Thoughts and Chickens

Remember the scene in Rocky where his trainer has Rocky chasing chickens around the yard to catch them? It quickens him as he learns to anticipate where the chicken will be, and even how to control and capture the birds movements.

I think of thoughts that way. I’ve been thinking of how thoughts have their way with us. They control the brain, the bird pen as it were. And I’ve grown tired of that. Where do these thoughts come from? How can I take back my thoughts? Am I held hostage to them? Or can I take charge of them, catch them, even understand why I have them and use them?

Yes, I think I can. Hold that thought!
