Love (Loving Mankind)
I am going to share with
you a fact about the mind that most people don’t know. Do you know that
the subconscious mind only knows YOU? Your mind cannot tell the
difference between you and someone else. It only knows you. You are
only “you” in consciousness.
It is more commonly known
that the subconscious records everything that you have ever thought,
said, heard, felt and experienced. It has a perfect memory of
everything that has happened and ever will happen to you.
Now, what I am getting to
here is that when you think of someone else in a critical, negative,
disparaging way, guess what? Your subconscious thinks you are talking
about yourself. And the subconscious mind does not reason or analyze…it
just accepts your words and ideas as an order to be carried out.
So you have just called
someone a jerk…or something more expressive. Your mind hears this and
records it and as far as your subconscious mind goes, you are now a
jerk. I’ll bet you’ll be thinking about that one for a while.
This gives a whole new
insight to that old expression: “If you can’t say something nice, don’t
say anything at all."
Interesting bit of
trivia: Did you know that Thumper said that in the 1941
animated classic, Bambi?
What we focus on, we
create. What we repeatedly focus on, we create even faster. So if we
are constantly criticizing our fellow man – finding fault, complaining,
concentrating on flaws – then…we are helping to create and perpetuate
the very thing we are critical about – and it doesn’t matter if your
target is a family member, a neighbor, a boss, a politician, a
president, a terrorist. And who is really the target of these negative
thoughts and words? That’s right. Ourselves. We poison our own systems
with these negative ideas that we think we are projecting elsewhere.
And what we are concentrating on, we will attract more of, and then we
will have more to complain about and the cycle goes on – whether on an
individual level, as a community, or as a nation.
So the way to contribute to
the beauty, goodness, positivity and healing of this world is to keep
our minds and energy focused on the goodness and positive qualities in
our fellow man and in this world. Then we will not only attract people
of quality into our lives but we will be participating in the
manifestation of more goodness and quality in mankind. When enough
people on this planet realize this, then and only then can our world be

“What we wish for our brother, we wish for ourselves.”
