Your mind is one powerful manifestation tool. I wonder, more often than is healthy, 'why me?'--and the answer? The subconscious, yet fervent praying that's going on in the echochamber of my skull on a moment-to-moment basis. I've got to reign in those worshippers singing the praises of pessimism, of negativity, give them their eviction notice and hope to attract a new flock--one who sings of joy and hope, color and abundance.
These voices, tempting as they are, familiar as they are, don't have to own us. Their beliefs don't have to be ours. We're caretakers of this cathedral, and we've a right to let it be a place of beauty, of song, of solace, and of cheer.
