There is a lot that can be said about the working of the brain in the thought process. I think I will leave that to the experts.
I live by the ELVIS principle. No, I’m not looking for Mr. Presley. I mean ELVIS as in:
I know, I know – too cutesy, corny and all that. But the truth is that we all think. We cannot chose to not think at all. We can chose not to think on certain things too much. But the best way to not think about something is to think about something else.
So, Paul’s advice to the Philippians: Think about what is good, honest, noble…
When we dwell on something it tends to take over our life. It would be great to have our lives taken over by goodness, honesty, nobility, etc.!
Think about it.
