WORD ASSOCIATION: What comes to your mind when you hear the word beauty? What comes to your mind when you hear the word violence? What comes to mind when you hear the word peace? We associate an image with every word in our head. When you hear your best friends name called out. You have his image in your mind. If you are afraid of a snake, the word snake will automatically bring terror in front of your eyes.
What if that can be changed? What if every word in your head can be given a whole new image to be associated with. Its like this, you have an image of a beautiful girl in your head. When you think about beauty that’s what pops up in your head. Then one day you see someone more beautiful walk past you. That older image is automatically substituted by the new one. Now think of beauty and you will think of the second girl.
Similarly what if the bad things are disassociated too. You think of violence and you have an image of people being killed brutally with their hands and torso torn out with blood smears all over the place. Now you train your mind to dissociate it completely. So much so that the next time you hear the word violence there is nothing but a blank sheet with “bad” written on it.
Like wise I’m trying one more thing consciously these days. I want to remove all the negatives from my conversation or at least my thought process as much as possible. I always have a list of people in my mind whom I hate and now I would rather say, I not fond of them. Every instance you say the word hate, somewhere in the subconscious you know you are not supposed to use that. This is going to be an on going experience. I will let you know about the results too.

This is the human being's thing! But I truly agree with the idea. If we can do, the society will be at least more beautiful.. :)
