To be able to love, we have to control our fears and the negative energy they produce. The following steps help create a good internal basis:
The mind cannot entertain two thoughts at the same time; therefore, when the first negative thought comes up, clear your mind and cancel that thought.You will discipline your mind and learn to focus on the positive.
.Try to discover the source of each negative emotion that crops up. This will lead you to self-knowledge and wisdom.
Avoid judging or censuring others. It is better to try to reinforce and strengthen the positive we see in others; otherwise, the finger you point at them tomorrow may be pointed back at you. If you strive to see the good both in you and others, very soon you’ll be much happier.
Living in darkness is not the same as remaining in a dark chamber—it means not being able to see the reality of life in harmony and light.You may choose to live always in darkness, but if you tire of it, you can turn on the light. Seeing clearly is a mental exercise that is achieved by gaining an awareness of all your positive emotions until you discover the best in you.
Observe role models or attitudes that you would like to imi- tate. Having a positive role model can be of help, provided you don’t idealize that person.
Choose which emotions you want for your relationships. You should have control over your life and your emotions. Try to observe each stimulus that comes to you, how you react, and what effect it produces in you. This mechanism will provide you with permanent self-awareness.
Bring to mind all opportunities open to you. When you be- lieve you’re hurt by the effect of your negative emotions, make a list of all the positive ways in which you could respond to this situation. This system creates a protective mechanism that will never fail you.
Visualize this list and work on the daily affirmations until you achieve your goal.
Remember how many times you have lost your footing while you were on the path of insecurity and fear. Now is the time to tread along the path of love. Your perfect guide will be the sweet whisperings that always spring from your heart.
