"You cannot allow yourself the luxury of a negative thought. You cannot allow that which is less than God and the Spirit to be a force in your life. Do not turn and strike at someone else. Be loving to yourself and to others, which is really the same thing. If you hit at another, you hit at the Lord, and you hit at your own divine nature. You really do not want to do that." John-Roger, DSS
Using the phrase "Luxury of a Negative Thought" struck me as a deep truth. Sometimes it's so much easier to go into the negativity, putting people down, gossiping, criticizing. It is a luxury like eating cake. If you continually eat cake you will get sick. Eating cake is a luxury that gives you a quick fix but can not sustain you and if taken in continuously can lead to you not functioning.
May we look toward the good thoughts, the positive focus and may we move in our world from that place.
Peace be still.
