How Are You Thinking?

Too often we ask,

How are you doing?

And more often than not we receive a lie.

I’m fine

Good

Okay, how about you?

We can’t help but lie.

Feelings are fleeting fragments of the soul.

But thoughts,

thoughts are continuous.

I believe a better question to ask is,

How are you thinking?

Are your thoughts manic?

Ragefully pondering revenge?

Flighty?

Peaceful as a willow tree in the heat of August?

Logical and rational?

Wishful dreaming?

Obsessing?

Thoughts monitor behavior,

are you thinking rashly or overcationly?

When we are upset we yell,

What were you thinking!?

It’s not the what I’m concerned about,

I wonder how are you thinking.

 

So how are you thinking?

  1. “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” I do believe that what we focus on is what we see…. sometimes i have to catch myself and re-arrange my train of thought because it makes me unhappy and I WANT TO BE HAPPY. thanks for another thought provoking post.

  2. You have just addressed the exact problem my family was talking about the other night at dinner. I find I’m rather in love with your solution to our everyday quandary.
