Think about and do what you love as long as it is not destructive to you or other people. All happiness comes from love and all unhappiness comes from a lack of love. The problem is many people spend a lot of time thinking about things they don’t love and that kind of thinking causes a lot of pain. For example, some people think about how badly another person hurt them. Others think about how distasteful their job is-how much they lack love for their job. Others think about their problems—things they don’t love instead of thinking about the things they love.
If you use the word “love” in the most general form you see that love holds everything in the universe together. Attraction is another word for love. Protons in the nucleus of an atom are held together by a strong attractive force, even though they are positively charged and therefore repel each other. Love or attraction holds families together. Love holds companies together—people come to work because they like getting a paycheck.
When we think about and talk about the things we love, it brings more of those things into our lives. When we think about things we don’t like, it brings more bad into our lives. A couple of years ago I heard this for the first time and wasn’t sure it was true so I thought about it often and tested it out. I found that it is 100% true.
Why do our lives work this way? Some call it psychology and explain what is happening in our subconscious mind. See my article posted 9/12/12 for more information. Others call it the Law of Attraction. Some say it is just common sense.
Have you ever worked with a complainer? There have been times when I was in a good mood, but someone started complaining. I joined in and soon I was feeling gloomy. The opposite is true also, if someone talks about how good the company they work for is, others begin to see good things and feel a little happier.
The more you think and talk about only things you like or love, the happier and more successful you will be. Others will be attracted to you and like you much more than if you were negative.
To get rid of unhappiness or boredom, add love to your life. If you want to get rid of the air in a glass, you don’t hook up a vacuum pump to it because it will never pull all the air out of it. All you have to do is pour water into the glass. John chapter 7 says that love flows down from God like water to us and through us. When we allow ourselves to be filled with love and let it flow to others, we are happier. The Dead Sea is dead because nothing flows out of it, it is the same with people, we aren’t fully alive unless we love people, places, things, pets, etc.
Add love by thinking about things you like or love. Maybe you love sunrises, think about them. If you love a certain TV show, watch it. If you love your family, spend time with them. Love your cat, your dog, your sofa, your bed, or sitting under a tree and relaxing.
When I get unhappy about my job (or anything else) I say “I love my job” a number of times until I begin to feel love/like for my job. Try it, you’ll like it.
