Imagine your mind to be a room in which there are four different corners, corresponding to the four types of thoughts. In the room is a big ball of light representing your awareness. Whatever this ball of light illuminates will dominate your consciousness.

Reflect on your mind’s activity yesterday and identify thoughts that came up under the various categories:

Mind control is all about empowering the functional and positive thoughts, and quietening the negative and wasteful thoughts. Engaging in spiritual practice and meditation are the most powerful tools we have to make this shift.
