Here is an excerpt from my book, Seven Steps to Inner Power:
"Here, then, is some good news: Negative ideas are substantially unreal, like shadows. When you experience them, they are only pointing to a real idea you are not expressing. This means there is nothing standing in the way of your purity. Truly, there is only one reality, and you can make it your business to express it. You can fill the void of your negatives or anyone else’s by forming the positive idea.
Take greed, for example, clearly a negative condition that creates all kinds of harm. Greed is the absence of the knowledge that you have the power to create all that you need out of your own ideas. Greed is the absence of the knowledge that you are complete and whole. If you truly know that you can have what you think, that you can have all you need, that you are complete and whole, you do not feel greed.
Hate is the absence of love. Does that sound too simplistic? That thing you hate so much—isn’t it true that you hate it precisely because it falls so short of what you love? “I hate him” means “I love certain qualities he does not express.” But because you know that hating will only reinforce and perpetuate the negative condition, fill this negative void with loving energy that will recreate the picture.
Fear is the absence of power. Fill this void by knowing who you are in Truth."
