How often do you hear about the need to "control your thoughts" on the evolutionary path? I observe there's a big problem with this. It really is all about the energy - about consciousness. Trying to manipulate thoughts and behaviours is only partially affective unless we feel into why they were misaligned in the first place. Or else it's just a case of the tail trying to wag the dog. So if you find yourself having misplaced thoughts, ask why? What do I need to work with and let go internally? What am I being invited to accept? Then, after you've worked on it, a new inner harmony will arise, from which, aligned energies will flow and new thoughts take shape around them. Behaviours and right action begin to follow - the dog is wagging the tail again. It leads to lasting beneficial change.
