Listen to episode 544 of the Inspirational Living Podcast: The Nature & Power of the Mind. Edited and adapted from Out From the Heart by James Allen.
Inspirational Podcast Excerpt: Your life proceeds from your heart and mind. You have compounded that mind by your own thoughts and deeds. It is within your power to refashion that mind by your choice of thought. And in this manner, you can transform your life.
To begin, remember that every established mental condition is an acquired habit, and it has become so by continuous repetition of thought. Despondency and cheerfulness, anger and calmness, covetousness and generosity — indeed, all states of mind — are habits built up by choice, until they have become automatic. A thought constantly repeated, at last becomes a fixed habit of mind, and from such habits proceeds one’s life.
