Using Your Mind To Feel Better
Quite often, your thoughts determine your emotions or how you feel.
More importantly, you determine how you feel by how you think or
what you think about. You often feel the way you think as you process
the events of your life. Your thoughts and emotions are the result of
this processing of events. Conversely, how you think and how you feel
can determine how you process the events of your life. How you think
about something can easily determine how you feel. "It's
raining" can make you feel good or bad depending upon whether you
see the rain as a positive or negative event. Thought is the ancestor of
every life experience. The positive or negative aspect of any experience
is grounded in what we think about the experience. A wonderful
experience for one person could easily be a terrible experience for
someone else based upon what each person thinks about the event. The
thought we have toward an event will determine our experience.
What is most important in this matter is we can control what and how
we think. We can choose our thinking processes. We can mold and shape
our viewpoints, opinions, and beliefs. In many ways, the healthiness of
our mental life is dependent upon the healthiness of our viewpoints,
opinions, and beliefs.
