There are many discussions about thinking positive , and how positive thoughts will create positive results in your life , however I think there might be some confusion as to the difference between thoughts and beliefs , and ” if ” there is any difference at all.
All I can do is speak for myself , how I would define thoughts versus Beliefs. While I do believe that positive thoughts and positive thinking are beneficial I don’t “think” of thoughts as the same as beliefs , to me they have some subtle differences.
I would define thoughts as simply motion and division, mind wandering, pondering , trying to figure it all out , while beliefs would be more like a State of Being , a more solidified thought perhaps , a frozen thought, a construct.
For example , during the day , we have all kinds of thoughts running through our heads , for me personally , I can have all kinds of thoughts both negative and positive oriented so to speak , but it does not mean I believe in them , or give them any real attention , they are just aspects of what I call monkey mind , the constant rambling of ego , always trying to figure it all out , what to do , when to do it , how to do it and so on.
Sometimes a thought , an annoying one , will stick its ugly little head up , and I know that I do not resonate with it , usually it’s some sort of limiting thought , so I just acknowledge it as a by product of the physical mind trying to do what it was not intended to do.
Physical mind does not have the ability to know what is going to happen , all it can ever truly know is what happened and what is happening , so in that sense it records experiences.
