Brain, Mind, Thoughts! Believe it or not, these helps us to perceive the world we are living in. Without the proper functioning of any of the above three, what are we left with? Brain-You need it, you need a fully functional one. Mind-Without a sound mind, what are you? Nothing, but just a confused person without any intellect. Thoughts-Whether good or bad, you need them. If you don’t have any thoughts, you are as good as dead!
But, why am I discussing about thoughts and mind? I woke up this morning without any new ideas or plots for my next novel. Yes, like many others, I rely on my dreams because they are the doorway to my imagination-the imagination where there are no boundaries. Dreams can take you to the places where you might not want to be or wouldn’t have thought you’d be. There are a lot of people who are satisfied while sleeping because they are in an entirely different world.
Let me take my example and explain to you the necessity of having a mind with numerous thoughts. My 1st and the only novel was published almost 2 years ago and since then, I have written only a handful of blogs and a couple of short stories. Am I an Author/Writer? Yes, I am. What have I done for my career in writing? Nothing! In the last 2 years, a lot of things changed, both in my personal life and my professional life. In the last 2 years, I suppressed my mind just to concentrate on the matters which are important and necessary. In the last 2 years, my ideology and the way of thinking has changed. Why is that? Because I think, actually, thought too much which is dangerous in its own way.
For everyone who thinks that if a person is successful, his life is easy-No. The person who is successful and who achieved something in life has the most troubled mind. By troubled mind, I mean, the number of thoughts which go through it every hour is too high. Where there are thoughts, there is chaos. Mind cannot be controlled, thoughts can only be deferred to a certain point and time, after which hell breaks loose!
When you leave your mind and thoughts free, there are fair chances that over-thinking might create a nuisance for you one day. But, when you leave your mind and thoughts free, your creativity is at the top most level. Whether you wake up early at 6 and inhale the fresh air or wake up late, if you have a free mind, the ideas will keep flowing in and out of your brain.
In today’s world, we don’t give much thought to it because of the routine which we follow day in and day out. The only time we become creative is at the work we do in offices. We might be good at it, we might be the best in it and that’s fair but what about your other reality, the reality in which you grow! I have been saying this for last many years and I would do the same now as well, Everyone has got a passion, everyone has got some talent but majority of us fail to find it. You know why? Because you are not thinking enough, because you have caged your creativity in one corner of your brain!
On the downside, we can’t control our thoughts and imagination. But, our thoughts open the gateway to an entirely different world. You may be able to find a solution to every problem, but when your mind is open and your thoughts are flowing in and out, you can find many solutions to every problem. Thoughts give way to creativity, whether good or bad, constructive or destructive depends on entirely different factors but-but, broaden your mind, have more thoughts and be creative. There is more to life than confined and necessary thinking. Make your brain and mind free from the cage in which you put them while growing up. Set them free and perceive this life in a different manner.
