‘Positive Thinking’ (just) creates another story in our mind. Awareness transcends both positive and negative, allowing us to free our mind.

I am all for stories if they help me feel better. But maybe practicing awareness through meditation is a healthier way to deal with negativity. Otherwise, are we in a never ending ping-pong match with feeling good-feeling bad?
Is that why they call it “Transcendental Meditation? Because it helps us to transcend the feeling good-feeling bad ping-pong match we have with ourselves?!
Transcendental Meditation (TM) refers to a specific form of silent, mantra meditation and the organizations that constitute the Transcendental Meditation movement. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi created and introduced the TM technique and TM movement in India in the mid-1950s.
