Miracles are not in contradiction to nature. They are only in contradiction with what we know of nature.

Take the energy

Do not continue to provide more energy to your fears. Instead, take the energy from your fears and turn it toward positive purpose.

There is nothing to be gained by giving additional energy to your anger. Take the energy from your anger, and direct it toward creative, fulfilling action.

Whatever you focus upon, whether it is positive or negative, you provide with additional energy. Whether you love it or hate it, whether you long for it or fear it, your focus and attention will make it more powerful in your life.

There can be large amounts of energy in your fears, your angers, and your frustrations. The thing to do with all that negative energy is not to add to it, but to apply it toward your most positive purposes and most treasured desires.

If you truly wish to avoid something, be careful not to nourish it with your focus and your energy. Find something else to move toward, and keep that positive goal at the center of your awareness.

In each moment, you can choose where to focus your attention and your energy. Seek to keep your focus as positive as possible, and you’ll move steadily in the direction of your dreams.

— Ralph Marston
