Any bad thought inside of you that cannot be you becoz your essence is goodness,peace and loveBut where do bad thoughts come from ? Bad thoughts are suggestions from Satan
He wants you to hate your life ,to lose faith and hope in yourself ,your life and most important of all to lose faith in God!
And Satan always use the same tricks by reminding you how many times you prayed to God and your prayers are not answered yet
That God is not hearing you or faraway
Satan speaks with your voice inside your head so you are so unlikely to recognize that this voice is not you
If some of you read the brilliant book “New Earth” ,you would know for sure that most of the thoughts and emotions inside you are Ego-based and that is the real you is the one who is behind thought and feeling
Try it ,for a few seconds stop all thoughts and feelings inside yourself ,you will find complete stillness and silence ,you are that silence or as they call it in spirituality ” Presence or Consciousness”
If you created that space inside yourself whenever you feel sad ,angry ,negative ,detach yourself for a moment ,be present and experience the real you by staying conscious and be behind the thought or the feeling watching it ,just watching it not judging or even naming it
It is the only way of becoming more aware and present
Back to Satan “or the negative voice inside your head” , he first suggest a very bad idea or make you think very negative thoughts ,the negative thoughts generates automatically negative feelings inside yourself and the negative feelings attract very negative situations to your life and then the negative situations make you think of more bad thoughts and more negative feelings follow and you will remain in that negative vicious cycle forever if you did not do something to break it!
So here’s the important question : how can you stop all this from happening?
First recognize the voice as not yours ,watch it and say mmmmm interesting thought
Consider yourself someone who is sitting at the very backseat at the cinema and you are watching on the screen your thoughts and your feelings ,you are just watching ,you wont get up from your seat or get involved in anything that is happening inside the screen ,namely inside of you !
Once you watch the thought without reacting to it ,it loses its power over you
You are no longer the victim to whatever thoughts roam your mind but you are the controller of everything and the same time you are not controlling anything ,you are just letting the thoughts float without judging or resisting them
I love the story that was mentioned in “New Earth”,awesome book by the way and a Must-read, about the power of surrender ,the zen master who accepted everything that happened to him by replying by one question to everything “Is it so”?
He refuses to engage in human drama so he lets everything go wether it’s good or bad
Our lives are the manifestation of the thoughts we think plus the feelings we feel on a continuous basis
So change your thoughts by talking back to them ,once you have a negative thought ,talk back to it and change it before it drags you down into the abyss of negativity
Be the silent watcher ,just watch and be aware
Don’t judge anything as good or bad ,live like zen masters and let everything go
Becoz getting attached to a thought whether good or bad ,in the case of good thoughts, it makes you have very high expectations then eventually disappointment if everything didn’t turn out as you like or want and in the case of bad you would resent and resist life and you will suffer for a long time until you decide to change and accept Life for what it is
Your life starts to change the day you accept it with its ups and downs ,good and bad
Life is always fair and you always end up with the consequeces of what you choose
So don’t blame life and don’t blame yourself ,blame is just more negativity
Recognize that you made a mistake and learn from it to make better choices in the future
You are the master of you destiny
You are the captain of your soul
Then it’s up to you to choose what to make with your life
