Arisen Thoughts

Thoughts are a given, they’ll always be there. To think is human, but taking your thoughts to the next level to form concepts is when attachment arises as a belief thought to need life different…

If it’s not learned to just be with the thoughts that arise, they will control you. This is because of the conditioning of a mind that wants to push thoughts away and change them. How this works is, let’s say someone walks up to you and says something that you don’t particularly care for, immediately there’s attachment as there’s the thought of not caring for what was said, and where there’s attachment, there’s the tendency to react the way you always react when someone says something that’s not cared for. This is done again and again because of the conditioning in place. Someone says something you don’t care for and you wind up saying something back to them. What you do is take their dissatisfying thought and make it your own and then you throw your dissatisfied thought back at them. Now basically you are at war.

Thoughts aren’t right or wrong, there’s very little fact as to why they arise. The main thing is to allow their energy to remain free flowing so it doesn’t get bottled up and form a conditioned concept. These concepts are formed by attachment to mind patterns that change a simple thought into a story; the story being the thought needs to be changed. It’s not true your thought needs to be changed, but that’s what the conditioned energy does, it makes you believe a thought is unpleasant and a pleasant one would be better. This is energy that wants to push away when thoughts arise because it doesn’t understand they aren’t right or wrong, they are just what’s there, but you don’t have to attach to them…
