Our Internal Ecosystem Determines the Quality of Our Sustainable Life.
Ecosystem, the complex of living organisms, their physical environment, and all their interrelationships in a particular unit of space. (www.britannica.com)
If you want to change your life you have to change your attitude; if you want to change your attitude, you must change your thoughts (your belief system). If you want to change your belief system you have to change your thinking habits; if you want to change your thinking habits, you must change your will. Your wants do not determine your life; it is your will. You must make a quality decision to change. Free will.
Do not empty your mind to give space for negative thoughts to take up residence. Mark 4:24 Be careful what you are hearing. The measure of thought and study you give [to the truth you hear] will be the measure [of virtue and knowledge] that comes back to you – and more(besides) will be given to you who hear. (Amp)
You may want to exercise but that will only happen when you choose (will) to do so. You can go through the routine mentally, but unless you get up and move, nothing changes. Your imaginary workout can consume days, weeks and years, with no results unless you choose to activate your will to exercise. This principle applies to anything you want to change in your life.
You can choose to be in a boat or in an ark. A boat can be capsized, but an ark is secure. God’s word is an ark; our efforts are like a boat, subject to destruction. Josh 1:8 tells us to meditate on God’s word, day, and night. We are to fill our minds with the acts, words, and blessings of God. And then, God’s says, we will make our way prosperous and have good success.
So, what makes up your internal ecosystem? How is it different from the ecosystem you desire to live in?
