What Is the Right Use of Thought?
- Ego will help you to recognize, remove, and replace your ego: a.k.a. self-esteem.
Master or Slave of Your Self-Talk?
- Master your self-talk, master yourself.
- That is the message above.
- The message below is to be free of self-talk.
- Experiment and try both.
Where & When to Think?
J. Krishnamurti often explored the problem of thought interfering with and taking over life. Krishnamurti also talked about thought having its right time and place. Let me offer some insight into understanding one time and place where thought should not be allowed.
- Thought has no capability to sense, perceive, or even to think. Thought is a result, not a cause. One of the consequences of these facts is that thought cannot experience. And since thought cannot experience, then thought cannot come into contact with life, have a relationship with life, or discover truth.
- Thought cannot see you. Thought cannot experience you. Thought cannot capture you to kill you as some thought, image, or thing. Thought cannot make you become a thought. Thought cannot transform you over time from being one thought into being another thought.
Any thought about who and what you are will never be who and what you are. Your thinking about who and what you are is not you. Your thinking about who and what others are is not them. Your thinking about what your life is, is not your life.
Therefore, all your self-talk is nonsense, that is about no one and nothing. Your self-talk is Maya, illusion, dream, delusion, fog, cloud, wall, ego, self-esteem, pride, shame, and the block that is in-between you and reality. It is your self-talk that prevents you from rediscovering and recontacting reality with the singleness, seriousness, and selflessness of a little child.
- Self-talk is one of the wrong times and places for thought. Negate your self-talk.
