A friend wrote and asked, “Do you feel it would be wise to remove our savings from the bank until all of this mess with the government is over? Hubby worried about a run on the banks if the government is not funded…your spidey sense?” I wrote back that I didn’t know what was going on but that I did not feel in jeopardy. I briefly wondered if I should ask my partner what he thought, then I remembered that all that matters is what I myself believe and expect to happen. I remembered that when I really understand how I attract people, circumstances and events into my life, I don’t worry about stuff like this. If I dwell on problems and talk about them and theorize about them with pals, that keeps me feeling vulnerable, and that keeps me attracting more to feel insecure about. We will not eradicate the problems of this planet, but we can delete them from our own experience. We do that by taking our focus off what aggravates us and makes us feel insecure, and putting our focus on something that makes us have good feeling emotion.
Good feeling emotion is the vehicle that carries us from one pleasant experience to the next. I know that as long as I stay hopeful and helpful, somehow I will be fine. Somehow, no matter what happens with the economy or the government, I will be guided to find my way, I’ll be able to continue to make a good living and be surrounded by loving, caring friends. It has always been so and there is no reason to believe it will ever be otherwise. To those who say, “oh just watch out, remember the Alamo or the Holocaust,” I say, that is exactly the point. I take ZERO time to remember or contemplate anything I don’t want to experience, period. I don’t give thought-time to anything I’m not ready to live or relive. I don’t stroll down memory lane of the worst human tragedies, ever. It doesn’t serve my hopeful future to retell those stories. Good feeling emotion is the vehicle that carries us from one pleasant experience to the next. As long as I stay hopeful and helpful, somehow I will be guided to find my way. And so will you.
