Control What Goes In – Throwback Thursday

“Your own mind is a sacred enclosure into which nothing harmful can enter except by your permission.” – Arnold Bennett

All the time it seems like something is trying to enter our mind. From negative thoughts to bad ideas, there all is always something out there after our headspace. We have two options; we can allow it to control us or we can make sure we have things in place to get it to leave. It’s impossible to not allow our minds to be invaded by negativity, but the goal is to not let it control us. For me, not letting it have control is taking time during the week to do things that help me clear my mind.

🎡 I listen to positive music on my morning commute. I typically listen to Christian Worship on my way to work.

✍️ I try to write at least once a day. This helps me process what’s going on in my life.

🚡 When the weather cooperates, I try to ride my bike at least once a week.

πŸ›οΈ I prioritize rest. A good night’s rest goes a long way in keeping my head clear.

For the first time last year I was able to visit Crowders Mountain. It is about 30 to 40 minutes from Charlotte. It’s easy to get to from I-85. I wanted to go last year, but I was teaching summer school. Since I wasn’t working this summer, I decided to look for an opportunity to go. One day last summer, the weather was perfect. I loaded up my camera bag, and my son and I hiked to the spot called the King’s Pinnacle.

  1. Beautiful view. Rising above things for a higher perspective. The Collective Unconscious as Jung called it is a collective human consciousness of many which share this unified field that is being greatly influenced by negative unseen and seen forces, negative thoughts and emotions projected to and from this field of shared consciousness. Focusing on Love by whatever means asserts our true spiritual nature including messages of Love communicated through religion. Love of God, family, friends, creativity, nature help us to rise above what isn’t loving and healthy. Your love of Nature shared through photography is beautiful. πŸ’–πŸ˜πŸ™πŸ€—πŸŒ±πŸŒΏπŸ’•βœ¨
