“Everything we need at this moment is already available to us in abundance, exceedingly, abundantly above all that we can ask or think.”—Michele Longo O’Donnell

Last Friday, the federal government set standards to bring uniformity to the $4 billion market for gluten-free foods.

It seems everybody and their mother is giving up gluten…..or sugar….or dairy…..or meat or….well, the list goes on.

I find it ironic that we exert such Herculean efforts to give up particular foods, but make little effort to give up negative thoughts that, in the end, have more of a deleterious effect than gluten ever could.

Our thoughts and what we focus upon provide the structure for our lives, our day-to-day experiences and nothing could be more important than feasting on thoughts of abundance, tolerance, love, joy and well-being.

I have no idea yet what I will eat today (although hummus will likely be involved since I’m meeting friends for Mediterranean food tonight), but I do know I’ll forgo any thought that doesn’t provide the nourishment of the world’s unlimited beneficence.

  1. Completely agree. The Jenny Craig Principle in E-Squared works so well because by eating consciously, we’re allowing food to nourish our bodies the way it’s intended to. I’m doing a negative-thought master cleanse…

  2. I am going to make myself consciously aware of all positive thoughts all the time.. Sometimes I tend to focus on the negative because of having to go through chemo saying stuff like ” I hate that I hate that I have to go through this” instead my new manta will be …” I love where this is taking me” this will be my own experiment to see with this new mantra how much better my next treatment goes!

  3. Pam,

    I absolutely LOVE had you said it: “I find it ironic that we exert such Herculean efforts to give up particular foods, but make little effort to give up negative thoughts that, in the end, have more of a deleterious effect than gluten ever could.”

    Just about perfect!

  4. I like the part in A Course in Miracles where it says that light merely shows you the darkness is not there.
