“As some persons begin to discover the relationship between thoughts and events, they begin to be afraid of thinking negative thoughts, worrying, “Oh, no! I just had a thought of something bad happening to me – that means I will attract it!” This anxiety comes from an incomplete understanding of how thoughts attract events. There is no need to be concerned about stray thoughts of disaster or failure. They have no power unless we feed them with fear.
We are thinking many, many thoughts per second (Buddha said trillions) and we are also catching the thoughts of those around us. Occasional thoughts of negativity or failure may creep into our consciousness, but if we “throw them off” before we indulge in them, they cannot harm us. It is thought HABITS that count. Continually dwelling on the same thoughts, feelings, and mental pictures begets conditions. Keep your thought PATTERNS positive, and little negativity shall have no power to penetrate your established force field of positivity.”
Alan Cohen in, “The Dragon Doesn’t Live Here Anymore”
