“When you are with people, see if you can turn off your thoughts, even for a few moments. Do not react, judge or make any mental comments to yourself about what they are saying. Do not think about ways you can help them; do not think of responses, but listen with a silent mind. You will begin to pick up much beneath the surface of what they are saying, such as feelings, images, and pictures. Do this with a sense of play and joy.
You can master your thoughts, your inner dialogue and your personal broadcast. Over and over, decline negative thoughts that come into your mind. Substitute higher ones. Fix your mind on higher ideas no matter what is going on around you. Spend some time learning to hold a focus, taming your mind and harnessing it as your friend. As you do so, you will become a source of light and love for all around you.”
Sanaya Roman, in “Personal Power through Awareness”
