On the sixth day of the divine celebration of Shri Goverdhan pooja, Pujya Bhaishri went into the depths of negativity and how it is linked to the mind as follows.
Firstly, one cannot be successful in an effort of doing away with a negative mind because this is linked to saving the affirmative mind. Affirmation and negativity can only exist together. They cannot be separate from each other. Seeing them separate is like someone wanting to save one side of a coin and throw the other side.
Either the mind is completely saved or lost. It cannot be divided. Positivity and negativity accompany each other. Just because they are opposite of each other does not mean that they are separate. They supplement each other despite being contrary to each other. Just like day and night accompany each other, so do negativity and affirmation.
Thus, if one only wanted to do away with negativity then this will not be possible. Instead, think of releasing the mind. The mind here means both affirmation and negativity.
