Benefits of a positive mind

As long as a positive outlook is maintained, energy keeps flowing into the mind. There is little or no mental burden, and there is a feeling of lightness that permeates the entire being.

Obstacles to maintaining a positive mind

Giving up the ego is the hardest thing to do, even if it means a light and positive mind with all its benefits.

Ways to turn the mind towards the positive

One way to turn the orientation of the mind towards positivity is to actively recruit and seed appropriate thoughts and ideas into the field of the conscious mind.

While setting an intention, it is essential to note that we must not have any expectation of a result. The moment we entertain expectation, we sow seeds of negativity which will eventually take over.

Being content is the foundation of a positive mind.
