HOLY HERETIC DEVOTIONAL-Dec. 19, 2016-THERE WAS NO ROOM FOR THEM IN THE INN
Compiled by Mercy Junction Justice and Peace Center Assistant Director, Reiki Master, and Psychic Kali Meister
“All strange and terrible events are welcome, but comforts we despise.”
What would happen if instead of being nihilists we expected the best for ourselves?
When we expect the worst we don’t do ourselves any favors. So why do we persist in this habit? For one thing, expecting the worst is a way to cushion ourselves emotionally—we’re trying to soften the blow if things go wrong. Think of the popular saying, “If you expect the worst, you’ll never be disappointed.”
The truth is that this philosophy denys self the opportunity to improve through chance, or even calculated risk.
Every time a thought that produces a negative emotion pops into your head, contemplate the origin of this thought and question the validity of it. Remember that beliefs are nothing more than repeated thoughts, so question your beliefs as well.
