A Difficult Choice

The Thinker

Daemon, what are you thinking about?

Stuff.

Are you getting anywhere with your thoughts?

No.

What kind of thoughts are you choosing to entertain?

I don’t choose my thoughts.

Yes you do.  You choose your thoughts.  This is the beginning of awareness.  When you become aware that you have thoughts and that you can choose what to think about, you become powerful.

Most people don’t choose their thoughts.

I know, they let outside forces control their thoughts.  Don’t do that.  Take control of your mind right now.  Otherwise you become a slave to outside forces without even knowing it.

Okay, how do I choose my thoughts?  What choice do I have?

You can choose between elevated thoughts or demoted thoughts.

What are elevated thoughts as opposed to demoted thoughts?

A demoted thought sounds like this:  “I need to buy this product in order to feel better.”  An elevated thought sounds like this:  “I need to relax to find peace.”  The lower frequency thought seeks physical pleasure.  The higher frequency thought seeks spiritual joy.

I just want to be happy.

Listen.  Both your body and your spirit wish to be elevated.  Your mind is caught in the middle.  When you elevate your body, you bring down the spirit.  When you elevate the spirit, your body feels let down.  So when you elevate one, the other one lowers.  You have to choose which one you wish to elevate.  From the moment you wake up in the morning until you fall asleep at night, you are in a struggle to gratify either your body or your spirit.

I don’t have much choice, I have to keep my body alive.

Keeping your body alive doesn’t take much thought.  After you are finished taking care of your body, what do you do with the rest of your day?  Do you think of ways to elevate your body even more or do you think about promoting your spirit?

Promoting my spirit?

Yes, to promote means to boost, upgrade, raise, advertise your spirit instead of your body.

Why would I want to promote my spirit?

Promoting your body might bring you short-term pleasure, but promoting your spirit will bring you long-term happiness.  You choose where you want to dedicate your thoughts.

Hmm…  tough decision.

Are you being sarcastic?

Yes.   🙂
