A Thought To Ponder


spring

An interesting method

for dealing with negative and unwanted thoughts.

Don't let them possess you.

Don't assume you have to act them out.

On the other hand;

Don't struggle mightily to suppress them, either.

Instead, try this:

Bow to the offending idea.

Acknowledge and admire its power.

Express your gratitude and respect to it

For galvanizing so much of your psychic energy
