“We should become more familiar with good than with evil, and guard against false beliefs as watchfully as we bar our doors against the approach of thieves and murderers.” (Science and Health, page 234)
You would not willingly allow a shady individual to enter into your home and have full run of your house and all that is in it. Just so, we should be as alert about what thoughts we allow into our mental home and how comfortable we make them there. Our consciousness can and should be filled with welcoming ideas, those that bring beauty and light to our sweet minds.
Are we preoccupied with fear, with lack, with regrets, with self-justification, blame, and anger? Are we ruminating when we could be rejoicing? These mesmerizing ideas are murdering our peace and productivity, and robbing us of a really good time! Don’t allow those sneaky devils to dirty up your good, clean, house–your consciousness that was built to express and to receive love!
A right and good thought can accomplish miracles in moments. An unproductive thought can torture us for years if we let it. Watch that those bad ideas don’t take over, don’t become legitimate pieces of furniture in your home. And, it’s never too late to clear them out. The thought that’s been battered to pieces by our constant attention is even riper for a trip to the garbage, so toss it and celebrate with a new outlook. Leave room for fresh ideas, for simple goodness. These lovely thoughts will not only uplift you, they will protect and heal you and bring joy not only to your mind, but to your life and the lives of those around you.
