Negative conditions are not necessary!
You have every right to enjoy good health, happiness, financial plenty, and the very best of everything! It is absolutely not necessary for you to be unhappy or to be depressed. Neither is it necessary for you to feel disappointed, discouraged or to experience trouble.
It is not necessary for you to be unhealthy. You have positively no need to experience anything but outstanding success, radiantly good health, overflowing prosperity, and an enthusiastic interest and joy in living life fully. You should be positively alive!
Too many peoples’ lives are filled with bleak, depressing things, and this is truly unfortunate and needless. But many people assume that those things are inescapable or meant to be.
As long as anyone accepts negative conditions at their own value, so long will he or she stay enslaved to them. However, you need only to claim your birthright of freedom and make a positive effort and you will be free.
The key to better living: Get with God!
Happiness, success, good health, and prosperity are natural conditions. It is actually easier for you to demonstrate these conditions than the opposite. Inferior habits of thinking may obscure that fact for awhile, just as walking or sitting wrongly may seem easier than doing so properly, because you have become accustomed to that.
However, it is actually easier to do it rightly because you are then in harmony with the natural movement of Life. If you have ever waded in a stream moving against the current you now how difficult that can be. But when you turned around and moved with the current, it became easy to walk.
Frustration, depression, financial lack and unhappy human relationships are nothing more than bad habits which the sufferers have become used to and believe they must stoically endure. They believe those conditions are permanent, that there is no escape, that they must fight their way through life, but that is wrong thinking because there is a way out.
The way is to simply change the habit of wrong thinking to right thinking. It consists of moving with the natural flow of Life, and in working harmoniously with universal laws and principles rather than against them. This may be easier said than done because of a long-standing habit of wrong thinking; however, it can be done.
The key is in getting “with God” for it is “with God” that all things are possible. In getting “with God,” you are making of yourself a free and open channel through which Infinite Intelligence pours Its riches.
You needn’t accept something less
Some people have the idea that they must accept something less than God’s very best, or they have a distorted concept of what His best really is. That is wrong thinking. You never have to endure anything, especially doing without. You should never be willing to accept less than harmony, peace of mind, radiantly good health and overflowing abundance.
As the deserving child of God, that you truly are, it is divinely right that you should experience all of these things, to live just as elegantly and opulently ass possible. That’s the way God wants you to live.
Do something! – Take positive action!
Finally, it is only a wrong habit-a subtle one you may not even be aware of-that causes you to be satisfied with less. Granted, you may not be happy, but if you really did not want unhappy or unhealthy conditions in your life, if that is the way with you, then you would do something about them.
You would become very dissatisfied with the way things have been or may still be, and you would make a real determination-a definite commitment-to change things for the better and then get busy taking all the necessary steps toward that end.
Remember: With God all things are possible. So, get “with God.” This means to unify your thinking and feeling with God within yourself and let this be the motivating power to change your life for the better. By doing this one-day-at-a-time, for thirty days, or longer, will make a big difference.
