The Power Of the MInd

The Power Of the MInd


At the time I had a customized van which was in excellent condition. I drove into the little town mulling through my mind my financial condition. I determined I had all the bases covered as long as nothing major come down the pike. The thought suddenly came into my head I only had one method of transportation, my van, and if anything happened to it, I would have a problem.

As I glanced down at the dashboard, the oil light suddenly came on, fear gripped me. I then realized I was creating this event and began thinking about how good a condition the van was in and I wasn’t going to have any problems with it.

As quickly as the light came on, it went off and stayed off. The van ran for many thousands of miles after that with no mechanical problems whatsoever.

A good lesson on how powerful the mind is, and how we do create our reality. There are times we do need to attend to the “real” life, but many times it is a figment of our imagination.
