There is very deep wisdom on this quote related to manifestation and what you are attracting.
Particularly in something related to the fake positivity from the positive thinking school.
There’s no denying that you need to have a mind that is not holding yourself back. You don’t want to keep thinking negative thoughts about yourself, your life and so forth.
For that reason, positive thinking can’t be ignored and the contents of your thoughts are important to monitor and change.
If positive thinking is the only thing you do, you’ll be in for a world of disappointment. It’s simply not enough. The problem is that you’ll be thinking one thing while feeling another.
If your energy is negative, and/or you constantly feel negative emotions, then your thoughts will simply be overpowered by the constant negativity inside of you.
You are not just the content of your thoughts.
The content is important, but it’s not enough.
You can be thinking: “I’m happy and successful” but if all your surroundings and your internal landscape of energy are negative, not much will change.
The strongest feeling will rule the others.
That’s why you can’t think your way out of a heavy depression. It’s not just a matter of “thinking positively”.
Monitor and changing the contents of your thinking is a good first step – and a necessary one -, but more needs to be done.
Particularly if you keep reverting bad to negative thinking you know something else is at play. You know your energy, your mental state, and your emotions need to be handled.
Not just your thoughts.
In manifestation this is particularly relevant. As Neville said: “Assume the positive consciousness of the thing desired.”
It’s not just about the thoughts, not just about the emotions, not just about the energy, but everything combined.
That’s the secret!
