The typical New Age notion is that you want good things to happen to you, so think good thoughts; and because you
create your own reality, those thoughts will come true. Conversely, if you are sick, it’s because you have been bad.
The mystical notion, on the other hand, is that your deepest Self transcends both good and bad, so by accepting
absolutely everything that happens to you - by equally embracing both good and bad with equanimity - you can
transcend the ego altogether. “The idea is not to have one thing that is good smash into another thing called my ego
but to simply rise above both."
