The Quest For Knowledge

Updated on January 10, 2013

Begins Here

You don't need the famous Internet for this one

Good bye World Wide Web

Start thinking with just one thought

Develop that thought like it was the only one you have in your mind

Work it

Make every thought you think after focused on just that same thought

Make lists of ideas so later you can think and expand on every new thought

For now stay focused and concentrate

Bring every emotion you have into play

Feel the energy travel through your body like a fast moving train

You have one destination and one goal in mind

Create your new world around such a thought

Any thought that leads you away dismiss

You are not one to stray

Feel confident and sure of yourself and what you are doing is right

Positive thoughts bring postive results

Negative thoughts can only bring you down and cause harm

You are expanding your life and all the thoughts that come after

Example time

I want to exercise

That is my first thought

Now I will focus on exercise like it is the only thought in my mind

Why haven't I done it lately

No time

That could be true

Maybe I just didn't want to

What are the real reasons behind what I think

In the past week I can't believe I didn't have the time to exercise

Not even once a week

I find it boring

O.k. now we are getting somewhere

The truth comes out

I don't want to go to the gym and work out then have to go get a shower

Lazy again

I am comfortable

I can do it another time

Well all this is true

Now lets think of why we exercise

To stay healthy and live a long life

Now that we put it in the right perspective we might want to change our mind

If you don't exercise now you most certainly will pay for it later

Maybe for years to come

Lets look at it differently

What if I try to exercise just going for a walk

Then come home even after a half hour

My day will not of changed much and I still can do what I want

But my future might be changed forever

How great is that

That is something to think about

I do love a nice shower

Then maybe after a shower I will get dressed up and go out to eat

Don't forget to eat sensibly and try to pick healthy choices

We don't want to defeat our purpose

Well that's all for today and we have found new knowledge and answers we didn't know before

Welcome to a happier and healthier life both in mind and in body

      Dan Barfield I appreciate your great explanation and you make me feel great pride that I did all that.You said it so much better than me.I think I just got lucky.I would love to share and hear so many more of the ways you have made a difference.I just learn by trial and error.So many people can't be bothered with change.They just don't care.It is so refreshing to see such a positive attitude and energy that soars off the paper.You push me to write on with so many more reasons to live the happiest life.Thanx so much for sharing and may your day go well and hope you succeed beyond your wildest dreams.

      Superb! This is so-called 'positive re-appraisal' in action! Way to go spreading these healthy thinking patterns! I have done this successfully myself and am fully behind the spreading of this meme. We all know what good behaviours we should undertake to improve our lives... Why don't we do them? Actively confronting the unspoken arguments we give ourselves for being inactive and then countering them with positive arguments to continue on with the positive actions is a great way of getting things done! Voted up!

      Dim Flaxenwick You should know me by now.You not only can do what you want but you do it every day.When we wake up we tell our bodies what to do and tell our minds what to believe and think.I have read your lovely writings and you do what you want.You write with such beauty.Don't get me wrong each day we should tweak a little bit to make it better.This way we don't get bored and tired of the same old thing.If we want to change we will.If we don't we have to be happy where we are or we would of fixed our lives.I write to share and an attempt to give back to my world that gives me so much.Many times I go on deaf ears.Many other times I sit with a lonely tear in my eye.Then there are special times like this where I have a close friend read something I wrote and it makes me so happy inside.How can I explain that.I am not sure but I will try for the rest of my life doing the best I can.Thanx for reading and sharing.Wishing you a day filled with endless spirit and energy.

      You did a great job, here, Dream On.

      You have me believing I can do anything if I really want to.

      Excercise will be a very good start. Thank you. Take care.

      epigramman All I can say is Thank You from my heart.I know not where I go.I just want to sing ho,ho along the way.Being cheery and seeing the birds sing.The squirrels run and jump from tree to tree.I have heard man and nature go together.I aim to prove it by seeing it first hand.Practicing the real life connection between man and animal.A bond that is around us all the time.Now when it comes to other human beings and sharing the world and all it's treasures.There should be no hesisitation or reservation.Just pure friendship that can lead us into extraordinary lives all of our days.To miss any opportunity would be a life truely lossed.So as I start my day and work later for the next twenty years before I can retire.But for now I do my best to enjoy work and any free time I call play.My writing time happens to reflect all the lessons I am learning and all the people I meet in my travels.I grew up with Gulliver Travels and now I turn it into Michael Travels.The world is my oyster and I have to keep checking to find the pearl.Sometimes I lose people so I am going to stop before the guys in the white coats find me.(lol).Have fun and do everything your heart desires. With one rule as long as it helps others and not hurts anyone.

      epigramman I am thrilled with such a nice compliment.I take my hat off and greet you with a huge smile.Your words our special just as every day that the sun rises and sets.I am always learning and listening to others.Many times in my life I slowly go where others have been.To me it is a world so different than most.It is filled with excitement and endless joys.Many people curse the day they were born.I count my blessings and try to take in every emotion and thought along the way.Life is to precious to waste.Even though it might take me years to go where others go in an instant.I am so thrilled to be in the same world at the same time experiencing so many fascinating things simultaniously why wouldn't I be in a state of complete shock.Well that"s my way of saying I am lucky to be alive and well and everything after that is like ice cream on my cake.Have a beautiful night and may all good things come during the night.

      I love the way you write with poetic philosophy in this profound monologue style but you are also speaking directly to your readers about what is going on in that fine mind of yours - hubbravo for writing without pretense and speaking/writing a lanugage that we can all understand clearly and directly - lake erie time ontario canada 12:35pm

      GypsyRose Lee I agree 120%.If we make mistakes don't beat ourselves up( as I usually do) just correct the problem and move on.If we keep trying to do better the outcome has to be better.Eiddwen Living a wonderful life is in the plan.There may be many setbacks or bumpy dirt roads that take us no where.Then again when we are on the right track there is no better feeling in the world.Thanx to you both I am having a better day already.
