The Lies of Positive Thinking

Written by Mathew Naismith

This is another interesting read on positive thinking that was sent to me.

Why “positive thinking” won’t help you out

Osho: “The philosophy of positive thinking means being untruthful; it means being dishonest. It means seeing a certain thing and yet denying what you have seen; it means deceiving yourself and others.”

Henry Ford: But Henry Ford’s logic was clear.
"No. I do not believe in any philosophy of positive thinking."

Consider this; the more positive you are, the more negative everything is that isn't positive to the same level or degree. In actuality, excess passivity creates more negatives, not less; this is another reason why many ancient teachings teach balance. Of course, a true sense of balance isn't the balance of excesses but of moderation, this means there is less of a difference between positive and negative. Within this, neither creates an opposing extreme to itself thus in turn creating less negativity/positively.

Positive thinking is also in line with love and light, how many more negatives are created through excessive perceptions of love and light? How many more people do people of love and light judge as being negative compared to themselves? Considering love and light is based on positive thinking to oppose negative thinking, the dark, it's quite understandable that love and light will create more negatives. This isn't saying that love and light is bad or negative, but love and light can create negatives or be destructive. However, if used in a balanced way, love and light is very constructive, this simply isn't presently occurring in my mind.

To my readers, anything that teaches excessiveness/extremism, avoid at all cost, one excess will always create an opposing excess to the same degree/level, it's wise to be aware of this. Instead, embrace teachings that teach balance and moderation. Even better, condition yourself to not judge everything as a positive or negative, as always considering our preconditioning, this is easier said than done but plausible. 

I keep receiving messages like this and channeled messages saying to moderate the way we use love and light and positive thinking, however, it would seem that we are simply not listening to the whispers. I don't think we should allow it to get to the stage we have to be yelled at though. People like me, and far wiser people like Osho, are the whisperers; please listen to the whisperers who express moderation and balance, the reality that will be created otherwise isn't worth experiencing in my mind.
