1. Dilution— Distance Yourself From The Thought:
Whenever a negative thought pops into your mind, remember that it is not you. Rather than adopting it, you can distance yourself from it.
2. Substitution—Replace A Negative Thought With A Positive Thought:
When unwholesome thoughts contrary to self-discipline and goodness arise in the mind, the reverse thoughts should be practiced.
3. Sublimation—Build A Positive Thought System:
Focus building on the thought chain of positive emotions. Cultivate in your mind wholesome ideas of inspiration, optimism, cheerfulness.
