Getting Rid Of Stinking Thinking
“Love is life. And if you miss love, you miss life!” – Leo Buscaglia
Life is filled with ups and downs, bad things happen to good people and other statements like these suggest that we are powerless to affect our own outcomes. They suggest that life is something that happens to us; but life is something we create by all we say, do, think and feel!
My question today is what do you give out? What kind of things do you say? Are they positive or negative? What kind of things do you do? Are they the actions of a lover of your own life and vitality, a lover of those you know and care for, a lover of the people of this world and the environment?
How are your thoughts today? Are you applying “stinking thinking” and expecting the worst, or are you sure that all things wise and wonderful are coming your way? Are your feelings based on love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness and self-control or are they based on fear, self-loathing, hatred anger and the like?
If you accept that life only gives you back what you first give outwards. Then wouldn’t make sense to spread love everywhere you go, by the words you speak, the actions you take, the thoughts you think and the feelings you accept in your heart and to turn away from every opportunity to be negative?
