For Vs Against

[Image]Several years ago, when asked whether she would participate in an event that centered around the Vietnam War, Mother Teresa responded by saying, she would not be interested in marching against the war. However, she added, if you were to have an event marching for peace my attendance would be guaranteed. She understood the principle of 'for vs against', and mentally, how it effected the issues of the day.

You see, I believe that what your for strengthens your mental position, while what your against only serves to weaken that same position. Simply put, you may be against gaining weight or you may be for living a healthy lifestyle. Certainly the later forces a stronger mental position that, when acted upon, produces a more favorable outcome.

  • Thank you. I have spent too much time and effort fighting against this instead of freely dancing in the light. My day is greatly affected by how I am thinking. Fighting against an unseen enemy only seems to give it more power. Each day is mine and I can do with it as I wish.

  • I totally agree. It reminds me of a quote, "You don't have to guess what I'm against, if you know what I'm for". That is what the Parkinson's Movement is about. The focus is patient-driven and the ultimate result is a cure.
