For my thoughts to be productive, profound and distinctive I have provided a relaxing comfy sofa in my mind for my thoughts to sit and contemplate.
Today it’s pondering why it’s been given a sofa. Normally it roams around crashing into my skull perplexed at life and the world around me. Why it can’t just take a seat and chill instead of giving me reasons, opinions, criticism and it’s normal almost belligerent dialogue, I didn’t know.
Then, once I realised it had been active and self opinionated for decades, it became apparent that I had quite a task ahead of me in controlling it. Then again I had to ask myself why I wanted to control it? How could I ask such a question when the question would be aimed at it, about it? Would it be responsive to such a question? Could it remain impartial and objective about itself, giving an independent opinion for something it’s not independent from in the first place? Such a conundrum.
The sofa I hoped would take the hard edge off my thoughts. I had hoped that removal from its virtual soap box would bring a sense of serenity. A time for reflection, with a considered experienced view replacing the usual quick ill thought out responses should be reachable. A less critical and a more understanding approach to assimilating wise views was my perceived intention.
What I didn’t want was for my thoughts to be so laid back and relaxed that it would kill, independent views and well considered thought out answers making me look inconsistent and uncaring. Come to think of it, maybe an exercise bike would have been a better idea.
Well let’s just see what happens.
