"For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world." 1 John 2:16
Being "positive" is the praxis (social action) of 'justifying' your "self," i.e., 'justifying' the child's carnal nature in you, i.e., "human nature," i.e., your"lust" for ("lusting" after) the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' (dopamine emancipation) which the world stimulates (including the pleasure which comes from being affirmed by others, i.e., with others 'justifying' your carnal desires of the 'moment,' i.e., your "self interest"—which is not only intoxicating but addictive and possessive as well, i.e., why people get "hooked on," i.e., addicted to being "positive"). Being "positive" is antithetical to being "negative" which comes from accepting, believing in, supporting, and promoting the father's/Father's authority, which requires the child (you) to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline his "self" in order (as in "old" world order) to do right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth—doing the father's/Father's will—thereby restraining the child, i.e., encouraging the child to restrain his "self," in order to become mature, with the child's conscience (which the father's/Father's authority engenders) inhibiting or blocking him from enjoying the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' (dopamine emancipation) which the world stimulates, when it would be wrong, i.e., a sin for him to do so.
"To enjoy the present reconciles us to the actual." (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's 'Philosophy of Right') If "lusting" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment,' which the world stimulates is the standard for "good" then doing the father's/Father's will becomes "evil." There is a direct correlation. You can not have the one without the other. You can not love the world (pleasure) without hating the father/Father (restraint)—its "human nature."
"No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon." Luke 16:13
The "new" world order is based upon 'liberating' the child's carnal nature (your "self") from the father's/Father's authority, i.e., through dialogue (there is no father's/Father's authority in dialogue, only the child's carnal desires, i.e., your "self interest"—and hate of restraint) negating the father's/Father's authority in the thoughts and actions ("theory and practice") of the next generation, negating the guilty conscience for doing wrong, disobeying, sinning ("lusting") in the process (called the negation of negation), so all children (including you) can do wrong, disobey, sin ("lust") with impunity. The next time someone tells you to "be positive and not negative" you now know what they are asking, i.e., demanding of you.
"Prior to therapy the person is prone to ask himself, 'What would my parents want me to do?' During the process of therapy the individual come to ask himself, 'What does it mean to me?'" (Carl Rogers, on becoming a person: A Therapist View of Psychotherapy)
"There are many stories of the conflict and tension that these new practices are producing between parents and children." (David Krathwohl, Benjamin S. Bloom, Taxonomy of Educational Objectives Book 2: Affective Domain)
It is in the praxis of psychologists, psychotherapists, facilitators of 'change,' Transformational Marxists (all being the same in method or formula: dialoguing opinions to a consensus)—who, as charlatans, pimps, and pedophiles seduce, deceive, and manipulate men, women, and children (all who come before them), turning them into chickens, rats, and dogs so they can be used by them, as "human resource," for their own pleasure, i.e., so they can buy and sell them (their souls) for their own gain (profit)—that "positive" negates the "negative," i.e., that the child's carnal nature negates the father's/Father's authority, so that all children (including the psychologist, psychotherapist, facilitator of 'change,' Transformational Marxist) can do wrong, disobey, sin ("lust") with impunity, i.e., so that everyone can do wrong, disobey, sin ("lust") without having a guilty conscience. It is what the "group grade," "safe zone/space/place," soviet, brainwashing classroom (public, private, and "Christian" education, including the home school—and the "youth group" and "Bible study" in the contemporary "church") is all about—all using "Bloom's Taxonomies" (the affective domain), i.e., dialogue in order to 'liberate' the child from the father's/Father's authority. It is what Immanuel Kant, along with Georg Hegel, Karl Marx, and Sigmund Freud, had in mind.
"The heart is deceitful above all things [thinking pleasure is the standard for "good" instead of doing the Father's will, i.e., having to set aside pleasure, i.e., having to humble, deny, die to "self" in order to do God the Father's will, i.e., in order to do right and not wrong according the Father's commands, rules, facts, and truth], and desperately wicked [hating God the Father and His authority which "gets in the way," i.e. which prevents, i.e., inhibits or blocks it from enjoying the carnal pleasures of the 'moment'—which the world stimulates]: who can know it?" Jeremiah 17:9 You, as a child of disobedience, i.e., using dialectic 'reasoning ('reasoning' from your "feelings"), i.e., through dialoguing with others 'justifying' your "self," can not see your hatred toward God the Father as being evil because your love of "self," i.e., your love of ("lust" for) pleasure—which the world stimulates—is "in the way," blinding you to the truth of the deceitfulness and wickedness of your heart.
Karl Marx is in the heart of the child (your heart). If the child does not learn to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline his "self," doing the father's/Father's will, Karl Marx will rule the world. That is what is happening today—with people telling you to be "positive" (to get in touch with "the your child within") and not "negative" (to quite being prejudiced, judgmental, like your father/Father insisting upon everyone doing right and not wrong according to his, now your, commands, rules, facts, and truth, making people "feel" bad about their "self," i.e., feel guilty for their doing wrong, disobeying, sinning, i.e., "lusting").
"If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him." 1 John 2: 16, 15
It is not that the father/Father does not love the child. It is that he does not love what the child does when he does wrong, disobeys, sins, correcting, reproving, chastening him that he might learn to humble, deny, die to, control, discipline his "self" in order to do right, obey, not sin, receiving the father's/Father's blessing (inheritance) in the process (as a result). On the other hand, the child (the Karl Marx inside you), loving ("lusting" after) the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates can not separate his hate of missing out on the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates and his hate of the father/Father, i.e., the father's/Father's authority (restraint) which gets in the way.
Those who insist upon you being "positive" establish the carnal nature of the child over and therefore against the father's/Father's authority. Their agenda is to draw you into dialogue, i.e., into dialoging your opinion with them in order to arrive at a consensus, affirming the carnal nature of the child, i.e., their "lusts," thereby negating the father's/Father's authority in establishing right and wrong, negating the guilty conscience, which the father's/Father's authority engenders, in the process. Therefore, according to those who are "positive," those who are "negative" are those who demand that you do right and not wrong according to established commands, rules, facts, and truth (which, to the child's, i.e., your carnal nature is "negative"), i.e., who 1) preach commands and rules to be obeyed (as given), teach facts and truth to be accepted as is (by faith), and discuss with you any questions you might have regarding their commands, rules, facts, and truth (at their discretion—providing they have time, you are able to understand, and you are not questioning, challenging, defying, disregarding, attacking their authority), 2) reward or bless you when you do right, obey, do not sin, 3) chasten you when you do wrong, disobey, sin (that you, humbling, denying, dying to, controlling, disciplining your "self," might do right, obey, not sin), and (hopefully not) 4) cast you out if you question, challenge, defy, disregard, attack their authority (in order to retain their authority). Those who are "positive" are using the formula or method of Genesis 3:1-6, negating Hebrews 12:5-11 in order to negate Romans 7:14-25 (which Hebrews 12:2-11 engenders) so they can do wrong, disobey, sin ("lust" after the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates) with immunity—dying in their sins (wanting you to join them, spending eternity in the lake of fire that is never quenched—there will be no pleasure, i.e., no dopamine emancipation there).

"And for this cause [because men, as "children of disobedience," 'justify' their "self," i.e., through dialogue 'justify' their love of "self" and the world, i.e., 'justify' their love of the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' ("lusts") which the world stimulates over and therefore against the Father's authority] God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie [that pleasure is the standard for "good" instead of doing the Father's will]: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth [in the Father and in His Son, Jesus Christ], but had pleasure in unrighteousness [in their "self" and the pleasures of the 'moment,' which the world stimulates]." 2 Thessalonians 2:11, 12
