What is the Art of Positive Thinking?
Dhamma Tāpasā explores the art of positive thinking and how we can all practice and develop this fundamental life skill.
Being optimistic, and having a positive outlook on life can seem a rather daunting challenge at the moment. However I promise you the art of positive thinking is needed now more than ever.
So what and how do you develop a real sense of optimism? Especially when most of the so called civilised world seems to be falling apart around in front of our eyes. And is being too positive or optimistic a bad thing? Perhaps it’s better to fall victim to the doom and gloom that the media portrays after all?
The choice is your hands. You can be as happy and as positive as you think! Of course this is true for being as negative and unhappy as you wish!
What would you choose? The art of positive thinking is realising that we all have that choice. We can simply choose to be more positive or we can choose to be negative.
How we experience the world around us and the true art of positive thinking
Because your reading this, then you must be human and as humans we all experience the world the same way. Not all humans experience the same events or circumstances in life. And we definitely don’t have the same reactions to these circumstances as each other. Every single one of us has experienced anger in our lives. It’s the events or circumstances that triggered our reaction that’s completely different.
For some of us anger comes from being let down by another. Others this anger could be triggered by an incident on the road, perhaps someone cut us up in the morning. And still further some of us get angry because of the weather.
The events and circumstances to trigger anger can be an infinite number of circumstances. However the reaction to choose is innately yours and yours alone. So let’s choose the art of positive thinking.
So how does the mind work?
Every circumstance or event that happens to us comes from the outside. It comes too us from our 5 senses, our sense of touch, taste, hearing, seeing and feeling. This experience is then processed in our conscious mind, the inside. We will use many unconscious filters and ideology’s we have gathered throughout our lives and process this information. And all in a matter of nano seconds.
We use these filters that have been developed slowly over our lifetime and process this information. Like our Good or Bad filter as an example. Is what’s happening good or bad? Our positive or negative filter, Is this event a positive or negative one?
Outside-In vs Inside-Out
So how do we change this process?
Just understanding this process is a giant leap forward. By fully grasping the above paragraphs you can change your thinking. You can create more positivity in your life. The art of positive thinking is now in your grasp.
The momentary pause this understanding gives us is all that’s needed to replace our existing filters. We can begin to replace our dysfunctional filters with brand new responses.
To see the world as happening from inside-out rather than outside-in will change your perspective dramatically. By noticing that it is not the outside circumstances that dictate our reaction, but the inside experience that does. This will let you begin too change your responses, which in turn will effect your behaviours. This is now truly the art of positive thinking!
The next time an outside event happens, pause before your conscious responds. Choose instead to see it for what it is. Nothing more than a sense impression on your mind and choose the art of positivity.
