"We are formed and molded by our thoughts.
Those whose minds are shaped by selfless thoughts give joy when they speak or act.
Joy follows them like a shadow that never leaves them. "
Every moment you find yourself focusing on something. Moment to moment something is getting your attention, a thought, an object, a memory, a reaction, some personal narrative. And every time something gets your attention, it is empowered into more visibility – it becomes more vivid and elaborate, more detailed and involved. It's as if your attention to something makes that something solid and tangible to your experience.
Notice how this is at play for you right now – notice the power of your attention and what begins to happen to the things you are focusing on as you are focusing on them. If you pay attention to the way your attention is taken up by the moment to moment stirrings of your being and your world, you will notice just how powerful your attention really is.
Reality is whatever your attention has wrapped itself around. You get what you focus on. You get back the very stream of information you put your attention on. Put your attention on the blessings of your world, and those blessings expand. Put your attention on the immense power you've always had, and you demonstrate to yourself how this immense power has always been within you. Put your attention on the things going "wrong" in your environment or world at large, and your reality suddenly becomes heavy and difficult to navigate through. Your attention is the very substance that acts to bridge you into realities of all types.
The Field in which you have your reality is vast with innumerable frequency-waves for you to tune into and becoming resonant with, harmonized with, aligned with. The reality sectors you can access are many. The versions of moments you can access are many. When you are in joy, you align yourself with joy-filled flows of information that you then translate into joyful moments, joyful days, and a joyful life. When you are in resistance, you align yourself to more resistance inspiring information in your day to day experience. It always comes back to you and what types of information (thoughts, conversations, emotions, memories and so on) you are extending your attention toward.
The upside to the power of your focus and attention, is that you have the ability to direct it. You have the ability to choose what you focus on. You have the ability to determine how long a thought is going to entertain you. You have the ability to determine what’s going to captivate you in any given moment, what story, what relationship, what possibility. You have the ability to decide, unequivocally, what you will and will not give the empowering power of your attention and focus. You choose the conversations you participate in. You choose the information you allow yourself to be present to, to be an audience for. You choose and decide what will gain energy and power in your life by how much attention you give to it.
This isn't to say that you start ignoring or avoiding the perceived undesirable circumstances and conditions of your life. This isn't to say you bury your head in the sand. When you are avoiding something, you are still paying attention to it. Attention has many sides. There is direct attention, where you become immersed in and entangled with the object before you (whether thought objects or other), and there is inverted or indirect attention, wherein you maintain your attentiveness to some pattern indirectly by avoiding it, suppressing it, resisting it and so on.
So what are you empowering right now? Pay attention. Bring your conscious awareness around where your attention is directly or indirectly focused. Then make a conscious choice about how what you're being attentive to is serving you and whether or not you want to continue to empower this pattern, object, narrative or state. One of the best ways to direct your attention, and so your creative power, is to pay attention to your attention.
