The Possibilities Of Thinking



“The only place where your dream becomes impossible is in your own thinking.”

What Are You Encouraging?



“Weeds don’t need any encouragement to grow. Much like our negative and repetitive thoughts they have a force and will of their own. This seems to be a function of our minds left over from the days of old when life was a lot more dangerous and difficult. Advertisers, news media outlets and propagandists seem to know this quite well and aim to play on our unfounded fears. These fears are nebulous and detached from any real threat, and because they are unfounded in reality, any slight mention of negativity will give these fears something to attach to and help justify themselves, though unnecessary. But, in the modern times we need not focus on the negative things so intensely seeing as the world has improved immensely, though not perfect. Let us give more attention to the positive and productive use of our miraculous and powerful minds. Only by doing so can we ever realize a reality in which we pay more attention to what is going right, rather than what is going wrong. When you focus on what you don’t want. you tend to get more of that and vice-versa. Our thoughts tend to become self-fulfilling prophecies. Let them fulfill something desirable”

A Mental Mosaic

“Without the arts, life appears boring, drab, dry and meaningless. Without the science’s life would appear senseless and random. Therefore, they are both equally important, for they endow the world and its inhabitants with the tools to cultivate, nourish, explore and advance.

Working in unison together, they both support the well-being of humanity. Let us not get caught up in absolutist all-or-nothing thinking. There are many unique pieces that constitute the mosaic of life. Much like that of human knowledge, understanding and experiences.

We would be wise to expand our knowledge base, including all the creations and permutations that have been manifested by humanity.”

-R.B. Royal
