Life is supposed to be fun! When you’re having fun, you feel great and you receive great things! When you take life too seriously, you receive serious things. Having fun brings the life you want, and taking things too seriously brings a life you have to take seriously. You have the power over your life, and you can use it to design your life in whatever way you want, but for your own sake, lighten up about bad feelings.
You can change anything in your life by changing how you feel. When you change how you feel about any subject, the subject must change! But in changing the way you feel, don’t try to get rid of bad feelings, because all bad feelings are simply a lack of love. Instead, you put love in! You don’t try to get rid of anger or sadness; anger and sadness are gone when you put love in. There is nothing to dig out of you. When you put love into you, all bad feelings are gone.
There is only one force in life and that force is love. You are either feeling good because you are full of love, or you are feeling bad because you are empty of love, but all your feelings are degrees of love.
Think of love as if it is water in a glass, and the glass is your body. When a glass has only a little water in it, it is empty of water. You can’t change the water level in the glass by waging war on the emptiness and trying to rip out the emptiness. The emptiness goes by filling the glass with water. When you have bad feelings, you are empty of love, and so when you put love into yourself, the bad feelings are gone.
Everything has its perfect place in life, including bad feelings. Without bad feelings, you would never know what it feels like to feel good. You would just feel the one “blah” feeling all the time because you would have nothing to compare your feelings to. You wouldn’t know what it feels like to feel really happy, excited, or joyful. It’s through feeling sadness that you know how good it feels to be happy. You can never remove bad feelings from life because they are a part of life, and without them, you wouldn’t have good feelings!
If you feel bad about having bad feelings, you are adding more power to your bad feelings. Not only will your bad feelings get worse, but you will increase the negativity you’re giving out. Now you understand that bad feelings don’t bring the life you want, which will make you more mindful not to let bad feelings take over you. You are in charge of your feelings, and so if you have a bad feeling sweeping over you, one way to discharge its energy is to lighten up!
So if you are feeling bad, don’t give that bad feeling more power by beating up on yourself that you feel bad. The idea is not to hate bad feelings but to deliberately choose good feelings, and choose them more often. When you resist bad feelings, they increase! The more you don’t want bad feelings, the more you increase them. The more you resist anything in life, the more you bring it to you. So don’t care about bad feelings if they come upon you. Don’t resist them at all, and then you take all the power out of them
