Host: Is there any difference between my thoughts and my beliefs? Will Maney: Well, the way that we want to structure that is that again, mind whatever that thing is does one thing only. Mind thinks. And this things that they think we call thoughts. So the statement is mind thinks thoughts. Mind never stops thinking. Those thoughts cluster that they get filtered through our belief system, so the belief is the place that we really have to be mindful of but more often than that we find our way to the core beliefs through the thoughts. So I don’t want that to be confusing but there really is a distinction. Thoughts could filtered through beliefs, it is in the realm where we sort of give them belief and that’s where we empower them, that’s when we send them out as if it’s the other form already filled out. So there’s a slight distinction, we’re not actually bagged down by that but I just want you to be mindful or aware of the fact that we’re always thinking and those thoughts would be filtered through our belief system and that’s why we’re walking through not just our thoughts but we’re walking through our beliefs and action. Male: It’s famous even if—if ever have a good life, it’s the thought of that stuff of making all else as well. Will Maney: And that’s a—I mean, that sentence is a tricky sentence again, that’s for my teacher, my mentor, and interestingly enough when that gets read correctly and properly that’s a rhetorical. The answer is of course, but I oft that as sort of like an insight and a gift and a sample of what’s out there when we begin to really sort of listen. Because if my life is made up of my thoughts for reading before my eyes, okay, and if my thoughts were things that I can actually control and if basically I am complaining mostly because I’m not controlling my thoughts, well the only common denominator of the whole formula is me. And so rather than blame somebody else all of a sudden I wake up to the fact that then they say we’ll guess what, it even gets better. Because this mechanism that you now are at least aware of and coming into a proper alignment with, do you realize the very fabrical life itself responds. And I say, you know holy—such a thing. No, they never did that on me. The fabric of life itself responds to that. And at some point we’ll talk about—so I don’t know whether to jump around or not, is there a better way to do this? Male: No, I don’t think so. I mean you can get around and—as much as you imply. Will Maney: Well, because that’s—yeah, so I said we did that. What’s the next one? Because at some point you know, I want to get to someone that talk about the wrap around surround sound. Male: Yeah, that’s actually—and I had separate it from my thoughts.
