Why The Corona Virus Is Spreading
Energy flows where attention goes.
Anything we focus on we do create so if we are really angry for instants at a war that’s going on or strife or suffering we’re adding or energy to it
We’re pushing ourselves and all that only creates resistance. what you resist persists. The reason that what you resist persists is because if you’re resisting something you’re saying, “No I don’t want this thing because it makes me feel this way, the way I’m feeling right now.” So you’re just putting out this really strong emotion of, "Wow, I really don’t like this feeling," and it’s there and it just comes racing toward you.
The anti-war movement created more war. The anti-drug movement actually created more drugs. Because we’re focusing on what we don’t want---drugs.
How much sense does it make for us to get the problem all of the energy as opposed to focusing on trust love living in abundance, education, peace?
Mother Teresa was brilliant she said, "I’ll never attend an anti-war rally." She said if you have a peace rally, invite me you know she knew. She understood the secret. I mean look at what she was able to manifest in the world.
So if you’re antiwar be pro peace. If you’re anti-hunger be pro people having more than enough to eat. If you’re anti-a particular politician be pro his opponent. Often elections are tipped in the favor of the person that people are really against because he’s getting all the energy and all the focus.
You want to focus on what you want not what you don’t want. It’s OK to notice what you don’t want because that gives you contrast to say, “well this is what I do want.” But the fact is the more you talk about what you don’t want, talk about how bad it is, read about all of that all the time and then say, “oh how terrible it is, “well you’re creating more of that.
You know so many times people say to me, quotations “well, James I have to be informed.” Maybe you have to be informed but you don’t have to be inundated.
I always say when the voice and the vision on the inside become more profound and more clear and loud than the opinions on the outside; you've mastered your life.
Learn to become still, take your attention away from what you don’t want and all the emotional charge around it, and place the attention on what you wish to experience. Energy flows where attention goes.
