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.” – showing mercy is an expression of empathy, as empathy is understanding the other person. Matthew 5:9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.” You have to exhibit empathy to be a peacemaker. Empathy and forgiveness (especially being empathic and forgiving to yourself) is how Matthew 6:14) becomes fulfilled (For if you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.)

 

Since our mind is always working, our subconscious garden is always growing, I’m excited about growing in desire, faith, love, sex (transmutation), enthusiasm, and hope.

 

Thanks for this group, Y’all stay awesome (I’m probably the only person in the Philippines who says y’all)
