Shalom Brothers and Sisters as we are in our 40 Day Dedication: Purification of the Mind, we must keep our thoughts pure and positive. By staying away from Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, television, worldly music, etc. we are blocking negativity from entering our minds. We must also purge all of the negative and worldly thoughts in our minds. Now I know that we cannot control those around us such as people at work or people we may come into contact with while we are out and about. What we can control is how we let their words or actions affect us and how we react. We must keep positive thoughts and actions flowing. For certain individuals you are going to have to politely walk away or simply smile, nod and keep it moving. Do not allow yourself to be sucked into anything negative. If you find negativity transferring over to you breath and pray. Get yourself back into a peaceful and positive mood. A great thing to do is pray before you go anywhere, pray before you enter anywhere, etc. Something that helps me is praying away all negativity from within me and around me, from within and around those I come into contact with and whoever they come in contact with, from all building I enter and exit, etc. I have found this to be extremely helpful. With you keeping your thoughts positive and pure, you can actually project that onto others around you and they can start to become more positive. We have too much negativity and too many negative people in this world. It is time to reverse the negativity and bring forth light, love and positivity.
And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
