Positive Thoughts and Actions

Chris and Dave Wattenberg

Today we are in a multicultural, politically correct world. In the healing world, we use many terms to try to refer to the universal energy in a politically correct way. There have been many names. For this article we will use Divine. We do not refer to any religion or culture. We believe that this universal energy is a part of every person and every culture.
We are part of a changing world and as such we have to try to deal with it to the best of our ability. Friends came into our lives and leave again. Natural disasters happen and new growth comes. The only constant is the Divine. We must root ourselves to the Divine, the Source to life, fully and peacefully.
If one chooses to be negative they add to the problem. Negative attitudes inhibit the flow of creative energies. Anger, anxiety, destructive criticism, doubt, envy, fear, gossip, guilt, hatred, jealousy, laziness, shame, etc. are forms of negative thinking and actions. Make your thoughts positive. If you can be positive it is more effective and you can make a difference. Positive thinking and actions include creating, building, dancing, joy, happiness, humor, laughter, love, peace, play, singing, smiling, etc.
If we choose not to work in harmony with others we stay separate and we experience illness. When the components of our body do not work well together we experience disease. Negative behavior develops into bad habits, feelings etc.
Much of the language we use is negative. Often popular “positive” language is based in negativism. As an example when a person has a broken arm they lead to be positive with terms like “pain free” or having the “break fully healed.” These are rooted in negativism. They focus on the pain and the break. The positive expressions are “full mobility” the ability to “pitch a strike every time.”
Sometimes we need to let go and not be attached to the outcome. We cannot control others. You can give support and be nonjudgmental. Who knows what is really best for someone? For someone who has experienced a long bought with cancer, death may be the best outcome. A person often defines themselves by their disability. For them, to be healed of their disability would be to loose themselves.
We create a chain reaction with our thoughts. Let them be positive ones. Send positive energy in return for negative energy that comes your way. Trying to destroy negative energy just enhances it. Positive energy can neutralize the negative and will eventually flow back to the source of the negative energy. Sister Theresa was asked, during the Vietnamese ware, to join the anti-war protests. She refused. She told those who asked that she would be pleased to join in a rally for peace but not a rally against war. Anti-war is negative. Pro-peace is positive.
Why not send more positive energy to those who seem to need it. They are already feeling bad, that is why they are sending negative energy. By sending them love, concern and understanding we can turn it around. Open up to the peace that you are and your life will be more peaceful.
Approach people in a positive way instead of saying, No don’t do that. Suggest that they try it in another way. Once there was a kindergartener that would come to class every day and scribble on the paper. One day the teacher stopped her just as she completed an oval. The teacher said, “Look you made an ellipse.” The student was happy she had drawn something recognizable. After that she was good at making ovals. The teacher helped to expand that into other shapes, like faces, turtles etc. The teacher did not approach it in a negative way, but assisted her on her path of learning.
When we live with compassion, peace and harmony we experience well being.
We should embrace all living things, the natural beauty of our world, with compassion and love. The separations and divisions in our world caused by our thoughts and beliefs need to be examined and corrected. Together we can stop dividing the world by race, religion, sex, age, etc. and live in harmony and love. The Divine is not only outside you but within you as well. We need to open our hearts and receive the spirit around us. Align yourself to the natural forces. They will work with us, help us and support us.
We need to move past tolerance. Tolerance implies something harmful to us, as in “how much of this poison can you tolerate?” Again, tolerance is grounded in the negative. We need to move to acceptance, understanding, respect and honor. If we honor one another then we honor the Divine and live our lives to the fullest with the Divine at our side. Follow your inner guidance and put the Divine first in your life. Be at one with the Source. Choose to live fully and peacefully with your oneness.
