Mindfulness involves a way of life that evaluates our thoughts and emotions, while they are happening or about to happen. A great master, Atisha, who lived about 1000 years ago, would observe his mind. When negative thoughts or emotions arose, he would place a black stone, and work on transforming the harmful thought or emotion into it’s opposite positive one. If a positive one arose, he would place a white stone. At the beginning there were many more black stones than white ones. Gradually with time the black and white stones were equal, then the white ones overpassed the black ones. It is possible to change our minds and hearts to become more positive.
