Where do bad thoughts come from? I just started meditating a little over a month ago. I have always been an over-thinker and meditation has helped me become more aware and mindful. However, it really bothers me when I have a negative thought about someone. It is sometimes about the people that I love and these thoughts aren't true and are hurtful. I ask myself why in the world did that thought even come through my mind to begin with. I have a hard time grasping this.
“I’m thankful for my struggle because without it I wouldn’t have stumbled across my strength.”
“Miss no single opportunity of making some small sacrifice, here by a smiling look, there by a kindly word; always doing the smallest right and doing it all for love.”
“We must look at ourselves over and over again in order to learn to love, to discover what has kept our hearts closed, and what it means to allow our hearts to open.”
“Gratitude is the wine for the soul. Go on. Get drunk.”
