This is a very simple meditation. Everyone can do it. In fact, it doesn't seem like meditation at all. But it works. It works very well. Here's the thing. We are always in a hurry. We always rush to catch the next thing in the future. Whatever that thing might be. A TV show, a meeting, a computer game, a romantic rendezvous, you name it. By when we do that, we forget to live our life. Because, we can live our life if we are at the ONLY time and in the ONLY place where life is happening: Here and Now. And if we are in a hurry, we miss that place and time altogether.
More often than not, Negative Thinking is a matter of habit. If you let thoughts linger in your mind, they will stay there unless, of course, you take action and get rid of them.
You might be tempted to use brute force on those thoughts. Don't.
It doesn't work that way. Pushing them out or using force often backfires on you.
You reinforce what you pay attention to. When you resist negative thoughts, you actually reinforce them. Then they become stronger. It's a vicious circle.
The more you try to avoid them, the more you think about them.
Obviously, you should do something different. Devise a different strategy.
