a-z challenge N: 'no to negativity' + 'nourishment'

N: Saying no to negativity.

Negative people deplete your energy.
 Surround yourself with optimistic and positive people who add love and nourishment to the world.
(I wonder where they are? I did share sunrise on the clifftop to celebrate Easter)

 When you find yourself having a negative thought, simply say “next” and change your thoughts. 
(a very useful practice)

 What you think about you bring about so mind your thoughts carefully
(how much thinking do we have to do to bring about - this seems simplistic to me)

. Don’t let just anyone dump anything into your mental faculty, look for the positive in the world and more positive will show up.

 Here’s a hint – go on a one month media fast. No TV. No news. No radio.
(No- don't think I want to do that - it is more realistic to continue to be selective about what I read/listen to)

 Fill your time with reading books and listening to CD’s that bring about positive changes in the world.

Here is Deepak's audio, which  IMO comes into this category.

What inspires you?

The realization that there is a source of joy and happiness that is beyond the ego is a major step.
Then curiosity and an interest in how to reach spiritual goals arises
 Belief also arises, which is then bolstered by faith, and eventually by experience.

 Next follows the acquisition of instruction, information, and the practice of what has been learned.
 By invitation, the spiritual energy increases, followed by dedication and the willingness to surrender all obstacles.

Even the decision to turn one’s life over to God brings joy and gives life a whole new meaning.
 It becomes uplifting, and the greater context gives life more significance and reward.
 One eventually becomes unwilling to support negativity, within or without. 
This is not because it is wrong, but merely futile. Although the journey to God begins with failure and doubt, it progresses into certainty.
 The way is really quite simple.
Along the Path to Enlightenment. David Hawkins

N is for  Nourishing
The unified field nourishes everything in creation, from a tree to the movement of stars and galaxies, to the migration of birds, to the movement of our own immune system, to the digestive process that is taking place inside us, to the beating of our heart. 
All this is nourished.
 (lovely thought. How can I open to this nourishment more and more today. Universe please show me)

  1. I don't think media fast is a valid thing anymore - all it accomplishes is that it pisses off everyone around you. Being selective is probably the better option.
