“I once suggested to you that you remember only your loving thoughts. But the trick to that is that you must first become aware of them. So many become trapped in the depression, anxiety and insanity of the mind because they put all of their energy into perceiving what is amiss and no energy into perceiving their success as Christ.” (“The Way of Transformation,” The Way of Mastery, Chapter 20, Page 247)
Focusing on what is amiss is focusing on the negative, and I think God would make positive thinkers out of all of us. Here Jesus certainly clues us in to that. What we focus on expands and/or creates, and if we are constantly failing to love, we are missing out on the best thing out there.
God is Love, though many of us don’t understand how the Great Creator could be an emotion. Love is more than an emotion. It is the bedrock of creation. If God hadn’t recognized that Love needs to be in the ascendancy always, we would have destroyed ourselves long ago. Creation, the universes, don’t work if they aren’t founded on love. And when we lose our madness, this is one of the first things we will recognize.
We have been living in madness as long as we formed an ego that tried to leave out our divinity, our Oneness with God. It didn’t work. And nobody knows it better than us, lost in depression, anxiety, insanity–and knowing somehow deep within that there is a Higher Power Who will save us from ourselves.
Turn to God today–however we conceive of Him. He holds the Answer to every perplexity with which we have ever been confronted.

Thank you for reminding us of this eternal truth. When we see all things as just passing, and we apply the love of Christ to all, we diminish the power the negative appears to have over us, and we see and feel the peace intended for us all along.
