We may not always notice a concentrated focusing of our thoughts in one or two areas of life. There is a lot of surface babble going on in the mind and deeper thoughts that need closer attention. Looking carefully at this you can see patterns quickly emerge. Things that you believe, subjects that challenge you, thoughts about others, the darker and lighter sides of your personality and fears that you keep hidden are all in the mix of your minds daily journeys. Our thoughts are made up of memories – all that we have seen, done, experienced, invented, judged and imagined. Somewhere is this chatter are a few focusing points that get all the attention!
You will notice your minds prime focusing points in moments when you are quiet, doing repetitive tasks or when you are waiting. It may be just five minutes, but our vast intelligence is busy creating numerous scenarios where victory, love, revenge and adventure are playing out. Most of the time this has a minor impact on life or you totally dismiss it in seconds, but it is interesting to see if there are any major themes running through this mind play or just snippets of everything. Taking notice assists in knowing yourself to a greater degree, though for some this information could be vital.
Your main focusing points could actually lead you somewhere; maybe you are more creative than you think? Most parents are of course focused on their children, but they will still have areas of their lives that are dedicated to the things that they enjoy doing – we are all individuals with a life plan that we make to suit our needs and desires. Your focusing point may be on what you think is obvious, but if it lies elsewhere take a closer look – there may be secrets or something unexpected in these thoughts (hopefully all helpful and productive). If a few insecurities show up in these floating visions don’t let that bother you, as a whole people judge themselves way to harshly. No one is asking for perfection, just a little more information (If you don’t like what you see and it seems more detrimental than beneficial please consult a doctor or therapist).
Humanity is a populous of serial knowledge seekers. We admire the strong-minded and compassionate people within society who take on their quest and win. But we have all done this to some degree and will continue to do so. Make use of your prime focusing point – it is just another tools to help you gain wisdom and learn more about yourself.
