Because the totality of ‘what IS’ evolves according to the movement of collective thought – whatever you perceive is your offering or ‘service’ to All. Your doing is only secondary – it’s a more reactionary thing – something you can’t help – it just emerges out of perception (which is the culmination of all experience up to the present moment).
Take a look at what you’re against, what you want to eliminate, what you are afraid of, etc.. These are the things the unconscious mind is amplifying in your perception.
No need to judge ‘negative’ thought, as that only adds frustrated feeling thoughts to your energy of awareness. Instead you’re invited to notice that whatever evoked the ‘negative’ thought has also caused you to imagine its opposite.
Now, you can relax and allow the movement of thought to lead your awareness toward the more uplifting feeling you have created in imagination; or you can make excuses as to why the more dense feeling thoughts (which you have also created in imagination) require your attention. Either way, You alone make the choice.
Even by just recognizing without judgment that a choice is being made, your energy of awareness is uplifted and emotional extremes are diffused. As you continue to so recognize, you will invariably become more aware of the choice that supports and uplifts your energy – until eventually there will be no need to choose.
In this way, the mind remains a tool for ‘feeling neutral’ calculations and storage of data, but creative direction is given over to the authority of the heart.
