Introduction:Some studies record that many people think negative thoughts most of the time. What makes a person a half-full person or half-empty? Several psychologists believe it is our attitudes. We choose what we meditate on and it starts with training and disciplining our minds to think positive thoughts.
When you think a negative thought, stop and ask yourself, "Is this true?" Many times we make assumptions that other people don't like us or that we are ugly, have nothing good to offer others, can't do anything right and on and on it goes. Is this really true? Are you an honest person? Meditating on honesty means you will be an honest person and have integrity and respect with yourself and others. Even the small things like returning a $20 bill that fell out of someone's wallet, is just and honest. It all comes back to you one way or another.
Things that are pure have innocence and no darkness or corruption associated with them. Some pure things to meditate on that come to my mind are babies, children, baby animals, love, snow, light, laughter, nurses, weddings, ballet, music, heaven and God.
Lovely things are everywhere in this world. Good and bad run parallel and we just need to chose to meditate on the lovely things more than the ugly things. Some very lovely things to me are flowers, trees, tropical places, sailing, dancing, swimming, lakes, oceans, beaches, mountains, waterfalls, sunsets, clouds, old people, rain showers, and much more.
This is a big one in the day of media gossip and slander. It also applies to our daily life and people we encounter. What are you listening too on a daily basis? Jerry Springer and Judge Judy or the Travel Channel and Home and Garden? What you listen to becomes thoughts that replay over and over. Like the saying goes- "garbage in, garbage out." Guard your ears carefully.
Meditating on things that are just means to think about justice. When you go out into the community, do you meditate on justice and live it? It can be little things like putting shopping carts back or big things like treating people with concern and fairness. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." This is the just way to live and it will make your meditation sweet.
