How Can We Transform Our Mind?

Transforming Our Mind

We can transform our mind by thinking on these four topics:

  • Love.
  • Compassion
  • Sympathetic joy.
  • Equanimity.

These attitudes are essential ingredients for our own happiness, peace of mind, and health, as well as for beneficial, satisfying relationships and interactions with others.

Cultivating these thoughts diminishes our habitual attitudes of self-grasping and self-centeredness, which disturb our peace of mind and lead to problems such as hatred for enemies, envy for rivals, and clinging to family and friends.
