The power of the negative is the ‘demon of illusion’ that controls one from seeking answers in the light of the direction that serves the blessings and truth that always await . It’s important to stop and, try to work one’s way through the quagmire of the swamps of life. As in the great movie ‘Network’ where the actor Peter Finch, playing an extremely frustrated newsman, yells “I’m mad as hell”, there is a time (NOW) to stop, change directions and, move toward the answers!
The ‘negative’ is a ‘quick sand’ of life and, all love’s treasures. The mind that has accepted the negative as ‘all of reality’ is in delusion. To be deluded by the negative is to consistently convince oneself that all is ‘useless’ and, maybe it’ll change tomorrow, at best. Nothing is going to change unless one changes directions toward the light. The ‘light’ means to check out all the positives from minor to major that move one in a new direction.
Patience for results from the change of direction is critical. Rare is that which changes overnight. The ‘journey’ on the new direction needs to be looked at as fun and exciting by rewarding the mind with the affirmative feelings of each small step, even when no results seem apparent. Progress usually happens invisibly until one day the ‘light’ seems more visible.
Don’t just ‘believe’ changes can be made, ‘know it’, because it’s true and, others are living proof. Let vision and hope be a catalyst to move you in the new direction but, be open to the reality of what comes and turning it into advantages, be it even a negative barrier. Accept the ‘negative’ as a means to use for answers to convert to a positive direction. The ‘negative’ comes as a challenge to overcome, so face it, use it, convert it into the positive. The choice is one of two – accept negativity or, ‘accept only the positive while, not ignoring the negative’! Use the ‘negative’ to fuel the positive and, that it too is a teacher.
