In the Majjhima Nikaya, the Buddha explains how, when he was striving for Awakening, he divided his thoughts into two categories—the good and the bad—and then used appropriate reflections to eliminate the bad thoughts and cultivate the good thoughts. His reflections took into account not only the effect his thoughts would have on himself but also their impact on others. The bad thoughts are those that lead to harm for others, the good thoughts are those that are harmless.
