MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 19-4.1.
Chapter 19 - Thought-Culture-4.1.
4. Negative Thoughts-1.
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.
