    For means that serve aspirations greater than solely those of your own.

    I use thinking in my daily life when I'm watching various news/propaganda shows on the tube smile

    I use thinking and philosophy both in my every day life. But I would say precisely in executive management decisions that involves lots of money. I have to think, in the process do analysis of the situation and  then decide for the best options.

    This is a pretty broad question, and I'm thinking what you're looking for is something a little more pragmatic.  I look at this as a kind of backdrop to the actions and decisions I make daily.  Constantly, I find myself falling out of balance and its almost always because I've let my commitments get ahead of my intentions.  When used properly, there should be a deliberateness to our life plans that involve our thinking, how we view the world, what we believe in, etc.  I suppose it's like our system of values.  You can't filter every action and decision through that process every day in every way, but there's a regular review - whether its at the beginning or end of each day, or some other interval, that allows us to ensure there is congruency between our thoughts and actions.

    You can use "thinking" to make the world a better place, turn those thoughts into your philosophy, and apply the philosophy by doing good deeds on a daily basis.

    I try to think before I speak.  And think before acting on emotions.  I follow the philosophy of mindfulness so that I am mindful of my emotion, which decreases that chance that my emotions would hijack my thinking brain causing me to do or say things that I might regret later.

    Philosophy was once described as a blind man searching for a black cat in a dark room. By their very nature philosophical questions can not be answered. The thinker ponders the philosophical question and, if able, arrives at a reasonable answer. Once having accomplished that, the initial question transcends the philosophical and becomes the knowable. A better question might be, what is the difference between knowledge and wisdom - knowledge being the accumulation of what we learn, wisdom the ability to apply that knowledge in a productive, positive manner in our lives - I think!

    In moderate portions. The best way is to record some of those precious thoughts and assimilate them writing something that details your life experience.

    by knowing how and why works helps for me. so very many people put on false faces only to please others. in most relationships i see, one person is dominate and the other person subordinates themselves to make others "happy" or not to cause pain. fact is, there is constant pain/pleasure, support/challenge, peace/war, and so on in every moment.

    when someone makes me upset, then i know that they are fine, it is what i do not like about them that is reflecting back to myself what i do not love about myself i am challenged with. that instantly tells me i need some work done.

    while the "serenity prayer" is a nice platitude, it typically only "discharges" an issue, which will ultimately pop back up to deal with, where balancing out both sides of every and all events/people/situations will dissolve them and move us up in consciousness. being able to see both sides and finding the form of what we love is in is one of the main "tricks" to living a mastered life.
