Don’t believe everything you think, unless your mind is settled enough most of what you think will be a lie. A thought is a thought, but just because it’s there that doesn’t mean it’s true.
Nothing is a problem unless it’s made so. Think of the context of this simple yet profound sentence. Nothing, no matter what is nether right or wrong, good or bad, or liked or disliked, unless one of those labels are attached to a thought. Our life is controlled by our thoughts and most are based in a faulty foundation. The fault lies in the mind and the way it has been conditioned. Here are some of the ways it has been conditioned and if you get quiet enough you’ll see this for yourself; the car in front of you is going to slow. I have to go food shopping, I’m tired, my allergies are horrible, I’m bored, etc, etc, etc.
Here is where the fault lies in these thoughts. All of them start out as a single thought, but that isn’t where the fault lies, the thought is just the result of something that triggers it. What happens next is where the fault lies. We believe the thought; we actually think the car in front is going to slow, or going food shopping is horrible. We believe our thoughts to be true and then we act accordingly. If the thought wasn’t labeled to be true, we would possibly be able to see beyond what we labeled as true to see what was really going on. And that would be that the car in front isn’t really going to slow, we are just being controlled by an undisciplined Conditioned Mind.
Learn to watch the nonsense you believe to be true. There is so much of it, it is hard to fathom. I mentioned one time to a person about the way we poison ourselves with tobacco products and his response was, he enjoyed them. That is insanity, to enjoy poisoning yourself, but that’s the lie of a Conditioned Mind. People enjoy all sorts of things that are harmful, including behaviors that harm others, but that doesn’t make it ok. All I’m saying is watch the thoughts that you think and learn how so many are based in lies to keep you in captivity to your Conditioned Mind. But by no means should you take my word for it. The next time a thought pops into your head, take a moment before you label it and really take notice if what you are thinking is true or if it is just a lie of a Conditioned Mind.
