Many people ask us whether encouraging people to find a calm state of mind and contentment isn’t just positive thinking. Our state of mind is BEFORE what we think; when we are at peace and our minds are quiet, the quality of thoughts we produce is a much higher level than the thoughts we produce from a negative or upset state of mind. The problem with the technique of Positive Thinking is that is doesn’t come from our own level of Consciousness; it’s a technique we impose on ourselves to try to feel better. We don’t truly SEE or believe those thoughts. When we address our state of mind and quiet down, more positive thoughts naturally come to mind; we don’t need to read them from a list.
