For those of you who wrestle with thoughts and want to do some quality control, Eknath Eashwaran's book, Conquering the Mind is a good reference. [DO READ: Signs of Progress in Meditation ]
Here's what kept me glued to Eknath Eashwaran's book:
1. You get practical examples of how to control the quality of thoughts that arise in your mind. [Do READ: How Raja Yoga unites Mind Power with Cosmic Power]
2. Simple but useful tips for meditation. [BONUS READ: What happens within you when you meditate ]
3. The daily challenges we face when we try to control the quality of thoughts that arise in the mind are dealt with using simple examples.
As a working mother, the most important takeaway for me is this: I have seen a positive change in my 9-year-old son when I cite Eknath Eashwaran's 'quality control' arguments to him. It makes sense to him.
Using specific tips from this book, it is possible to instil the habit of training children to watch the quality of thoughts that arise in the mind.
