(A Course in Miracles)
Positive thinking is an affront to the Zen discipline. Life is as it is, a Zen practitioner would say, not as we wish it to be. And it is our mission to discover the perfect imperfection in life itself.
Positive thinking is an affront to science, even though researchers of the mind will have to admit that, occasionally, a positive attitude begets positive results, just as a negative mindset can become self-fulfilling as well.
What’s going on then? How can we make sense of all this? There is a GOD-minded path; every action, thought and feeling is grasped as an expression of the WAY. The WAY is beyond good or bad. It is a journey with GOD.
