MIRROR FIVE: JUMPING TO
When a negative mind with a negative operating system comes
under pressure, it starts acting as if it has special powers
that enable it to predict the future and even see into the minds
of other people.
This aberration of
thought makes you believe that you can tell ahead of time what
is going to happen in your life, and you also believe you can
tell what other people are thinking.
If you examine the ability of the negative
mind to look into the future and to read the thoughts of other
people, you will not be impressed with its track record. A
negative operating system does an excellent job of jumping to
conclusions, and those conclusions are consistently negative and
When a negative operating system starts
talking, it's time to evaluate the message. If it starts
talking about the future, or about what other people are
thinking, you would be well advised to ignore what it's saying.
That's not to say that when a negative operating system jumps to
conclusions it's wrong one-hundred percent of the time.
Even a stopped clock is right twice a day. What it means
is you should go with the probabilities and ignore the negative
inner voice when it starts jumping to conclusions.
After practicing medicine for more than
thirty years, I have never met a person who could accurately
predict the future or read the minds of other people. It's
highly unlikely you will be the first person who suddenly
develops this power.
It's impossible to predict the future, and
even if you could, it wouldn't be desirable. When I nearly
died after a car accident in New Zealand, I realized that God in
his mercy made it impossible for us to know our future.
That's the only way we could enjoy our life. The reason is
simple. I had just spent six of the best months of my life
sailing across the Pacific Ocean with my family. We had
been to the Galapagos, the Tuamoto Archipelagos, the Marquesas,
Tahiti, Bora Bora, Samoa, Tonga, Fiji, and New Zealand. If
I had know the future ahead of time, all of those enjoyable
moments would have been eclipsed by the countdown to the
disaster awaiting in New Zealand. I am glad I don't know
the future. I don't want to know it, and if you are smart,
you won't want to know it either.
Jumping to conclusions and mind reading
have never worked in the past, don't work in the present, and
will not work in the future. Don't waste your time jumping
to conclusions or attempting to read the minds of other people.
Let the demolition derby continue. Smash, bash, and trash
this mirror and make your life better today.
