Positive thinking=positive results

Friday, July 11, 2008

I still think there is an argument that explains peoplesÕ pessimism. It is Christianity. Even my team hinted of impending doom when our discussion two weeks ago focused on pollution and how dirty we have left our planet. Some might consider our poisoned planet as an indicator that in general, the human race is innately selfish (theologically speaking, sinful).

Some acts seem unforgiveable, but Christianity teaches me that for as ruthless or as thoughtless as I am, there is yet one individual soul who remains open to me, one who sees my abominations, yet still holds trust in me to offer exchanges of love and not to fear death. It is thus a challenge for me, then, to explore this capacity.

One of my favorite people was Carl Sagan. He often compared his understanding of the universe to religious concepts. Christian teachings make sense to me. I like to believe we have no choice but to have faith that Positive thinking =positive results.

    Hi, Prerie -

    This is an interesting post - and the germ of it has been occupying my heart and mind a lot. I have needed to make changes in my life to make room for positive thinking. I see daily ways that I haven't lived up to my goals, and yet I also have the hope to think I might eventually reach these goals. There is a passage in one of the epistles that says God is able to do more than we can ask or imagine. I have at times had a puny imagination. I want to change that in me.
