Creating Vacuums

Eliminating the Negative by Accentuating the Positive

By Mary Grace Musuneggi 
Have you ever noticed that life is much easier when you understand, accept, and follow the universal laws of nature? Those who resist or ignore these simple rules that govern the world around us seem to find their lives in upheaval, as do those who resist or break our man-made laws.

By the laws of nature, I mean those universal rules that were taught to you by your parents, ministers, or teachers. You know – you reap what you sow. Ask and you shall receive. Two things can’t exist in the same space at the same time. Nature hates a vacuum. And so many more.

But how do you apply these laws to your everyday life? Very simply – if you want good in your life, you need to do good. If you want a happy, prosperous life, you need to sow happiness and seek prosperity. What you ask of the world, it will give you. If you desire less, you will receive less. If you expect the worst, life will live up to your expectations. Have you every realized that F.E.A.R. (False Expectations Appearing Real) can be a self-fulfilling prophecy? And since two things cannot exist in the same space at the same time, if you fill your life space with negative talk, unhappy thoughts, and self-destructive behavior, there is no room for the positive, the beautiful, or the abundance that exist in the world.

But if you remove anything that does not bring joy and pleasure to your life, from ill-fitting clothes to bad relationships, you make room for something new and beautiful to take its place.

Current events and home quarantine have given many of us the opportunity to take some time to look around our world and review everything from our home furnishings and clothes closets to our friendships, our work environment, and our finances. So, create vacuums by eliminating anything that stands in the way of you being happy. Ask the world only for good things, and let good things come into and fill those spaces you create. Sow the seeds of prosperity, and good things will come.

Someone once said, “You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” Create vacuums and make your one life all you want it to be.
