The Need for Grateful Thinking
Are there clear benefits that you can receive, when your thinking is focused in line with gratefulness. In a world where the emphasis, appears to be on getting more and more, It would appear that people seem to be attempting to horde more and more things, before they die and leave it all. It could be suggested that life might be somewhat meaningless, if this is the case. This leads to an interesting argument, are you on this planet to develop yourself, for a better existence? And are you some kind of being which is living in this human body. Could perhaps, development and growth, be the most important, things in life? But also, does the way you think, have a very powerful effect on your life. And could grateful thinking, be an important key to allow you to live, a more fulfilled existence.
Is Development one of the more importance aspects of life?
It has been said, that life is a journey and not just a destination. And it could be said that the development of the mind, might be one of the more important things that you can do during your life. If you look at civilization you can note that progress and improvement are key importance aspects. The need to make things better, and to understand the working of the universe, is a pursuit that has been followed over the centuries. So there seems a clear need for growth and development. This leads to the idea, that there could be even greater scope for development. So if development is something that we are striving to achieve, could the development of gratefulness be something that could be worth developing?
Are you a being that is having a human experience?
An interesting thought is are you a being having a human experience. If you look at the film “The Matrix” it shows a very cleaver idea. It suggest that the reality that you are living, could in fact be a type of computer generated life. This could lead to the suggestion that you are a being having a human experience. Another thought is that, you could be experiencing a computer generated experience, which you are allowed to choose outcomes. Your outcomes being the product of your free will. Now why do I say this? If you consider that we human have the ability to choose and make conscious decisions, leads to intriguing possibilities. So the idea of a type of computer generated life, which has numerous possible outcome which is depend on your free will, is quiet interesting.
