What’s in your mind?


“It is our mind, and that alone, that imprisons us
or sets us free.” – Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

I like this quote because I think it is true.  I believe that sometimes our mind controls us and we must learn to train ourselves to control our mind.  What we believe, many times comes to fruition ~ when we declare we can or can’t do something, it sets in motion either limitations or a limitlessness to what we can accomplish.  Haven’t you ever heard the expression that “it’s all in your head?”

So today, watch what you are thinking.  Is your mind running you or are you the boss of your mind?  Are you allowing your mind to say you can’t do something or are you training your mind with the power of positive thinking to know that you can do something?  It’s your choice!

Set yourself free!

Shine On!

  1. The power of positive thinking is limitless! You’re right Yvonne, and we must try to trenscend the
    boundaries of self-Imposed limitations. Working with students having learning difficulties and recurrent feeling of failure, I know it is absolutely true. “I can’t do that”, “I won’t succeed”… yes “It is our mind, and that alone, that imprisons us or sets us free.” – Merci à toi pour ce généreux rappel 🙂 xxoo

  2. This is so true. Believing there’s a way to make something possible is not naive idealism or ignorance. It’s just that the road to fruition is often long and obscured. But in saying “yes I can” you mentally fire yourself to take that long road. Then, when it’s all over, you come out a better person with a story to tell. Life is about the journey.

  3. Yvonne, I have come to realize our thoughts become ingrained patterns that we don’t even know we have, until we catch them. And then when we catch them, they are like slippery eels. It takes a lot of perseverence (lesson from my bees today) and continual application of NEW THOUGHT to overcome the old ones. Not easy, yet it can be done. Thank you SO much for this post!!! Love, Amy
