Think better

July 14th, 2014

Do you secretly wish that the whole world could be, well.. more like you?

Well the fact of the matter is that the whole world already is very much like you. Everything you see out there is also inside of you. The only difference is that you don’t act on the same thoughts that some other people do.

I could never understand how a parent could get to the point where they would throw their crying infant against a wall. I use to think that they were demented and that we had absolutely, positively nothing in common with each other. We were from different worlds.

And then I had my own children. I remember one night. It was early in the A.M. I had the flu and had been up for two straight days with my crying daughter. I desperately wanted to go to bed, to sleep. Nothing I could do would stop her crying and then it happened. The thought of just throwing her against the wall to stop her crying flashed across my mind.

It was the briefest of thoughts and quickly dismissed but it was there. It was a part of me. I felt somehow evil, bad, crazy, for even having that thought. Surely, a good, decent parent would never have a thought like that. And then I thought of how I had condemned others as so very different from myself.

You and I and seven billion others have our thoughts in common. What thoughts we act upon is what makes us uniquely us. Don’t spend another minute trying to understand why you think the thoughts that you do. Start consciously thinking the thoughts that elevate you mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Everything about us is a direct result of which thoughts we entertain and the thoughts we entertain are exactly the ones we act upon and those are the ones that define us. Think better to be better.
