    Our thoughts are powerful forces in the creation of our experience of life. You may be able to recall a time when frustration that was based on a misunderstanding completely evaporated when your understanding changed. This is because our interpretation defines our experience, and it can change in an instant. Our only true reality is the present moment, so rather than merely accepting that life is happening to us, we can harness the power of our thoughts to actively create a positive reality. For example, we can choose to appreciate beauty around us rather than focusing on traffic or look for admirable qualities in the people we deal with rather than focusing on the negative. By choosing how to interpret and define each moment with your thoughts, you truly create your reality.

    Throughout the day, we can monitor our thoughts to catch ourselves in the middle of investing our energy elsewhere—such as into belief in limitations—and instead pull our focus back to the infinite possibilities of the present. Taking a deep breath will help us center our thoughts on being in our bodies right now. Regular meditation allows us to gain mastery over our minds so that we can still our thoughts to focus on the pureness of being. If we mentally dwell on the past or the future, we may miss the experience of living in the present moment. Setting and visualizing goals is wonderful, but we can bring our thoughts into our current experience by taking steps to create them now.

    Our minds are powerful tools that we can harness to create our reality. Through them we move the unformed energy of the universe into form, which gives us direction for our words and actions. Each thought is like a stone dropped into a lake, sending ripples out into our world to affect all they touch. We can choose our focus and how we invest our energy, which gives us the power to design our lives to be whatever we choose in each and every moment.

    I bet every person that was at the funeral for Bobbi Gleason knows it now. Bobbi was an icredible person and I am sorry to say I didn't know him, he was born after I moved to VA. I do keep in touch with my aunt, his grandmother. My heart broke for all then today.

    The Preist did a excellent job in making it a positive that Bobbie is there looking down on us. He is in gods hands. Instead of how much the family had lost.

    The church was packed out to the doors and not a dry eye in the house. A young, talented, intelliegent,loving person was laid to rest today. He did not get his tomorrow, but the message I came away with was he lived everyday to the best. And I am going to do my best to do the same. Carla
