Our Positive and Negative Mind

 (Taken from the book: Power, Freedom and Grace by Deepak Chopra)

We all experience mind switches throughout our day. Our minds can take in a lot of information every second, every minute, and hour of the day. We gather negative and positive interpretations in our minds.

A negative mind is an interpretation and a positive mind is also an interpretation.

It can both be a turbulent mind. We can switch over from one to the other very quickly.

You can be courageous the one minute then become fearful the next. Love can transform into jealousy before you know it!

The important thing to attain a positive mind is to be silent. A silent mind is a positive mind.

We can learn to go beyond our positive and negative mind; we then become silent, non-judgemental, non-analytical, and non-interpretive.

We become the silent witness when we experience inner silence. In purity of silence we feel connected to our source and to everything around us.

Who is This? : poem by Rabindranath Tagore

I came out alone on my way to my tryst.
But who is this that follows me in the silent dark?
I move aside to avoid his presence but I escape him not.
He makes the dust rise from the earth with his swagger;
he adds his loud voice to every word I utter.
He is my own small self, my lord, he knows no shame:
but I am ashamed to come to your door in his presence.
