It might sound insane but in many cases the “me” is extremely attached to negativity, to the extent of defending its right to be negative. It’s not uncommon to encounter a movement in you that is attracted to conflict or fear. This movement has its foundation in a fear based “root” thought. In many cases the root thought goes something like – “There is something inherently wrong with me” which can easily translate to “There is something inherently wrong with life”. If you are honest, you can sense that there is a movement in you which is trying to defend this negative thought.
Why are you defending a negative thought?
To pay attention to a negative thought is just a deep seated addiction. Anyone who understands the “creative” power of thoughts would know the insanity of giving value, or attention, to negative thoughts. When you become interested in a negative thought, you make it more powerful, so much so that it influences your entire energy field. Many people become so addicted to their negative thoughts that their energy field becomes highly negative, and hence in complete in conflict with the energy of life.
Understand that the energy of life is “pure positive”. In other words who you are in essence is pure positive energy. I use the terms “positive” and “negative” to create a picture in your mind of the nature of the energies; I am not judging anything as right or wrong. The negative energy in you is always in conflict with life and no matter how strongly you defend your right to think the thought that you are thinking, the truth remains that if you stay in conflict with life, you will experience the “resistance” in your body – this is what suffering is.
Usually people talk about how difficult it is for them to let go of negative thoughts and yet it’s their interest which keeps the negative thoughts in place. One needs to question deeply the reason for being interested in a negative thought. The main reason is that you look at life in a negative manner. You imagine that life is full of negativity, and that you need to protect yourself by constantly thinking about the negatives of life.
The truth is that life is not a stream of negativity, but a stream of positive energy. The negativity is simply created by “misplaced” or deluded thoughts about life. Every time you look at something and feel bad, it’s an indication that you are looking at it in a manner that conflicts with the “truth” of life.
Aligning with life is all about letting go of negativity
Life will never support you in a negative thought. When you are thinking negative, you are on your own. Life energy cannot move in support of a negative thought, and hence you feel tremendous amount of stress and struggle when you take any action based on “negative” thinking (out of fear). Stop identifying with the negative energy movement in you; let its momentum fizzle away by lack of interest.
If you want life to work for you, it’s time that you start aligning with the way life “thinks”. Life energy only moves from a place of love, never from a place of lack or fear. So if you look at a situation in a negative manner, you are already in conflict with life, and are cut off from the intelligence of life. The accumulation of negative energy within you is the result of constant preoccupation with a negative pattern of thinking. It’s simply an addiction, or an unconscious habit, because no one would consciously want to dwell on negative thoughts knowing that it’s going to create a negative reality.
When negative thoughts arise in the mind, just let them be. Don’t push them away; just don’t fuel them with interest. Let the negative thought swirl in your mind as long as its energy is able to sustain it, don’t feed it any additional energy by your “interest”. Slowly but surely these thoughts will start dying off from the lack of energy because life inherently does not support a negative thought.
