A THOUGHT AND A “DOING”…
The saying, “It takes two to tango,” can be taken in different ways. Literally, to dance the tango requires two people. While one dancer may perform a tap dance, clog, or make any kind of body gyrations to music, it demands two people to partner and dance to the sensuous beat of the tango. But the saying also indicates it takes at least one other person, besides oneself, to make a plan or a dream come true.
Science of Mind is considered a “New Thought” religious philosophy, yet it readily admits it takes more than just one thought to bring change to new ways of living. It takes a focus on a specific change of circumstances followed up with a relevant action to actualize the desired result. And it is that action that involves other people. This is how a new habit for establishing positive outcomes of an aim, a goal is accomplished: thoughts plus action.
Perhaps you’re ready for retirement and looking forward to fulfilling a long-awaited dream. Or maybe a lucrative job is what you’re looking for now. The formula remains the same in either case. Get clear what it is you see yourself being and then start acting your way to fulfillment. Whatever it is, find out what the job, the project requires and take action on meeting those requirements. Some jobs train you, some require experience. If, for instance, you see yourself opening a yarn shop, make sure you have a solid list of required fundamentals and start working your way through them. Be willing to learn from those who have knowledge to share.
This includes daily accepting and giving thanks to the Power within you that always believes in you and knows there is something greater waiting for you to grow into. It is ready to guide you. Are you ready to trust? Start acting as though you believed it. That belief will deepen leading you forward into meaningful accomplishment. I’ve found it helpful to keep myself on target to repeat, “Every image of fear or failure is erased from my mind; every sense of confusion leaves. I reflect the Divine into everything that I do, say, and think.”
