"We're beginning to come together now. Down deep in our hearts, we know that we don't want to fight with each other anymore. We're all looking for something new...something that works." "I'll give you another example, Liz." "Suppose you go into a pizza parlor and order your pizza at the counter. They give you a cold drink, point you toward a red-colored table, and tell you that your pizza will be ready in twenty minutes. You go sit down and wait. While your're waiting, you do not ponder and worry about whether they'll get the pizza right. You've ordered mushrooms, bell peppers, and extra cheese. You don't concern yourself with the possibility that maybe they'll accidentally put on some black olives or onions. You don't worry that they might burn the crust, or, worse yet, put on some of those nasty anchovies that make you so sick to your stomach. You just trust that the lady who took your order will make sure it's correct. If there is some problem, the pizza lady will take it back and have it fixed according to your exact instructions. The pizza place wants you to be happy. They're not out to get you. They want you to keep coming back for more. "Likewise, the Universe desires to be our friend. It is we who sit and dwell on anchovies and burnt crust. We bring these undesired things to ourselves. Remember, we said that what we think creates our experiences. And so, if we worry about worse-scene scenerios, those things tend to come to us. It is not a wise idea to draw unhappy, stressful experiences into our lives, but that is surely what we do when we get to worrying about things. "If we concentrate our thoughts on problems, that's what we'll get. Or, if we concentrate our thoughts on beneficence, that's what we'll get. Whatever it is that we concentrate our thoughts on, that's what we'll get. "So, we can change our attitudes. Instead of envisioning burnt crust and anchovies, we can think of the best pizza we ever tasted while we wait. "Sound's good, doesn't it?"
