Parama Pujya Shri Shri Nimishananda Guruji replies :-

There are two things you can do. You can simply remain passive without involving yourself with these negative thoughts. When they get no attention, they fade away and no fresh karma is generated by them. This requires a certain stability of mind. If you find this difficult, push these thoughts away with disgust mentally saying – “How can I be thinking such horrible thoughts?” This is like inducing forced vomiting when poison is ingested. After we practice this for sometime, such thoughts cease to exist.


Negative thoughts

Negative thoughts can be eradicated with the counter attack of positive thinking.

To have to be detached for the annihilation of negative thoughts through the meditation as being taught by Swami Gokulananda -------- meditation either through opened eyes or through closed eyes.

Observe the thoughts, without attachment in meditation, and they disappear just a car running on a road went out of the sight within a few minutes. Negative thoughts may disappear justlike a flow of water in river go further but next flow of positive thoughts come to replace justlike the water flown ahead earlier.

Power of Mantra eradicates the negative thoughts when mantra given by guru through initiation is chanted in the heart and mind.

Blessings of God and Guru eradicate the negative thoughts.

Nagative Thoughts

Very True,
A Guru's initiation and an effort of a seeker will make the negative thoughts positive and the positive thoughts to Divine thoughts there by making the seeker a Divine Being.
Thanks for your comments.

Negative is Positive

"Negative" is pure duality.
What is negative for one is positive to another.... (ie: the observer determines the observation be it good or evil, negative or positive.)

Duality's “negative-thought”: “kick god in the ass” – is not only a positive-thought to Awakening it is funny: because only with a “kick in the ass” can the good, god, reveal it-Self to be evil – if, for no other reason... because he deceives his worshipers with his reality.

Negative-thoughts are the positive-thoughts
needed to cancel dualities into the ONE that thoughts make None, NOW

… as long as negative thoughts appear rock solid and certain
they cannot reveal that
the only purpose of negative-thoughts
is to cover all the positive-thoughts
that reveal the ONE that thoughts make None: NOW.

Really, Really; REALLY.

why recite and quote

when negative thoughts creep into your mind, try to formulate your own opinion about them rather than reciting blindly your master's words.

Try to find the originality within you. You can. You do not need to follow nor market someone else. It leads to nothing.
