The Eightfold Path – Right Thought

So many thoughts

How many thoughts do we have a day? According to the google search, it is between 50,000 to 70,000. That is between 35 and 48 thoughts per minute per person. Zhiyi, who is a Chinese Buddhist priest said “一念三千” (Three Thousand Realms in a Single Thought Moment). It means our needle of mind moves three hundred sixty degrees, go up and down in every second. Since we have so many thoughts in a day we have good ones or evil ones also.

Attracted with evil spirits

Although our needle of mind moves any directions if it tends to upward, it’s OK. But it inclines downward, it’s not good at all. If your needle of mind is always heading down, in such a condition evil spirits will easi possess you and you will be controlled by them. So it is very important to reflect your mind and once you found that negative thoughts were filled with your mind, you have to drive your mind correctly. Your negative thoughts attract negative existence such as a evil or devil. Beware of it.

Controlling your mind is contributing your life back think correctly and wisely. In order to have right thoughts, we have to always grasp the condition of the mind. Reflect your mind is a method to have right mind. So it is always recommend to practice reflective meditation.
