Daily Dose for the Soul

Your family relationships are in your mind

When you close your eyes, your family disappears. Where did they go? Nowhere, but doing this exercise helps your recognise that your relatives exist as thoughts in your mind. And recall that God is the mind with which you’re thinking. Are you using your mind to process your relatives in harmony with intention? Or have you abandoned or separated yourself in your mind by viewing your family in ways contrary to the universal Source of intention? These people who are related to you are all ideas in your mind. Whatever power they have, you’ve given to them. What you feel is wrong or missing in these relationships is an indication that something is amiss within you, because broadly speaking, anything you see in anyone else is a reflection of some aspect of you, otherwise you wouldn’t be bothered by it, because you wouldn’t notice it in the first place.

In order to change the nature of family relationships, you’ll have to change your mind about them and do a somersault into the inconceivable. And what is the inconceivable? It’s the idea that you are the source of the anguish in your relationships, rather than the individual whom you’ve pegged as the most outrageous, the most despicable, or the most infuriating.

    Yes indeed, so true. We are but a mirror and reflection of what we see and perceive.

      I agree Miriam. People consider their problems to come from outside conditions. They try in vain to change the world surrounding them in hope things will improve. This seldom works because their thoughts are out of alignment. It was the French-born novelist Anais Nin who said: “You do not see the world as it is. You see it as you are.”
