Our brains have the same makeup, but different—as we are—in what it can do for us. Our thoughts are one of them. There is no restriction on the thoughts that we think. There is a limit on the thoughts that we have. It is not the same for any of us. It depends on what you have in your world to think about. You will not have a thought about a thing you do not know a thing about. There are no equal rights of thought. We do have the sole privilege to think the thoughts that we have. And that is with no known limit. Now, of course, we are not all an Einstein.
The world we live in is the thing that determines our thoughts. Our thoughts come to life based on how we perceive what we see, hear and feel. We are taught how to think no matter the genes we may have been gifted with. We do not teach ourselves. We learn from the many teachers in our life. Some of them are not good thinkers—unfortunately—and are just passing on what they were taught. This way of thinking flows from one generation to the next. It is much a part of what we have to live with. Whether we choose peace or war, love or hate, empathy or indifference, it is how we think. Well, whatever is handed down to us we then try it on our own. As we grow and develop, we decide what to think. Even so, what we think will be influenced by what we were taught in our formative years.
If you want different thoughts to think, you have to open your world to more things. You have to meet more, or different people, go to places you have not been and do things you have not tried. If you hold back, you will continue to think what you have always thought and do what you have always done. Even our imagination has its roots in what we know. It cannot run away with you on its own. The dreams that we have are no different; though, you may find it difficult to believe with the dreams that you have.
There are many things that someone can do for you but thinking is not one of them. Though people we know, some we just met and even a few we have not, will try. For them to do so, they would first have to know your thoughts. There are some things that we have, which belongs to no one but us. They are our thoughts. And we cannot have a thought about things we do not know to exist. We think based on knowing. There is no limit, but not all thinking is the same.
When I say to think a thought, what I mean is, thought and thinking are not always the same. A thought is just a thought until you think it. Think of a thought as being inert, not doing a thing from when you have it, until you think of what you want to do with it. The time between the two is so short, there is no way to measure. Another thing, when someone says, I know what is on your mind, well, of course, they do not.
We are yet to know when someone has a thought or what they are thinking. And there is good reason we do not. We know them by what they say and do. We were not given the ability to read minds. If you are wondering why not, just think if you knew what is on the minds of the people you know and lack wise, they could read your thoughts. The things we would do to each other are unimaginable. It cannot be possible if we are to continue to exist as we are or at all.
Thought is not only what you had. It is also, what you have. You thought and you have a thought. A thought cannot be forced. To try to do so is called thinking. Once we have a thought, we think it or it moves to our memory. It will not be undone. It is the same as it is with life. The life we have lived cannot be changed. What exist to us is all we know. And we decide what we are going to do with it. Think about this.
Say you are walking down a long and winding road and along the way, you meet me. You will have a thought based on your perception of me and others “like” me. This is the first thing that will happen. You will then think about us. If you like what you see, you may proceed; though, with caution. If you do not feel safe, you may go in another direction. Or you may not have strong feelings either way. No matter how you feel, your feelings will be based on what you think. And you will act according to how you feel.
We perceive, have a thought, we think, we feel we act. That is the course of an action process as my thinking tells me.
In the Beginning
Creation is the breath of life from which we evolve. Parents create our life. They prepare, or not, the way for us. An offspring does not evolve to the world. They are born. Then it is for us to be who we are meant to be. We are how we survive.
I do not consider myself a religious person because I am not. I am just a spiritual person that believes in God, The Creator. I have had thoughts about where did it all come from. As I am sure, many of you have. A line has been drawn and sides have been taken on the matter of evolution vs. creation. The beliefs are just as strong for both arguments. On one side, we have those who believe in creation and the other, are those who believe in evolution. Each is steadfast in their beliefs. Well, I subscribe to both with an emphasis on creation.
Creavolution is what gives life its shape, from when it begins to the end. We are all created from it. This is through the Creator of all life and all things. It is how life flows. First, there was creation. Then all things evolved. Creation and evolution are the two forces that are one with all life all the time. It is the new, which was created, and all things that evolved from it. We evolve when our needs are met.
The purpose of life is to go forward and procreate. It is what keeps us going. What else we do is up to us. We were created to evolve to create. And Creavolution is how it is done. All things must first be, to grow and become. Growth starts when life begins and Creavolution is what gives life its shape, from when it begins to when it ends. We are all created from it. This is through the Creator of all life and all things. It is how life flows. First, there was creation. Then all things evolved.
We evolve when our needs are met. All that we need was here before us, as it is for all creatures. We have to be taught how to meet our needs. That is, if we are to survive. Many of us are not taught well. So, we have to do our best to make the best of what we do have. We have to survive until we know better. A place must be prepared for us. Nurturing and caring has to be a part of that plan. The needs of life must be there for life to grow. I will prepare a place for you.
To have evolved when not a thing came first, will not answer the question of life. Evolve is what we do once we are here. It is not the answer. The answer is in the act of creation. And it speaks for the Creator. You have to believe it to see it. When you see it, you will know. These are the things that I believe. It is about life; it is about Creavolution ™. This means we were created to evolve. Creation and evolution says it all, they are the combination that is life. You cannot have one without the other.
Why You Feel The Way You Do
You may ask, as many do, what is it that motivates some people to do some of the things that they do. The best way to know the answer, is to know it when you see it. You are the gatekeeper of your mind and it is how you think. I look at the world through the lens of my life. What I say now and what I will be saying is less academic than it is my experience and spiritual Self. I simply look at life in a way others have not. And you have to see it to believe. You have to listen to learn and learn to listen.
What I have to say is not fiction, though it does come from the realm of my mind. I did not ask for it. I turned my mind around and it was there. What I think, feel and say it is about life and the parts of the whole that are our existence. You have not heard it before for it has never been told. I will say much and little about many things and my energy will come from you. I need to know how you think about what I think. To see, you must look. You may see the answer that has eluded you. And you just may meet the person you have for so long wanted to know; the real you. “Your Self.” If your mind is yet closed and not found the vision to see you, you may let go enough to see someone you know and possibly love. Or perhaps you will think of a troubled soul who you have seen act out his or her hurt and pain in all the wrong places when there seemed to be no apparent reason for their behavior. It all comes down to how you think.
Through growth and enlightenment, you can change the course of your life, if that is what you need or want to do. Life’s greatest question is why. Why we think, feel and act the way we do. And the irrefutable answer is; “It Is How You Think.” And if how you think is disordered your life will be the same. When your mind and how you think is the cause of your hurt and pain, you have to change how you think. How we think is the root cause of our negative feelings. I did not always know that I knew what I know now. It is not knowledge until you understand and you cannot put it to its best use until you have the ability to do so. I did not have to seek it out; it just came to me from a power greater than all others. You will know for yourself. I will share what I know with those who will listen.
The more you listen, the more you will understand what it is that you hear. You are sure to think, and feel what you hear if you listen. There will be truths that will cause you to change how you perceive the world around you. This is good. It will challenge the way you think about you, which will allow the “real you” to come through. You will know the truth for what it is. The truth tells all when it is told. It is what we have to depend on. The truth is the fabric of which life is formed. It is about how we view the world that each of us lives in. Is what you know the truth? Or is it what you have been given to believe. Your world is not just what is around you. It is also what is in your mind, and the things that go on in your head. Have you not had thoughts about why you feel the way you do.
What is said and done here will be a reference and starting point to the rest of your life. It is a way to look at the true nature of what is and how it came to be. Change may be a stranger. As you step closer, you may see a friend, for after all “It Is How You Think.”
Why Did I Let You Distract Me
There are reasons why you let things distract you. This is if you know it or not. When a thing distracts you, it can be good or it could be bad. It all depends on your thoughts. If a thing distracts you when you have good thoughts, it is not good. If a thing distracts you, when your thoughts are not good it is a good thing. What you do next makes the difference. When you find a person, place or even a “thing” to be attractive to you, a connection has been made. It is by way of a preference that you have. And it is a thing you like that has a strong pull. You must decide what it means to you. Our preferences are based on how we view our wants and desires. They are subject to change as our mind does.
What distracts some the most is when they think of what others might think of them. Then they try to change things about themselves. They try to change how they look, how they dress and how they do what they do. A Change in makeup will not change who you are. The Self is your makeup. It is the soul of a person, it is who you are and it does not change. New makeup is not what you need. An overhaul of how you think and how you feel is what you need. How we feel will change how we act and view the world around us.
Let how you act be the face that you show the world. Do not let how you look speak for you. It is only meant to be a compliment to who you are. Makeup and a getup will not keep you up. When how you look does not match your inner Self, it creates pressure. You have to try to act the way you look. The Self can only come out when the outside is in. How you feel, then, depends on how you look and it grows with time. It is how you think that does not allow you to be the real you. You have done too much when what you do cause you to act and look like who we are not.
There are things that disrupt the flow of our thoughts. We rather they did not. They do not distract from what you do, these things disrupts what you are doing. Disrupt and distract are not the same. They are not of equal magnitude. One is merely you being interfered with. The other is to have your attention drawn away from what you are doing. Then there is a reminder, which can be useful and serve a good purpose when still needed. But when not can be a disruption. It depends on if it was turned on when it should have been turned off. This will happen when we let ourselves be reminded still, when we no longer need to be. It does not matter what you are doing; “turn it off” when there is no longer a need. An example would be if you left the alarm on when you have no reason to get up.
On a more serious note is when we allow ourselves to be reminded of things long past that serve no useful purpose in our life today. A memory from our childhood can be one of them. Though, I have found that a reminder is just what you need when you want to make sure to remember.
