| Thinking 21
What is our usual, automatic mode of thinking? For many of us, it entails various blends of overthinking about concerns and worries, and experiencing their resulting emotions, such as anxiety, fear, depression and anger. It can also include habitual ism’s, such as ageism, sexism, racism, judgmentalism and cynicism, as well as conditioned thoughts, bias, intolerance, reactivity and so on.© Aaron John Beth’el Solutions
With this in mind, we realise that we are wasting large amounts of our time on earth on auto-pilot, and will probably want to begin to change our usual mode of thinking.
We can begin, by simply returning our focus to the present moment, and then start to consciously focus on either the feeling state of joy, or on communing with the ultimate peace, oneness, and humane nurturing of planet earth, rather than dwelling subconsciously upon negative states. In this way we consciously return to our true nature.
Furthermore, if we do not have an internal focus to return to, such as joy, then we will tend to have a fluctuating mental and emotional life.
However, if negative states return, we can ask ourselves, “Does it matter?” And we will find that nearly all of it does not matter, and we can let it go, and return to joy, or communion with earth.
In this way we can live with greater calm, acceptance and contentment in life, and at the same time heal our mental, emotional and even physical state, whilst sharing this to help and heal others. Hopefully with practice, we can make this our new and improved, usual mode of thinking.
