The Powers You Really Have: Power to Think
“A man was sitting in coffee shop, drinking coffee looking outside as rain drops fell gently on the glass windows. All the while, thinking at the enormous rate of thoughts, about people in his life, his family, friends, suddenly jumping to the past, remembering old friends, playing cricket, suddenly to the current matches happening, suddenly thinking how he wanted to be a cricketer and now is doing something else, thinking to himself that’s how life is, maybe i should go abroad, now thinking about his future, how would life be? then thinking about his friends how are they, maybe i should call, suddenly, the waiter comes and asks “Sir, anything else?”.
The sudden question brings him back to the coffee shop, the present. This was just 30 seconds long thinking, there are 57600 seconds in the 16 hrs that you are awake, ofcourse if you are sleeping for 8 hrs a day.” We do automatic thinking for much of our time, same job, same past, same thoughts about the same people, things, desires and problems, same feelings, as if the same movie is running all the time in a theatre called mind.
Thoughts are the products of this power or ability called thinking. We create many thoughts we don’t act on and the ones we act on, we create many thoughts which we don’t believe are true and the ones we believe to be true, we create many thoughts which we believe with utter conviction and ones with utter disbelief, we create thoughts which create happiness and ones that create pain, we create thoughts which create a variety of emotions from sad to happy, from calm to rage, from confidence to anxiety.
What is true? which ones are true? Its a product of your power to think, you can make it true or false no matter what the world says, because its always a personal thing, your power. Just do this exercise: Can you imagine a pink elephant, remember your favourite song? the feeling you had when you had a major victory in life? can you tell how much you love your beloved, family? how do you feel now? if you did the exercise, you just used your power well, you would have felt good atleast if not great.
This brings us to our other powers, power to emote, that is to create feelings, feelings change all the time right? what is true then? maybe what you have just read has created some doubts, but if you think about many of the things you believed utterly as a child were false. Challenge your thoughts that create pain, sadness, fear, hopelessness, doubts, worries, knowing that it’s a product of your power, it’s not you. Practice your power everyday
Ask yourself these questions:
1. What do i really want?
2. Who am I?
3. What would i do if i practice my power to think and create something i want?
4. How can i view my life story differently, so that i am empowered instead of being dis-empowered.
Everyone’s on a hero’s journey.
