One of my favorite quotes by Dr. Wayne Dyer goes like this: Change the way you look at things, and the things you look at will change. Some might wonder what this actually means.. and well, simply stated it means exactly what it implies. Our thoughts are beyond powerful. They literally have the power to alter physical reality, to heal, to make matters better or worse and to manifest on the smallest or largest of scales. This is all brought to light by quantum physics which shows us that at the tiniest subatomic level, the actual act of observing a particle changes the particle. The way we observe these infinitely small building blocks of life is a determining factor in what they ultimately become.
Einstein once said, “The most fundamental decision that you have to make in your life is this: do you live in a friendly or a hostile Universe?” Do you live in a Universe filled with hatred, hostility, people that are mean and angry? Is this what you see? Because if this is what you believe and this is what you see, this is what you will create for your life.
I think we know this on a deeper level – because it’s in our core. It’s why we choose to find the good in things, why we make an effort to move beyond a bad experience and get on with our lives, and why we hold sayings like “everything happens for a reason” near and dear. Deep down we know that if we change the way we look at things it makes for a better experience.
Now take this saying on conscious level and use it intently. Change the way you look at your body, at your life, at your weaknesses, at your friendships, the world.
Change the way you look at things, and the things you look at will change.
