Very true. I have come to realise that we create our own reality with our
thoughts and that if, eg, the concept of burglars does not enter into ones
reality, then burglars do not feel a like vibration as they pass by intent
on a crime. I try to cultivate only thoughts that create a caring
environment around myself and hopefully it will become a habit of thought. I
like A Besant's book on Thought Power.
