Power-fuel for Your Mind!

It is hard to imagine letting a stranger into our homes or letting people we know bring junk into our sanctuaries and just leaving it there. No one would tolerate that.

But we are so careless about what we let into the space that houses all of our thoughts, beliefs and emotions…our minds!

…Easy Lent Step #2

Be selective about what we feed our minds!

info

Being selective is one of the keys that unlocks the door of serenity and focus. When we are selective about what we absorb intellectually, we can see things clearly and gain focus and control over our lives. Too many of us exist bombarded with a constant stream of useless information wrapped up in pretty packaging. We allow it to flow uncensored into our homes, lives and brains. This type of exposure causes an almost “hypnotic” state as we are lulled into complacency by the fiction of what we see and hear. How can we, during this state of complete vegetation, think clearly on our own? It is no surprise that many of us are exhausted at the end of our days. Our brains have been assaulted every waking second.

During this Lenten journey, we should be mindful of what we read, see or hear. Think about what we feed our minds. Any intellectual diet that does not support our growth or enjoyment of life and any that appeals only to our most primitive instincts should be eliminated during this detox.

Only consume things that inspire, teach, provoke thought, or emotionally enrich us. These are the super foods that will provide power-fuel for our minds!

And sorry, but no Kardashians are allowed in your living room while you take this journey! 🙂

  1. Wise words . . . Kardashians, who? I had a stone mason work on my house in Marrakesh called Kardashian and he told me this name actually means of the stone mason family . . . cool eh?

  2. I really like to stay in contact with your post; But i obtained this ‘like’ not to be (too) selective in the first degree . Ops what does he mean 🙂 . I believe something else could be also true. I believe we have to absorb all of it as much as possible and use this impressions to our intellectual , emotional benefit and rational convenience .Doing it like this , helps you to give a shape, a balance or a reference what you are really like in this matrix . So the art of nowadays life is to be having a freedom of choice. You can only choose if you are able to choose; This ability can be happening not to be selective and explore the potential of all these things. The mechanism to be selective will be done anyway per definition of our own mind. But at least it was established knowing the fact that one experiences a lot of not interesting things . For me at least ,it realizes the value of my selection and that makes me powerful. That is only me 🙂

  3. By the way , the way you brought your boots into that image of you , I do like , Some nice and attractive detail The colors of the room in balance your fashion.

  4. Extraordinary thoughts! I often find it hard to connect with people today because they are so fixated on unstimulating, useless jargon and entertainment. They tend to have a false sense of life and beauty in general. Knowledge and broadening our minds is essential to getting the most out of life.

  5. Very true. I am a big Sherlock Holmes(Sir Arthur Conan Doyle) fan and your post brought this quote to mind:
    “I consider that a man’s brain originally is like a little empty attic, and you have to stock it with such furniture as you choose. A fool takes in all the lumber of every sort that he comes across, so that the knowledge which might be useful to him gets crowded out, or at best is jumbled up with a lot of other things, so that he has a difficulty in laying his hands upon it.”
