Thinking Positive is more than just a good habit. Our thoughts create our universe. If we are always focused on the bad things that can and/or have happened to us, we will create more bad things. If we keep our focus on good things, positive things, that we want to happen to us, then that is what we will create with our thoughts.
Everything in our universe began with a thought. The thought became an idea. That idea became a plan. That plan was put into action, and that action developed a new reality. For example, Henry Ford had a thought, "there must be a better, more efficient way of going from one place to another, other than using horses." That thought became an idea, "let's make a carriage that moves under its own power." That idea solidified into a plan for a "horseless carriage". His plan was put into action and cars were born ... our new reality.
A very good friend of mine once said, "once a thought is created, it can never be destroyed." Once a thought comes into your mind it becomes a part of our existence forever. That being the case, Thinking Positive is essential. Don't you think?
There is a new conscious awareness awakening in the human race. We are beginning to become aware of our true spiritual selves. This is the next step in human evolution. We are spiritual beings, created in God's image. As spiritual beings, our thoughts create our universe. These new insights now make the importance of Thinking Positive crystal clear. Our thoughts have real power.
Everything in our universe is made up of energy. Certain things appear to us as solid, liquid or gaseous because of their unique vibration level. Even our thoughts are energy. That is why Thinking Positive can change our universe. One energy applied against another energy produces changed energy. The most powerful of all energy, of course, is love, and that is why "Love can change the world".
Our emotions, thoughts, feelings and attitude effect everything around us, because these things are real energies that we produce and send out into the world. This is the reason why the "Law of Attraction" really does work. The energy that we send out to the universe creates what we want. The Bible tells us that "faith can move mountains". This is so very true, because the more we believe in something, the stronger our own energy is that we are sending out. If we had many people sending out the same positive energy, just think of the things we could accomplish. It boggles the mind, doesn't it?
Thinking Positive not only helps ourselves, but it also helps everyone around us. If we are upbeat and positive, the energy will enter those around us and lift them up as well. Whether we are consciously aware of it or not, we constantly send our energy out into the world around us, and that energy effects everyone around us. Have you ever been in a room where everyone was down and depressed, and someone walks in who is happy and upbeat? Everyone in the room is effected, aren't they? The general mood in the room becomes happier and more relaxed. You can literally feel the change. That is real energy.
Keep this very important concept in mind at all times ... if we constantly expect the worst things to happen, then the worst things will happen. If we constantly expect good things to happen, then good things will happen. It's only logical, right? Make it a habit to always be an optimist.
Everyone lives in their own little universe. It consists of our perceptions of our surroundings. Examples: You see a teenage boy taking food from a supermarket without paying for it. Your perception may be that he is a thief. On the other hand, he may not have any money and his kid sister is starving. A glass on a table; you may see it as half full or half empty. An exotic dancer; you may see a person who is ethically challenged, or she might be a single mom trying to take care of her two young children. You see a drunk homeless person on the street, you might see a worthless bum, or you might see an opportunity to help a fellow human being.
Perceptions can also be detrimental to yourself. I'm sure you have heard it said that a thief believes that everyone is a thief. His way of thinking is that if anyone gets half a chance, they will rob him blind, so the universe that he has created for himself is that of constant paranoia. This is his way of thinking all the time. This is what he believes; his perception of the world.
Now if you constantly keep your focus on Thinking Positive, your own little universe is much more pleasant. You focus and believe that only good things will happen, so your little universe stays happy, relaxed and peaceful. Which would you rather have as your life? Peace or paranoia? Make it a habit of Thinking Positive all the time. Make it a way of life, and good things will come to you for the rest of your life.
Don't get me wrong here. Bad things will still happen in your little universe even if you are always Thinking Positive, that is just a part of life. What I am saying is that Thinking Positive will make you much happier in your own little universe, and let's face it, life is too short to be miserable. It is much better, and healthier, to be happy as much as you possibly can in this life.
Life is full of trials and obstacles for us to overcome. If it wasn't, we wouldn't learn anything. Bad things will happen in our lives. How we react to those things is our own choice. You can perceive it as bad; the "poor me" syndrome, or you can perceive it as an opportunity to learn and grow. You get to choose.
A loving spiritual walk is not easy by any stretch of the imagination. The more loving and spiritual your walk in life, the more obstacles will be thrown into your path by the evil forces in this world. You must choose to keep looking for the positive outcome. You must choose to be happy (yes, that is a choice), and you must choose to keep a positive attitude.
How you feel is entirely your choice. How you perceive life events is your choice. Whether you are happy or sad is your choice. If you want to be happy and content in life, you must choose that and do what it takes to make that your reality. No one else is going to do it for you. Take charge of your life and be positive.
Do random acts of kindness and make our world a better place for all of us. Love you all.
