So, there I was, thinking. I’m always thinking. But, there I was, thinking, why is it that we think? What makes us think? And when we think, are we really accomplishing anything? There is just always so much more to think about!
Thought is a natural process, forever ongoing in our minds. Thoughts can be utterly random or extremely focused. Glimpses of memories, studying for exams, forming master plans, random queries, ruminations and what ifs. In turn, all of these thoughts create feelings. Happiness, regret, sadness, despair, excitement, anticipation, curiosity, love, hate; only felt through thinking.
Can you remember a time when you weren’t thinking? You cannot. We are self aware through thought. We are individual and unique because of thought. This consciousness give us purpose. We think, therefore we are, and if we are, then we must prevail. Thinking gives us the ability to do so.
Now, what of dreams and thoughts? Dreams are thoughts. Subconscious manifestations of the psyche. For even in sleep our minds are at work. Sorting and compiling all of the thinking and all of the feelings.
New thoughts constantly in creation with the pondering of old thoughts. Thinking inspires new feelings, new dreams.
My question now, why would anyone NOT want to think?
