Om shanti. My thoughts don’t work by themselves automatically, but I pay a lot attention to creating the quality thoughts that I want. Sometimes we develop aches and pains all over our bodies, because of our thoughts. Some people feel so dependent that when somebody leaves them or somebody dies, they become trapped in waste thoughts, leading to one negative thought after another. Inside, we should have truth and non-violence, instead of falsehood and violence.
Understand that there are four types of thoughts: negative, waste, ordinary and positive.
- Negative thoughts drain our energy, bringing a loss to oneself and others.
- Waste thoughts are just a habit: being distracted, looking here and there, thinking about the past or the future. Waste thoughts are born from our own desires and attachments. Learn how to remain in the present moment. The past is the past and the future will be good.
- Ordinary thoughts are also habitual. They are not wasteful, but we’re not actually transforming anything.
- Positive thoughts are filled with so much power, and they emerge when you realise who you are and who you belong to. With that realisation and awareness, negative and waste thoughts finish. Don’t even think ordinary thoughts, but keep the aim of having elevated thoughts, a high quality of thoughts. When thoughts are pure and positive, that leads to peace and then to power.
A high quality of life means to look inside, turn your face towards God and say, “I want to be that high quality of human being, so that others in my life can take inspiration to become the same.” When I keep courage and receive help from the One up above, then things start to feel easy.
