Drive away from your mind all unnecessary, useless and obnoxious thoughts. Useless thoughts impede your spiritual growth; obnoxious thoughts are stumbling blocks to spiritual advancement. You are away from God when you entertain useless thoughts. Substitute thoughts of God. Entertain only thoughts that are helpful and useful. Useful thoughts are the stepping-stones to spiritual growth and progress. Do not allow the mind to run into the old grooves and to have its own ways and habits. Be on the careful watch.
You must eradicate through introspection all sorts of mean thoughts, useless thoughts, unworthy thoughts, impure thoughts, all sexual thoughts, thoughts of jealousy, hatred and selfishness. You must annihilate all destructive thoughts of disharmony and discord. You must develop thought-culture of good, loving, sublime thoughts, divine thoughts. Every thought must be of a constructive nature. It must be strong, positive and definite. The mental image must be of a clear-cut and well-defined nature. You must develop right thinking. Every thought must bring peace and solace to others. It should not bring even the least pain and unhappiness to anyone. Then you are a blessed soul on the earth. You are a mighty power on the earth. You can help many, heal thousands, spiritualize and elevate a large number of persons as did Jesus and Buddha.
Just as you grow jasmine, rose, lily, honolulu flowers in a garden, so also you should cultivate the flowers of peaceful thoughts of love, mercy, kindness, purity in the vast garden of Antahkarana. Through introspection, you have to water this garden of mind with meditation and sublime thinking and remove the weeds of vain, useless discordant thoughts.

It is difficult but not impossible.

Every man has got his own views, his own opinion, ideas, sentiments, beliefs and convictions. It is very difficult to change the views of others .I not try to convince you but giving clarification on your judgment about my post.
As you saying to draw all thoughts from mind is not possible. I am agree with you .
My point to this post to draw only UNNECCESORY thoughts and control thoughts.

while bad and negative thoughts in our mind ‘s give us unhappiness ,stress . These all bad and unimportant thoughts like Ego (position ego ,wealth ego, intellectual /knowledge ego, Beauty ego, Age ego ) jealousy, anger, hate, affection for money, fame, prosperity are require to remove from mind and make space in mind to grow new and good thoughts.

Techniques Of Thought-Control

The following are some of the auto-suggestions for controlling your thoughts: (1) I shall not think of anything. (2) I shall get peace, if I do not think of anything. (3) My will is growing strong. I can control my thoughts. (4) I will get perfect peace when I am thoughtless. I eagerly long for that thoughtless state.
Each thought, by itself, is extremely weak, because the mind is distracted into countless and ever-varying thoughts. The more the thoughts are restrained, the more is the mind concentrated and, consequently, the more does it gain in strength and power. Destroy the evil thoughts one by one. It doubtless needs patient work.
As soon as you slowly wake up in the morning, the first thought that comes is 'I'. Then comes the memory of the events of the previous evening. The strong thoughts that float in the mind this evening slowly emerge out the moment you rise from your bed in the following morning and materialise. Then come the thoughts that are to fructify in the course of the day. Watch this carefully.
When a thought hovers in the mind, fulfil it. Do not allow it to linger on for a long time. It will frequently recur again and again. It will be a source of great trouble. Whenever a thought flashes out to write a letter to your friend, then and there finish that piece of work. Do not procrastinate it.
There are four ways of destroying evil thoughts. A Jnana Yogin (student of the path of Knowledge) does it by living in OM or Truth. He destroys the evil thoughts by Vichara and attitude of indifference. He says, "This has nothing to do with me. I am Satchidananda-Svarupa, Sivoham, Sivoham. These impulses belong to the mind. I am distinct from the mind." A Bhakta destroys the same by prayer and self-surrender. He says, "O God! I have surrendered myself, the fruits of all actions and the actions themselves to Thee. Give me strength to drive away and destroy these evil thoughts." He gets help from God through self-surrender. God sublimates the sex-impulse into Sattva or Ojas (spiritual energy). The Raja Yogin destroys evil thoughts either by destroying the Vrittis as they arise or by substituting opposite, positive thoughts of Sattvic nature, by supplanting sublime thoughts in their stead (Pratipaksha-Bhavana).

I am greatly surprise from your reaction in such mature age.

I am not teacher or master or guru on this site as I clearly mention in my profile. This electronic virtual medium is not teach any thing practically to any body except to some can chech appropriate good thing from good post.
I am not trying to imposing my ideas, thoughts ,believes on anybody. try to share my observation self experience on this site selflessly. Sharing the knowledge is not mean by chatting on internet.
If it is crime than god will decide my punishment for me .you need not to show me a path to leave from this site and stop chatting .Site owner is there.
We should never under estimate anybody and respect others thoughts. We should never self assessment our intellectuality .What we thinks may not think by other or other have experience on it ,or what we thinks other may be master on that subjects.

I appreciate the positivity

I appreciate the positivity of your thought process.I think control over the THOUGHT is necessary and it is possible only when you realise that what is good and what is bad.
POSITIVE THOUGHT gives more ENERGY to you and NEGATIVE THOUGHTS drains ENERGY from you.One conscious SHIFT is needed.It takes time to motivate oneself with such thought process.

To be THOUGHTLESS,it is not a normal process.A person becomes thoughtless when all his desires vanishes even desire for TRUTH.That is the ULTIMATE TRUTH..........
Thankyou for sharing my view.
