“If you have the guts to keep making mistakes, your wisdom and intelligence leap forward with huge momentum.” – Holly Near
Daily Nugget of Gold 1238
A lot of people are under the impression that it’s really difficult to keep a positive state of mind and for them we want to discuss how it doesn’t have to be some sort of impossible task. Hmm, maybe if they’re looking at it as being an unpleasant thing to do in the first place… hmm. Really, though- are you yourself imagining that this is going to be tough? There’s hope (and help) even if you are.
Why isn’t it difficult to keep moving on a bicycle once you get up to speed? Why does a campfire, once it gets going good, seem hard to put out? In both these cases, forces are acting upon them which continue the action. With a bicycle, inertia is the natural force acting upon us which makes maintaining speed easy. With a fire, heat and convection combine to ignite more fuel and that fuel then produces more heat and draws in more air as if it were breathing.
If we imagine that we ourselves have to keep feeding our brains “happy thoughts” in a constant stream, it could seem like a tremendous amount of work- and that’s probably why some people believe that it’s really a lot of work to keep it going. That kind of thinking, however, fails to take into consideration the natural laws which begin to act on our efforts once we get it going pretty well.
The Law of Attraction gives us more of what we are, on a deep down emotional level. This means if we are in a happy-positive state of mind, we will get more things in our reality which will help keep us there.
The Law of Growth multiplies the efforts we make. If we plant a happy thought ‘seed’ in our mind garden, we get a greater yield than just one additional thought- it can be tenfold what we planted- or more!
The Law of Reciprocity allows for us to share in extra blessings because of the blessing we are to someone else. We cannot help but to feel good by helping someone else feel that way about themselves.
Yes, it can take some work to get it going, why would this be any different than anything else? Some people have so much inertia built into their negative state of mind that it really can be quite the task to break that. What about you, though? Don’t you want to be happy? Don’t you desire to have all the riches life has to offer? There’s lots of natural help out there for those people who decide to make it happen- we just need to start in earnest, then keep it going long enough to be aided by natural law.

“What can I do to get the ball rolling in feeling good deep down inside?”
