Episode 89: A “Thing” or a “Thought?”

We tend to see ideas we have often as “things,” — baked into a reality.  We do that with our life stories, our training, our political or religious convictions, our personalities.  In our minds, they are “the way it is” or “the way I am.”  Understanding the inside-out nature of Thought, of the fact that each time we bring a thought to mind it is transitory — either a memory drawn from our intellect, or a new idea altogether.  Thoughts appear real in the present only while they are on our minds.  Thoughts are not “things” with a reality of their own; they are images in the kaleidoscope of our lives.  They appear, and disappear, as our attention shifts.  We will not “see” them again unless we think them again.
