Should you avoid negative thoughts??

Imagine a nice day…it’s your day off…you are fully relaxed lying on the grass and gazing into a sky… with the sun playing hide and seek with the clouds. You are feeling so deeply relaxed listening to the birds chirping, the soft breeze brushing against you…And then pure magic happens…You see a beautiful, absolutely amazing cloud in the sky…It’s simply magical…the suns rays falling on it give it a mystic hue and you are completely mesmerized by it and in total awe…

You feel a very positive vibe and pluck that cloud out from the sky, so completely taken in by its positive demeanor …And suddenly from nowhere, the cloud explodes releasing all the lightning and thunder stored in it, leaving you completely shocked and you wake up with a jolt…

Existentially, the positive is contained in the negative and vice versa…They aren’t separate, as evident from the above example. What appears as two may be intrinsically one!!

However, bring the mind into this equation and the confusion arises…The mind is logic. It Survives between polarities… it can only understand polarities…the positive and the negative…

It needs them to exist as two distinct and separate entities for it to comprehend…It has to be “this or that”…and nothing else…Life though has its own ways…It absolutely loves to mix a bit of “this” AND a bit of “that” in varying proportions

One would do well to understand this characteristic and simply enjoy the show of the polarities, for one never knows what appears positive may not be truly positive and what appears negative may actually turn out positive…

One man’s positive can be another man’s negative

And secondly, the more you try to avoid the negative, the more the negative starts appearing out of nowhere…

For example, If I were to tell you “NOT” to think of fruits, especially an apple as it is at the root of human suffering… do you think you can totally ban the apple from your thoughts or “avoid” thinking about it…As a matter of fact, the harder you try to forget or avoid…the more the repressed undercurrents find a place to reside and manifest…

Imagine yourself sitting in a movie hall and different movies are played in random order on the screen. You have no control over the order or the content of the movies displayed on the screen…

Some movies you like, some you dislike, some saintly, some devilish, some pious, some devilish…movies come and movies go… you simply watch…

Similar with the mind too…Thoughts come and Thoughts go… some holy thoughts, some unholy, some apparently sinful, some apparently holy… some mischievous, some straightforward… you simply watch…without attributing a label…without adjectivizing these thoughts…

Life simply exists in its pristine form…It is we who inadvertently put on shades

A dreamer, who from a window seat of a rail bogey, enjoys staring at the infinite plain lands, re-living images captured by the eyes, amused by a dogs yawn and its trot.. moved by a cows gaze and fascinated by the trail of army ants kissing each other to glory... I am not sure if slow n steady wins the race.. there is no race if you ask me....but certainly slow and steady has its own grace...
