How To Stay Positive Guaranteed!

How to stay positive when life around you appears to be chaotic.

This is where meditation can work for you.

Fifteen minutes a day can change your life.

That’s what meditation can do. And I guarantee it will work. You don’t get many offers like that today, do you?


Yes I can guarantee that mediation will work for you. It can change you - mind, body and spirit.

The only reason I say “can” change you instead of will change you, is that I can guarantee what mediation will do, but I cannot guarantee what you will do.

And you, as always , are the most important factor in the equation.

You may remember the story of the rich young ruler who came to Jesus asking how to obtain eternal life. He indicated he would do anything, but when Jesus told him what to do, we are told that instead “ he went away sorrowed for he had great possessions” (Mark 10: 17-22). His possessions - the very thing Jesus said, he would need to give up - were really more important to him than the eternal life he thought was his heart’s desire. Jesus method was guaranteed; what we could not guarantee, however, was the young mans response.

I have found because we want to change our lives in some way- mind, body or spirit. But, having learned the techniques, we often find that many go away like the rich young ruler, sorrowed because the fifteen minuets per day meditation required was more than he wanted to spend on changing his life. I know a man who had arthritis, on a daily program of relaxation, mediation, and imagery, he got relief from the aches and pains of his arthritis. But, like most practitioners of meditating, he got much more than he had been looking for, his life got better.

Along with the physical benefits, meditation also helps you to take charge of your mind. One of the universal benefits of mediation is the improvement in your power of concentration, that ability to focus your mind on a task and gain access to a greater range of internal resources in a accomplishing that task. It can enable you to work better in the midst of distractions, to desensitize yourself to annoyances that are sometimes beyond your control. If done in the mindfulness of Christ consciousness it will unit you to that one mind. God’s mind.

Mediation is also invaluable in helping you work better with your emotions, particularly the negative, destructive ones. It is impossible to sustain anger, anxiety, and resentments when you are in the midst of a meditative state. Eliminating destructive emotions.

Mediation does not mean you are sweeping them under the rug, or burying them in the unconscious where they continue to stress you literally and figuratively eat away a you, thus mediation is a very important means of dealing with the major stress of life.
Mediation is also invaluable to your positive creativity. I have found, it releases creativity , develops your power of intuition, and prepares you to give or receive healing. For us, as well as for countess others, mediation has also been a means of communion with God - an aide and supplement to prayer.

Mediation is hard to define, and the more we experience and the more we learn, the more we have come to realize that mediation cannot be categorized neatly.

Freud and Jung having found that self is very much like an iceberg:” the small part showing above the water represents the conscious mind, and the physical world of sense experience, time and space: the much, much larger portion under the waterline being the unconscious, the nonmaterial, the spiritual world where memories are hidden, behaviors are motivated, autonomic body functions are governed, creativity lies waiting, dreams are generated, where we discover true self and many would add we among them, - the God within is resides. Just because you may be largely unaware of this other part of you doesn’t’ mean that It is not important. Many people are learning today what religious teachers and philosophers have been teaching for centuries.


"Visualizing means mentally seeing the things that you wish to have or to do. When you mentally see the things you desire, and see them very clearly, you are presenting Universal Mind with images of thought; and, like the creative soil of the ground, It at once tends to project them into form. If the thought image is clear it provides a good mold; if it is imperfect the mold is a poor one. This does not mean that one must set his mind or hold thought; it simply means that he must think clearly. There is no power in holding thoughts; indeed, the real secret of successful mental work is to loose thought and let Mind operate upon it.

The first thing to do is to decide what you wish to image into Mind. After having become composed in thought, begin to see the complete outcome of your desires, in mental pictures. Suppose that you wish to demonstrate a home; you should know just what kind of home you wish. Of course, if you simply thought of house you would get something, but the more definite the picture the better the results will be. In order to make the picture complete, decide just what kind of a home you wish to live in; then, in the silence of your thought, mentally look at this house; go from room to room, stopping here and there to look at some piece of furniture or at some picture on the wall. Make the whole thing real, as far as possible; enter the house, sit down and feel that you are actually living there, saying, "I am now living in this house." You have set a word in motion through the Law which will bring a realization of your desire, unless you, yourself, neutralize the picture by doubting it. Do this every day until the house appears. Use the same process in visualizing anything.: Ernest Holmes Science of Mind

It is important to expect nothing, to take every experience, including the negative ones, as merely steps on the path, and to proceed.
Ram Dass
