As all the great thinking ‘Western World’ positive thinkers have said, focus on positive words and affirmations. One major thing was left out. ‘Emptying the mind’ even of ‘positive thinking’ which can be a ‘belief, and with ALL beliefs comes doubt’. If you ‘know’, belief is often unnecessary. No one, for example ‘believes in the sun as real’! You know! It can even be felt! Belief might even convince some that the moon is providing warmth. However, ‘beliefs’ are critical for our lives and humanity as a ‘step (hopefully)’ to knowing.
Positive thoughts are great, but the question is where do they come from? Thoughts are words. Words usually fall into perception or a belief in what they mean. Love is an overused word, but nice whatever value it has of course. I had the best mother I could imagine, but she never said ‘I love you’. Didn’t have to (neither did Dad)! Everything they did was beyond the necessity to ever say it. Words in a positive way, can be very comforting, but sometimes, we just know that nothing need be said. H-e-l-l-ooooooo!?
In the depths of an empty mind of words, even God, comes a bliss that needs no name, and certainly no belief. God is not going to recognize ‘its’ name because the real secret is hidden away inside your heart with ‘no mind’. Of course, god is everywhere The mind is good for practical uses in infinite ways. There is something magical in the wordless depths and heights of the feeling we call ‘love’. No one can stop that presence! Let yourself be taken over by it. Meditation is the door that opens the light of love deeper. Deep love is meditation, and it’s of yourself. Share it with someone else who reaches it within themselves and the secret to transforming the world is happening! That kind of coupling has world changing power! Mutual sex is great, but is not deep love. Deep mutual love is the highest form of meditation!
Once you’ve accepted your flaws, no one can use them against you. Sometime a flaw is a positive characteristic used to the disadvantage of what it’s used for. For example, a landlord accepts less payment because he feels the tenant needs more time, but it goes on month after month. Compassion becomes ‘enabling’ the renter and likely burdensome financially for the landlord as well as the mental discomfort it is likely to cause for both. Don’t think too much. You’ll create a problem that was never even there. Empty the mind of the unnecessary and fill the heart with the necessity of more love.
