Energy Follows Attention

I was caught up in the blahs of winter's long nights and gloomy days, snow and ice, grief and uncertainty. Follow along and I'll tell you why I put them in past tense.

Sorting files I came across "The Golden Key," a five-page booklet by Emmet Fox (1886-1951), New Thought leader and writer. It is available at I made a cup of mint and green leaf tea and sat down to read. My poem inspires sharing what I learned.

The wisdom given
at the lofty peak
included the instructions,
'It's not yours to keep.'

Emmet Fox said, "Stop thinking about the difficulty, whatever it is, and think about God instead."
Practice The Attitude of Gratitude.
Mother Theresa said she would not demonstrate against war, but she would march for peace. She understood energy follows attention.
I was reminded, yet again, to get out of my own way. Putting attention only on God allows Him to go to work resolving my problems. At bedtime I surrendered my boat load of troubles and fell asleep praising Him..
I awoke this morning at peace.
Whether you believe in a Higher Power or not, it works. Go ahead test it, and let us know what happens.
