In 1944 Johnny Mercer wrote for Bing Crosby….
You’ve got to ac-cent-tchu-ate the positive
E-lim-i-nate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don’t mess with Mr. In-between
It was an instant hit and everyone sang it.
Problem is that very few people truly understood it……
You see, being negative comes natural to people.
Yes, everyone is naturally negative!!
“Why is that?” you ask?
It’s because we are genetically engineered to be on high alert and to be planning for the next emergency!
In the wild (and until very, very recently) the next corner could easily have a wild bear or mountain lion or tiger waiting eagerly for the next unsuspecting meal to turn up….
For millions of years most of our lives have been short and our deaths distressing.
If it wasn’t a wild animal it was probably a violent competitor looking for their next meal, their next sex object or their next victim……life was fraught with danger.
That’s why our genes easily respond to any fearful situation by keenly focussing on every alarm and alert.
Which is why we are now programmed for the worst (and for many, are so easily programmed to obey every defensive initiative initiated by government, military or medical ‘authority’).
The answer is firstly to ask: “what part of me is engineered to focus on the negative?”
The answer is: our physical body.
Secondly you can ask….”what part of me is engineered to focus on the positive?”
The answer is: our spiritual body.
Our spiritual body – accessed from the heart via our mind and co-ordinated by Higher Consciousness – has no fear of the negative.
It is totally positive.
It is pure spirit, pure love, pure harmony, pure Oneness.
In Johnny Mercer’s song (and indeed throughout life) we are reminded:
You’ve got to spread joy up to the maximum
Bring gloom down to the minimum
And have faith……………………or pandemonium
Liable to walk upon the scene…….
The options seem simple enough: but, at least we have options!
We can either:
Follow our fearful body and live in fear and worry…..
Or have faith and follow our spiritual body and live in peace, love and harmony.
Two quick questions: what do you do to accentuate the positive?
How do you spread joy?
For me, sharing my articles is one way. Yes, it takes a lot of work and time…..but what else was I thinking of doing this life-time?
So…are you ready to be sensible and choose the positive?
Or are you enjoying the anxiety and apprehension too much?
We always have a choice.
