I am often asked how to turn a negative thought into a positive reaction. Its easy and difficult at the same time depending on your perception and your perspective.
If, in the past you have practiced and have some skills of detachment then things will be a little easier.
Let’s take war for example. How can or why would you laugh at war?
War is, as we all know, a terrible thing; pain and suffering, death and destruction. To laugh at something like that may seem a little strange but by learning to laugh at something like war you are doing two things.
Firstly, everything in the infinite universe is energy, thoughts, matter, everything.
Laughter has a specific vibration which changes the feelings around it from negative to positive. If you feel bad and listen to laughter you will feel good. Its simple.
So laughter changes on a vibratory and energetic level the negativity of something like war, pain or suffering to an energetically positive vibration.
Now, it may not be possible to laugh at a specific act like someone dying in a war but once you learn to laugh for no reason you can laugh for any reason and laughing at something like that becomes possible. Even though it may make no difference to those left behind by laughing about (not AT) death it will make a change of energy on the planet none the less.
If you have not learned to laugh for no reason yet, at will, whenever you choose, you can still laugh at these so called, or perceived negative events by laughing at the stupidity of the event itself.
To do that all you need to do is imagine reality but not from the perspective of yourself or even your town or city or the like. Imagine yourself from the perspective of the solar system. A huge ball of flaming gas that at some point in the future will explode and disintergrate the planet anyway, and a number of planets spinning on thier respective axes rocketing through space around it and WE LIVE ON ONE OF THEM.
Once taken from that perspective, the stupidity of war becomes relevant and it becomes easy to laugh at. The laughter changes the energy of war and brings some form of balance (energetically) to what is otherwise a ridiculous predicament.
The second and possibly more important thing that laughing at something like that does is it changes the neurons within your brain to create more consciousness. Its like pruning the garden of your mind from a jungle to a manicured garden and that is a beautiful thing.
So go find something negative, hold it in your mind and laugh ABOUT it and change the negative energy to positive. If you can”t do that, find what is stupid about it and laugh at that.
