The Power of Thought
Urbanology November 6 2008

Thought is the mother of change. Every change humans have made in the material world has started with a thought. When you look around everything you can see and some you can’t see started with a thought in the head of a person. According to Charles F. Haanel in his book the Master Key System “the individual may act on the Universal and the result of this action and interaction is cause and effect, thought, is the cause, and the experience with which you meet in life are the effect.”

It is believed by many including myself that thought is a spiritual
Activity endowed with creative power. Fear and doubt often stands in the way of the creative use of thought to manifest desired effects in our lives and the world. A creative thought which is a spiritual act can change ones environment. To do so one most have faith in ones ability to change that in which a society’s collective conscience may consider being the truth.

Charles Haanel puts it this way “we know that thought is building for us the think we think of and actually bring it nearer, yet we find it difficult to banish fear, anxiety or discouragement, all of which are powerful thought forces, and will continually send the things we desire further away. Our thoughts can be our worse enemy, if not monitored.

When Jackie Roberson started to think he could become the first African American in the white only professional baseball league the collective conscience of many in America did not believed that it would ever happen for a host of reasons. When Mohandas Gandhi developed the thought that he could lead India to independence by using non-violent political resistance the collective thought of his society did not support his vision. Gandhi’s faith in his thoughts changed his environment and became an inspiration to many others including Dr. Martin Luther King and President Obama.

I am sure when Barack Obama first got the thought that he could create a change in the collective thought in America most did not believe that the collective thought of America could support the concept that one Black man could inspire a nation and the world.
You have the power to have what ever focus your mind on, but it takes faith in ones abilities to manifest ones thoughts into reality. We all have the ability but without understanding we have this ability we all to often misuse this ability.
