® The mother-in-law is
negative to the daughter-in-law
® The opposition is negative
to the ruling party.
® A jealous rival is negative
® The bargaining customer is
negative to the store.
® In fact, the world and life
are full of negatives.
® Can the negative disappear, or become positive or can both become one
single harmonious Whole?
® Yes, it can, if the positive
can realise that it is the Whole that includes the negative.
® We accept a boss, in spite
of his bad temperament, when we see his indispensability for us, especially
when one temperament surfaces in him.
® That we feel his
indispensability is the irresistible link to the other side.
® Knowledge is his bad temperament is indispensable to us, to our
® A spendthrift comes to
Mother. Her atmosphere changes the consequences of his spending. He sees that
the occasions for him to waste are now less. Wherever he wastes money, he sees
a part goes into good use and even generates income.
® Extravagant waste is the other

® When Motherís consciousness
is fully accepted, his negative faculty becomes positive and his extravagance becomes an instrument of
enormous incoming money.
® The stingy, profit-seeking storeowner

takes on its character. Hence, we are positive or negative.
® When She comes in, She
compels us to be on the positive side.
® In a whole positive is what
we accept and negative is what we do not accept. She enables us to accept more.
® The Spirit rising from
inside accepts ALL and there is nothing left

® Using Her Presence inside, if we bring the Spirit to the surface, our
negative side disappears. As a strategy, it is the best.
® Sometimes more explanations
may be needed.
® When someone is deceitful,
it is obvious he is under an inner pressure to be deceitful. By recognising his
need, we sympathise with him. That gives an opening.
® We quickly recognise the
occasions in our speech, manners, tone, attitude, etc. which compels him to be
deceitful. As we recognise, so he too recognises. The whole atmosphere changes.
® By concentrating more on
Mother, without our noticing we become unsuspecting and generous. That brings
about a corresponding change in him.
® As you look at another
person if you look at your inner self as another person, the same change

® The extent of change becomes
greater by the width of our comprehension.
® To assume contradictions are
complements at one high end, we can practically concentrate on Mother, taking
the other manís point of view. It will
soon be clear that Negative is only an Attitude in us.
