My name is John and would like to share you an idea about “Thought Lighthouse”. Here is a little story.
There was a concept I came across years ago. It was shared by a class, though somehow springing back up at this very moment. The concept is in regard of our thoughts and how it just springs up. Drawn on a white board was a pool of water. There is not a line for the bottom, though just for simplicity, there is a surface of water with a series of crescent waves. We could say that is a horizon in a way. Suddenly a thought comes up as a bubble. It is spherical and round with a pocket of air inside as a bubble should be.
There is a path at this point. These bubbles float up, though when it is in the frame of our pool (the white board), then we can make a choice. Maybe the thought is random and not exactly what needs to be in concern. The bubble will pop and then become part of the water… (hmm… somehow, this seems a bit obvious workings of physics, though lets not get off topic for the sake of the keeping on the example). Well, when a thought is chosen and follows through, it surfaces toward the top and becomes released in the air.
In a bigger picture, let’s suppose that these thoughts are like ships coming to shore. We could have a crew sailing a voyage home. Upon getting to the harbor, there might be some varying degrees. The sea might be a foggy morning where the hand is just barely visible, while the shore blanketing with clouds. There could be some rocks. There might even be a harbor entry way.
Thus, the lighthouse shines its rays upon the ocean’s wave. Spotting a boat within the layers of fog and then signals the boat by ringing a bell. The crew responded with a bell too. The lighthouse guides it shine over the waters and the boat follows to the shore.
Many of thoughts arise throughout our day and could seem as a sea of thoughts. Sometimes it may be a bit confusing and we need to make sense of it all. Thought Lighthouse is a way to guide our thoughts to clarity. When a good thought comes up, we can reflect and contemplate about it and try to form it in a way so it can be understandable.
Another example, on the ocean’s surface is the sea of black and white. When skies are painted grey, life could be monotonous. We could live in this life not knowing, only living, though are we really alive? Through the subtle grey is life of vibrant colors. There is an inner fire within us that looks around and realizes that there is inspiration in the air. Life opens up to for those who seek life. Questions come up that serves to investigate our human potential. Daily life becomes an adventure. How could we know ourselves? Who am I? What is the meaning of life? What is existence? A lighthouse helps guide us through the mysteries of life.
In Thought Lighthouse, I am trying to share the awareness of thoughts that could help bring us inspiration. The focus is toward how can we improve our understanding about living a healthy way of life, learning our strengths and weaknesses, harmony with body, mind, and spirit, and the need to share a good thought with you. The center of the blog is to bringing us up in awareness, conscious to the practical inspiration within our daily life. We can expand our way of thinking from the norm of life, reaching out, going beyond our box-frame of mind, and stepping through the way that we love.
Thought Lighthouse is a growing progress. We can learn as we go and get better from our experiences. Everyone is welcome and I am looking forward to meeting others who would open up to the practical inspiration within our daily life.
