“Give them a fish and they eat for a day, teach them to fish and they eat for a lifetime.” — Lao Tzu
To tell a person what to think will not teach them how to think. We are how we think.
This is the place for those who have felt the hurt and pain of rejection for how they think. It grows from our childhood. No matter whom you are where you are from or how you look, how you think will be how you act. There are many among us who think they know why they feel the way they do but they do not. When not all is right and you think it should be, and you see no reason it should not, it is how you think. And much of what we think today has its roots in what happened to us “yesterday.” To understand this, you have to understand what disordered thinking can do to the mind. How it affects our life and takes us further away from our true Self. I will show you why and how this might happen. And there will be times when I will do this in a not so conventional way.
Some of my posts, I am certain, will cause you to wonder, what does this have to do with how we think. And my answer will be, all things we do require us to think, if you know it or not. What I have to say will challenge some of the things you have come to believe as certain truths. It will take you up, around and back again. I will on occasion step into the deep end. I will have my say in whatever way that will say what I have to say. Wherever the road leads, I will follow. I want to know how you think and I will know by how you think about how I think. Let me know what you have on your mind. Nothing you say is off-limits, because, after all, it will be how you think. Who are you, do you really know. Are you, you, or are you the product of someone else’s invention.
Through this blog, we will address many of the issues that revolve around why we think the way we do. We will look to see how changing the way you think will change how you feel and relate to the people, places and things in your life. That becoming the true person you are meant to be will give you the vision to see what really is, not what you may have thought it to be. It is my hope that you will come to a better understanding of your thoughts and your thinking process just as I have come to know the real me. I am talking about the person who I was created to be. Because for sure, you have to be you and I have to me. When you try to be someone you are not you are no one until you find yourself again. Life is made better, or worse, by how we think.
This will not only better the lives of those who follow “It Is How You Think,” but also those who are touched by those who do. My goal is to provide the tools that will help you change the way you think; therefore, how you feel and act. It is a new day and a new way. If you, a family member or friend has been touched in any way by childhood trauma or otherwise mishandled by others in your life, this is the place to be. What you see here will take you where you have never been before and will help you see where you thought you were, is not where you were at all. It is about change, change in how you think not to tell you what to think. Before you can be helped, you have to help your Self. There is no therapy, counseling, medication or advice that will be effective until you do. When I say you, I am talking about the Self, your Self, her Self and him Self, all of us.
What we do here is important. It will guide you through what it takes to live a better life by the examination, and understanding, of your thoughts and how to think them. It will reveal how disordered thinking is the root cause of negative feelings and behavior. It shows the Self as it is meant to be. You will relate to and recognize a part of yourself that you have only known in passing. What you will hear if you listen will open up a way of thinking that will allow you to become the person you were meant to be.
The body and the mind both have the ability to heal themselves, but the body put up the least resistance.
