Unless one’s mind is settled enough, most of what one thinks will be a lie of the Conditioned Mind, so one shouldn’t believe everything they think. A thought is but a thought and it’s not necessarily true.
Nothing is a problem unless it’s made into one. Think of the context of this simple yet profound sentence. Nothing, no matter what occurs is nether right or wrong, good or bad, or liked or disliked, unless it’s labeled in that way. Our life is controlled by our thoughts and our thoughts are based in a faulty foundation. The fault lies in the mind and the way it has been conditioned.
Listed are some of the ways it has been conditioned and if one gets quiet enough this will be seen. The car in front of me is going to slow, I have to go food shopping, I’m tired, my allergies are horrible, I’m bored, etc, etc, etc. All of these 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 be able to see beyond it. We would see what was really going on instead of what our conditioned thoughts we’re making up. It would be seen the car in front of us really isn’t going to slow, we are just being controlled by our undisciplined Conditioned Mind.
Learn to watch the nonsense that’s believed to be true, there’s so much of it, it’s hard to grasp. I mentioned one time to a person about the way we poison ourselves with tobacco products and his response was, he enjoyed them. This is insanity to enjoy poisoning yourself, but that’s the lie of a Conditioned Mind. People enjoy all sorts of things that are harmful to themselves, this also includes behaviors that harm others, and one’s own mind justifies it all. All I am saying is watch the thoughts that you think and learn how so many are based in lies to keep you in captivity to the Conditioned Mind. 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 and act on it, and really take notice if what you are thinking is true or if it is just a lie of your Conditioned Mind.
