I don't know about you, but my brain only functions on positive thought.
Or at least, it only functions WELL on positive thought; positive thought and words motivate me.
Negative thinking...just writing that phrase...is disfunctional to me; it deflates me; there isn't enough room in my brain for negative thought.
Yes, it's a fact that we live in a broken world.
And that in and of itself may sound like negative thinking; but it's ultimately it's a truth of this world.
So what do we do?
Well, all I can tell is you what I do...and/or at least strive to do:
Ultimately, I live by a joyful rule...a hard and fast rule...but a joyful rule:
Whatever we concenrate on, expands.
Focus on the good, things get better.
Focus on the bad, things get worse.
Upon first consideration, it seems a difficult task to think positive, and be positive, mostly because we're not yet in Heaven and we are yet unable to grasp the Heavenly things of perfection.
But thinking only good thoughts all the time, even in the midst of turmoil...in fact...especially in the face of turmoil...is just like laughing at a bully:
Laughter renders bullies powerless.
As such, positive thoughts do the same with negative thinking and circumstances.
So concenrate only on the good.
Think only good.
Speak only good.
Project only good..and discard the negative...laugh in the face of a bully...reject them and reject all negative thought...reject the rejections!
We'll never be able to fix this broken world.
But we can certainly mend at least a few of its cracks with positive, joyful "glue-full," glee-full thinking.
And then - watch, as if by magic, how the heart-"breaks" become less and less...while the heart-"warmths" increase and increase again!
