Keep Thinking Positive Thoughts, It’s Good For Your Health

Keep Thinking Positive Thoughts, It’s Good For Your Health

Zen Mind

No day of rest on this Sunday, as I’m sure most everyone else is not doing.

It’s the weekend before Christmas weekend, and I see out there that it’s hectic and busy, and I’m trying as best as I can to avoid it.

I really don’t like crowds. I like peace and quiet, as I sit writing this in the comfort of my home (my ashram).

I’m sipping my usual morning raw cacao banana smoothie, with the raw protein powder, and as usual, it feels good.

Usually, I try not to eat a big breakfast, mainly because I feel it weighs me down when I like to rush revving up this human engine with a little fuel at a time. For Dinner is the time I eat hardy since we as humans typically fast through the night while sleeping.

I have read that Buddhist Monks will fast until lunchtime, eat a good lunch and fast for the rest of the day until next day during lunchtime. Hmmm… interesting. And I see the logic. They meditate and pray throughout the day and they don’t need their digestive systems working full-time when they can focus all their mental, physical and spiritual energies towards their yogic, meditative practices.

One thing that is very important, I believe, is that of maintaining positive thoughts throughout the day. Of course, stress kills and any kind of negative thoughts in the mind is detrimental to our overall wholistic well-being.

That is why meditation is so important. WE need the time to chill and quiet the mind. WE focus on the breathing as a means of controlling our minds, our emotions. Otherwise, we let ourselves become slaves to our emotions.

That is the whole point of Yoga and Meditation.

We need to harness our mental and spiritual energies, and discipline our minds. The only way is focused concentration and to quiet the mind.

Many people don’t do enough of this (myself included)…

For me, I think I need added focused time to meditate. And I know this helps my performances and my practices as a musician.

But, positive thoughts are very important, and our ability to still our minds.

It begins by slow, controlled breathing.

And it is as easy as that…
