70,000 Thoughts

70,000 Thoughts!!!
I remember being shocked when Dr. Amen mentioned that most of us have 70,000 thoughts A DAY!!! I can see how this would be possible, as there are over 100 billion brain cells. That is more than the stars in the sky (that we can see). Where do all these thoughts come from? How did I not know this?
My best guess is that as some race through the brain, they are classified as inconsequential, trivial or nonsensical. Some may race through so fast, we do not “catch” them. Some we may ignore. Some are fleeting. And, some capture our attention, for a moment. We identify others that speak “loudly” to us. They may give us creative new ideas, some hold answers to challenges we may be facing, some may be spiritual, calming, or filled with gratitude. Other thoughts lean toward the negative, taking us down a road of confusion, anger, fear, aggression, or arrogance. These and other dark thoughts have little or no value to us or our lives, and yet, they can linger, dominate our thoughts and waste our lives.
What thoughts do you permit to take over your life? Yes, we give thoughts the permission to lift us up, or destroy us. These are just thoughts, chemicals and electricity. They are fleeting, yet we can give them so much power.
Research has found that negative thoughts are harder to combat. Why is this? Only my opinion, but for centuries society, religion and tribal influences have been founded and based on negative thoughts. This is how masses were controlled. Religion warned of eternal damnation, society warned of strong consequences to disobeying rulers, tribal traditions made it clear that great confusion would come to those who did not keep the traditions. These thoughts have been imprinted on generation after generation of human beings. We have been carrying and passing on a legacy of  fear, anger, power and hate.
It is refreshing to live in a time, where we are slowly turning the ability to question this. We have been witness to a shift in consciousness that was only once reserved for spiritual “outliers”, such as Thomas Merton, Newton, Gibran, Haifa and Rumi. It just feels better to put into practice what has been declared by ancient and recent wisdom seekers as the real way to live. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate Oprah Winfrey’s OWN channel. How refreshing to start one’s week with her Sunday morning interviews with some of the great masters of spiritual/positive thought. It gets the conversation flowing regarding the meaning of life. Great stuff!!!! It is an historic shift in consciousness. As Spok would say, “fascinating”.

The negative continues to be extremely threatened by the positive. It is a battle that rages on the outside (the world) and the inside (our consciousness).  From personal experience and some wisdom that has been gathered along the way, positive thought has been well worth the battle.

Where we keep our brain busy all the time, it is necessary to have some time to give it relief for batter memories and work rapidly. Your tips are working a lot to enhance the scope of our thoughts through massaging our head.
