I have been thinking a lot, finally decided, let me write about it.
Thinking is often voluntary and most often involuntary action of the mind. We can choose what we do with our thoughts but how much control do we have over what we are thinking? Thinking when done with a purpose serves a purpose but when the mind is allowed to meander unchartered territories caution must be advised.
I have come to believe that thoughts do not have a soul, so conscious-thinking is not a necessary trait. They can be affected by feelings and change with actions. We do not have complete control over our thoughts but the actions we take as a result of our thoughts. Laxity in scrutiny is the mind’s superpower. We may not stop the thoughts in its track but we certainly can separate it from our mind more like suspend it in the air, scrutinize it and then choose to let it sink rather than us.
We can’t beat ourselves for losing control of our thoughts but with little effort we certainly can regain control of it especially, when the thoughts do us more harm than good.
