Staying Positive. By that I mean, “Authentically Positive.” Might that be one of your goals in this new year and decade?
As the founder of Energy Spirituality, I believe I can help.
By all means, let’s ennoble ourselves on today’s national holiday. Every year, I’m inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Often blogging about him directly. As with this MLK face reading article.
However, I’m going to do something different. In King’s honor, I’m aiming to publish 1 blog post a day for 5 days in a row. All those articles in honor of personal truth. Personal growth. Spiritual awakening. Integrity.
And all on the theme of how to stay authentically positive.
Staying Authentically What? Hmmmm.
Have you ever wished that you could feel more positive? Stay positive more often? Then this article series is for you.
Granted, positivity is hardly an original topic. Trying to be more positive? It’s been popular for a very long time.
For instance, ever hear of “The Power of Positive Thinking? Both popular and leading-edge, in the 1952! By now, Dr. Norman Vincent Peale’s beliefs are even more entrenched in Collective Consciousness.
In this series of posts, I’ll empower you as a “Truth Seeker.” Notice? Not “Positivity Seeker” but a “Truth Seeker.” Here’s why.
Attempting to Be Positive Can Be Tricky. Really Tricky.
Here’s a story to illustrate. Back in the day I went to a party with my friend Gladys. We had plenty of fun, except for talking with Joe. This guy annoyed both of us.
But why? This guy, Joe was like an announcer at our local news station on the radio: All news, all the time.
Only this guy’s version was more like All positivity, all the time.
Instead of impressing us, he was distressing us. Only Gladys and I couldn’t put our finger on why.
What was wrong. Not until, in the car, driving home, Gladys had an Aha! She told me:
You know that guy, Joe, at the party? Here’s the deal with him.
Joe acted like a birthday cake made out of poop. But decorated with beautiful frosting.
Poor guy, he was trying so hard to be positive. But he wasn’t feeling it. He was performing it.
Clearly, Aiming to Always Be Positive Can Backfire
Backfire how? Let me put the consequences of fake positivity… in a positive way:
- Would you like to pursue authentic personal growth?
- How about gaining true spiritual awakening? (Even Enlightenment!)
- Regarding your aura, would you like for it to stay lookin’ good?
Authentic positivity can protect your aura. Keep you learning and evolving.

Let’s Pause Here with this Part 1 of 5!!!!! Blog Posts
COMMENT away, Blog-Buddies. I’m sure you have plenty to say on this aspect of New Age Litany.
- Have you ever met somebody like Joe?
- Looking back, have you ever been kinda-sorta somebody like Joe?
- These days, do you even care if other people consider you “positive”?
- And do you think about your degree of positivity all day long? Like taking your emotional temperature?
