Never underestimate the power of a positive thought on a difficult day.
Can a single positive thought really be the light at the end of the tunnel?
Absolutely. Not only once, but consistently. In the course of staying present during a difficult day, we are able to turn the tide on issues that are otherwise overwhelming us, and arrive at a new stasis in which our world is evolving in a very positive manner.
In the course of my discussing this with numerous friends, I have extolled the power of the law of attraction and received very mixed responses.
Some will adamantly shake their head and agree emphatically. These are the people who have taken the time to understand this thought process and embrace it. In the course of their expressed experiences, I am able to further validate my own personal experiences with this practice, by listening to what they have been able to accomplish under remarkable circumstances.
Is this strictly coincidental? I don’t believe so. In the course of focusing energy into the universe, I believe we are continuously, drawing reciprocal energy towards us. That which is like unto itself, is drawn.
So, when I have conversations with others about the same topic, and they are far more skeptical, or dubious, my only response is I honestly believe that this works and you might give it a try, because all you’re investing is taking the time to focus positively on the variables that really matter in your world, and where could be the harm in that?
As I don’t come from a religious background, I cannot make a comprehensive comparison between a prayer, and putting a positive thought out to the world. But, from my limited exposure, both feel very much aligned to me. Buddha would say, “We think what we become.” And many other enlightened masters would share a similar philosophy.
If, for no other reason, if you are having a bad day, just the emotional energy of taking a moment to focus on something positive brings a short respite from the rest of whatever that day is delivering, and gives you a moment that makes you feel joy in your heart and your soul.
We are not always in control in life, but attitude is unquestionably the only string we have to play upon, and as a result, I think it is incumbent upon all of us to start with attitude, and use that as a bedrock towards everything else in life.
