The Problem with Hope.
“I hope I can get that new car.” “I hope everything will be okay.” “I hope to see you soon.” “I hope…that I can stop generating negative energy.” Hope. Hope is all you have left when it is the bottom of the ninth inning, you have no runners on base, there are two outs and two strikes and you are losing twelve to zip.
Hope is what you have left when the cities are in ruins and the countryside is one, massive, fire storm. Hope is what you fall back upon when you have given up. Hope is a negative term and is surrounded by negative energy. Hope means there is no longer any way a bad situation can get better without an outright miracle.
Sometimes a Substitution can Change the Energy.
Hope is a word often substituted for “Well, I could work to make something happen, but if I hope it happens, that is good enough.” I do not use the word “hope” in my vocabulary, unless I am intentionally inserting it into the conversation. So what word do I use?
I trust we will come back and win. If we don’t, we will win tomorrow. Trusting is positive. Trusting is to believe.” I trust I will see you again soon…vs. I hope I will see you again soon.” If I want to see that person, I trust I will be able to make it happen. Seeing someone again should not be left to wishes or hopes.
Hope is much like a wish.” I trust everything is going to work out fine!” I trust, therefore I believe, and belief generates positive thoughts which then emit positive energy. Draw the good to you with positive energy. Draw the good to you with trust.
Let’s Avoid Confusion.
The term “trust,” as I use it here, is not to be confused with trusting someone. Numerous variables come into play in those situations, which I discuss in another posting. Stop using the word “hope” and replace it with the word “trust.” Feel the difference.
Create more positive energy around you. Make a difference. Be the difference! Let’s discuss this!
