Better than a thousand hollow words is one word that brings peace. Buddha
Now, I'm not a Buddhist, but I do think we can learn from others, others religions, others life, and others lifestyles.
And no matter what - you CAN FIND THE SAME MESSAGE in music, radio, movie stars, religions, people, work, medicine,teachers, books, meditations, quotes, art, etc.
You can find positive thinking and you can find negative thinking.
If you want to be a member of the Positive Thinkers Club you have to dismiss the negative and dwell on the positive.
Can you be a member of the Positive Club and still think negative? IF AND ONLY IF the positive thoughts far out way the negative thoughts, only if you want to be positive and strive to be positive, and only if you start catching yourself when you do it and TRY TO CHANGE.
I AM in the positive club...although I do make mistakes...
It is not an easy task, what what good things come easy and without work?
