TOLERANCE TO NEGATIVE THINKING
THE DASTARDLY DEED - HOW TOXIC
WASTE RUINS YOUR LIFE
1. Toxic waste attacks,
negates, and destroys a positive operating system. God
designed positive thinking to be the natural software for your
mind. Your mind works best when itís under the influence of a
positive operating system. Toxic waste attacks all the
components of a positive operating system. One by one, each
component comes under assault. Positive self-image and positive
self-esteem start to collapse under the sheer weight of the
inner pollution. Positive focus becomes blurred and positive
expectations melt away. Positive direction turns to
disorientation. Positive spirituality fades as the power of
Godís love becomes a distant memory. Your good finder and your
God finder shut down. Positive congruence disintegrates as your
mind, heart, and will all head in different directions.
Toxic waste attacks, erodes, and destroys positive values.
Toxic waste slowly, silently, and relentlessly annihilates the
positive values that form the foundation on which you build your
life. When you lose your values, you lose your way. Trying to
live without positive values is like trying to sail on the ocean
without a compass. You donít know where you are or where you
are going. You become disoriented and lost as you wander
through a wilderness of bankrupt values.
Toxic waste makes it vastly more difficult to have a positive
personal relationship with God. It clouds your inner vision
making it harder to see God at work in your life. It dulls your
hearing making it more difficult to hear Godís voice of love.
Toxic waste makes you unclean on the inside. It creates
inner pollution that fills your heart and mind with stuff you
donít want to have inside. You experience thoughts you wish
would go away, but wonít. To make matters worse, when the
pressures of life squeeze you, your inner pollution comes out
for everyone to see. You say and do things that reflect the
pollution found inside your heart and mind.
Toxic waste sticks. Itís hard to get rid of toxic waste;
itís covered with mental and emotional superglue, and it sticks
in your heart and mind. In fact, it stays forever once it gets
inside. Although you may forget about it, itís still there, and
it will pop up into your consciousness at the most inopportune
Toxic waste grows. What you think about expands. The more
toxic waste you put into your mind, the more it proliferates.
It feeds on itself and spreads into new areas. The more you
focus on it, the more it controls your thoughts and emotions.
Toxic waste steals the most precious commodity of your life Ė
your time. Every minute you spend putting toxic waste into
your mind is a minute in which you are not putting in positive
things. You have 1440 minutes every 24 hours and how you use
each minute is a choice. Are you going to use that minute to
fill your mind with toxic waste or are you going to use it to
fill your mind with positive things. You canít do both. Itís
one or the other and you must choose which it will be. If you
choose toxic waste, your life gets worse. If you choose
positive things, your life improves.

SPEAKING THE LANGUAGE OF BLESSINGS AND LOVE
Itís hard to have a relationship with someone you cannot see and who
never talks audibly to you. Nevertheless, personal relationships are
possible even when you are blind and mute. Just ask Helen Keller.
Relationships donít depend on speech and sight.
Although God wants to have a personal relationship with you, He
chooses to communicate in non-verbal ways. Talk is cheap, and itís
actions that count. God doesnít just talk about his love; He
demonstrates it every day by opening the windows of heaven and pouring
blessings into your life.
Make no mistake, when blessings come, they arrive special delivery
straight from God. Although God does not speak in audible tones, He
speaks just the same. When God speaks, He speaks in blessings and
love, because that is his language.
If you want to have a conversation with God, you need to learn the
language of blessings and love. How can you learn this language?
First, you must RECOGNIZE all of your blessings. This happens
in your mind. You recognize Godís voice of love as he speaks
blessings into your life.
Second, you feel GRATITUDE for those blessings in your heart.
Those blessings make the trip from your head to your heart, and now
gratitude wells up inside. It feels good to know that each blessing
is an expression of Godís love and care.
Third, you GIVE THANKS to God who has given you his special
favor. This is the moment when you talk to God and thank him for all
that heís done on your behalf.
Fourth, you PRAISE GOD for all your blessings. Praise is a
reminder that God is the Source of all good things, and that there are
no shortages in Godís kingdom of love. Praise refocuses your mind on
Godís love and care.
You can have a talk with God anytime and anywhere. Itís not hard, and
anyone can do it. Just learn the language of blessings and love.
