I recently met a new friend on Facebook. Her name is Yanik Falardeau. You can see her art Facebook page, here. She and I seem to have connected on a spiritual level. We seem to share many of the same beliefs.
She recently posted this quote from Harvey Fierstein, an American playwright and actor.
I love this quote, it sums up how I feel.
I do believe we are all connected;
I do believe in positive energy;
I do believe in the power of prayer;
I do believe in putting good out into the world. And I believe in taking care of each other.
In physics there is an explanation for how matter is all connected together. Spiritually, I have always believed that we are all connected. I believe that when one of us throws a pebble in the water, it can turn into a tidal wave in someone else’s life. We can do this either by an action or our words.
That is why I believe very strongly in staying positive, no matter what. It can be a hard thing to do, stay positive. I used to be a very negative person. But since my early 30’s, I have been practicing being positive. I am very careful about the words I use. I watch closely how I say things. I don’t want to contribute negative or hurt in any way out in the world or in my own life.
I really believe that what we say and how we act, is what will show up in our lives. After practicing being positive for over 30 years, I can assure you that it works. I’ve had huge challenges in my life because of fibromyalgia, but I’ve managed to come out the other side of these challenges. My life is not what I dreamed, but I do believe it is a wonderful life that
To sum up, I believe exactly what Harvey said above. That there is a God, that this God connects us all together, and that what I do with my connection to you, can have an affect whether I intend this affect or not.
The art is a fish from one of my Sea Life paintings.
Wow, that was just what I needed to hear today, a reminder about being positive. I agree, and love the quote. I am challenged with illness also, and I think I feel a lot better when I practice being positive. I love the fish, too 🙂
Hi Leigh, I’m late in replying to you. I’ve been busy with a sunset that has been driving me crazy. Yes, positive. It is so important, especially for us facing these physical challenges. I believe positive thoughts can help us heal.
That’s a very inspirational quote! It’s what I believe, at least most of the time. Sometimes the feelings of separation and negativity take over. Every time this happens I’m very thankful for positive people like you to through me a line to pull me back into the positive. 🙂
Thanks, Trisha. That’s the whole idea of staying positive because it really does affect others. I’m glad I was helpful to you. Others have been helpful to me. I find that what goes around comes around when we really need it.
WOW!! Thanks for sharing! You’re right. It is so easy to be negative, but when you are positive you begin to see life’s blessings so that you can in turn bless the lives of others.
Thanks for reading the blog. You’re right too. Negative can just overtake me. Take care.
I really love the fish it is really pretty I love the colours 🙂 positive ways and thoughts are a good habit and the pebble in water analogy great, food for thought xx
Thanks for your comments.
