“Whatever you concentrate on, you empower. So if you’ve been concentrating on negative or adverse things, if you feel overwhelmed by difficulties and dysfunction, you can be sure that they will all be in your “hall of fame,” so to speak. Here’s a statue to dysfunction. Here’s another to frustration. And over there is one that honors struggle. Let’s bow down to the god of struggle and give that 15 minutes of your reality.
The first point of awareness is to discipline your mind, police your dialogue, and cut out and any deprecating statements – especially ones that destroy your energy and make you sick. If someone asks you how you feel, don’t answer, “Horrible, grim, life’s a nightmare.” Instead, answer, “Fantastic!’ It doesn’t matter if your life isn’t fantastic; that’s only the ego’s viewpoint. Spiritually, your life IS fantastic, it’s a great PRIVILEGE to be here. I think it’s important to remind yourself of that constantly.”
Stuart Wilde, in “Infinite Self”
