Positive vs. Negative Mind

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.  -Albert Einstein

Positive is just so natural when you feel the Sun hitting your face, hear the trees blowing in the wind, Wake up and take a breath to start the other day. Let go of the negative feeling and feel the positive all around you. Everything, whether tangible or intangible, in the manifested universe, has two poles – the positive and the negative. In nature, the positive is dominant and the negative is submissive. This means that the positive is directive and the negative is receptive, just as is the positive anode of a battery and its opposite, negative cathode. Philosophically and psychologically, what’s the difference between the positive vs. negative mind?

The difference between positive and negative is perception and choice. We have that choice each day to wake up to be positive or negative. the negative mind is mumbling around "it is impossible," but the positive mind is thriving to make impossible possible. The positive mind appreciates other's strength; the negative mind amplifies other's miner defect. The positive mind competes via uniqueness; the negative mind out beats others via unprofessionalism. The amount of energy expended for both is the same, but the results from the two are so different. The results from being positive are so much greater and provide greater benefits than being negative. If we look at it from this simple perspective, why would anyone choose to be negative? The subconscious deals with habitual acts that we do,  as a matter of habit like jumping out of the path of a herd of elephants charging towards you.  Psychologically, positive and negative, also depends on one's perception of a situation. In simple words when one accepts a situation; it helps to think positively regarding the next step as to what to do to manage the situation. Negative means helpless. Philosophically, positive thinking is something that occurs from experiencing something negative. Without the reference, we would not be able to compare one to the other. A frame of mind comes to thought, no positive, no negatives, not accepting the situation and worrying about without thinking of a solution.

Conscious vs. subconscious mind: The true potential of the subconscious mind may be limitless, but potential alone is more detrimental than useful when the programs carried out are negative. The second aspect of your consciousness is your conscious mind. It is also known as the objective mind or self-consciousness. It is the mind of your five senses, enabling you to consciously experience the physical world. Most importantly, it is that aspect of your mind that is able to reason. Given its capacity to reason and discriminate, your conscious mind has an incredibly important function. It is supposed to be the guardian at the door of your subconscious mind, ensuring that only wanted and empowering messages are allowed through. It is supposed to be the sole commander of your subconscious mind as it is only through the conscious mind that you can access the subconscious. 

To maintain "balance" conscious and subconscious minds have to harmoniously merge together. The conscious and subconscious minds are two different minds set up to do two different tasks the conscious mind has to be dominant, if they were harmoniously working together, that would be ideal to keep the mind positive. Only with the conscious mind in control do they function as they should. Consciousness is the very foundation of the most powerful resource you have at your disposal - your mind. It is the most familiar and yet most mysterious aspect of your life. Without it, you could not experience life. With it, you are eternal. The subconscious is an incredibly powerful program that runs every aspect of your life automatically. Simply put any thought, message or order that is given to the subconscious. The most important thing you must know is that it is subjective in nature. This means that it cannot reason or distinguish between positive and negative. Charles Haanel explains it this way in The Master Key System: "The subconscious mind does not engage in the process of proving. It relies upon the conscious mind to guard it against mistaken impressions. When the "watchman" is "off guard," or when its calm judgment is suspended, under a variety of circumstances, then the subconscious mind is unguarded and left open to suggestion from all sources." Only through a good balance of conscious and subconscious, the positive can be a dominant power to keep one energized.

Learn to abide by nature and let the positive dominate the negative. When it comes to human mindset, your conscious mind is the positive and your subconscious mind is negative, your inner mental image is the positive and your outer manifested universe is negative, and finally, your will is the positive and your desire is negative. This means that your conscious mind is intended to direct the messages passed to your subconscious mind for creation, your inner world mental images are intended to direct your outer world manifestations and not the other way round, and your will is intended to either direct and keep your heart's desire in place or consciously choose not to desire it anymore. When one does something consciously, he/she is in control and knows why it is done and one decides to do or not to do or do differently. One is aware of what he/she is doing. this is the ideal situation.

To be rounded in all areas of life, it's very necessary to remain focused, mindful of the present and consciously develop a profound spirit of appreciation. Then you feel everything taking its proper course and going into shape. The positive thinking is using the mind as an empowering agent to live one’s life as it shows up. Appreciation, gratitude, moving with change is what rounds you to be who you are and what you want to be in the most positive way.
