TOLERANCE TO NEGATIVE THINKING
RADICALLY SHIFT YOUR FOCUS TO THE MOST POSITIVE FORCE IN THE
Godís love is the most positive
and most powerful force in the universe, and when you shift your
focus to it, you receive the power to overcome lifeís
biggest challenges. When you connect with Godís love, good
things start happening in your heart and mind.
I would like to be able to tell
you that if you open your heart to Godís love, all negative
thoughts would immediately and permanently disappear, and you
would be a positive person for the rest of your life. If I told
you that, I would be lying.
Opening your heart to Godís
love and becoming one of his children will not make all your
problems disappear. What it will do is start the process of
healing. The most powerful force in the universe is Godís love,
and when that loves flows through your heart and mind, you start
to get better, but getting better takes time.
If you had a problem with
negative thinking before you were born spiritually, you will
still have a problem with it after you are a child of God. If
you were on medication for depression before you connected with
Godís love, you will still need medication after you call God
Healing and wholeness take
time. First, you must let Godís love wash the toxic waste out
of your mind. Second, you must put positive things into your
mind to take its place.
You canít just throw negative
thoughts out. As soon as you stop tossing them out, they come
right back like a negative boomerang. The only way to keep
negative thoughts out is to put something in to take their
place. When you put a positive thought in your mind, it pushes
a negative one out. That is how you get rid of negative
thoughts. You displace them.
You become what you think about
all day long. You must think about positive things, talk about
positive things, read about positive things, write about
positive things, listen to positive things, and look at positive
things in order to displace negative thoughts from your mind.
The only way to consistently and persistently have a positive
mind is to keep it full of positive things.
You can be as positive as you
want if you are willing to spend the time putting positive
things into your mind.
NEVER ATTACK AND ARGUE WITH
Negative thoughts are
parasites. They live off the energy you give them when you
focus on them. Focusing on them is like giving them a
transfusion with your own blood. You become psychologically
anemic as they suck the blood from your mental veins. They
become stronger as you become weaker. You destroy yourself when
you do this.
When negative thoughts pop into
your mind, they are weak and vulnerable. If you donít infuse
them with your energy, they die. They cannot attack and suck
the energy from your mind by themselves. They wait for you to
do the job for them. The energy transfer begins only if you
focus on them. You start to wilt and wither as they suck the
strength from your soul.
The solution to this dilemma is
simple. Itís not even a dilemma. Donít argue with your
negative thoughts. They go away if you donít argue with them.
The problem is all your
fighting instincts tell you to do just the opposite. Fight,
struggle, you can win this battle. Thatís what most people do.
They fight to the point of exhaustion, and then they wonder why
they lost the battle after such a valiant fight. Every story
you read about achievement and success tells you if you fight
the good fight, eventually you win.
The story is true. If you
fight the good fight, you will win, unless you are fighting
against negative thoughts. There is a time to fight, and a time
to let go.
When it comes to negative
thoughts, itís time to let go. There is no other way you will
ever get negativity out of your mind. Fighting with it will not
make it go away; it will only make it stronger.
