Overwhelming joy
    #1995647 - 10/10/03 01:09 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Fighting against despair will usually just serve to deepen and prolong it. Instead of fighting against despair, overwhelm it with joy. The best way to move away from something negative is to move toward something positive. For every ounce of discouragement that comes your way, respond with a pound of positive, joyful living. Rather than being overly concerned about what you're fighting against, find yourself something to live for. Put your time and energy in a positive, productive, creative, life-affirming direction.
Imagine what would happen if you were disrespectful, rude and insulting to another person, and yet that person offered you nothing but kindness, respect and gratitude in return. How long would you be able to maintain such a negative approach? Probably not very long, for your negativity would soon be overwhelmed by the sincere kindness being returned to you. In the same way, you can overwhelm the negativity that comes your way.
Respond to life with kindness, with joy, with positive, productive action and enthusiasm. Overwhelm the difficult world with goodness and joy.

Yep...spread the smiles around. Make eye contact with people. Say hello to strangers as they pass you on the street. Open a door for someone. Go do it!!

Let's also remember the reverse: to offer kindness, respect and gratitude to those who would harm  us.  It can be a better world.  Perfect & Beautiful. :smile:  :heart: :thumbup:

your totally right man...

every now and then, my girlfriend hurts my feelings (she's really snappish, although some of it might be my being a lil overly sensitive, but she really does snap really harshly sometimes), and I try to make her feel bad indirectly. Instead, I should acknowledge that I'm hurt, point it out to her without trying to be spiteful, and then give her love :-)

Love is a panacea (all kinds of love)
