"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it." ~ Aristotle
This is truly profound! You may not have any control over the thoughts that fall into your head, but you don’t have to allow them to take up residency. On average, you have about 60’000 thoughts a day and at least 90% of them are negative.
So, why do you entertain so many negative thoughts?
Conditioning. You have been conditioned to ruminate on the same negative thoughts. You rehash them in your head again and again. Then, when you see your best buddies, you regurgitate those same thoughts vocally.
Think about it.
You do, don’t you? Do you tell of something completely new and fresh? A new idea? A new empowerment tool? A new spiritual practice?
Just for today, entertain a better thought – a more empowering thought.
