This site has been created to expand and share on some of the insights that led to the writing of It's Monday Only in Your Mind: You Are Not Your Thoughts.

Attached Thoughts

It’s important to notice your thoughts because even if what you do comes from a labeled place of love, this label produces the bondage of an attached thought which controls you like all attached thoughts…

If you can’t watch your own thoughts to decipher if they’re truly beneficial, hold on because you’ll be taken on the emotional ride of life. Not that life does anything directly to you, but the thought that arise determine the emotion. Noticing your attached thoughts is essential if you’re not to be controlled by them. Thoughts are a natural part of life, they will occur. As far as I know there’s no way of controlling the thoughts that arise, but I have found that noticing them allows for a split second of hesitation that can be used to decipher whether or not the thought is beneficial; remember attachment causes suffering, no matter how it’s labeled.

The Conditioned Mind is diabolical and unless there’s some awareness of how you are led around by your thoughts you will be controlled by them as if you were a puppet on a string. So subtle is this control that even if you are doing things that are labeled as loving, if this thought isn’t watched it will control you because attachment is attachment regardless of what label is applied to the thought. This is why the Conditioned Mind is diabolical because of its subtleness in using whatever it can to remain in control. This is also why it’s so important to notice your thoughts because even if what you do comes from a labeled place of love, the bondage this produces is that of an attached thought which controls you like all attached thoughts…
