CHAPTER 10

Getting Along With Others

 Continues…..

Overcoming Negative Emotions

Have only love in your heart for others. The more you see the good in them, the more you will establish good in yourself. Hold the consciousness of good. The way to make people good is to see the good in them. Do not nag them. Remain calm, serene, always in command of yourself. You will then find out how easy it is to get along.

******

Cleanse your mind of all adverse criticism of others. Use a look or a hint to correct lovingly a receptive person, but o not force correction, and do not continue to hold critical thoughts, even though you remain silent.

******

Thoughts can sometimes be more effective than words. The human mind is the most powerful broadcasting machine there is. If you constantly broadcase positive thoughts with love, those thoughts will have an effect on others. (Similarly, if you broadcase jealousy or hatred, others receive those thoughts and respond accordingly.) Ask God to put His power behind your efforts. If, for instance, it is the husband that is going astray, the wife should pray to God: “Lord, help me to help my husband. Keep all taint of jealousy and resentment out of my heart. I only pray that  he realize his eror and change. Lord, be with him; and bless me that I do my part.” If your communion with God is deep, you will see that person change.
