Power of Helpful Thought
“The corner-stone in the power and charm of a persons thought is this, expressed in words, ‘I want to help you in whatever way I can. I want to help build you up. I want to help you to better health, to better business, to the place where you really belong, to the position where your talents may most shine.’ If this thought is sincere, it carries immense power. It will always be drawing more power to you, because every additional person’s goodwill you so draw and fasten to you is an additional unseen rill of life feeding yours. It is a rill of substance, thought unseen, as real as the elements we do see. Goodwill of others is constructive thought. It helps build ua up. It is good for your body. … It is the real ‘elixir of life.’ The more of such thought you attract to you, the more life you will have. …
“ if you send out a contrary order of thought, you draw to you from them the poisonous ans destructive elements.These will hurt your body. Persons in this way are literally hated to death. The ill-will of many people fixed on one man can injure that man’s health. It has killed many. It can injure no one if they oppose it with the thought of goodwill.” ~Prentice Mulford

This turns us into a race of hypocrites. What should be done is for each of us to examine our negative thinking and try to correct it so our thoughts will be just as positive as our words. That is what the power of helpful thought is all about. Continue reading “Power of Helpful Thought for Good”
