The mind of a writer

Updated on April 10, 2010
Great memories
Great memories
smiling faces
smiling faces

Every paragraph is a complete thought, they do not continue onto the next one.

Why do we smile? We smile because we’re happy, we smile because of our love ones, and we smile because of good memories. Unknown to the human race, a smile was placed deep in the consciousness of every individual by a great power, unknown to mankind. It was placed there for the purpose of brightening the life of the person. When I see people who are not smiling, for whatever reason, I think to myself that I should tell them about this. This smile, in my estimation, seemingly has some special power, and would dissolve any darkness that seems to permeate a person’s life. Sometime people ask me, you're smiling - what’s the joke? I replied that the joke is in my head, stored in great memories. 

Embedded deep within the consciousness of every human being is a mental diamond, which has a great power. This diamond is covered with many layers of hate, fear, prejudice and many other erroneous concepts. Its beneficial influence can never be experienced until all these layers of wrong thinking have been abolished. This jewel has the ability with its radiance to flood the mind and body of the person with the qualities of peace, health and wisdom. But this can only be achieved if the person maintains a sustain effort to dissolve these detrimental obstacles.

Many people do not visualize their consciousness as having a mouth and a stomach, but metaphorically they do. Anything that my mouth receives and digests is thought food. I know many people have heard the statement “Food for Thought”. After many years my stomach has become fat with a number of spiritually constructive thoughts, but it will never be full, because it has a limitless capacity, and will always be ready and able to receive and digest beautiful thoughts of a spiritual nature.

Killing two birds with one stone.

Killing two birds with one stone. I think of my body as being a choral system when engaged in an arrangement for a private orchestration, each part of my body functioning as a musical note, with my mind as the conductor. My main purpose as a conductor is to have the group perform as a complete harmonic unit, for any distortion would provoke a fast performance. In order to prevent this, I checked every note to see if they can produce quality sound for a long lasting performance. And when I am assured of its strength, my mind raises its mental baton and a symphony of melodic sound responds. With each level of my baton, a melodic sound repeats, forming harmonic notes. When this occurred, I felt certain that my embodiment of notes would always follow the harmonic direction of my mental baton and perform with an integrated oneness.

From a caterpillar to a butterfly
From a caterpillar to a butterfly

I had a dream the other day, I dreamed that I was talking to a caterpillar, and he said to me, that he was very sad that he couldn’t fly like a bird. That he always wanted to level up with the clouds in the sky, if he only had wings. I told him, that if he ate and digested the right foods and was respectful and kind to all of his fellow creatures, that one day he might fly. He said he would follow my suggestion. In the dream, I didn’t see the caterpillar for many years, but one day I was walking through the forest, and a voice from above called me and said, look I followed your suggestion, and when I looked up, there was a beautiful butterfly. The caterpillar had achieved his wish. I wanted to know what this dream meant, so I decided to tell it to a stranger who knows nothing about me. And when I explained it to her, she told me that I was the caterpillar. I thought for a minute and said but how can that be, I’m respectful and kind. She looked at me straight up and replied you can be kinder. She walked her way and I walked mine.
