“…set your minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth.” (Colossians 3: 2)
Keep your thoughts on high. Let the things of heaven linger with you and don’t be quick to come back down to earth. Remain faithful to the good, the healing, the holy, the true.
Material things and circumstances, personalities, regrets of the past and worries for the future, all constitute those earthly things that would mesmerize our thinking and paralyze our lives. An undue focus on the body and what it is doing or not doing will distract us unnecessarily from the peace and well-being that is rightfully ours.
Think of the higher things. Think of God, good, of Life that is eternal and loving and true, and stay with those things. When a lovely idea that feels safe and comforting and healing enters your thought; when gratitude and love and patience and gentleness have their moment, don’t be so quick to forget them, to replace them with the limiting lies of mortal life.
Your thought is a natural receiver of God’s ideas. Make room for them and let them settle in for a while. Let those right ideas establish themselves and be a more natural way of thinking, bringing that heavenly sense of well-being to earth, and revealing the Truth of Life— the one that isn’t stuck on the ground, but always ready to be free and to fly!
