Something to Think About:


A few words about thoughts and prayer from the author of

Think and Grow Rich :

If you are an observing person, you must have noticed that most people
resort to prayer ONLY after everything else has FAILED! Or else they pray
by a ritual of meaningless words. And, because it is a fact that most people who pray, do so ONLY AFTER EVERYTHING ELSE HAS FAILED, they go to prayer with their minds filled with FEAR and DOUBT, which are the emotions the subconscious mind acts upon, and passes on to Infinite Intelligence.

Likewise, that is the emotion which Infinite Intelligence receives, and ACTS UPON.

If you pray for a thing, but have fear as you pray, that you may not receive it, or that your prayer will not be acted upon by Infinite Intelligence, your prayer will have been in vain.

Prayer does, sometimes, result in the realization of that for which one prays. If you have ever had the experience of receiving that for which YOU prayed, go back in your memory, and recall your actual STATE OF MIND, while you were praying, and you will know, for sure, that the theory here described is more than a theory.

Take some time to think on these words. If you pray for health or wealth or anything else, pay attention to your emotions that reside within as you pray. This information does not point toward a specific religion or any religion at all. Prayer is a vehicle bringing your thoughts to your Higher Power or your God. Please take some time to leave a comment letting us know how this information has touched your life.

Question of the Month: Other than a cure, as a seizure survivor, caregiver, or professional what would you say is needed in the seizure disorders community? Please submit your answer in the comments section at the end of this newsletter…

The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts; therefore guard accordingly.Marcus Aurelius
