Continuing from my last post about getting back to the basic of a worshipper. Here is an interesting article in The Straits Times, Singapore that caught my attention:

The article said -

Church Ps Will Bowen tries not to complain. He wants everyone else to stop carping, too - all six billion of us on the planet.

Last July, the 47-year old American challenged worshippers at Christ Church Unity in Kansas City to quit complaining as a way to bring more prosperity into their lives.

"Complaining draws all of its essence from negativity," he says.

"You're sending out this vibrational energy into the universe that you're a victim, and the universe responds with more negativity."

In a new spin on positive thinking, he handed out about 250 purple bracelets to members of his congregation after the sermon, challenging them to use the bracelets to remind themselves to stop complaining for 21 days. That is how long it takes to break habits, he said.

If they failed, they were to switch the bracelet to the other wrist and start over.

But even Mr. Bowen - a so-called "positive minister guy" - found it a tough challenge. It took him nearly three months to succeed.

The champaign has since been taken up by US schools, prisons and homeless shelters and has even attracted worldwide attention, said Mr. Bowen.

Volunteers have also received orders from more than four million bracelets since Mr. Bowen's March appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show.

What a wonderful way to quit this negative habit? I have personally requested for the the Complaint Free Bracelet but have yet to receive them. To date they have already sent more than 5.9 millions bracelets!

The very opposite of THANKSGIVING IS COMPLAINING ... please read my previous post about Replacing Spirit Of Grumbling With The Spirit OF Thanksgiving in 9 June 2006.
