Ignorance is bliss?… Ah, no..


ignorance is blissThe first thing you have to do, you meaning me, is accept the fact that you will always be in your head.

Thoughts will continually cross your mind and cause emotions and other obsessive thinking cause you have a mind that is already obsessed with external stimulation.

“Is there any pill I can take to stop my mind from constantly thinking?”

“No.”

“Ok.”

I have asked my shrink more than once and he gives me the same raw reality every time.

Then I look at some of my co-workers and there is zero speeds of thought entering their gourd.  They are walking through life easily, it seems, and the long standing saying “ignorance is bliss” stands to be questioned.

Ignorance is bliss…?  Fine.

But if you don’t have a choice in being ignorant cause you are constantly breathing the array of thoughts crossing your mind then you never get to be a part of that catch phrase.

Ignorance is bliss when you are capable of being ignorant.

Some of us aren’t.  Most of us will always have the non-pill that can’t stop the internal dialogue or thoughts constantly hitting our internal voice.

And I think about those people that don’t have that and are truly ignorant to it otherwise. Is that their blessing?  Maybe.  But it’s not mine, nor ever will be.

I’d rather be internally combusting at the seams with ideas then be stale.

Stale is easy if you’re ignorant

Stale sucks if you’re not.

Keep the mind a flowing.  It’s better then you think.
