I had a realization. An a-ha moment.
Saw a woman over the weekend sitting alone, franticly biting her nails. You could almost "hear" all the negative thoughts running through her head.
Got the a-ha moment again.
And me. Constantly picking at my fingernails so long, I've become some kind of self-perpetuating nail sculpture with my pocket knife. This happens every time I get a really great idea.
When I had my first a-ha moment, it took me back to something I read, or something someone read to me.. just couldn't put my finger on it. Then, my second a-ha moment made me remember something from a movie.
It's all about this funny thing we call "control".
To most of us, control is something we have to have in order to feel complete as a person, otherwise, we fear that a series of bad things will happen to us.
Of course here in the Mind Warriors forum, we tend to be a little "brighter" than the "outside" people that don't read as much as we do, write as much as we do, research as much as we do, and so on.
We also know there's something much more incredible or spiritual about that simple word "control". Weather you think it's a bad thing or a good thing, consider this for a while..
Control is nothing more than a state of mind. Those that struggle to have it, actually never had it to begin with, otherwise, they wouldn't be in the pickle they are in. Those that don't want it, have more than they ever need.
Ever notice this?
This is mind numbing to me right now, so I'll leave this thread open for some interesting conversation
