Daily Dose of Inspiration – Thoughts are Powerful

It has been estimated that we have about 60,000 thoughts per day and most are nothing more than habitual or redundant thoughts that enter our mind on daily.  But why let the same ideas and patterns cycle through our mind?  Choose your thoughts – most of the time we don’t – it’s easier and acceptable by many to run on ‘autopilot’.  The only time you are conscious is in the present. While in the present moment your thoughts are at the highest level capable of being. If you often find yourself living in the past or perhaps future “can be’s” it can be compared to  being on the ‘Merry-go-mind stream’. A constant swirling and whirling of thoughts anywhere but in the present. While in this state your thoughts are at the lowest state they can be.

  1. I agree – it takes a concentrated effort to stop thinking sometimes and to stop repeating the same thoughts. When I find myself thinking thoughts that are not empowering, I make myself stop, be quiet and just try to be present in the moment. Sometimes a gentle mantra helps me refocus. Thanks for reminding me I am not the only one who thinks too much.

    So true! I love the metaphor of a merry-go-round. It’s a great thing to remember to try not to let your thoughts run wild especially if they are not positive or productive for your life.

    I agree. I am a very focused person. When I am working on a project: i.e. my blog, book, etc. I do not like distractions. I block everything else out and compartmentalize my daily activities. I have to be organized or I cannot function. Love this post

    I recommend to anyone who sees this post to read an essay by Ralph Waldo Emerson called ‘Self Reliance.’ It has to do with trusting the familiar voice inside of you that is the spark to creative genius. One of the best things I’ve ever read.

  8. Yes thoughts are very powerful. As thoughts arise from the mind. ” Mind is everything, what we think we become ~ Lord Buddha” Thoughts lead to action and actions lead to the next step that ends up as our Destiny. We need to be mindful at all times. Many Blessings of Love and Light 🙂 ❤
