“But Be Ye Transformed by the Renewing of Your Mind”

“but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind

Romans 12:2
American Standard Version

Do you want to lose weight?
Do you want to learn something new?

Do you want to quit smoking? 

Change starts when there is a new idea. 
It all starts in your head.
It all starts with a thought, if you want to do it right.

Transformation originates from your mind. 
Transformation takes time. 
Transformation is not an overnight phenomenon.

What is transformation?
Transformation, when you change your life or change something in your life is the visible manifestation of the power of your thoughts.

“But He That Looketh into the Perfect Law, the Law of Liberty"

“But he that looketh into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and so continueth, being not a hearer that forgetteth but a doer that worketh, this man shall be blessed in his doing.”

James 1: 25
American Standard Version

We know instinctively when we do good work.
When we do something we were born to do.
And that is the perfect law of liberty.

"Unto Every One That Hath Shall Be Given; But from Him That Hath Not, Even That Which He Hath Shall Be Taken away from Him.”

“I say unto you, that unto every one that hath shall be given; but from him that hath not, even that which he hath shall be taken away from him.

Luke 19:26
American Standard Version

Some people might say this is not an especially positive part on the Bible. 
True, it can be interpreted in that way. 

It also can be interpreted in a way that gives hope and a positive outlook on life. 
We can have material things and also immaterial things.
What have we got that we possess and at the same time can multiply it? 

Knowledge, experience, talent, passion, common sense, skills. 

You have them, you can develop and you can use them. 
The more you use them, the more you'll have of them.

“Who Believed Not the Truth”

“that they all might be judged who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

2 Thessalonians 2:12
American Standard Version 

What is the truth anyway? First let's think about what lies are.
Benjamin Franklin wrote:
Half the truth is often a great lie.
How do we know that we know the whole truth? Or just one part of it? 

Our society is basically based upon lies. 
Lies are there when we don't want to hurt someone else's feelings. Lies are there when we want to cut corners, not big ones but we still want to cut them. Lies are there when we want to make ourselves look bigger/better/smarter.  

What is a lie?
Are artificial nails a lie? 

Are padded bras a lie? 
Are cars and houses that are not owned free and clear a lie? 
Are false teeth a lie? 

In the strictest sense of the word, yes, these are all lies.
Yet in our everyday life they are not considered to be lies. 

How do you know when you hear and see the truth? 
First of all, treat eveything, every article, every movie, every picture, every book, even these lines, with respectful suspicion. Everything that someone else has written, devised, directed, created and put in front of you is biased. Because we are all humans. 

It's then up to you to choose your own point of view, to choose your convictions, what you believe in, what bias you prefer. And then act upon it. You'll feel when you are true to yourself, it is an exhilarating feeling.
It is one of the most liberating feelings to make your own choice and live your life accordingly. 

Live your life to be truthful – to yourself.

“And All Things, Whatsoever Ye Shall Ask in Prayer, Believing, Ye Shall Receive”

And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
Matthew 21:22

American Standard Version

Prayer is a way of organizing our thoughts. 
Prayer is a way of expressing gratitude. 
Prayer is a way of uniting with ourselves. 

Prayer is honest when we mean what we say, what we really want deep in our heart. 
Prayer power is power when true belief accompanies your thoughts. 

And it doesn't hurt either if you know what you are asking for. It doesn't hurt to be precise with your words. What you wish for, comes true in one way or another. Make reality as close to the picture you imagined as you can.

There might be detours along the way. With perseverance you'll find the way. 
Prayer, belief, actions and a pinch of go-getter crazy attitude will get you to places you want to go.

If the Master of the House Had Known in What Watch the Thief Was Coming, He Would Have Watched"

"But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what watch the thief was coming, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken through."

Matthew 24:43
American Standard Version 

If you leave your wallet and your heart exposed, you'll sooner or later be forced to deal with the consquences. You won't necessarily like those consquences. The ruthless and the cunning work round the clock.

In business and in life it is wise to protect your assets. Even the Bible says so.

Your assets can be anything that gives you value: your business, your property, objects you own, patents you own, knowledge, anything.
To be positive and to sleep well, protect them well. 

If you know you have done everything in your power to protect your assets, this knowledge gives you confidence. And with this confidence you can go on and conquer newer and newer heights and become wiser and wiser, more and more successful every single day.

"How They Might Destroy Him"

"And the Pharisees went out, and straightway with the Herodians took counsel against him, how they might destroy him."

Mark 3:6
American Standard Version 

There are lots of different kinds of destroyers. 
For instance my cats. Donut Destroyers. Annihilators of Dough. 
Now that mosquito season is just around the corner, mosquitos are also destroyers. They are destroyers of a good night's sleep. 
And the list goes on and on and on. 

Actually destroying something is much much easier than building it up.
That is why there are so many cheerful volunteers for destruction. 

Jesus was a cool guy. He was popular, too. He did a lot of great things.
So the destroyers who were his kinsmen by the way and basically pissed off because they wanted to do those things but couldn't thought that that was high time to destroy the guy. 

And they did. The rest is history.

What do we do against destruction?
Destroy distruction. 
That's it. 
And how do we destroy destruction? 
Doing the opposite. Creativity, work, perseverance, cheekiness, devil-may-care, who-the-f-gives-a-sh, passion, joy, happiness, cheerfulness, positivity, humor. 

And when we just can't do that?
Remember, in Life of Brian, Jesus was singing on the cross:
"Always look on the bright side of life."
