Wouldn't it be the most fantastic thing if you could consciously block your thoughts? Possess the ability to turn them off with the flip of a switch, leaving nothing but empty dark space up there?
The power of the mind...it can make you, or break you.
Our minds can build possibility from improbability, devise intriguing scenarios, transport us to different places and times, reconstruct the past, and imagine the possibilities of the future. There is no end to the list of things we can accomplish in our mind.
Yet for all of the joy the mind can bring, sometimes we're plagued with thoughts we don't understand, thoughts beyond our control. You have to wonder why the mind allots important time and energy to something unexplainable, something unattainable, something keeping you awake at night, and something drifting into your thoughts during the day no matter how often, or how hard you try to beat them down.
Could it be that all of those unexplainable and illogical things are being forced to the front of our minds by our all-knowing subconscious? Does it understand our deepest desires when our conscious mind won't allow it because it doesn't make sense to our rational brain?
"The subconscious mind is a composite of everything one sees, hears and any information the mind collects that it cannot otherwise consciously process to make meaningful sense."
Maybe the explanation doesn't exist, maybe not everything has to make perfect sense.
It's impossible not to wonder.
