Thought for the Day: Contrast

For every pleasing thing, there is an unpleasing counterpart, for within every particle of the Universe is that which is wanted as well as the lack of that which is wanted. When you focus upon an unwanted aspect of something in an effort to push it away from you, it only comes closer, because you get what you give your attention to whether it is something that you want or not. It is up to you to focus upon and attract what is wanted.

— Abraham

I like this for two reasons.

The first being that this reminds you not to give your attention to the unwanted aspects of life.

Why waste time and energy thinking about what is not working for you? It only serves to amplify the energy of what you do not want.

The other reason why I like this statement is because it reminds you of the duality of everything in the Universe. There is just as much good as bad all around us. What you see is determined by where you are focusing your attention. This contrast is a wonderful tool and really gives you an opportunity to get very clear on what you would rather have instead.

Take a minute and identify where you focus your attention.

Are you focusing on what you want or what you do not want?
