About Me

My photo
I am a pastor and a clinical psychotherapist. My life's passion is defining healthiness from a human perspective and paralleling it to the holiness of God, divine perspective. Shifting perspectives creates a paradigm that is alongside of rather than over and against. The parakalein of God and the paradoxes of humanity are redefined. Humanity is all about winning and yet we are losing ground everywhere. Divinity is all about letting go of the desire to win and the fear of loss. The Divine embraces the world with loving care regardless of anything.

The Loss of Power to Negativity, the Power of Postivity

Posted by Don Paine

G K Chesterton was once asked what is wrong with the world, his response was simple,
"I am"
Sincerely G.K. Chesterton

Why is it that we the word negativity in negating way but
 we use far less often the word "positivity"in a positive way.

People deal too much with the negative, with what is wrong. Why not try and see positive things, to just touch those things and make them bloom?  -Thich Knat Hanh

While the disciples went off into negative judgment telling a group of people who were casting out demons in Jesus name to "Stop it" then proudly told Jesus what they had done, they got a surprise. Jesus said, "If they are not against us they are for us" 
-Mark 9;38-40

Why is there so much judgment in the world from Christians who know the truth?  I think because they have let there sense of they are right, create a lens of deception that results in mis perception and mis representation of the positive heart and life of Jesus.
