Arhata gives a view on Negative Thinking
Arhata leads an admirable street Freedom of Speech movement, now in Washington state, USA
It’s ok to be negative …sorta!
Reset the brain! In the brain is a thing called ‘the mind’. The brain is the ‘hardware’. The mind is the replaceable ‘software’. Given that, it’s ok to be negative …sorta! The most famous person in the world was negative. He called himself, ‘the only begotten son of god’, implying that everyone else was less, and in reality were going to a place of everlasting torture that he called ‘hell’. Goodness, gracious, and billions continue to worship that!
Now the truth is also that this Jesus was very positive also in actions and words! All people are a cocktail of negative, positive, and something that fits neither category. Some of the most negative people, can be very positive, both at times and in certain behaviors. Life doesn’t exist without both and everything possible. Life isn’t black and white or just duality, but non duality or with a myriad of possibilities.
We are creatures of habit. If it were possible to measure each moment of you, and compare the amount of positive vs negative, most would likely be a close combination of both. What is, and has been rarely doesn’t become a habit unless ‘energy’ is given to replacing one habit with a more positive one.
Expecting the best in people, brings out the best in people. The reverse is also truth. You have a choice to see the darkness or the light. See the best in people yet use your common sense to ascertain whether ‘they’ can see it, if it’s through their negativity. Remember you are me and I am you. In the light, that can be seen, and is what we all want to see! If you do not trust life to unfold, the mind takes over and it becomes a game of strategy, motivated by anxiety. This mistrust is unfair. Life has given us so much, and yet we do not trust it.
Society has been diagnosed with many disorders, yet it’s pointing a finger at you. Brush it off and seek the light within, and let society be where it’s at. In life there is a natural order. It is in you, turn your eyes around and see your source – love.
You are the divine order that awaits your recognition. Keep the flame of love alive and growing! Don’t let negativity hijack your beauty and love. Experience the revolution of the mind and heart. Break the bondage of negativity into the light of positivity, The time to ‘breakout is now, and for you! Welcome home!
Happiness is strange; it comes when you are not seeking it. When you are not making an effort to be happy, then unexpectedly, mysteriously, happiness is there, born of purity, of a loveliness of being. Jiddu Krishnamurti
