I've started reading a book called "The Power of Now" by Eckhart Tolle (my last therapist recommended it). It's much about forgetting the pain of the past and the worrying of the future, and living in the "now".
Eckhart Tolle had anxiety and depressive thoughts until one night when he was 29 and got a sort of "revelation", since then he got rid of the bad thoughts, have become a spiritual guide, though I regard him more as a philosopher, with an interesting take on how to think and be more aware in the present, and feel better.
I haven't read it all but might write a short review when I'm done, otherwise there is the big web to explore more about the book.

Probably the Best book I have ever read on that topic.
Actually I bought the cassette version and then gave that to a friend.
I am taking a Raga Yoga Course which is basically meditation and how to channel thoughts.

What we are learning is that we can think about whatever we want whenever we want.
