Pacia I do my best writing and thinking while driving in heavy traffic and rain with a loud music on my walkman. The most fruitful thinking ground seems to be the vast subconscious while the conscious mind needs a good amount of distraction in order to facilitate speed in sorting. 981107

adam thinking of y ou and me on my deck in the summertime talking about the future and thinking about me and you driving to the river and talking about how no one understood how in love we were and thinking about you thinking about me while i was 300 miles away at college.

WoNDERGIRL Thinking about that feeling when you come and I'm not quite satisfied just yet but I feel more complete just knowing you got there. Strange, this way I could care less about my own satisfaction lately. How my own satisfaction seems to depend entirely on whether you enjoy me or not. And I'm thinking this is just the way these things go.. 000521

josie thinking too much about what should be going on..rather than how I should be handling it all. This world has me mixed up and wondering how I'm meant to deal with my dead Father..my depressed boyfriend..my job..I've had it up to here! Yeah, I'm just a girl - I need not fit into expectations but take my thoughts with me and fly! 000620

valis me, i wash dishes.

i think it's residual memory from when i was forced to do it,
instead of doing things i'd rather have been. so my mind would rebel and head out west, gun down a few martians while my hands were elbow-deep in leftovers and bubbles.

i still get my best ideas washing dishes.

SCOTT think not of this
its bad and gives
no gain
but i cannot stop
thinking/dreaming
being me!!!
how to escape the problem
of self (of myself!)
rage and passion and fear
and thinking is too much
right now-i can't stop
the tears in my mind
nor the echoing thoughts
of languid sadness-badness
scream and overload and
rant-rage against the thinking
of the thought-the thought
thinks itself-and i
think it too

Barrett I was standing in the shower thinking
about what makes a man
an outlaw or a leader
I'm thinking about power
the way a man can use it
or be destroyed by it

and I'm pissing on myself
standing in the shower thinking

futility I think too much and express too little. I am the only person who knows who I am. I will always be the only person who knows who I am. Unless, of course, someone invents a way to download my brain. Then everyone can see the ordered chaos that is my head. 010519

florescent light to most of us, thinking doesn't qualify as Language
but if you think about your thoughts- I would estimate over 75% of our thoughts are thought in an actual English(or whatever language you happen to speak) organization.
since language is a limited barrier, this means that 75% of our thought processes are limited.
010608
...
florescent light or maybe 75% of our thought processes are encouraged because language gives us a means of expression for thoughts that might otherewise never surface.

A lot of things that I think about are thought about in feelings- I think I feel my thoughts more than an average person (of course, i could be wrong)but everything provokes feeling in me- When I look at a tree- or if I even step out of my house to pick up the newspaper- it has to provoke a certain feeling- and if the feeling isn't there- then I know I'm not connected with myself.

Maybe that 75% figure was too high, maybe it's as low as 25%

Anyway, when I find myself thinking in English, i will say- think about it without using words.
And see what happens.
maybe that's when images become the prominent source of thought

Skalar -HOW TO MEDITATE-

-lights out-
fall, hands a-clasped, into instataneous
ectasy like a shot of heroin or morphine,
the gland inside of my brain discharging
the good glad fluid (Holy Fluid) as
I hap-down and hold all my body parts
down to a deadstop trance - Healing
all my sicknesses - erasing all - not
even the shred of a "I-hope-you" or a
Loony Balloon left in it, but the mind
blank, serene, thoughtless. When a thought
comes a-springing from afar with its held-
forth figure of image, you spoof it out,
you spuff it out, you fake it, and
it fades, and thought never comes - and
with joy you realize for the first time
"Thinking's just like not thinking -
So I dont have to think
any
more"

Jack Kerouac

jestification getting my memory in trouble because i forgot on purpose everytime my hand got slaped for thinking.

and they forgot on accident that one day i would be able to think for myself without restraint....

and here i sit, lost inside my own thoughts now knowing which path to choose...thinking i know all the answers to any complication via my new ideas...
when all the answers lie in the past via old actions.

optic discretion I do that when I listen to music ... about nothing in particular. Yet sometimes a thought of brilliance strikes me unexpectedly. What to expect from life, I may never know. But at least I know i will have thought it through ...

Who I really am,
I may never discover,
but think about I will have done.

Leave me be ... i'm thinking ...

Harlequin thinking thinking I'm always thinking we're all always thinking. I don't understand how someone can write thoughts, like in movies, because my thoughts are too jumbled to say.

making... a desire to run away from it all
wondering... why i bother when i know the truth that lies ahead

PrettyHate who are they? those few on the other side? thinking. you can't turn it off like a faucet, or at least i won't. Why should i? if i didn't THINK then everybody else will be deciding for me.
Not thinking... that's just another way to oppress somebody.
You just want to shut people up.

Maybe you are all lesbos from Mars, another possibility based on the fact that so much of the writing seems feminine.
Probably another assumption on my part, but nooooooooo.
I'm not assuming I am speculating.

i can't believe people tell other people not to think. how do you find answers?

me i dont know if those hurtful and self pityful things you've been saying have been directed at me. i think its foolish and self centered and far too hpoeful to think you are, seeing as its been a full year. but we were so close, and to go from that to nothing at all makes me wonder, if i'm thinking of you because of waht happened, and i know you felt the same way about me because you said so, you must be thinking of me. and last time i had a hunch like this i was right. but its been a fucking year, and you never talk to me anymore. so either tell me you are, leave me the hell alone. i have a life to live, and so do you. 050822

sirflaccid Lately, I have been thinking about manipulation, control, and selfishness. I’ve tried to step back and see if, from an outside perspective, my actions could be construed as such. Of course, anything that I would do to appease or benefit myself, in any fashion, can be judged under the above categories. So, the question becomes, to what degree are these actions acceptable, and when has “that line” been crossed?

Most would apply a negative connotation to these terms based on an abundance of action. However, simply ignoring someone expresses your control, and can be a form of selfish manipulation. Therefore taking no action at all is, in a sense, taking action. So, where does that leave you? What’s the answer?

No matter the decisions we make, all of these; manipulation, control, and selfishness are parts of humanity. Their undertone lies in external perception, and one’s personal intent. Usually, it’s not what you do or do not do. It is what you are trying to do.
