The mind is everything, what you think you become
– Gautam Buddha
What is Poison? A substance which is harmful, which could destroy one completely, something which could even kill you.
If you are a victim of food poisoning, you could still get saved if you are medicated on time, but what about the mental poisoning? The poison which you are slowly letting inside your mind and body? Aren’t we slowly becoming a victim of Thought Poisoning?
On the 16th Day of #Blogchatter A2Z Challenge, I bring to you another way of getting rid of the victimhood of unwanted or unwarranted emotions and situations. #26days26ways
Sometimes knowingly and sometimes unknowingly. What life brings to us is a bunch of unpredictable stories and we are a significant be a part of it and sometimes even a creator of it.
We create our own reality, any situation which is good or bad is the consequence of the choice we make in our lives, the decisions we take and things we forego in order to accomplish something in life.
Negative thoughts are like fully loaded guns, which when triggers spread end numbers of negative elements around us and become the first culprit of self- destruction while believing them becomes second.
Feelings of hatred, envy, jealousy, anger, lust, doubt, fear, revenge, boastfulness, insensitivity, resentment, grudges, arrogance, selfishness are just very few to list here, it’s up to the bearer of the gun to stop or to continue being the victim of the uncalled emotions.
Every thought we possess, be it negative or positive has some potion of energy in it, a source of creation, a source of any good or bad vibe we could spread around us. Each thought we go through has the power to build us or to destroy us fully.
Thoughts are the creation of our mind based on the situations we are and how we intend to deal with the situation is what matters, is what counts. We might live a splendid life, do thousands of good deeds but just one thought which gets maligned or poisoned and could ruin our thousands of good deeds.
In today’s world where everyone is living a mechanical life trying to step up the ladder and where emotions are cornered to survive and stay in the game, people live in ignorance and fail to handle people and things around them with some sensitivity.
So much stressful lifestyle, so much competition to survive, to thrive what one does to rise above others, to prove themselves is an overtly evident of a poisoned mind resulting in unhealthy relationships and lifestyle.
Who is responsible for our present situation?
Our mind, our thought process, it is in our hands how we choose to direct them when we should stop, reflect and then react. If we are surrounded by toxicity or unhealthy relationship, you know it’s time you cut off from them, any situation, place or person which doesn’t spark joy in your life or put you down should be removed from your life, only then you could free yourself from any thought poisoning.
It is like a poison which once enters inside the body starts spreading and takes a toll over your heart and beautiful emotions you have inside you and only leads to self-destruction.
Like every decision, the situation begins with a thought, no one else but only we are responsible for our predicaments. Our blessings come from our own efforts and our curses come from our own malignity.
How to Overcome it?
To completely eradicate the poisons from our mind we should:
- Have some sensitivity toward others
- A sense of forgiveness to mankind
- We must acknowledge the efforts of others
- We must love more, we must live more and conquer all our inner demons of fear, anguish, stress, jealousy overthinking and self-doubt.
This is the only way to live a healthy and mindful life.
