I am (human), therefore I think

If you truly “know yourself” (your weaknesses and your strengths), you know all people, for though we disagree, we’re all basically the same. Compassion connects us. Conflict corrupts us.

Your consciousness can be controlled. You can focus your awareness on hope or despair, right or wrong, trust or fear. Shift your consciousness away from what troubles you and toward what inspires you.

Scientists can’t explain or prove human consciousness. Still, the fact you’re reading this shows that it obviously exists. Awareness of your thoughts is not thought. It’s perception!

Consider the thoughts that come into your consciousness. Refute the bad ones; cultivate the good ones. It takes courage to let your thinking and your lifestyle be led by your conscience. Our society greatly needs more people with that kind of courage!

Technology has made life easier and more comfortable, but no device can make your life meaningful. That’s up to you! Too much amusing leaves no time for musing.

If you made it up, it’s not the truth. If it’s not the truth have the courage not to tell it.

Discover and expand
The inner silence
Between thoughts,
For peace resides there.

Make a conscious choice
To cultivate your consciousness
Until it creates conditions
That cause contentment
To come to you.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
