The possibilities are endless.
This phrase gets used and abused, but that does not make it any less true.
Despite all the messages to the contrary, we live in an abundant universe. That means that the information we are often presented with of lack and limitation are incorrect. There are endless possibilities.
What this translates to for everyone is that we can create all the good things we want. Yes, there are going to be bad days and yes bad things that are utterly out of our control will happen. Yet we still have unlimited options for what we want to create with our lives.
It does more often than not take a conscious effort to see the world for possibility. Look at how inundated with negative messages we are. We see war, hatred, greed, corruption, extremism and never-ending messages of fear plastered all over the media. Hard not to focus on these and see a world of lack and scarcity and impossibility.
Yet there are alternatives. We have more direct control over how we feel and how our own personal lives will be than we allow ourselves to experience. We can look at the world not as a scary place full of fearful nightmares, but instead as a place where the possibilities are endless, where we can make and change and remake our lives, a world full of possibility where we can manifest our exciting dreams and learn and grow and change as we would desire.
It is unfortunate that finding positivity seems to take more effort than finding negativity. I think this is largely because in the world of 24 hour news and instant communications negativity just manages to get spread more quickly. But because possibilities are in fact endless, we can change that. We can counter the messages of despair with hope, of hate with love, of war with peace, of exclusion with inclusion, of intolerance with tolerance, of division with unification; we can respond to the negativity not with more negativity but with positivity, negative messages with positive messages.
I know it is very hard to turn it all off, and I know that it is important to be informed. However, allowing the negative messages to soak in and the hopelessness to overwhelm is something you can choose to stay away from. We live in a world of endless possibilities, and because this is true we can choose instead to find hope and positivity and spread that. We can share things that make us happy when things that are not are tossed at us.
Anything is possible. We just need to remember that the next time we think there is no hope and no possibility.
Finding positivity is not hard, it just requires action. Knowing that there are endless possibilities, we can find hope and joy and happiness even when we are inundated with negativity. When we choose to see life for its endless possibilities, we can choose to be hopeful, seek out the possible, find and create better lives for ourselves. As such we empower ourselves. When we feel empowered, we often spread that feeling to others around us, and as such can build more positive feelings. We can use the positive feelings this generates to dissolve negative feelings. When we take away negative feelings, we open up space to let in positive feelings, and that is something we can be grateful for. Gratitude leads to happiness. Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude. Positive attitude begets positive energy, and that is always a good thing.
This is the eighty-sixth entry of my Positivity series. It is my hope these weekly messages might help spread positive energies for everyone. Feel free to share, re-blog and spread the positivity.
