The secret to happiness lies with the power of the mind. We can determine our mental weather forecast, and how our day, week, year and entire life turns out by how we direct the power of mind. It is what we think about that enables us to be on an upward spiral mentally and emotionally or on the descent.

We hear a lot about the power of positive thought, and rightly so. As Thomas Jefferson implies, you can control what you focus your mind upon. You can bring back good feelings and memories from the past to enliven your existence in this very moment. This quote also implies that we can create positive thoughts right now that carry us powerfully through the day, no matter what life may throw at us.

This is the key point; namely, that the locus of control is within you. No mater what may happen, it is how you think about it and the beliefs you bring to bear that determine the meaning you give to the event. This is the unique power of the mind; it can give happy or sad meaning to the exact same event, depending upon how it is disposed to function. That disposition is down to the person in control of that mind!

Thus, through thinking positive thoughts  in an optimal fashion, you keep your mental life healthy. It is ultimately from the mental and from the correct use of the power of the mind that physical and spiritual health and blessings flow.
