Blank. Blank. Blank.

Sometimes I feel so “Blank”! I wonder what some people think, and what they do! Human behaviour is a wonderful mystery.

I have spent years trying to understand different perceptions of diverse groups of people, only to find more questions than answers! The human mind interests me more than anything else, I find that there’s hardly an answer to questions on this one intangible “thing”.

Strange as it may seem, I have been unable to understand my own mind. There’s one intriguing aspect of the mind called “will-power.” How do we develop a strong will-power? How does a person change a certain aspect of his/her behaviour when it seems so difficult to do so? This is what we would term as “lack of will-power.” But why is it that inspite of being aware of the necessity for the change that we are unable to gather the so called “will-power” to do so?

Apart from different people who I have studied closely over the years, the person I have been able to study best has been me. I have tried to understand the strength of my will throughout the time since I became “mentally mature” to understand the effects of thought and the mind on human behaviour. I still find it difficult to control certain thought processes that develop in my mind. I can understand that those thoughts or the resulting behaviour may not be reasonable or logical; however, there is a “hidden process” which destroys all logic and reason and pushes me forward. It is like a civil war in the mind!

This same “hidden process” sometimes gives me the courage to take the boldest of steps which help me attain the highest levels of success in certain spheres. On the other hand, there are times when the resultant “civil war” in the mind causes the greatest mental disturbances and stress.

My friend had once mentioned that “Life is like a piano, white keys represent happiness and black keys represent sadness. But as you go through life’s journey, remember that both keys make MUSIC!”

blank as it may seem but isn't it amazing to realise that at a particular instant we can think of thousands of thoughts ?????
