The most endangered species – Thinking

You see, everyone has thoughts–and they mistake those for “thinking.” Thoughts just arrive, unsummoned, and pass through your mind. They’re in the atmosphere surrounding us (AKA the resonant field). You didn’t even choose probably 99% of the thoughts you have. They just show up, uninvited. Thinking on the other hand is deliberate, active, willful and at least somewhat aware–though not necessarily “awakened.”

You look at a situation and you say, “let’s think about this.” However, if automatic thoughts are getting confused with your attempt to think–there really is no thinking, not really. Well, there is certainly not Awakened Thinking. What is “Awakened Thinking”? Thinking that is free of all bias, prejudice, conditioned automatic reactions, belief systems, political party lines, and dogmatic, automatic intellectual ideas that are outdated “knowledge.”

Why do we need Awakened Thinking? That’s easy. Just read the daily “news” headlines. Does it boggle your mind that the United States Congress has such difficulty creating viable solutions to the debt ceiling and related economic problems, in ways that can serve and work well for everyone? I cannot say it boggles my mind. I do find it frustrating. However, when you see how the “old world view” has conditioned an Either/Or reality, you can certainly understand and even have compassion for how there is an “appearance” of thinking–but no real Awakened Thinking. When you see this you begin to see the absolute necessity to not only “save” or preserve our most endangered species–thinking–you see the necessity to take it to a new place–Awakened Thinking. That is what this blog is all about. Would love your comments.

    i am learning to distinguish “thoughts” and “thinking”, in the same way i came to understand that “feelings” and “emotions” are not the same thing… a big “aha” for me. As an empath, i learned to ask, “Is this “feeling” mine or someone else’s?” which helped me to stop reacting in automatic Least-Action Pathways, and be able to respond with integrity and compassion for myself and others. i believe being aware of “thoughts” in a similiar way aids in discerning the choices we have by taking that time to “pause”, before we accept and take into our being such that may not be in our highest good, as our own as a “victim” of circumstance. This is very empowering, centering and grounding in that responses then are made in a vibrational state of love, rather than reactions made in a state of fear.

  2. Yes, I see my friends and business associates thinking with unawareness. They certainly do not achieve as much. I am glad I have been learning the differences between “wakened” and “unaware” thinking. When I catch myself with “unaware” thinking or Least-action Pathways behavior, at least I know how to interrupt these patterns that are not useful. I have been trying to get more of my friends involved. 3 of them have already bought the book. It is a great pleasure for me to be able to “leap” from one state of mind to a higher state of mind.
    Yes, the members of Congress need this training also.

  3. I’ve seen the same “unawareness” all over the place and then I notice the insecurity that follows. It is quite interesting to see all this happen. It reassures me that people who appear to have it together, really don’t. I have really felt left out of life until I started to to be aware of all the little details, because I couldn’t relate. Now life is much more enjoyable to experience because of the distinguishing.
