PostSubject: Today's Thought; Negative Thoughts   Wed 25 Aug 2010, 3:22 pm





When a person drowns himself in negative thinking he is committing an unspeakable crime against himself.
~ Maxwell Maltz




Negative thoughts can rule our lives as compulsively as an addiction. The feelings of power we get from holding a dismal and gloomy outlook deprive us of the positive and pleasant parts of life. Some of us have said, "If I expect the worst, I won't be disappointed. If I think the worst about myself, no one else can cut me down." It is like taking a driving trip and looking only for trash and garbage in the ditches, ignoring the beauty beyond. Indeed, what we see may be real, but it is a very limited piece of the picture.


When we have relied on negative thinking, it feels risky to give it up. We cannot do it in one day. We can begin by imagining ourselves with a more open attitude toward ourselves and the world. Then we can try it out as an experiment in little ways, with no commitment. Finally we reach the point where we can take a risk and entrust our Higher Power with the outcome.



Today, I will experiment with hopeful and positive thoughts about what happens.

Todays thought is a Hazelden reading from the book "Touchstones"
