"The more man meditates upon good thoughts, the better will be his world and the world at large."
said Confucius. Patajanli gave a solution
" When negative or harmful thoughts disturb the mind, they can be overcome by constant pondering over their opposites"
as did Marcus Aurelius
“Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together,but do so with all your heart.” He also reminds us “When you arise in the morning think of what a privilege it is to be alive, to think, to enjoy, to love ...”
On anger Marcus Aurelius said
“Reject your sense of injury and the injury itself disappears.”
“How much more grievous are the consequences of anger than the causes of it.”
Let me conclude with this quote:
“The gift of learning to meditate is the greatest gift you can give yourself in this lifetime.” - Sogyal Rinpoche
and a prayer
" God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference" - Reinhold Niebuhr
