It takes years of self-study to be able to catch, see and then dismiss negative thoughts. What could be more critical than dismissing any negativities? Most people ignore self-examination because they believe there is nothing to learn, so they spend their lives fearing anything that comes close to this wrong belief. There is something to learn. There are endless things to know. Tapping into parts of yourself that yearn to see more makes everyday fun and interesting. Fame won’t bring you to completeness. Becoming rich will not help you find the self-ease you secretly seek. Realizing that you could be doing better than how you presently approach life and then beginning to develop the inner tools to do so inspires you to see your preceding realization. Those self-defeating thoughts do not have a chance to root and wreck your day, and here’s why… Realization is higher than thought. Don’t be afraid to see any negative thought that passes thru your mind. Don’t believe they are you; they are not. It takes years to dismiss them; because we are falsely sure they are us. They are not. Watching and staying awake and alert to these thoughts renders them harmless. We catch them before they sink into our minds. Ponder all this, and you are on your way to dismissing negative, painful thoughts.
