A Single Thought to Discipline Your Mind and Seize the Day

A philosophical concept I’m constantly mulling over is how thoughts are things.

What “furniture” is taking up the most space?

  • Do you like it?
  • Is it useful?
Just don’t burn the whole house down.

“Unclog your mind. Unclog your room. Arrange your room in a way you wish your mind would be.” — Yoko Ono

After eliminating some of your old “furniture” and baggage, what new stuff can you add?

Google, books, YouTube, and Medium can help with your search.

“Just one positive thought in the morning can change your whole day.” — Dalai Lama XIV

Be the gatekeeper of your “room”.

You shouldn’t just let anyone into your room because they can end up cluttering your space, leaving their junk, distracting you, and ultimately pooping on your floor, as I’m sure we’ve all had the misfortune of doing ourselves, right?

“If you want to soar high in life you have to give up the things and people who weigh you down.”

Finally, invite your friends in.

Life is better when it’s shared so don’t banish everyone in the observable universe. No one is perfect.
