Some people feel saved by grace, usually they are speaking of the grace of God. I often am saved by the grace of thought….

The rage in your eyes

Makes my self go and hide

into a world all my own

by thought’s grace

I find my place.

Hurl your anger

fire and ice

against a shell they hit and fall,

dead to the ground

they can not be within this place.

 I stand tall by thought’s grace.

    That is nice you can turn to thought. Even though I am Catholic I sometimes turn to thought because I have according to others a very active imagination. I turn to my imagination thought. My dog was carried away by an eagle I made my stuffed kioala bear my best friend. My dog was my best friend. so Now Katydid is my best friend and has to be with me constantly when I am at home

    My mind wanders all over the place and it doesn’t give me any grace. As a matter of fact, it quite often hurts me.

    Mind manifests as sure as night follows day .

    , Thoughts are wavelike energy forms This is how we create

    our own reality ..
