“If a great change is to be made in human affairs, the minds of
men (and women) will be fitted to it; the general opinions and feelings
will be drawn that way. Every fear and hope will be forwarded to it; and
they who persist in opposing this mighty current will appear to resist the
decree of Providence itself, than the mere designs of men. They will not
be so much resolute and firm as perverse and obstinate.” –Edmund Burke
Day in and day out, this constant pounding of negative thoughts,
ideas and conditioning were forced into me through my daily interactions
with people from all walks of life. However, some of these actions were
well intended. They simply did not want me to get hurt, by expecting
more than they thought I deserved or was entitled. They felt (and I too
sometimes,) that it is far better to be safe than to be sorry or disappointed
in future actions. Whatever thoughts you’re thinking will attract to you
similar thoughts in nature. If you think success thoughts, affirm them,
and cling to them although you’re in an apparent defeating situation, you
will attract to you, powerful inspiring thoughts that can lift you over your
difficult situations to your blessings.
The Law of Attraction says, “Unto him that hath shall be given,
and from him that hath not, shall be taken away even that which he hath.”
Think success thoughts and thousands of invisible forces will flock to
your aid. Think failure, and an innumerable number of forces will help
make it complete. To the average person a thought is an airy insignificance—a mere flash of consciousness- it comes, it goes, and there it ends.
But the Law of Attraction (mental change) says, look around and all that
you see is the result of thought. (Everything exists in the unseen before it
is manifested in the seen.)
I’m reminded of a story, I heard sometime ago of an Indian brave
that found the egg of an eagle. Not being able to reach the nest of an
eagle, he decided to put it in the nest of a prairie chicken. The hen sat on
this egg alone with her eggs, not knowing or caring anything of the change,
until all of the eggs hatched. All his life, thinking he was a prairie chicken,
the eagle did just what all the other prairie chickens did; he scratched in
the dirt for insects and seeds for food; he clucked and cackled; he flew in
brief thrashing motions of his feathers, no more than a few feet above the
ground and not very far at a time. After all, that’s how prairie chickens
are supposed to fly. Years passed and the eagle grew very old. One day
he looked up and saw a magnificent bird soaring in the sky. “Why! What

a beautiful bird, what is it?” He asked one of the older prairie chickens.
“Oh, that’s an eagle, the chief of the birds,” was the reply, “but, don’t you
give it a second thought; you can never be like him.” So the eagle never
gave it another thought and died convinced he was a prairie chicken. How
sad, born to soar into the heavens, made to be the chief among the birds—
to settle for being just a prairie chicken, grubbing worms, scratching around
in the dirt. In this day and time it’s easy to live like a prairie chicken. It’s
okay because everybody else is doing it. I’m better off than he or she is;
prairie chicken lifestyle, grubbing worms, scratching in the dirt. Flashing
and fluttering about trying to make meaning out of my frustrations, when
I know and I can see this bird flying above me and yelling, you can do it,
you can do it, you can make it happen, when all around me - my friends,
my relatives, and my associates are all saying don’t even bother, you’re
just a prairie chicken. But I say unto you, mental changes can shift no’s to
yes’s and denials to affirmations. The mind always acts- and it acts on our
most predominant thoughts.
Have you noticed, the longer you choose to think about something
that you should be doing, the harder it is to do it? The longer you put off
doing something that you should do, the more difficult it becomes to start.
We can avoid much frustration and unhappiness if we’ll just choose to
start doing what we know that we should do.

I heard somewhere that we’re like ants in a human anthill. Just
think about that each ant has a job to do and gives it his best. What would
our communities reflect if each was giving it our best without a supervisor telling you what and how to do it?
“A man only begins to be a man when he ceases to search for the
hidden justice which regulates his life. And as he adapts his mind to that
regulation factor, he ceases to accuse others as the cause of his conditions, and builds himself up in strong and noble thoughts; ceases to kick
against circumstances, but begins to use them as aids to his more rapid
progress and as a means of discovering the hidden powers and possibilities within himself.” -James Allen
Mr. Allen was right. Thoughts are things and powerful things at
that. When mixed with a definite purpose, persistence and a burning
desire for its translations into the rewards of its objectives. The things
that we think of most of the time become the things of reality. Remember,
when circumstances bring disillusions, depression or discouragement
knocking at your mental door; simply say these words, I expect something extraordinary to happen to me today. I expect it, I accept it, and I
give thanks for it (keep repeating it.) The law still works and you can’t
stop it from working! It will bring to you according to your most dominant desires.
Both of our Presidential candidates are speaking of making
changes. As we reach the final days of this campaign, it is my fondest
wish that something special- the right to choose to be self inspired, to
hold ourselves accountable, to choose to be part of the solution rather
than part of the problem, the right to choose, to choose, to choose- has
occurred in each of our lives. I sincerely hope that we have been helped
in a number of positive ways to understand the value of finishing what
you start and doing what we say. The way we approach our choices and
our daily expectations should now be different. There is a magnificent
bird soaring above; I can see it and I can hear it. Now is the time for
choice. The choices we make determine the changes we get. “Sometimes we become enthusiastically engaged in building a beautiful bridge
to the future, while other times we seem preoccupied with holding on to
potholes from the past.” As long as we live, we’ll have to make choices.
The greatest power that we have is the power to choose. Do I stay with the
prairie chickens or fly with the eagles? What ever your choice “Don’t get
upset just VOTE,” and vote early.
