The other day I heard someone talk about the war on drugs. There are a lot of movements against things. World Organization Against Torture, Women Organized Against Rape, Students Against Drunk Driving, National Coalition Against Violent Athletes, the list is long.
Many think the only way to eliminate something is to work against it. This is far from correct. Your subconscious brings more of whatever your attention is on. When focused on a problem, you direct your subconscious toward it. It’s a spiral into more and more of what you don’t want.
The right way to correct a situation is to put your attention on the opposite. Instead of aligning with the war on drugs, join the Organization For Recovery. If you want to stop war, support the Organization for International Cooperation or the Veterans For Peace. If there isn’t an organization or movement to bring what you want, find some like-minded people and start one. When your attention is on the desired result, you work to create it.
