De-Brine Your Mind, Part 3

     In the March-April edition of Spirituality and Health, Kevin Anderson writes that one way to combat the brine of constant negativity that we soak in daily is to think more positive thoughts.  Based on different issues that you might struggle with, he offers a series of pithy quotes.  Here is another sampling:

     If your issue is that you feel you cannot go fast enough, do enough, or have enough time, try these on for size:
A mind that is fast is sick.  A mind that is slow is sound.  A mind that is still is divine.  (Meher Baba)
What we plant in the soil of contemplation, we shall reap in the harvest of action.  (Meister Eckhart) 
      What if you struggle with shame?  Try these:
Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls, the most massive characters are seared with scars.  (Kahlil Gibran)
I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing Light of your own being.  (Hafiz) 
     Beautiful, no?
