Power Of Thoughts – Transform Your Life

This is one of the most beautiful topics I had always wanted to touch upon. Personally I believe that our thoughts are the designer of our destiny, our actions and ultimately our life. This is the power of thoughts. The power that can transform our lives.

Your thoughts make you

So let us begin this article with the most beautiful lines from the Great Bhagwad Gita where Lord Krishna says: 

You are what you believe in. You become that which you believe you can become.

Now these lines are self-explanatory. They form the foundation of your life. You have the power to rise. You have the power to choose your own thoughts. The only person who has control on your thoughts is You. Mould them however you want them to work for you. You can either make you or break you and no one else in this whole world has the power to do that with you except you. No one has the right to pollute your soul. You are the cleaner of your own soul and it is you who will determine every right and power to shape your character by the quality of your thoughts.



Power of Thoughts

You are the Universe

James Allen said; “A man literally is what he thinks; his character is the sum of his thoughts.” 

Man is the master of his own thoughts. We think that we are helpless before the circumstances. But we forget that the way these circumstances are going to affect us is how we perceive them. You have the power to mould the circumstances your way. You have the solutions to all your problems. You have the keys to all the locks. You have the power to transform yourself into whoever you want to become. And one thing that I believe in is that we all have been created and brought into this world because we are significant. Every atom of our body is the part of the Universe. And thus we are a tiny Universe on a whole.

Understand your divine soul. Before making some changes in your life just think upon few questions; “Where do you stand as a human being? Who are you? What are you? Where do you want to go?” When you are in the position of answering these questions you will understand the reason behind your life and then be in the position of directing your thoughts in that way.

The power of thoughts makes all the difference

Thought itself is powerful. So do not think of it any less. All the discoveries and inventions that have taken place are because of the process of thought. I will present over here few very simple examples which you can relate to your daily life. It were the same cereals and spices which have given birth to different kinds of tasty cuisines. The difference lies in the different thought processes involved in the invention of any dish. It is the same seven Sargam notes which have created billions of different songs. The difference lies in the fact that the thought process of every lyricist and every music composer is different. So any invention or discovery lies in the difference of thoughts.

Also the regular practice of your thoughts is important to have the same frequency of thoughts. If you leave practicing something you will lose its efficiency soon. You are free to choose your thoughts and utilize them however you want. 

It’s  the thought process which makes all the difference. What if you are given a line to explain? Each person will have a different explanation, a different opinion on the matter. The most beautiful explanation will be given by the person who thinks about the topic most beautifully; who understands the beauty behind the lines. He will express his thoughts in such a way that the meaning will become more beautiful than the line itself. The same way in our daily life, we are thinking over the solutions of some or the other problems. But our thought process should be such that it makes the problems look smaller and provides you a beautiful meaning of the problem. That is the power of thoughts.

As a child u must have drawn a scenery where the sun is rising in the sky from behind the mountains and the clouds. There is a hut, a path, a few trees and the birds. Now the subject is the same for all the children but the different imaginations involved, makes a particular drawing the winning piece and makes that child different from the rest others. So the idea behind explaining this is, every one of us have been given the same planet to live in but the beauty of each one’s thoughts decides the quality of their lives. 



Power of Thoughts

An old recipe with a new variant

Mind should be stable and calm. A stable mind is all that is needed in order to win over any difficult situations. You need to polish whatever raw thoughts you have. When the first copy of any book is drafted, is it ready to read? No. That is why it is called a draft. There is a lot of editing, a lot of polishing required to make it reader friendly, to make it the number one choice of the readers, to make it the best seller. In the same way your rough thoughts need to be polished before they are presented before anyone else to make them sound productive. To make any book a bestseller, it is not only the content which is important but it is how differently you presented your content before the readers is what makes all the difference.

As an old recipe with a new variant is always desirable, in the similar way when you have a crude thought it has to be polished in a manner which creates all the magic. 

Know yourself by awakening your consciousness

You have assembled a bunch of thoughts in your mind but your job is also to assort them well. A direction of your thoughts is important. The most productive time to pen down my thoughts is either the early morning hours or the late evening hours. I know when I can assort the web of thoughts in my mind. In the same way you also need to know about yourself. When is the right time to self-investigate your mind, when can you explore your hidden persona. Before trying to understand somebody else, understand yourself. Know yourself first.

Now how to do that? It is possible by increasing the level of consciousness. We all are born with the same level of consciousness. It is in the due course of our lives when we gain consciousness by working on it. The factors which affect it may be external or internal. We have to reach that level of consciousness where we will be able to differentiate between the good and the bad, the right and wrong, where we are unaffected with whatever wrong is happening around or whatever is against us. If everything is going to affect us then it would be very difficult to survive. We will only be left with the feelings of remorse and unkindness. When your happiness is dependent on the external factors, you will become the slave of the external world.

You have to look for yourself. Know your individuality. You are an individual as a whole. Know the power of thoughts, the power of yourself.

Meditation  to direct your thoughts

To balance your thoughts, they have to be directed. Meditation and Yoga is what is required to balance your thoughts, to focus the energy which is dissipated in all the directions. Mindfulness meditation soothes your mind, reduces the stress and anxiety when you are working in a high pressure work environment, induces positive thinking and optimism, enhances self-awareness, helps increasing focus thus rebuilds your orientation, gives you a clarity of thinking, peace and releases tension. Meditation will give your thoughts a direction and help you understand the Power of You. The power of thoughts. Your mental health is important for maintaining your physical health and vice versa. 

The beautiful lines of Bhagwad Gita say: “Strive to still your thoughts. Make your mind one-pointed in meditation. The mind is restless and difficult to restrain, but it is subdued by practice.”

Conserve your energy

Don’t be a profligate of your energy. Try to conserve your energy. Concentrate it in the desirable direction. As you must have seen in case of all highly knowledgeable people who speak less and act more. They are peaceful and calm because they invest the large amount of their energy in building productive thoughts thus connecting their souls to the divine.

Why is writing down the thoughts a difficult part? Because it involves a lot of clarity in your thoughts. Any random thought cannot be put down on a paper. It is after the articulated use of words that you have to decorate your thoughts with. Before deciding on to writing a topic you need to have thoughts that can swim through the neurons of your brain.  



Power of Thoughts



Sue Grafton says “Thinking is hard work, which is why you don’t see many people doing it.” 

Deep analysis of thoughts

 Deep analysis and understanding the concept of any difficult problem is really important. Why is it that we still remember few of the difficult concepts which we have learnt or studied in our lower standards? These are all those things which we have deeply thought about, the ones we have analysed, the ones we have gone to the roots of. In the same way whenever there comes a problem, a deep understanding of the problem is really important. It is only when we reach to the roots of the problems, that we will be able to solve them. It will come by a well-established thought process.

Have you ever noticed that most of the thoughts come to your mind when you are sitting unoccupied. It is the peace that is needed to develop the thoughts. Be so busy in creating and weaving productive thoughts that the place or the time will not have any effect on you. Keep the thought process always at the back of your mind so that whenever there is a need of any thought, you are able to pick one out of them.

Read good books

Another way to develop your thoughts is to read good and powerful books. The choice of the books should be such that you grow mentally instead of getting just entertained. Books are for your personal, professional, spiritual and mental growth.

In one simple line Haruki Murakami said “If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.” 

These lines carry a deep meaning where the kind of books that you read will determine your thought process. Slowly your thoughts will start getting reflected in your language and ultimately your personality. 

It all begins with a small thought

The basis of the foundation of all the big or the small institutions that have been laid is a small thought. A small thought which was woven in the mind of the founder has given birth to a powerful institution. Any article or a book that you have read is the work of a simple thought which gives rise to the other thoughts and all the thoughts are woven together into a beautiful thought process by the writer.

Let us take a pause over here with the remarkable lines of Swami Vivekananda “Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life; dream of it; think of it; live on that idea. Let the brain, the body, muscles, nerves, every part of your body be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success, and this is the way great spiritual giants are produced.” 

Let us all think over it and analyse for a while how are we going to shape our lives by directing our thoughts. In which direction are our thoughts being directed?

We are the charioteer of the chariot of our mind and thus have the power to direct it in any direction we want. Know the power of thoughts and transform your life.
