It is shocking to find out how little we use our minds in fresh and new ways. Have you ever taken the time to notice how mechanical your thoughts can be? How often do you say, “I think…”, and what follows is not something that you’ve really thought in the moment, but rather it is something that you mechanically say in a situation like this?
Mechanical thinking is psychological slavery; it puts you behind emotional prison bars that do not allow you the freedom to try something new in your life. How are you to begin a new business, how are you to make new friends, how are you to explore new adventures or come up with new ways of making money if you always think mechanically?
Illuminating tip = Mechanical thinking begets a mechanical life.
When we think mechanically, we are listening to inward self-talk that is echoing thoughts from our past. Here is an excellent example of the insanity of mechanical thinking; you will find the following story in the little orange book on ROAR-ing that will be available soon:
Imagine walking by a hospital, and an ambulance siren begins screaming. You notice the medics rushing to the ambulance, and you ask, “What’s going on?” A medic shouts, “We’re reacting to an accident that happened thirty years ago.” Can you see the insanity? Yet, you react to sirens of the past whenever you respond to a situation now like you did back then. The past is over; it’s time to turn down the volume on old mechanical self-talk; declare your mind a ‘mechanical-free zone’!
No longer allow old, worn out thinking to be your slave-master. Notice those old thought-habits that have hardened into unconscious whips that force you to think as you always thought. Unconscious whips stop you from experiencing yourself as the superlatively creative being that you truly are.
When you catch yourself mechanically repeating old thought-habits – say this, “I have temporarily misplaced my sanity.” You’re adding levity to the matter, which makes it easier to break free of psychological slavery; slavery that binds you to past thought-habits. In such moments, you can think anew …
Experience this freedom for yourself. No longer be trapped with mechanical thinking that insists that you do what you always did – learn to R.O.A.R. – awaken from psychic sleep – SWEET PLEASURE!
