"Happiness can only grow and flourish in a peaceful, positive, pure and powerful mind, and will definitely die in a mental atmosphere filled with negativity, criticism, arrogance or depression. So, in order to prepare myself for the arrival of true happiness, the first thing I need to do is examine the quality of my thoughts. What kind of thoughts do I have all day long?
There are many different types of thoughts going on in my mind - necessary thoughts, positive thoughts, wasteful thoughts and negative thoughts. Am I able to recognise them? These various thoughts are responsible not only for my mental state of mind, but also for my feelings and emotions. Some physicians nowadays even state that health and sickness are deeply connected with our thought patterns - the way we think about ourselves and consequently about others. After all, everything starts in the mind, and one single thought brings peace or war, love or hate, happiness or depression. Now, let me ask myself how much time and energy do I consciously spend in keeping my mind healthy and positive? And how much time and energy do I waste with redundant or negative thinking? The law of energy tells us that positive thinking gives us energy whilst negative or wasteful thinking literally drains us of our mental energy.
To be happy I need a lot of mental power and so it's important not to waste my energy unnecessarily. As happy as I want to be, that positive I have to become. Do you know what is the weakest thought ever created? I can't do it. And what is the most powerful? Indeed, I can do it!"
Short extract from article "This thing called happiness" published in Kindred Spirit magazine - Spring 2012 edition
I love this. I have been spouting off about positive thought, words and inviting happiness in every direction the last few days! This morning, though, was not really at all positive. But I asked for help and my day, my view, its all turned around
I'm using my Stephanie King book "Life is Calling" to keep my thoughts positive. I am genuinely finding if I read a page in the morning I am more centred and have a smoother, calmer, more focused day. I also have an affirmation and a mantra I'm aiming to say each day. Sometimes I forget. But when I do say it again I do feel more balanced and centred.
