W.O.W.(Word of the Week): CREATE
Hi! Barbara Cookson here with the Happy Healthy Being Blog Word of the Week. This week’s word is CREATE. Well, I’ve been re-reading one of my all time favorite books, “Creative Mind” by Ernest Holmes.
I was drawn to this book years ago in a Barnes and Noble when I was sipping on a Starbucks and waiting for a book to find me. and they always do. I was in the “Self Help” section where I always seem to end up, (after the alternative medicine and the cookbooks). I bought the book because I read on the back cover that Ernest Holmes was born on a farm in Lincoln, Maine in 1887. He was just a little older than my grandfather. It kind of fascinated me that a Maine native who wrote a book that long ago was still on the shelves today. Creative Mind was first published in 1919. Several years ago, a movie was made called “The Secret”. All about the law of attraction. Everyone started making vision boards and using the law of attraction to achieve their wildest dreams. Well, Creative Mind, published in 1919, is literally, almost word for word, “The Secret”. I love this book, because it covers everything. It talks about being happy, living in the present, seeing the good in all things, about struggle and karma and about health and healing. After rereading this book again, it brought to my mind another book i’ve read by Gary Zukav. called “The Seat of The Soul. Well, I bought that book about 20 years ago and frankly, couldn’t understand a word of it. then. well, Zukav explains that we are infinite beings who are here in physical form to learn certain lessons so that we can evolve and heal. He calls this Earth School. Well, I believe that, but i think it’s more than that. I think of this as EARTH THEATRE. We’re not only here to learn, but to create. We are the producer, director and the star of our own story. WE have the power to create the life we want. Everything is available to us to create anything we want. We have the power of our minds.
