I've been practicing DP and samyama for a while now and I'm having a problem. Whenever I think of a word(sutra) and let it go, I can't help but think of a negative word. Now I either fight or accept the other word too. Fighting will make the other word stronger and acceptance brings fear (what if the negative word manifests?)

I just don't know what to do. Any ideas to tackle this are greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance

Very unusual, funny how your mind has chosen this trick. Worthy of inquiry me thinks.

Love/Hate, Radiance/Blackness, Unity/Dismemberment...

Fear is not warranted; intention plays a big part so if you intend Love, that is favored in the passing. Accept the negative echo in amusement, yoga is playful if you’re open to that.

Edit:Welcome!

Hi ConfusedSiva,

Welcome to the forums!

Dropping negative words into silence will not produce greater negativity. So, you do not need to be worried. This is because inner silence does not work simply as an amplifier of everything that is dropped into it.

Inner silence has certain qualities, such as the quality of bliss and of divine love. For this reason, it will tend to amplify positive qualities that are dropped into it, but transform negative qualities. For example is we are experiencing anger and we release the anger into stillness, the anger will be dissolved and transformed into peacefulness and equanimity creating space for joy and bliss to arise. If we release joy into inner silence, the joy will become amplified and we will experience greater joy.

So, Samyama is actually quite an incredible practice in this way. As we progress further on the path, Samyama begins to become a natural way of being in the world, happening all of the time within us, with negative emotions or thoughts continuously dissolving in the inner silence and being transformed into joy and peace and bliss.
