Creative in a Destructive Way
by Friends of Godwin
Sometimes we can be very creative in a destructive way with our thoughts. So it is very important to know when we are using thoughts destructively and how to use thoughts constructively.As an example of a story that we create:
At the breakfast table someone is sitting next to us and the person is making a very unpleasant noise. Why is this person sitting next to me? And why is she making this noise? I have been eating now for 20 minutes, but she is continuing to make the same noise. I think she is doing this to agitate me!
We are laughing. But this is exactly what we do. In this story, you see how many monsters can come at the same time – with just this woman sitting there. We can have anger, and because of anger we can have guilt, and because of anger and guilt we can be confused, and because we are confused we can feel jealous when we look around and see other people sitting so calmly. You see how from this little noise, four or five monsters can come within a few minutes. Aren’t we funny? See how we can be so destructive with our thoughts!
