After the U.S. bombed #Syria, I thought, what good could possibly happen from this knee-jerk reaction from 45?
After any earthly disaster happens, we wonder how the world will respond. Typically, everyone gathers together the needed energy to rebuild and gets too it immediately. The U.S. saw more love and empathy during #9-11 than I’ve ever seen before in the country. From disaster came compassion for each other and strong sense of willingness to help and give of our time and energy to a greater cause. It’s as if within each individual is a power to revive and a survival instinct that is so powerful that is can get over just about any tragedy.
However, there is also an opposing force that each of has—probably because each response in us has an equal and opposite force—that leads us to the highest of highs and wonders just as often: How long will this good last?
This kind of opposing force brings about anxiety and keeps us working, often too hard and too long to remain at homeostasis. We desire for good, but when it comes we try to force it to stay.
I had gone through this pattern in my own life. At 56, I’m weary from the rollercoaster ride. The reason I’ve let go of this yoyo pattern is because I realize that nothing in life stays the same. Everything changes every moment of every day. We have little control of anything.
We do, however, have control over how we REACT to life events.
As someone who has lived a life full of great highs and, also, many negative forces, especially as a child; I realize that even the worst of negativity can be used to drive us toward our highest enlightenment. I have friends who have gone through even worse times than I and are highly successful businessmen and women.
When I ask them why their childhood didn’t affect them negatively in life, they will often reply: “Oh, I was angry for a long time. But, I realized that if I wanted life to change, I was going to have to do. I was going to have to study harder, work harder, and draw positivity to me.”
How do we demagnetize ourselves from negative attraction to positive?
We are polarized into positive and negative thinking from our thoughts. The theory and the solution is as simple as this:
Besides changing your negative thinking, which is a difficult process for most, we also must learn to dream positivity! We can’t just hope for financial prosperity. We must believe that it is possible for us, open our heart to being led toward prosperity, then take the frightening steps out of our paranoid and fearful past into the light.
- “Knock and the door shall be opened unto you.”
- “Seek and you shall find.”
- “Ask and you will hear the answer.”
Remember this story:
18 Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. 2 He said: “In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared what people thought. 3 And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary.’
4 “For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care what people think, 5 yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually come and attack me!’”
6 And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says.
7 And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? 8 I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”
This is a metaphor for positive thinking. If you continue to tell yourself that you are made for prosperity, even in the face of “NO YOU ARE NOT,” then you are on the road to freedom from negative thinking.
Once the negative thoughts that manifest in your physical life are gone, then the only thoughts left to manifest will be—must be—positive! That’s the law of the universe.
GIVING AND RECEIVING IN LIFE IS OFTEN DIFFICULT. I have been giving from my heart about 2-3 hours a day for 7 years to create advice–spirit, mind and body for millions of readers. Recently, I have been led to ask people to give back as a way for me to learn how to receive.
As a tribute to my belief that “prosperity is all around us, should we choose to receive,” I want to invite those of you who want to send an offering for the joy or advice you have received from Finding Authentic You Blog.
“We must give to receive, always. This is the Law of Reciprocity.”
