How To Kill A Thought (In A Good Way): More On Mindfulness - Forbes

"In many ways, the brain will do what it will do. But it is rewire-able. It just has to be reminded of a better way – and reminded again, and perhaps again – which will ultimately shift our thoughts for the better, so that they can’t “dupe” us as they have before. So, in the end, it’s not so much about killing our thoughts as it is about investigating them until they lose their power, and they often stop coming on their own. This is the real practice."
