My Issue with Mantras
Sunday, July 29, 2018
A lot of people take inspiration from mantras. It helps them to achieve their goals, etc. Yet for me whenever I look at mantras they feel like judgments, like criticism. Rather than being inspired I become weighed down with the failure of not achieving what that mantra is saying. Basically mantras have the exact opposite effect on me and my psyche. I become crushed by them and the failure of not already doing them. This ties in also with positive thinking. For me, positive thinking is fake, trite, and doesn't encompass the complexity of life. If anyone has any tips, I'd appreciate it. Everyone I know personally says they can't help me.
