Or do you think your thoughts are sort of on Auto pilot, just "thinking" as they please?

  • Both.

    I know they're going to drift along making connections and doodling around without any sense of direction at all... and I know that I can direct them by choice, particularly with lots and lots of practice.

    I can't stop thoughts from thinking, but I can change what I think of them

  • Thoughts are random but you choose what you dwell on. Sometimes you have to choose to put a thought or thinking pattern aside. Thoughts are powerful. A thought becomes an action, an action becomes a habit and a habit is who you are. Be careful what you think about.

  • It's a combination of the two ... thoughts that pop up unconsciously and what you choose to think about and focus on.

  • I admit that I have a lot of things going through my head at times. Sometimes my mental answer is sarcastic, but I don't say it. I think of something else to say instead. I don't want to hurt anybody's feelings.
