“Whatever you can do or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.”
~ Wolfgang von Goethe ~
“Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven”.
~ Matthew 18:3 ~
There has always been the “high-minded” among us; i.e., certain individuals who aspire for things that are beyond their present circumstances. These ordinary people, while trusting in life, never compared themselves to anyone else. They simply believed they deserved the best in all things. Somehow these optimists moved through challenges with an attitude that transcended many of the seeming limitations they faced.
The unillumined would say these people are “lucky” or believe they received some Providential favor. However, the illumined recognize the immutable mental law of Cause and Effect and realizes the inevitability that these ordinary people would, of course, experience the likeness of their expectations.
“Don’t underestimate the power of a mind that is made up.”
~ Miya Yamanouchi ~
The good news is, the laws of nature are never respecters of person but work the same for everyone. The outcome simply depends upon one’s mental position, because the law itself is automatic. It is forever in the mode of responding by corresponding with the impressions it receives. In other words, it works the same for the one who knows nothing about The Law, the same as it does for the one who knows all about It.

We are all ordinary people with mindsets operating at various frequencies at different times. What I have noticed about myself and others is, it usually depends on what is going on with us at any given time. While operating at the optimum of high-mindedness there is an expectancy of peace, harmony, love, beauty, wisdom, and joy to prevail in all circumstances.
There may be other times when mediocracy is the mindset that vibrates with a frequency like the man without God that Howard Thurman describes as, “. . . a victim of the currents of life that carry him where they will with a bland unmindfulness of purposes and ends which belong to him as a living, thinking, feeling creature.”
Finally, there’s a low vibration operating when one’s habitual mindset is focused on “ain’t it awful.”
“Whatever your mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” – ~ Napoleon Hill ~
Good News Flash! We each have the power to change our thinking and therefore change our lives. However, you cannot fool Mother Nature by just saying new words; we must begin to actually sense, feel, believe, think, and act differently. We must become like a little child who imagines and daydreams about their world.

We raise the vibration of our thought patterns and position ourselves in that kingdom of harmony within us by engaging in regular spiritual practices. Daily meditation, life visioning, and spiritual mind treatment (affirmative prayer) are wonderful companions that support us while we walk the path of high-mindedness.
“I behold the expanse of the universe and feel, sense, and know that the same ever-expanding Life Force that created the universe also exists within me.”
