Happy thoughts, not so happy thoughts, the attaching energy to either one allows our emotions to push the on button that starts our roller coaster ride. Learn how to stay off the ride.
I know we all like our happy thoughts and we like to identify them as who we are, but what of those not so happy thoughts, we know we don’t want them and we definitely don’t want them to be who we are, but understand this, they are no different than our happy thoughts. All thoughts are energy in its purest form, their transforming affect is caused by our attachment to them. They affect our life differently dependent on the energy they are given. If you want to identify yourself with your happy thoughts you have to identify yourself with the not so happy ones also. But what would happen if you identified with neither, where would that leave you? Sit with that for a little while.
In the thoughtless realm there is no right, wrong, good, bad, like, dislike, anger, calm, happy or sad, there is only the everlasting abiding peace of non judgment of each precious moment that you are alive. These emotions listed are what controls the way that we’re pulled around when we attach to them. They still occur without the attachment, they just don’t control you. It is strictly the attachment to them that gives a thought the energy that makes life the roller coaster existence that most people experience.
When something happens in life and an emotion is attached to it, the ride begins. Up, down, round and round, loop the loop, fast, slow and when it finally runs its course, the ride stops, that is until the next emotion pushes the start button. Our thoughts aren’t in control until the start button is pushed. A thought is a thought is a thought. There’s no substance to it until its attached to, but its not really the thought that is given control, its the attachment, because without the attachment the thought would be unable to transform its energy. The thought of the roller coaster starting does not start it. You can have the thought all day long and that doesn’t push the start button. It is strictly the attachment to the thought that starts the ride and puts the emotions in motions.
Stay with me on this, our thoughts are like electricity and this is the energy provided to the roller coaster. But its just there, like a light that’s plugged in but isn’t turned on. So now depending on how you are conditioned, but regardless of the nature of the thought, when there is attachment to the thought the on button is pushed and the roller coaster starts moving. It has been set in motion and will now have to run its course. You pushed the start button so you will have to endure the consequences of this and some roller coaster are larger, faster and scarier than others. No one but you are responsible for starting this ride, so if you don’t want to constantly be on a roller coaster ride for the rest of your life, you will need to understand you are not your happy thoughts as you are not the not so happy ones, and just maybe you will learn how not to push your roller coasters start button.
