Lately some of the questions have been about negative people. I was wondering if that could be turned around. You have heard about "look for the good and praise it." So what happens if every thing we say is positive, OK say every other thing. I know positive is an idea not the same for all.

But, I am not talking about changing others just ourselves.

What do you think?

Don't change technique (the way of looking at life) in hope of changing the core from which the technique stem effortlessly. It's who you are that defines how you go about things. By changing how you go about things you won't change who you are. It will work only temporarily anyway, for at some point you will run out of will power, motivation or inspiration to keep the way of going about things different from who you are. Instead change who you are, and how you live will change automatically.

By who you are I mean, HOW DO YOU DEFINE YOURSELF? Who do you THINK you are? In which light do you see yourself? What is the stage you created, what is the script according to which you are playing your role? And why the hell would you do that? Did you put yourself into that role or have you been chosen by someone else unconsciously accepting that this role fits you? Your life can be the greatest adventurous story ever written, if you dare to imagine it that way. If you dare....

the only light is in the truth. to praise one self is self rightenous. and to not see our inner darkness and let it control us is not helping us. if you let darkness control you you are not light but darkness. then how can you be brilliance? and if you let the darkness of someone else control you then you are 2 darkness. in the truth darkness is reveal.

The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.

to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.'

For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.

This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.

who leave the straight paths to walk in dark ways,

Hi Tom, Start from the point of love and your whole life will be transformed. Love is light. Look at life with love in your heart. In otherwords see love, hear love, taste love, touch love, smell love, sense love. And no it won't make you any less a man it will simply make you a wonderfull happy and lucky human being.

To do this you have to consciously be aware of the beauty and love that surrounds you. Most people don't believe that love is everywhere and in everything for they only see war and negativety and ugliness. When you deliberately try to live from love you will become love and the world you live in will transform. (and no I'm not talking about soppy sickly sweet love)

This doesn't mean that you must put blinkers on and ignore the ugly and negative circumstances in your life for that would be foolish it simply means see reality as is for the world is full of love and there is more love in the world of today than ever before. Most people don't believe this and think the world is going to the dogs. As much negativety there is in this world there is also positivity but you have to seek it out. Look for the good in life and life will be good. Below is a little example of how to do this and you will see what I mean.

SEE LOVE: Consciously search to see beauty in all it's forms. Trees, flowers, birds, water in other words nature. Animals especialy pets and people too. Everywhere you look when you see something that is pleasing to the eye it is looking at love. It can be man made as well like architecture, jewelry, fashion, cars and bikes and so on. Once started it will take a bit of time and afterwards you will be programed to see love automatically.

HEAR LOVE: Listen to the beauty of birdsong or flowing water or your favourite music or the unmistakable thumping sound of a Harley. Everything you listen to that pleases you is listening to love. Be aware and open your ears to the sound of love.

TASTE LOVE: All you love to taste like icecream or pizza but do so consciously when eating so that you can enjoy every tasty morsel. All you drink (too much alcohol isn't love) like hot chocolate or that coffee you like so much.

TOUCH LOVE: And no I'm not talking of sexual love although that falls into this category as well. Touch the soft velvety petals of a flower or run your hand through water or stroke your beloved pet. Touch all that is pleasing to you providing it doesnt belong to someone else and if it does and you want to touch please ask permission first otherwise you could get into trouble. Never touch people without permission and never touch someone elses children.

I shall leave you to figure out the rest of them but it goes to say use all your senses as well as your sixths sense to see, hear, taste, touch, smell, and sense love.

That way you are not focusing on yourself but on the world arround you and pretty soon the love you see and hear and taste and smell and touch and sense and will be directed back to you from all angels and your life will transform. Nothing and I mean nothing attracts the good things in life like love. Happy loving.

I loved your post Paulina! The only thing I would say is that if we live in a world full of love, then why should we need permission to touch other people and their children? I hope for a world without all this paranoia and connotations, where kindness is not misinterpreted.
