Words, Thoughts and Emotions – Evil or Good?

Two Wolves with Yin Yang

Words, Thoughts and Emotions – Evil or Good?

What you think about expands. Your thoughts, your words, what you watch, and what you listen to, all feed your spirit in one way or another. If you feed your spirit negative, low energy thoughts, you are weakening yourself and your vital energy. If you feed your spirit positive, high energy thoughts, you are strengthening your spirit, mind and body.

A good analogy of this universal truth is found in the body itself. If you feed your body junk food, lots of sugar, overindulge in alcohol, do drugs, smoke, etc., then your body will get weaker, develop disease, and eventually stop working properly.

On the other hand, if you feed your body a diet of good, healthy, nutritious food, your body will function properly, you will have good health, and your energy level will be good. The choice is up to you. Will you develop healthy habits for your body or will you just roll the dice and give it no thought?

Here you may be thinking, “Yeah, but I know Jack, and he is 90 years old, has been drinking and smoking since he was a kid, eats terrible, doesn’t exercise, and doesn’t care.” Of course, there are exceptions to this rule, but in general, your body responds to the fuel that you provide it.

Again, you may argue, “Well, I have been eating fast foods, drinking, smoking, and not exercising, and it hasn’t hurt me.” Here you would be wrong. Just because you haven’t seen the affects of your actions yet, doesn’t mean that your actions are not affecting you. Your thoughts, words and emotions work in the same fashion.

You do not instantly see the effects of your thoughts and words, just as you  do not instantly have a heart attack the second you eat some very fatty, artery-clogging food. The effects of your thoughts, words and emotions are accumulative. But have no doubt, they are having an affect on your life. You are feeding your spirit throughout the day, and it is either growing stronger or weaker, depending on what quality thoughts and words you are feeding it, and what emotions you allow to dominate your mind.

Thoughts such as anger, guilt, resentment, revenge, envy, etc., are all low energy thoughts and weaken you. Whereas, thoughts such as love, kindness, peace, joy, hope, compassion, generosity, etc. are high energy thoughts which strengthen and nourish your mind, body and spirit. They will bring happiness to your life, where low energy thoughts will bring you stress and keep you unhappy.

It is actually just as important, if not more so, to feed your spirit good “food” as it is to feed your body good food. Monitor your thoughts and your speech. Don’t leave this part of your life to chance anymore than you leave the health of your body to chance. Both are have their consequences, even if you don’t immediately see them.
