The thoughts that makes you think.

Thinking is the proccess that helps us believe or disbelieve an idea, by not thinking - we have given up on ourselves.

The infinite space for thoughts is the mind, in order to explore all its dimensions we must use an elevated thought, for anything less will stop the elevation. Every paragraph is a complete idea, they do not continue onto the next one.

Someone asked me, where do you live? I said I live at the top. They replied, at the top of what? My answer was that I had found a home in the infinite space of my thought. To find this place I had wondered for many years through this vast space to find a place I could call home. I felt like I was a space traveler. I encountered many creatures which I had to overcome. There was fear that was very awesome, and there was hate and resentment plus there was depression and lack of confidence. Each one stood in the way of me reaching my home, at the top. But one by one they fell by the wayside and at last the path to that special place was clear, nothing was there to hinder me and so after many years of struggle, I was at the top.

I think of the human mind as being a very large apartment house, with many floors some people live on the first floor, second floor and so forth. A person can move to a higher floor by using an elevated thought. No one can move to a higher level, without this elevation. There are those that live in the penthouse, and there are many others who are striving to elevate themselves to that level. I have always tried to visualize myself as living in the penthouse of my mental realm and have always, hopefully, maintained an elevated thought. There are those of us who physically and mentally lives at the top and they have arrived there by using an elevated thought, and because of that, they are forever humble.

The priceless pearls of life that everyone is looking for, whether they are aware of it or not, has been enfolded with many layers of thought, and to find it, we have to take the unfolding path. You cannot be guided to it by its brilliance, because it is embedded too deep in thought. Therefore we will have to peel off its covering, layers by layer. The first layer will be the most difficult to remove because one has to remove self out of the picture, which is not an easy task. Removing the next layers will primarily deal with staying focused on diminishing the ego of self. I think some higher power placed it there, so that we would have to undergo some great effort to reach it. But once reaching it we will realize that the pearl was really the spiritual growth that we have achieved by striving to reach it.

A person cannot grow spiritually until he is conscious of the world around him and to achieved consciousness one must get rid of the ego. Once the ego is gone, the person becomes wiser, not to be confuse with knowing it all, and he becomes respectful, but not fear. Spiritual growth is a gift from a higher power; it gives comfort to the mind. Those who possesses it are humble and even with all their power; they showed respect to even the least powerful nations.

One day I was deep in thought, meditating, and as I was thinking, a window suddenly appeared in my mind. The window was smudged and needed to be cleaned, so I took a cloth of thought and wiped away some of the dirt. As soon as this was done, a brilliant ray of light entered through the window, and flooded my mind. As quickly as it came it left and the window was dark again. When the light was gone, it seemed as if my mind was cleansed as if I had taken a mental shower with a lot of foaming soap of thought. Sometime what we need in life is a mental shower of thoughts to wipe away layers of traditional thinking that smudged our minds.

There is one thought I would like to leave with you, and that is the identity of everyone is not physical, but instead mental. We are a compound idea of all the ideas that we have accepted in our minds through the years. So when you look at us, you do not see who we are because we are invisible to the eye. In order to see our identity, you must contemplate us and not just look at the housing. Many houses, no matter how they look, may have some beautiful people living in them. I do not presumed to know all the answers, but if a person gives less importance to ones physical self than ones spiritual self would become more apparent to the mind. Until then, you do not know the person, you only know the physicality that comprises ones image of self.

      There is such a beautiful magical quality about what you offer for us here. I agree with you absolutely. We need to a take a wider view of ourselves and see the whole of ourselves together. At least that's my take on what you offer here.

      LOL @ Teresa!

      Our thoughts are powerful things. I often find myself smack in the middle of a very bad mood, only to discover my thoughts are completely focused on the negativity. Finding a postive aspect, ANY positive aspect, gives me something to grab onto to pull myself out.

      I very much enjoyed your writing.

      That's a start Teresa  - we need to take advantage of the brain power - we hardly use any of it - including myself.

      Sometimes, I live under the sink. But then again, sometimes I'm the "madwoman in the attic." Thanks for getting me thinking.
