However, I feel this book is invaluable, especially for those of just deciding what exactly it is we want our lives to be, what our joy is, and discover we are the makers of our own destiny.
All that is has come about by thoughts. The whole precipice is that you get what you think about. If you are negative and have "don't," or "can't" thoughts, you'll get those things you don't want and more. Like attracts like. So be happy - expect, believe, and receive. I'm summarizing here- seriously, go out and get this book!
But getting to the point, one thing I thought pertinent to the arena of politics- particularly Campaign '08, came from the chapter "The Secret to the World." Hale Dwoskin is quoted saying,
"So if you're anti-war, be pro-peace instead. If you're anti-hunger, be pro-people having more than enough to eag. If you are anti-a-particular politician, be pro-his opponent. Often elections are tipped in favor of the person that the people are really against, because he's getting all the energy and focus."BINGO. My greatest fear? President Barack Obama or President Hillary Clinton. What are all negative thoughts based on? Fear. Let's change the feeling and the vibe. I am now going to put my energy TOWARDS McCain and away from Obama and Hillary. I am going to be pro-McCain and what he can do for the country. Or pro-my conservative Mayoral candidate, what have you. The more we worry about Obama or Clinton, the more our thoughts will shift toward those candidates, and the more we'll probably read, see, hear, and think about them to the point that they will win the election. I believe this is likely true.
The point is we all have the energy inside us to re-focus our thoughts and wants. I want a safe nation with a strong leader. Forget the negative. Focus on the positive and the "want." Join me?
Perhaps over pizza. I'm now thinking I want that and will have it. ;-)
