Different Thought Types

Negative Thoughts

Negative thoughts not only harm you but have an impact on others also. These thoughts disturb your peace and weaken your inner strength. If these thoughts occur on a regular basis, they can cause health problems, both physical and mental. They can even become destructive.

Negative thoughts are based on the five vices primarily – lust, anger, greed, ego, attachment. They are chiefly caused by selfish and harmful reasons, without taking into account the values and inner qualities of the person e.g.

* I think they should pay me more without having to do any more work to earn it (greed).

Negative thoughts also arise from unsatisfied expectations, in disagreements, in laziness, revenge, racism, jealousy, criticism, hate and an excess of power.
* My boss never appreciates my work but he always values my colleagues more (jealousy).

Waste Thoughts

Waste thoughts are thoughts that are produced at untimely moments that fill us with worry and anxiety when they appear in our minds. They have no constructive use. Unnecessary and useless thoughts are quick and repetitive which lead you nowhere. Often they refer to things from the past:
* If this hadn’t happened …
* Why did she have to say that to me?

Too many thoughts are about things that we cannot change, or worries about the future:
* What will happen tomorrow?
* How will it happen?
* What will I do if I find myself on my own?
* If I had been there at the time, this disaster would not have happened.
* If I had had this information at the time, I would have won the case.
* When I get the degree, I will be more respected by my superiors.

Your ability to concentrate is weakened by these useless thoughts. If you have a lot of these thoughts you use more energy and time to undertake each task. The origins of negativity also reside in them.

From the time that the past has already passed and the future is yet to come, these kinds of thoughts are not useful and they also weaken your inner strength and exhaust you. It is vital that we learn to avoid this pattern of thinking. In this way you will be more focused and your decision making capacity will improve.
Different Thought Types

By understanding each one of the thoughts that the mind creates we can keep the beneficial thoughts and discard those which are useless or harmful. Today we explain:

Necessary Thoughts

Necessary thoughts are those relating to your daily routine, such as,

* What am I going to have for dinner?
* What time am I picking up the children from school?
* What is the number of my bank account?
* What have I got to do today …. etc.?

They are also thoughts connected with your profession or job. These necessary thoughts related to your daily life come into your mind according to your responsibilities and needs at a more physical, material and professional level. When these thoughts are repeated over and over again, they become unnecessary or waste thoughts. KidSept2x1024

Thought Power – Mind Power

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.

Will Power

What is “Will Power”?

The expression “will-power” is often used to refer to our ability to put into practice the ideas we know to be for our well-being and to resist actions (“karmas”) which are harmful. This is directly related to the soul’s intellectual strength. When we speak of weakness or strength in the soul, we are referring to the intellect. In the case of a weak soul (one with lower “will-power”) it is almost as if the intellect plays no part in determining which thoughts arise in the mind, but they come as if pushed by the “sanskaras” (mainly in the form of habits) or are triggered by the atmosphere around or the moods of others. On the contrary, a powerful soul (one with higher “will-power”) enjoys the experience of its own choice regardless of external stimuli (influence).

Meditation develops the intellect to such an extent that this degree of control is possible. A practitioner of meditation can be in the midst of a situation of intense disturbance, yet remain so unshakeably calm that the inner strength becomes a shelter and inspiration to others lacking in that strength. The weak soul is like a leaf at the mercy of the storm, the strong one, a rock in the face of a rough sea.

If we have good will power, 50% of our problems will be solved including fast recovery from our sufferings.

The Mental Laws

Understanding The Mental Laws

The Law of Surrender

According to what or whom our mind thinks consistently of, we will take on the form of the object or the person to which we have surrendered. We can see this in children, when they transfer their minds to actors they see on television, and then begin to behave like them.

What is the highest form to which we can surrender our self? There may be several answers to this question in our mind. Choose the truth from among them. So what is the truth?

Spirituality gives us answers to questions like: Who am I? Who is the Supreme Being? What is my relationship with him? Where do I come from? Where am I going? What is the purpose of our existence? What is the importance of the present time? How can the Supreme Being empower us at the present time?

The answers to these questions show us the way to surrendering our mind to the Supreme Being, which is the highest entity to which we can surrender. When we do that, gradually we get colored by his knowledge, virtues and powers.

The Supreme Soul (GOD) is the most powerful & everything in the universe; everything else is temporary, including our so called beautiful body.

Fear is an experience where there is anxiety, inhibition (suppression) and mistrust. Fear can lead us to aggressiveness and pessimism (a negative mindset), to depression, to illness, to defeat, to a lack of meaning in existence and, eventually, to death.

When we do not have faith in our own capacity to resist pressure or difficulties, we feel insecure, and from insecurity the doors are opened for fears to enter. Sometimes, out of a lack of experience, self-knowledge or personal development, we are not aware of all the inner resources that we have. For example, if you do not trust your capacity to float in water, you drown. The body’s density allows it to float automatically. Through not believing it, not knowing, or even knowing, when you panic, your strength to resist is reduced, your breathing becomes shallow and you may drown.

We have many inner resources to be able to survive in times of crisis and many resources to live positively in times of change. We simply have to discover them, recognize them and use them with trust. Spirituality helps us in doing that.

Focused Thinking

Focused Thinking

Focus ! will work Miracles !


Only when we focus our energies can we expect results from our efforts. Focus comes from an acute awareness of “now or never”, that the opportunity only presents itself in a fraction of a second and that we have to remain very alert to catch it.

Focus means to be well aware of which direction we want to move in, but very often we have not even considered that when we start acting. By first deciding the direction, and having thought through what you want to achieve in the end, you are then able to pick out just a few of the actions, those that support that aim. You will then find that the effect is much greater with less use of our mental and physical energy.

An analogy (comparison) in this regard is the suns rays, when you focus them through a magnifying glass, they generate intense heat energy. Similarly when we focus our energies on a clear purpose, our life’s activities become filled with power.

Overcoming Obstacles

Overcoming Obstacles

As you see the world so the world will be for you. This is not a new wisdom (knowledge). It simply means that if you see people or situations as obstacles in life then that is how you are creating them within your minds. In truth, the real obstacle is your own perception (way of looking at it). To see an obstacle, which is to create an obstacle, is something you do when the way to what you want appears to be blocked.

Realization: Realize that obstacles do not come to obstruct, they come to instruct (teach a lesson). In the process of overcoming our obstacles, we learn, create and practice new strategies (techniques) to find a way round, over, under or through what we perceive as standing in our way. If we rise to that challenge we will be creative and learn much in the process.
