A while ago I saw the amazing movie Bohemian Rhapsody again. During this movie the father of Freddy Mercury talks about “good thoughts, good words, good deeds.” A beautiful expression of being someone who is truly helpful.
The origins of these words are the Zoroaster teachings related to Zarathustra. “Purity is for man, next to life, the greatest good that purity is procured by the law of Mazda to him who cleanses his own self with Good Thoughts, Words, and Deeds.” Read more.
As part of this blog, I want to offer a perspective on what to do when the great reset has been stopped. How do we address what is wrong first and then shape our world into a better one for everyone? Good deeds and good words are important here, but also good thoughts.
Why are good deeds and good words not enough? Are our thoughts not simply a private matter? Yes, and no. Of course everyone can decide which thoughts to value and has the freedom to do so. On the other hand, our thoughts have a manifesting effect, either positive or negative.
In the past, only mystics or those interested in esoteric teachings would talk about the manifesting power of thoughts. And people either believed them or didn’t believe them. That has changed, because science has given us proof thoughts affect everything.
Many experiments have been done related to the manifesting power of thoughts. One of the most famous researchers was Masaru Emoto, who did extensive research on water, and the influence of the consciousness surrounding the water.
“By exposing water to a particular word or piece of music, freezing it, and photographing the ice crystals formed, Dr. Emoto has shown that from beautiful words and music, come beautiful crystals, and from mean-spirited, negative words, come malformed and misshapen crystals.”
It is one thing to believe in the manifesting power of thoughts; it is quite another thing to see this proven is such a straightforward way. Our thoughts influence everything around us. And if we want to have a better world, we will have to think better thoughts. Improved spiritual consciousness.
Maybe it is important for you to hear this. It certainly is important for me to hear this. While doing research for my blog I come across a lot of horrible facts, the darkest side of human nature, so to speak. I have to digest this, but cannot stay there, in this negativity.
I have to look at the positive side of things, the initiatives which bring hope, the constructive things that are being done by those who also want to be part of the solution. Then I can work with happy thoughts while I write and act. Good thoughts, good words, good deeds.
The great reset needs to be stopped, and turned into something better, which I prefer to call “the gentle restart.” Let this gentle restart be brought forth by our good deeds, our good words, and our good thoughts. Together we can make this happen. Thank you.
