Does your thinking create your environment, or does your environment create your thinking? If your not being defined by what the word of the Lord says, then your left with your old memories of the past, and you will continue to operate from your old self and habits. Your environment is creating how you think and feel unconsciously. Every experience produces an emotion. So in essence you need the outer world to feel something. But in order to change that, you need to be greater than the conditions in your life. Disconnect from your outer environment and allow the word of God to be the foundation of your thoughts. Where you place your attention is where you place your energy. If you can’t think greater than how you feel, your feelings have become the means of your thinking. Your body therefore will get used to the emotions and feelings your accustom to. How you think and how you feel creates your state of being.
