The Art of Positive Thinking
with Arthur Calnan
September 5, 12, 19, 26
Negative thinking can be a strong habit which brings us down and prevents us from living a happy, fulfilling life.
If we understand the power of the mind to create our experience we can learn to transform our mental state from negative to positive through meditation. We can then gain the ability to maintain positive wisdom-based attitudes in our daily life and activities. In this way we can radically solve our problems and create causes for lasting happiness.
Discover through the practical timeless wisdom of Buddhist meditation how to apply positive thinking to your own life right now. Open to all levels of experience.
About these classes
The purpose of meditation is to cultivate positive states of mind, conducive to peace and well-being, and overcome negative habits of mind.
If we examine our life we can see that most of our time and energy is devoted to seeking material and emotional security. Although these things can make us happy for a short time, they are not able to provide the deep lasting contentment that we long for.
Happiness is a state of mind, therefore the real source of happiness lies in the mind, not in external situations. If our mind is peaceful we will experience happiness, regardless of our external circumstances, but if it is unpeaceful we will never find happiness, no matter how successful we are in improving our external conditions. The method to make our mind peaceful is through meditation.
“When the turbulence of distracting thoughts subsides and our mind becomes still, a deep happiness and contentment naturally arises from within.” – Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
