The Tenth Principle:
Wisdom Is Avoiding All Thoughts Which Weaken You
Every single thought you have can be assessed in terms of whether it strengthens or weakens you.
Dr. Dyer talks about a simple muscle test where you hold your arm out to the side and think a thought. Have someone else put pressure on your arm. If you think a thought that is true your arm will remain strong. However, if you think a thought that is false your arm will become weak. He also talks about David Hawkins’ book, Power vs.Force and explains that “every thought computes to either weaken or strengthen you.
Authentic wisdom is the ability to monitor yourself at all times to determine your relative state of weakness or strength, and to shift out of those thoughts that weaken you.
Power urges you to live and perform at your own highest level, and it is compassionate.
Thoughts of attack and force actually weaken you . . . In an athletic event, your thoughts are on overpowering your opponent, being better than another, and playing and winning at any cost. The entire muscular structure of your body is actually weakened . . . if in the midst of an athletic event you can keep your thoughts on performing at your highest capacity, on using your inner strength to muster the energy to be as efficient as it’s possible for you to be, and to have great respect for your God-given abilities, you will actually be empowering yourself.
The thought that makes most people the weakest is shame . . . The importance of forgiving yourself cannot be stated strongly enough . . . No amount of guilt will ever undo what’s been done. If your past behavior mobilizes you to learn from your mistakes, this is not guilt; it’s learning from the past. But to wallow in the present moment over your so-called errors is guilt, and it can only take place now. . . . Guilt is released through the empowering thought of love and respect for yourself. You empower yourself with love and respect, letting go of standards of perfection and refusing to use up the precious currency of your life, the now, with thoughts that only continue to frustrate and weaken you.
Wayne Dyer – Power of Intention:
You have the choice each day to wake up and say, ‘Good morning, God’ or ‘Good God; Morning!’ It’s always a choice . . . to me it’s an insult to this wondrous universe filled with a hundred million miracles to ever allow myself to think thoughts of boredom or apathy . . . When you’re afraid, you’ve moved away from love . . . Remember . . . Every single thought you have can be assessed in terms of whether it strengthens or weakens you.
The most empowering thoughts you can have are those of peace, joy, love, and acceptance . . . these thoughts stem from willingness to allow the world to be as it is . . . All of this is nothing more than a conscious decision on your part to be in charge of your thinking.
Be aware at any given moment in your life that you always have a choice about the thoughts you allow in your mind. No one else can put a thought there. Regardless of the circumstances you find yourself in, there is your choice.
Choose to replace weakening thoughts with thoughts of a higher spiritual frequency . . . Your mind is yours to control. You are the creator and selector of your thoughts. You can change them at will. It is your God-given inheritance, your corner of freedom that no one can take away. No one can have control of your thoughts without your consent. So choose to avoid thoughts that weaken you, and you will know true wisdom. It is your choice!
“Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.“
~ Mahatma Gandhi
