Are you guilty?

Well yeah, you probably are occasionally, as am I from time to time .  .  .

Guilty of what? 

Unproductive, if not destructive thinking .  .  .

Human consciousness is about thoughts .  .  .  We think, we analyze, we look for solutions to problems, and on and on .  .  .  Yeah, we think and then think some more .  .  .

Aerosmith has a song with lyrics, If you could step outside your mind .  .  .

Imagine that concept being reality .  .  .  In fact, it CAN be reality .  .  .  

Spend a day analyzing your thoughts .  .  .

Are they angry?  Are they of jealousy?  Are they of worry?  Are they about things we can't control?  Are they of worst case scenarios?  Are they of poor self-esteem?  Are they positive?  Are they life enhancing?  Are they self-affirming thoughts?

We can go on and on, but the point is, we ARE what we think .  .  .  Our behaviors and actions define us .  .  .  Where do actions come from?  They don't occur in isolation, they come from thoughts .  .  .  So in reality, it's our THOUGHTS which drive behaviors and then define us .  .  .

An idea .  .  .  Take a step outside your mind, and become an observer of thoughts .  .  .  Maybe it'll be enlightening .  .  .

Do you like what you see?

Life is beautiful baby!

Peace and love .  .  .

Until next time .  .  .  Ciao!!

This is what I came to realise during my alone time. We have so many thoughts coming from as far back as our childhood. We tend to repeat some negative thoughts not even realising how negative they are, until one day, it all makes sense, and then we try to see the positive side of the whole thing. Not easy, but it is a great thing to be aware of it.

It can be very enlightening to observe thoughts, but then begin to analyze where the negative thoughts come from and what's motivating them . . . Once we begin to do that, we can begin to change those negatives into positives . . . Thank you for the comment Frenchy . . . Ciao!
