Just a Thought

I often wonder about the power of thoughts. Is it just a thought, are thoughts reality? I know that thoughts are not reality, yet it is so easy to allow negative thoughts to creep in and make us see it as reality. I for example at times, allow fearful thoughts to take over, making me believe something that’s not there. On the other hand, I know that even though I allow my thoughts to think of winning the lottery it just doesn’t happen that way!

Our thoughts are exactly that—thoughts. Thoughts are not our reality, and just because we have these thoughts does not mean that they’re true. The American psychologist and philosopher William James said that thoughts become perception, perception becomes reality. Your thoughts alter your reality. The world which we live in, its quality and character is nothing but a reflection of our own minds.

Whilst my thoughts become perception, those perceptions that cloud my mind and allow for thoughts to alter my reality, I should rather ponder about the positive and allow for those thoughts to cloud my mind…💭

Wonderful musing in reflection and thoughts

Clearing a clouded mind into hope and positivity

Prompting gently, washing away all negativity

 Thoughts shining through in wonderful, blissful reality

I believe in God, love and life! Married to my friend, mentor and rock. We have been blessed with two beautiful girls. My personal journey provides opportunities for me to empower individuals to lead better lives. I have had a real desire to work with people for a long time and have always been fascinated with human behaviour and understanding how the mind works.
I love the following quote by H. Jackson Brown, Jr. “Remember that children, marriages and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get”

Wow!! Such an abstract topic. Thoughts are really very realistic especially when they are intense. And as you said, they are nothing but reflections of our mind. And these reflections are how we perceive the world around us. A thoughtless person would be a… *thinks* …. maybe a tree?! 😅
What do you say?
P. S. Again I had to ‘think’ to know what a thoughtless person would be. No life without thinking, I think.
Good day!!

As I believe in the power of positive thinking, I know that these ideas are agreed upon in many cultures, and this is what said, Buddha:
“All that we are is the result of what we have thought.”

Thank you, Henrietta, for your thoughtful post.

You are spot on dear Henrietta. I love what you said and find it so true. Our thoughts have value, our perspectives may be entirely different as are our thoughts. I loved your poem at the end too Henrietta. Very lovely. Sending you a big hug and lots of love too. Blessings to your family as well. ❤️🤗🦋🌹

It is such an interesting post that makes sense. I believe that thoughts are the most powerful tool for the humans that what makes us the intelligent species on this planet. You’re right though – thoughts are not the reality. Thoughts are just thoughts that might often lead to ideas. The idea that perhaps make your brilliant thought ‘a reality’.
It’s just another perception from the fellow homogeneous species.
