As a Man Thinketh AND Speaketh…
Boy, when I get inspired, I REALLY get inspired! People who know me are well aware of how fond I am of the spirituality behind the whole “As a man thinketh” idea. I absolutely love it!
Well, I came across a wonderful blog entry today (thanks to my friend David S. on Facebook in our “Positive Imperative” group). The article he brought to my attention was about “neuroplasticity” and our brain’s ability to create new pathways when others have been damaged. The article goes on to discuss the importance of making darned sure that our words are consistently positive.
It takes James Allen’s famous work “As a Man Thinketh” to a different level in light of more recent scientific discoveries than were likely known in Mr. Allen’s time. Of course, most of us have heard “Our thoughts become our words…our words become our actions…” etc.
In an article I just posted here at the site, I have given you the link to the article that David pointed out, and also offered a thought on how to encourage consistent practice in what the author (Barrie Davenport) recommends.
The topic is an important one, and I hope my readers will take it to heart. Please continue on to the page “As a Man Thinketh…With a Twist – the Power of the Spoken Word.” We all need to be vigilant not only about the thoughts we think, but what we say out loud.
