The last few months or so have been about self-reflection. Many have wondered what most of my facebook posts have been about. "Today's theme" what? It is my way of paying attention to what has been recurring as incidences, reminders and thoughts in that day. I realised that as we go through life, a big disconnect forms between what our heart says and what our mind says. As a result of this dissonance, there is a level of conflict and frustration one feels on a daily basis. What I have discovered is, emotions don't lie. If I am courageous enough to look at the emotions I feel after I think certain things and examine it, my answer about how I feel about those things I think is there. And there is no room for confusion. Easier said than done, but practise makes perfect, isn't it?
As I was mulling over this, I made something the other day, I didn't think much of it as I made it, and then suddenly, the phrase "you are the captain of your ship" popped into my mind. And I realised that I had indeed made something that could look like a boat. I am sure that as I was deep in thought, my brain was processing everything that was going on and that it was not by accident that "you are the captain of your ship" popped into my mind and not something else.
This brain of ours. So powerful with the capacity to go in so many ways; shape our lives and create so many possibilities. Good and bad. I guess the difference between how life turns out is whether you choose for life to be a certain way as opposed to being resigned that life is a certain way. And when that happens, a powerful brain creates a powerful being. And all this, just by thinking powerfully by choice.
