FRESH AND REMADE

It may seem strange to think of positive ideas as forces that can “fall” upon a person, but sometimes it does seem to happen, a thought suddenly swooping down on me like sunshine that sweeps everything else away. It can create a newness and impressiveness in my life, like a letting go of all that’s old while something fresh flows in. I’m one person one second, and then a thoroughly surprising idea sweeps into my life, and suddenly I’m someone new, someone I’ve never met. It feels like a mental flood has flowed through me, leaving something lighthearted and bright when it’s gone. For instance, occasionally this cheering idea drops down on me: thoughts are more powerful than things. It’s a simple concept, one that has occasionally restarted my life, this idea that a strongly held hopeful thought can control and conquer any situation, no matter how menacing it might seem. Each time I understand, once again, that the positive thoughts inside me can speak with infinitely more force than any troublesome circumstance outside me, I feel startlingly free, totally fresh and remade. I feel reborn as a force, not of blood and bones, but of soul and spirit, all because of a single rousing thought from somewhere above and beyond.
