The message below is now one of my new favorites from bestselling author and spiritual teacher, Neale Donald Walsch. Why? Because it really hits me where it hurt (or used to hurt).
I was the BEST at “thinking positive”, but also ignoring the “elephant sitting in the middle of the livingroom”. His message below is for all of you who are great at “thinking positive” while your bank account, health and relationships are deteriorating and you’re not exactly tackling the “problems” head-on.
“On this day of your life, Karen, I believe God wants you to know…
…….that positive thinking does not mean turning into an ostrich.
Burying your head in the sand in the name of “staying positive” is not a good strategy. Wearing blinders rather than looking rightat what’s going on right now is not the way to create your vision for tomorrow.
Sculptors have to look at the block and begin cutting parts of it away before their vision emerges in the marble. Look directly at the block if you want to create the art.”
Love, Your Friend….
