It is easy to consider all our thoughts as our friends, because we have been with them for so long. However, much as some of these thoughts are either positive guides, creative ideas or progressing memories, there are others that appear in our consciousnesses with intent to bring us down.
The question is, how do you know which thoughts to trust? Some thoughts might be negative but guiding. How would you differentiate between thoughts that are positive and those that are disempowering? Furthermore, do you really need thoughts to survive? How often do you take action that is being guided by thoughts? To simplify, do you ever think about something at the very moment you are doing it? For the most part, you might be doing something and thinking about something else–the past or the future. For example, do you ever drive, if you drive, thinking, “Oh now I am stepping on my breaks. Now I am engaging another gear. Now, I am stopping….etc..” You get the point.
Note that our actions are retrieved from our memories. Our behaviors are retrieved from our subconscious minds. The conscious mind, which is also the doorway to thoughts is used to experience and express whatever is already in the subconscious. So, you realize that your consciousness doesn’t really require you to think, because you already have the programs and memories you need to operate. And if you need to replace these programs, this is when you think of new ways to improve them. This also implies that you don’t need to think to live. But you need to be alive in order to think. You don’t need to think to be. But you need to be in order to think. You don’t need to think to be conscious. But you need to be conscious in order to think. So, you come before your thoughts. Your thoughts can’t exist without you: meaning that you are superior.
Do you know that you even if you felt stuck and didn’t know what to do, you wouldn’t really need to think about it? The more peaceful way is to be thoughtless, empty, which is when your inner guidance will reveal your next course of action. And although this might come in a form of a thought, it will have an energy of purposefulness and inspiration about it.
Going back to the question in the title; Do you trust your thoughts or yourself? My conclusion is, I trust myself first, then my thoughts. What are your views?
