Honoring Your “I Am”

According to James Allen, “a man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts”. Buddha said that the tongue is like a knife that kills without drawing blood. This gives a powerful visual to how we have the ability to cut ourselves (or others) down. The law of attraction says that like attracts like. Positive words or thoughts (energy) attracts the same, as does negative words or thoughts. In addition to saying that the power of life and death are in the tongue, God’s word (the bible) says to love your neighbor as you do yourself. So, being made in God’s image, we love ourselves based on God’s abiding love for us, and our love for Him, and that branches out to others. So how can we honor Gods commandment if we allow our “I Am” to be negative? If we focus thoughts and words on negative things, our life becomes negative. While we can’t control what happens in life we have full control over how we deal with it. So according to James Allen, Buddha, the Law of Attraction and God, their thoughts, beliefs and commands direct us to honor our “I Am”. Our “I Am” should be strong, positive and self affirming. Our “I Am” becomes our truth…by design or by default…
I am smart, funny, silly, kind, awkward, loved…a work in progress…I Am Enough. What is your I Am?
