Wear gratitude like a cloak and it will feed every corner of your life.
Last few weeks, I bought this book to kill my negative thoughts and vibrations in my body. Too depress to go out. The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy (PhD). Berharga RM37.50. So far, I reach about 1/3 of the book. Banyak tips tips and explanation, but basically it is the tips on how to change our mindset to the positive one, so it becomes a new pattern and subsequently lead to a happy life in every aspects of life. Below is the excerpts I found good for us the childfree couple and also to everyone I think:
IDEAS TO REMEMBER:
- Be a mental engineer and use tried and proven techniques in building a grander and greater life
- Your desire is your prayer. Picture the fulfillment of your desire now and feel its reality, and you will experience the joy of the answered prayer.
- Desire to accomplish things the easy way - with the sure aid of mental science
- You can build your radiant health, success and happiness by the thoughts you think in the hidden studio of your mind
- Experiment scientifically until you personally prove that there is always a direct response from the Infinite Intelligence of your subconscious mind to your conscious thinking
- Feel the joy and restfulness in foreseeing the certain accomplishment of your desire. Any mental picture you have in your mind is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen
- A mental picture is worth a thousand words. Your subconscious will bring to pass any picture held in the mind backed by faith
- Avoid all effort of mental coercion in prayer. Get into a sleepy, drowsy state and lull yourself to sleep feeling and knowing your prayer is answered
- Remember that thankful heart is always close to the riches of the universe
- To affirm is to state that it is so, and as you maintain this attitude of mind as true, regardless of all evidence to the contrary, you will receive an answer to your prayer
- Generate waves of harmony, health and peace by thinking of the love and the glory of God
- What you decree and feel as true will come to pass. Decree harmony, health, peace and abundance.
Berkenaan Infinite Intelligence, ada sesetengah buku write as The Universe, ada juga The Infinite Power, and actually I wondered if this technique is Islam compliant and if it can be practiced by Muslim. The non-Muslim considered the highest power as Infinite Intelligence and The Universe, tapi kita sebagai Muslim, the highest power adalah dari Allah. So most of the teaching and tips in the book are actually very close-related with the teaching of Islam and Sunnah from Prophet Muhammad PBUH. In fact, the positive thinking actually adalah cabang konsep dari bersangka baik dengan Allah.
