Just going on day to day, not thinking, not pondering, not even worrying, just is not the way it was meant to be. Think. That is why we were given a brain: to use it. And if you don't believe in God as your creator, you have to admit you still have a brain. You have a brain, whether you want it or not. So you might as well use it.
You will find yourself using your brain whether you want to or not. You can't avoid it. The brain just kicks in and automatically. It makes decisions for you if you don't pay attention. Its pretty basic. You have a brain to think with, a heart to feel with. You have eyes to see, ears to hear, a tongue to taste and a nose to smell with. You who uses these things to make sense of the world around you. You use these things to understand and make judgements...to stave off your hunger for food, comfort and affection. It is survival pure and simple. It is up to you to master these wonderful tools at your disposal.
As they say, the brain is a terrible thing to waste. It is where your mind dwells. When used properly, it can do wonderful, beautiful things. I've often thought (Note: with my brain) that maybe we should be licensed to use what we have. Some training wouldn't hurt. We are responsible for our own thoughts and feelings. How we use them is up to us. Something to think about.
