Negativity is negative

The Tanya in the twelfth chapter gives examples of transgression with thought:
As soon as there rises from his heart to his mind any animosity or hatred, Hashem forbid, or jealousy, anger or a grudge, and their like, he will bar them from his mind and will, refusing even to think of them. On the contrary, his mind will prevail over and dominate the feelings of his heart, to do the exact opposite of that which the heart desires, namely, to conduct himself toward his fellow with the quality of kindness and to display towards his fellow a disproportionate love.
