The Power of Positive and Negative

Our current understanding of the law of attraction, as it has been set forth for us, is that what we need to be doing to fulfill our lives is thinking positive, imagining ourselves in the place of our dreams, perhaps creating a vision board or two and not allowing ourselves to think or feel anything negative. In this way, we will, by the power of our positive thinking, magnetize those things, places, people, financial means, and events which are certain to fulfill us. But what do we mean by positive and negative? What is a positive thought? What is a positive feeling? What is a negative thought or feeling? What if our definition of positive isn’t really positive at all? And is it possible that through our decision to square off against so-called “negativity” that we are taking away a huge portion of our power? Tune in to find out.

Karma

Did I just hear that “Dun-Dun” that goes off whenever “Law and Order” comes on? We do get the two mixed up quite a bit—Karma and Law and Order. What’s been passed down to us is a definition of Karma that means that what goes around comes around. So, we can always say to that—expletives deleted—ex-husband or wife, “Yeah, well what goes around comes around!” believing with all of our hearts that they are going to get theirs. Right? And we can say to those selfish, close-minded whatever, whatever politicians that they are going to get theirs too. Then we can wash our hands of the whole affair and assume that in this lifetime or the next, or the next—justice will eventually be done. Dun-Dun! Law and Order. But what if Karma isn’t what goes around comes around? What if it doesn’t fall in that dualistic framework at all? What if the Law of Karma, gives us something much higher, much more powerful and soul-enhancing than Law and Order? Tune in to find out more.

How to have faith in mystery

We generally define faith as a kind of knowing—we believe strongly and therefore trust. Some of us were raised in traditional religious backgrounds in which that kind of faith was considered to be essential to our final post-life ascendance into heaven. And that kind of elegant influence has been around for so many centuries now that it is archetypal—it impacts us in deep unconscious ways that we may not even understand. Further, even when we begin to wonder if that definition of faith is really true, it still nags at us, as if that understanding of faith has somehow become cellular. Mostly this means that mystery has the power to shatter our grounding so that our first response to it is to try to define and explain it. But, what if we were to learn that it is leaning into the mystery that is actually faithful? What if we began to settle into the deeper regions of ourselves only when we can acknowledge what we don’t know? Tune in to learn how to have faith in mystery.
