Dale is not correct. You are your mind. You are your body. You are your emotions. You are here in this physical plane for a reason. Don't imagine that you can or should negate this precious opportunity of experience. It will be over soon enough.
The Christ said that if you think it you have done it. What you do to one you do to all. You are one. The cultivation of positive thoughts is a constant and difficult (for me) process. Thank you for saying the positive overcomes the negative. This gives me strength.
