Don’t Fight It

When you fight against something negative, you use most of your energy just to stay even. There is little, if any, remaining to help you get ahead. Even if you win, you lose.

Instead, work to re-direct negative energy and influences into a positive direction. It is not as difficult as it sounds. Love and hate are just across the border from each other. Anger and inspiration are separated by a thin line.

The same raw energy creates sadness as well as joyful bliss. Just as electricity can be used to make a room very warm or very cold, so too can the energy of life be used to manifest seemingly “opposite” results.

The energy is there. And it is up to you to decide what it will become. Don’t fight it. Accept it, and find a way to use it.

— Ralph Marston
