This knowledge dates from very ancient times and has been handed down from generation to generation through an unbroken lineage of teachers. The following are practical points regarding the basic techniques and stages of meditation. They are primarily intended for the beginner. Be gentle and patient with your mind, do not expect miracles. The more care you give to the preparation the more positive the results.
Positive Thought by Swami Vishnu Devananda
“Positive” and “negative” are relative terms, something negative for someone can be positive for another person, something can be positive now and negative later. To note the long list of words to express the same idea of “positive” and “negative”. How do you know then when something is positive or negative when you are in a dilemma?
Formula to find out what is negative and what is positive:
Positive is anything that will bring you up to your true Self, to your Godhead or Divine nature. Negative is something that is bringing you down to your animalistic, instinctive lower nature.
