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.

Thought Control

It’s imperative to learn to be aware of your thoughts because if what you do comes from a labeled place, this label produces the bondage of a blind thought which controls you like a puppet on a string…

If there isn’t awareness of your own thoughts to decipher which ones are truly beneficial, hold on because you’ll be taken on the ride called life. Not that life does anything directly to anyone, but thoughts arise and they determine what kind of ride you will be on. Being aware of your thoughts is essential if you’re not to be controlled by them. Thoughts are a natural part of life, they will arise. As far as I know there’s no way of controlling what thought arises. I have found that being aware of them allows for a split second hesitation that can be used to decipher whether or not the thought is beneficial. And remember, attachment to any thought causes suffering no matter how it’s labeled.

The Conditioned Mind is diabolical and unless there’s some awareness of how controlling your thoughts actually are, they will control you 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, the label will eventually control you. And remember bondage is bondage 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 imperative to learn to be aware of your thoughts because if what you do comes from a labeled place, this label produces the bondage of a blind thought which controls you like a puppet on a string…
