It is what I say it is, and what I say is only for me.
The word 'energy' is a limit, and the word 'perception' is a filter.
It's harmless to imagine negative thoughts and never take negative actions as a result of those thoughts, this gives me unlimited potential to use my imagination as a tool to balance my positive physical experience with negative thoughts. I can think negative and experience positive, for balance.
Give away my self worth to an imaginary force that can save me, and make my life better, that's hope, so I move forward without distraction, ignoring critics who doubt and call me hopeless. With enough self confidence, hope becomes a curse word. Saying I know success, works better than hoping for it.
