Thought Patterns Sayings By Aletheia Luna: The Empath is often said to have such a great degree of empathy that they The Empath is often said to have such a great degree of empathy that they can literally feel what others feel, and thus intuitively know many of the yearnings, sensitivities, tastes and even thought patterns of the people they're around. — Aletheia Luna

Thought Patterns Sayings By Melanie Joy: It is impossible to exercise free will as long as we are operating from within It is impossible to exercise free will as long as we are operating from within the system. Free will requires consciousness, and our pervasive and deep-seated patterns of thought are unconscious; they are outside of our awareness and therefore outside of our control. While we remain in the system, we see the world through the eyes of carnism. And as long as we look through eyes other than our own, we will be living in accordance to a truth that is not of our own choosing. We must step outside the system to find our lost empathy and make choices that reflect what we truly feel and believe, rather than what we've been taught to feel and believe. — Melanie Joy

Thought Patterns Sayings By Elizabeth Gilbert: The sentences still form in my mind, and thoughts still do their little show-off dance, The sentences still form in my mind, and thoughts still do their little show-off dance, but I know my thought patterns so well now that they don't bother me anymore. My thoughts have become like old neighbors, kind of bothersome but ultimately rather endearing - Mr. and Mrs. Yakkity-Yak and their three dumb children, Blah, Blah and Blah. But they don't agitate my home. There's room for all of us in this neighborhood. — Elizabeth Gilbert

Thought Patterns Sayings By Paul Feyerabend: Human paint, produce films and videos; they dance, dream and make music; they engage in Human paint, produce films and videos; they dance, dream and make music; they engage in political action, exchange goods, perform rituals, build houses start wars, act in plays, try to please patrons- and so on ... They contain patterns, press the practitioners to "conform" and in this way mold their thought, their perception, their actions, and their discriminative abilities. — Paul Feyerabend

But these patterns of thought can have so much to do with whimsy that magic often is jokes. — Helen Oyeyemi

Thought Patterns Sayings By Arthur Fry: I back away from conscious thought and turn the problem over to my unconscious mind. I back away from conscious thought and turn the problem over to my unconscious mind. It will scan a broader array of patterns and find some new close fits from other information stored in my brain. — Arthur Fry

Thought Patterns Sayings By Emily Maroutian: What people think about you has more to do with their habitual thinking than with What people think about you has more to do with their habitual thinking than with who you really are. You, as you are right now, are filtered through decades of their life experiences, traumas, disappointments, heartaches, and suffering. It is a reflection of their patterns of thought and stories about life. Their judgment has nothing to do with you as a whole because the experience of you cannot be separated from their experience of life. — Emily Maroutian

Thought Patterns Sayings By Kilroy J. Oldster: All of us share conscious recognition of our individual self. Each of us is more All of us share conscious recognition of our individual self. Each of us is more than a product of our conscious thoughts. The dictation of our unconscious mind also affects our behavior. The unconsciousness cogitates upon problems that are too harsh to submit to conscious resolution. The unconscious mind frequently directs us to take action that a rational, conscious mind would eschew. Resembling a two-sided coin, both our conscious and unconscious minds contribute to our thought processes. Collaborative thoughts lead to action, and repeated actions result in the development of behavior patterns, and ingrained behavior patterns lead to a sense of identity. — Kilroy J. Oldster

Thought Patterns Sayings By Stephen Hawking: Some individuals are better able than others to draw the right conclusions about the world Some individuals are better able than others to draw the right conclusions about the world about them and act accordingly. These individuals will be more likely to survive and reproduce so their pattern of behaviour and thought will become dominant — Stephen Hawking

Thought Patterns Sayings By Matthieu Ricard: No change occurs if we just let our habitual tendencies and automatic patterns of thought No change occurs if we just let our habitual tendencies and automatic patterns of thought perpetuate and even reinforce themselves, thought after thought, day after day, year after year. But those tendencies and patterns can be challenged. — Matthieu Ricard

Thought Patterns Sayings By Eckhart Tolle: In the unawakened state you don't use thought, but thought uses you. You are, one In the unawakened state you don't use thought, but thought uses you. You are, one could almost say, possessed by thought, which is the collective conditioning of the human mind that goes back many thousands of years. You don't see anything as it is, but distorted and reduced by mental labels, concepts, judgments, opinions and reactive patterns. — Eckhart Tolle

Thought Patterns Sayings By Dallas Willard: The second primary objective of a curriculum for Christlikeness is to remove our automatic responses The second primary objective of a curriculum for Christlikeness is to remove our automatic responses against the kingdom of God, to free the apprentices of domination, of "enslavement" (John 8:34; Rom. 6:6), to their old habitual patterns of thought, feeling, and action. These are the "automatic" patterns of response that were ground into the embodied social self during its long life outside The Kingdom Among Us. They make up "the sin that is in my members" which, as Paul so brilliantly understood, brings it about that "wishing to do the good is mine, but the doing of it is not" (Rom. 7:18). — Dallas Willard

Thought Patterns Sayings By Luke Rhinehart: New places and new roles forced me into acute awareness of how others were responding New places and new roles forced me into acute awareness of how others were responding to me. When a human is being himself, flowing with his inner nature, wearing his natural appropriate masks, integrated with his environment, he is normally unaware of subtleties in another's behavior. Only if the other person breaks a conventional pattern is awareness stimulated. However, breaking my established patterns was threatening to my deeply ingrained selves and pricked me to a lvel of consciousness which is unusual, unusual since the whole instinct of human behavior is to find environments congenial to the relaxation of consciousness. By creating problems for myself I created thought. — Luke Rhinehart

Thought Patterns Sayings By Louise L. Hay: The mental thought patterns that cause the most dis-ease in the body are CRITICISM, ANGER, The mental thought patterns that cause the most dis-ease in the body are CRITICISM, ANGER, RESENTMENT and GUILT. For instance, criticism indulged in long enought will often lead to dis-eases such as arthritis. Anger turns into things that boil and burn and infect the body. Resentment long held festers and eats away at the self and ultimately can lead to tumors and cancer. Guilt always seeks punishment and leads to pain. — Louise L. Hay

Thought Patterns Sayings By Neal Stephenson: If he would just work with pure ideas like a proper mathematician he could go If he would just work with pure ideas like a proper mathematician he could go as fast as thought. As it happens, Alan has become fascinated by the incarnations of pure ideas in the physical world. The underlying math of the universe is like the light streaming in through the window. Alan is not satisfied with merely knowing that it streams in. He blows smoke into the air to make the light visible. He sits in meadows gazing at pine cones and flowers, tracing the mathematical patterns in their structure, and he dreams about electron winds blowing over the glowing filaments and screens of radio tubes, and, in their surges and eddies, capturing something of what is going on in his own brain. Turing is neither a mortal nor a god. He is Antaeus. That he bridges the mathematical and physical worlds is his strength and his weakness. — Neal Stephenson

Thought Patterns Sayings By Susan Cain: Extroverts are more likely to take a quick-and-dirty approach to problem-solving, trading accuracy for speed, Extroverts are more likely to take a quick-and-dirty approach to problem-solving, trading accuracy for speed, making increasing numbers of mistakes as they go, and abandoning ship altogether when the problem seems too difficult or frustrating. Introverts think before they act, digest information thoroughly, stay on task longer, give up less easily, and work more accurately. Introverts and extroverts also direct their attention differently: if you leave them to their own devices, the introverts tend to sit around wondering about things, imagining things, recalling events from their past, and making plans for the future. The extroverts are more likely to focus on what's happening around them. It's as if extroverts are seeing "what is" while their introverted peers are asking "what if. — Susan Cain

Many interesting things have been observed with neuroimaging machines. Synapses firing, electrical charges, patterns. Sparks. The big bang (birth of a thought) perhaps?

When a thought is made dynamic by will force, it can manifest according to the mental blueprint you have created. — Paramahansa Yogananda

It was, Martin thought, like the rabbit which the Hindus see in the moon. It is next to impossible to make people see it; but once they have recognized it, they will never see a face or a man or a woman there again. It is obvious that there is a rabbit in the moon; but obviousness seems too often unsusceptible of proof.

Thought Patterns Sayings By Jess Molly Brown: When the light faded, Vince strolled down to the falls. Heavy mist made the spotlights When the light faded, Vince strolled down to the falls. Heavy mist made the spotlights appear especially cool. He got himself a sausage on a bun, with lots of mustard and fried onions, and settled on a patch of damp grass to watch the standard Friday night fireworks. He never tires of the fascinating colours and patterns. They're impossible to reproduce on canvas. He couldn't resist making his usual wishes on them.

He wished he had someone special with him.

Maybe there's some girl on the planet who would like to hear that gold fireworks contain actual gold, he thought while watching a nearby couple laugh. Wouldn't it be great to be able to share that? — Jess Molly Brown
Thought Patterns Sayings By Chogyam Trungpa: When we are constantly recreating our basic patterns of behavior and thought, we never have When we are constantly recreating our basic patterns of behavior and thought, we never have to leap into fresh air or onto fresh grass. Instead, we wrap ourselves in our own dark environment, where our only companion is the smell of our own sweat. In the cocoon, there is no dance, no walking or breathing. It is comfortable and sleepy, an intense and very familiar home. — Chogyam Trungpa
Thought Patterns Sayings By Donna Tartt: The assignment was a two-page essay, in Greek, on any epigram of Callimachus that we The assignment was a two-page essay, in Greek, on any epigram of Callimachus that we chose. I'd done only a page and I started to hurry through the rest in impatient and slightly dishonest fashion, writing out the English and translating word by word. It was something Julian asked us not to do. The value of Greek prose composition, he said, was not that it gave one any particular facility in the language that could not be gained as easily by other methods but that if done properly, off the top of one's head, it taught one to think in Greek. One's thought patterns become different, he said, when forced into the confines of a rigid and unfamiliar tongue. Certain common ideas become inexpressible; other, previously undreamt-of ones spring to life, finding miraculous new articulation. — Donna Tartt
Thought Patterns Sayings By Thomas Harris: Jack Crawford heard the rhythm and syntax of his own speech in Graham's voice. He Jack Crawford heard the rhythm and syntax of his own speech in Graham's voice. He had heard Graham do that before, with other people. Often in intense conversation Graham took on the other person's speech patterns. At first, Crawford had thought he was doing it deliberately, that it was a gimmick to get the back-and-forth rhythm going.
Later Crawford realized that Graham did it involuntarily, that sometimes he tried to stop and couldn't. — Thomas Harris
Thought Patterns Sayings By Marshall McLuhan: The tribalizing power of the new electronic media, the way in which they return to The tribalizing power of the new electronic media, the way in which they return to us to the unified fields of the old oral cultures, to tribal cohesion and pre-individualist patterns of thought, is little understood. Tribalism is the sense of the deep bond of family, the closed society as the norm of community. — Marshall McLuhan
Thought Patterns Sayings By Golden Ink: The whole point of applying mindfulness is that it allows you to catch negative thought The whole point of applying mindfulness is that it allows you to catch negative thought patterns before they consume you because it involves a conscious direction of your awareness. — Golden Ink
Thought Patterns Sayings By Greg Egan: And after the briefest flowering of understanding, my own generation had grown complacent. At some And after the briefest flowering of understanding, my own generation had grown complacent. At some level, we must have started taking it for granted that the way the universe worked was now obvious to any child ... even though it went against everything innate to the species: the wild, undisciplined love of patterns, the craving to extract meaning and comfort from everything in sight.
We thought we were passing on everything that mattered to our children: science, history, literature,
art. Vast libraries of information lay at their fingertips. But we hadn't fought hard enough to pass on
the hardest-won truth of all: Morality comes only from within. Meaning comes only from within. Outside our own skulls, the universe is indifferent. — Greg Egan

Thought Patterns Sayings By Sharon Salzberg: Dedicating some time to meditation is a meaningful expression of caring for yourself that can Dedicating some time to meditation is a meaningful expression of caring for yourself that can help you move through the mire of feeling unworthy of recovery. As your mind grows quieter and more spacious, you can begin to see self-defeating thought patterns for what they are, and open up to other, more positive options. — Sharon Salzberg
Thought Patterns Sayings By Alan W. Watts: Taoism, on the other hand, is generally a pursuit of older men, and especially of Taoism, on the other hand, is generally a pursuit of older men, and especially of men who are retiring from active life in the community. Their retirement from society is a kind of outward symbol of an inward liberation from the bounds of conventional patterns of thought and conduct. For Taoism concerns itself with unconventional knowledge, with the understanding of life directly, instead of in the abstract, linear terms of representational thinking. — Alan W. Watts
Thought Patterns Sayings By Ken Liu: At this moment, in this place, the shifting action potential in my neurons cascade into At this moment, in this place, the shifting action potential in my neurons cascade into certain arrangements, patterns, thoughts; they flow down my spine, branch into my arms, my fingers, until muscles twitch and thought is translated into motion; mechanical levers are pressed; electrons are rearranged; marks are made on paper.

At another time, in another place, light strikes the marks, reflects into a pair of high-precision optical instruments sculpted by nature after billions of years of random mutations; upside-down images are formed against two screens made up of millions of light-sensitive cells, which translate light into electrical pulses that go up the optic nerves, cross the chiasm, down the optic tracts, and into the visual cortex, where the pulses are reassembled into letters, punctuation marks, words, sentences, vehicles, tenors, thoughts.

The entire system seems fragile, preposterous, science fictional. — Ken Liu
Thought Patterns Sayings By Vironika Tugaleva: When you have any sort of intense emotional reaction, you have a choice: look for When you have any sort of intense emotional reaction, you have a choice: look for proof that you should feel it even deeper or look for the thought process that is triggering the emotion. One takes you on a downwards spiral, while the other upwards. One breeds toxic patterns, the other awareness. The choice is yours. — Vironika Tugaleva
Thought Patterns Sayings By Douglas Adams: The Babel fish is small, yellow, leechlike, and probably the oddest thing in the Universe. The Babel fish is small, yellow, leechlike, and probably the oddest thing in the Universe. It feeds on brainwave energy received not from its own carrier but from those around it. It absorbs all unconscious mental frequencies from this brainwave energy to nourish itself with. It then excretes into the mind of its carrier a telepathic matrix formed by combining the conscious thought frequencies with nerve signals picked up from the speech centers of the brain which has supplied them. The practical upshot of all this is that if you stick a Babel fish in your ear you can instantly understand anything said to you in any form of language. The speech patterns you actually hear decode the brainwave matrix which has been fed into your mind by your Babel fish. — Douglas Adams
Thought Patterns Sayings By David Bohm: Thought reflexes get conditioned very strongly, and they are very hard to change. And the Thought reflexes get conditioned very strongly, and they are very hard to change. And the also interfere. A reflex may connect to the endorphins and produce an impulse to hold that whole pattern forther. In other words, it produces a defensive reflex. Not merely is it stuck because it's chemically so well built up, but also there is a defensive reflex which defends against evidence which might weaken it. Thus it all happens, one reflex after another after another. It's just a vast system of reflexes. And they form a 'structure' as they get more rigid. — David Bohm
Thought Patterns Sayings By Gerard Donovan: I saw the patterns of history and thought that a human might be eighty per I saw the patterns of history and thought that a human might be eighty per cent chemicals, eighteen per cent his past, and two per cent feeling, creatures of habit. Which makes psychiatrists really pharmacists who have to listen longer. — Gerard Donovan
Thought Patterns Sayings By Robert M. Pirsig: But to tear down a factory or to revolt against a government or to avoid But to tear down a factory or to revolt against a government or to avoid repair of a motorcycle because it is a system is to attack effects rather than causes; and as long as the attack is upon effects only, no change is possible. The true system, the real system, is our present construction of systematic thought itself, rationality itself, and if a factory is torn down but the rationality which produced it is left standing, then that rationality will simply produce another factory. If a revolution destroys a systematic government, but the systematic patterns of thought that produced that government are left intact, then those patterns will repeat themselves in the succeeding government. There's so much talk about the system. And so little understanding. — Robert M. Pirsig
Thought Patterns Sayings By Stasi Eldredge: Let God begin to rewrite your story. Invite him to show you your past through Let God begin to rewrite your story. Invite him to show you your past through his eyes. Ask him to surface good memories you have forgotten. He would love to do it. There is healing to be had there. There is a replacing of regret with mercy. Though our past has shaped us, we are not our past. Though our failures and sin have had an effect on who we are, we are not defined by our failures or our sin. Though thought patterns and addictions have overwhelmed us, we are not overcome by them and we will never be overcome by them. Jesus has won our victory. Jesus is our victory. — Stasi Eldredge
Thought Patterns Sayings By David Hoffmeister: Turning something over to the Holy Spirit is a leap of faith that lets go Turning something over to the Holy Spirit is a leap of faith that lets go of attempting to control outcomes. The core of alcoholism, anorexia, bulimia, smoking and a host of things the world calls addictions is control. The little willingness the Holy Spirit asks is the key to letting go of the attempt to manage the body and the world, which is the insane attempt to maintain a self-concept image that God did not create. An idea to contemplate from the Course is this: "Seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world." The requirement is to change your thinking, not to focus on behavior and form. Behavior flows from thought, and transformation of the mind is synonymous with changing thought patterns from ego-based to Spirit-based. — David Hoffmeister
Thought Patterns Sayings By Doris Lessing: A Nasrudin 'joke' may at first seem unfunny, or pointless, but will after study change A Nasrudin 'joke' may at first seem unfunny, or pointless, but will after study change and begin to reveal itself: you have uncovered the first level of meaning, and will soon observe your thought patterns shift as you watch them; you will have made the first crack in the wall of assumptions, the conditioned thinking (designated 'The Old Villain') which imprisons each and every one of us, the worst of which is to think that the visible world is all there is, that a man's or a mouse's view of life is the true one. — Doris Lessing
Thought Patterns Sayings By Janvier Chouteu-Chando: The basis of love that most people share is the intimacy they developed with their The basis of love that most people share is the intimacy they developed with their partners, the intensity of their attraction, or the similarity of their thought patterns, — Janvier Chouteu-Chando
Thought Patterns Sayings By Marshall McLuhan: New media may at first appear as mere codes of transmission for older achievement and New media may at first appear as mere codes of transmission for older achievement and established patterns of thought. But nobody could make the mistake of supposing that phonetic writing merely made it possible for the Greeks to set down in visual order what they had though and known before writing. In the same way printing made literature possible. It did not merely encode literature. — Marshall McLuhan

Thought Patterns Sayings By Marcus Buckingham: You have a filter, a characteristic way of responding to the world around you. We You have a filter, a characteristic way of responding to the world around you. We all do. Your filter tells you which stimuli to notice and which to ignore; which to love and which to hate. It creates your innate motivations - are you competitive, altruistic, or ego driven? It defines how you think - are you disciplined or laissez-faire, practical or strategic? It forges your prevailing attitudes - are you optimistic or cynical, calm or anxious, empathetic or cold? It creates in you all of your distinct patterns of thought, feeling, and behavior. In effect, your filter is the source of your talents. — Marcus Buckingham
Thought Patterns Sayings By Ivan M. Granger: Poetry has an immediate effect on the mind. The simple act of reading poetry alters Poetry has an immediate effect on the mind. The simple act of reading poetry alters thought patterns and the shuttle of the breath. Poetry induces trance. Its words are chant. Its rhythms drumbeats. Its images become the icons of the inner eye. Poetry is more than a description of the sacred experience; it carries the experience itself. — Ivan M. Granger

I constantly I try to remember the things that keep me peaceful, happy, and compassionate. I constantly write notes on my phone about little discoveries I make in terms of perspective and habitual thought patterns. My memory seems to let me down, so this really helps me. — Richard Brancatisano
Thought Patterns Sayings By Clifford A. Pickover: Obviously, the final goal of scientists and mathematicians is not simply the accumulation of facts Obviously, the final goal of scientists and mathematicians is not simply the accumulation of facts and lists of formulas, but rather they seek to understand the patterns, organizing principles, and relationships between these facts to form theorems and entirely new branches of human thought. For me, mathematics cultivates a perpetual state of wonder about the nature of mind, the limits of thoughts, and our place in this vast cosmos. — Clifford A. Pickover
Thought Patterns Sayings By Albert Bandura: What people think, believe, and feel affects how they behave. The natural and extrinsic effects What people think, believe, and feel affects how they behave. The natural and extrinsic effects of their actions, in turn, partly determine their thought patterns and affective reactions. — Albert Bandura
Thought Patterns Sayings By Sara Novic: I stared at my sister. For once she was quiet. Her eyes were glassy and I stared at my sister. For once she was quiet. Her eyes were glassy and she looked deep in thought or far away, as if she had already crossed the ocean. I wished I knew more about her and less about the patterns of her sickness. She was so small, so busy surviving that we hadn't gotten the chance to be like other sisters, but her hands still fit well in mine. — Sara Novic
Thought Patterns Sayings By Frank Herbert: Now, motivational patterns are going to be similar among all espionage agents. That is to Now, motivational patterns are going to be similar among all espionage agents. That is to say: there will be certain types of motivation that are similar despite differing schools or opposed aims. You will study first how to separate this element for your analysis - in the beginning, through interrogation patterns that betray the inner orientation of the interrogators; secondly, by close observation of language-thought orientation of those under analysis. You will find it fairly simple to determine the root languages of your subjects, of course, both through voice inflection and speech pattern. — Frank Herbert
Thought Patterns Sayings By Barbara Jordan: If you had to work in the environment of Washington, D.C., as I do, and If you had to work in the environment of Washington, D.C., as I do, and watch those men who are so imprisoned and so confined by their eighteenth-century thought patterns, you would know that if anybody is going to be liberated, it's men who must be liberated in this country. — Barbara Jordan
Thought Patterns Sayings By James Runcie: The game created a parallel world, Sidney thought. It was drama; it was excitement; it The game created a parallel world, Sidney thought. It was drama; it was excitement; it was a metaphor for the vicissitudes of life. It was also quintessentially English: democratic (there were teams with all levels of ability), communal (the cricket 'square' was often at the centre of the village green), and convivial (the game was full of eccentric characters.) It was the representation of a nation's cuisine, with its milky tea, cucumber sandwiches, Victoria sponge and lashings of beer. It was also beautiful to watch, with fifteen men, dressed in white and moving on green, creating geometrical patterns that looked as if they had been choreographed by a divine choreographer.

Thought Patterns Sayings By Sarah J. Maas: The undergarments were plain-and folded. Who folded their undergarments? Celeana thought of her enormous closet The undergarments were plain-and folded. Who folded their undergarments? Celeana thought of her enormous closet back home, exploding with colour and different fabrics and patterns, all tossed together. Her undergarments, while expensive, usually wound up in a heap in their drawer. Sam, probably, folded his undergarments. Though, depending on how much of him Arobynn left intact, he might not be able to now. Arobynn would never permanently main her, but Sam might have faired worse. Sam had always been the expendable one. — Sarah J. Maas
Thought Patterns Sayings By Kaza Kingsley: Seriously?" Spartacus looked amazed. "I thought this looked the same to everyone. We're in a Seriously?" Spartacus looked amazed. "I thought this looked the same to everyone. We're in a massive library that stretches all the way to the sky. It's beautiful, with oak and teak shelves, gorgeous patterns in the wood, and beautiful books. There's endless amounts to read and look at. — Kaza Kingsley
Thought Patterns Sayings By Vladimir Nabokov: I remember a cartoon depicting a chimney sweep falling from the roof of a tall I remember a cartoon depicting a chimney sweep falling from the roof of a tall building and noticing on the way that a signboard had one word spelled wrong, and wondering in his headlong flight why nobody had thought of correcting it. In a sense, we all are crashing to our death from the top story of our birth to the flat stones of the churchyard and wondering with an immortal Alice in Wonderland at the patterns of the passing wall. This capacity to wonder at trifles - no matter the imminent peril - these asides of the spirit, these footnotes in the volume of life are the highest forms of consciousness, and it is in this childishly speculative state of mind, so different from common sense and its logic, that we know the world to be good. — Vladimir Nabokov
Thought Patterns Sayings By Brene Brown: One of the most profound changes in my life happened when I got my head One of the most profound changes in my life happened when I got my head around the relationship between gratitude and joy. I always thought that joyful people were grateful people. I mean, why wouldn't they be? They have all of that goodness to be grateful for. But after spending countless hours collecting stories about joy and gratitude, three powerful patterns emerged: Without exception, every person I interviewed who described living a joyful life or who described themselves as joyful, actively practiced gratitude and attributed their joyfulness to their gratitude practice. Both joy and gratitude were described as spiritual practices that were bound to a belief in human interconnectedness and a power greater than us. People were quick to point out the differences between happiness and joy as the difference between a human emotion that's connected to circumstances and a spiritual way of engaging with the world that's connected to practicing gratitude. — Brene Brown
Thought Patterns Sayings By N. T. Wright: The Psalms are the steady, sustained subcurrent of healthy Christian living. They shaped the praying The Psalms are the steady, sustained subcurrent of healthy Christian living. They shaped the praying and vocation even of Jesus himself. They can and will do the same for us. The Psalms do this, to begin with, simply because they are poetry set to music: a classic double art form. To write or read a poem is already to enter into a different kind of thought world from our normal patterns. A poem is not merely ordinary thought with a few turns and twiddles added on to make it pretty or memorable. A poem (a good poem, at least) uses its poetic form to probe deeper into human experience than ordinary speech or writing is usually able to do, to pull back a veil and allow the hearer or reader to sense other dimensions.

Thought Patterns Sayings By Malebo Sephodi: I personally am tired of being a subject of study and rescue. A subject that I personally am tired of being a subject of study and rescue. A subject that is not imagined upon to have their own thought patterns. — Malebo Sephodi
Thought Patterns Sayings By Maxwell Maltz: Visualizing, creative mental picturing, is no more difficult than what you do when you remember Visualizing, creative mental picturing, is no more difficult than what you do when you remember some scene out of the past, or worry about the future. Acting out new action patterns is no more difficult than deciding, then following through on tying your shoes in a new and different manner each morning, instead of continuing to tie them in your old habitual way, without thought or decision. — Maxwell Maltz
Thought Patterns Sayings By Ernest Holmes: With every pill we have prescribed for us we should also be given a creative With every pill we have prescribed for us we should also be given a creative prayer, a suggested way to correct our destructive patterns of thought. — Ernest Holmes
Thought Patterns Sayings By C.J. Sansom: How men fear the chaos of the world, I thought, and the yawning eternity hereafter. How men fear the chaos of the world, I thought, and the yawning eternity hereafter. So we build patterns to explain its terrible mysteries and reassure ourselves we are safe in this world and beyond. — C.J. Sansom
Thought Patterns Sayings By Walter Isaacson: When he was turning thirty, Jobs had used a metaphor about record albums. He was When he was turning thirty, Jobs had used a metaphor about record albums. He was musing about why folks over thirty develop rigid thought patterns and tend to be less innovative. " People get stuck in those patterns, just like grooves in a record, and they never get out of them, " he said. At age forty-five, Jobs was now about to get out of his groove. — Walter Isaacson
Thought Patterns Sayings By Dianne Robbins: As you think a thought, it goes out into the ethers, where it gathers energy As you think a thought, it goes out into the ethers, where it gathers energy and then returns to you. It parallels the weather patterns on Earth, where your negative thoughts go out and gather negative energy, bringing the negativity back to you on its return trip. So — Dianne Robbins
Thought Patterns Sayings By Susanna Clarke: For the next hour and a half he tried all the magic he could think For the next hour and a half he tried all the magic he could think of. He cast spells of remembering, spells of finding, spells of awakening, spells to concentrate the mind, spells to dispel nightmares and evil thoughts, spells to find patterns in chaos, spells to find a path when one was lost, spells of demystification, spells of discernment, spells to increase intelligence, spells to cure sickness and spells to repair a limb that is shattered. Some of the spells were long and complicated. Some were a single word. Some had to be said out loud. Some had only to be thought. Some had no words at all but consisted of a single gesture. Some were spells that Strange and Norrell had employed in some form or other every day for the last five years. Some had probably not been used for centuries. Some used a mirror; two used a tiny bead of blood from the magician's finger; and one used a candle and a piece of ribbon. But they all had this in common: they had no effect upon the King whatsoever. — Susanna Clarke
Thought Patterns Sayings By Neil Strauss: We get stuck in old thought and behavior patterns that may have been effective when We get stuck in old thought and behavior patterns that may have been effective when we were twelve months or twelve years old, but now only serve to hold us back. And, while those around us may have no problem correcting our minor flaws, they let the big ones slide, because it would mean attacking who we are. — Neil Strauss
Thought Patterns Sayings By Chogyam Trungpa: Fundamentally there is just open space, the basic ground, what we really are. Our most Fundamentally there is just open space, the basic ground, what we really are. Our most fundamental state of mind, before the creation of ego, is such that there is basic openness, basic freedom, a spacious quality; and we have now and have always had this openness. Take, for example, our everyday lives and thought patterns. When we see an object, in the first instant there is a sudden perception which has no logic or conceptualization to it at all; we just perceive the thing in the open ground. Then immediately we panic and begin to rush about trying to add something to it, either trying to find a name for it or trying to find pigeonholes in which we could locate and categorize it. Gradually things develop from there. This development does not take the shape of a solid entity. Rather, this development is illusory, the mistaken belief in a "self" or "ego." Confused mind is inclined to view itself as a solid, ongoing thing, but it is only a collection of tendencies, events. — Chogyam Trungpa
Thought Patterns Sayings By Daniel Ionson: Your patterns of thought, existing bodies of knowledge, beliefs, predispositions, etc. are the 'stuff of Your patterns of thought, existing bodies of knowledge, beliefs, predispositions, etc. are the 'stuff of your mental universe'. We are always subject to the power of our mental inertia. The waves in our mental oceans can never be magically stilled, and are therefore always impacting our new beliefs, even when we become scrutinizing adults. It is simply impossible to 'wipe the slate clean' and start over. These effects remain with us throughout our entire lives. Even the beliefs that we later discard are difficult to completely negate, and leave their own residual effects. — Daniel Ionson
Thought Patterns Sayings By Josiah Royce: I never felt a feeling that I knew or could know to be unlike the I never felt a feeling that I knew or could know to be unlike the feelings of other people. I never consciously thought, except after patterns that the world or my fellows set for me. — Josiah Royce
Thought Patterns Sayings By John Frusciante: People fall into patterns at fast speeds, when really, to have a clear musical thought People fall into patterns at fast speeds, when really, to have a clear musical thought - the kind of musical thought that makes a melody work - our brains just can't think that fast. At a certain point, you're going on automatic. — John Frusciante
Thought Patterns Sayings By Damon Gameau: We can change our rewards. It just takes a shift in out thought patterns and We can change our rewards. It just takes a shift in out thought patterns and being gentle and patient with ourselves. — Damon Gameau
Thought Patterns Sayings By George Lakoff: A third position has been called "strong Al." When the Mind As Computer metaphor is A third position has been called "strong Al." When the Mind As Computer metaphor is believed as a deep scientific truth, the true believers interpret the ontology and the inferential patterns that the metaphor imposes on the mind as defining the essence of mind itself. For them, concepts are formal symbols, thought is computation (the manipulation of those symbols), and the mind is a computer program. — George Lakoff
Thought Patterns Sayings By Elisabeth Elliot: A man's thoughts dye his soul, attributed to Marcus Aurelius A man's thoughts dye his soul, attributed to Marcus Aurelius — Elisabeth Elliot
Thought Patterns Sayings By Bryant McGill: The more one has engaged in a particular pattern of thought, the more difficult it The more one has engaged in a particular pattern of thought, the more difficult it becomes to override these habitual patterns. — Bryant McGill
Thought Patterns Sayings By Marianne Williamson: If you allow your perceptions to be dominated by a status-quo perspective these thought forms If you allow your perceptions to be dominated by a status-quo perspective these thought forms create a network of status-quo mental habit patterns. — Marianne Williamson
Thought Patterns Sayings By H.E. Davey: By means of personal experimentation and observation, we can discover certain simple and universal truths. By means of personal experimentation and observation, we can discover certain simple and universal truths. The mind moves the body, and the body follows the mind. Logically then, negative thought patterns harm not only the mind but also the body. What we actually do builds up to affect the subconscious mind and in turn affects the conscious mind and all reactions. — H.E. Davey
Thought Patterns Sayings By Nassim Nicholas Taleb: They think that intelligence is about noticing things are relevant (detecting patterns); in a complex They think that intelligence is about noticing things are relevant (detecting patterns); in a complex world, intelligence consists in ignoring things that are irrelevant (avoiding false patterns) — Nassim Nicholas Taleb
Thought Patterns Sayings By Susanna Clarke: Bright yellow leaves flowed swiftly upon the dark, almost-black water, making patterns as they went. Bright yellow leaves flowed swiftly upon the dark, almost-black water, making patterns as they went. To Mr. Segundus the patterns looked a little like magical writing. 'But then,' he thought, 'So many things do. — Susanna Clarke
Thought Patterns Sayings By Richard Bach: That she won the game startled me cold. The way she won, the pattern of That she won the game startled me cold. The way she won, the pattern of her thought on the chessboard, charmed me warm again and then some. — Richard Bach
Thought Patterns Sayings By Claire Vaye Watkins: Like all our memories, we like to take it out once in a while and Like all our memories, we like to take it out once in a while and lay it flat on the kitchen table, the way my wife does with her sewing patterns, where we line up the shape of our lives against that which we thought it would be by now. — Claire Vaye Watkins
Thought Patterns Sayings By Karlheinz Stockhausen: Karlheinz Stockhausen to journalist: "I heard the piece Aphex Twin of Richard James carefully: I Karlheinz Stockhausen to journalist: "I heard the piece Aphex Twin of Richard James carefully: I think it would be very helpful if he listens to my work "Song of the Youth," which is electronic music, and a young boy's voice singing with himself. Because he would then immediately stop with all these post-African repetitions, and he would look for changing tempi and changing rhythms, and he would not allow to repeat any rhythm if it [was] varied to some extent and if it did not have a direction in its sequence of variations."

Aphex Twin to journalist: "I thought he should listen to a couple of tracks of mine: 'Didgeridoo,' then he'd stop making abstract, random patterns you can't dance to". — Karlheinz Stockhausen
Thought Patterns Sayings By Piero Ferrucci: How often-even before we began-have we declared a task 'impossible'? And how often have we How often-even before we began-have we declared a task 'impossible'? And how often have we construed a picture of ourselves as being inadequate? ... A great deal depends upon the thought patterns we choose and on the persistence with which we affirm them. — Piero Ferrucci
Thought Patterns Sayings By Dale Spender: Every medium - oral, written, print, and now electronic - has its own associated thought Every medium - oral, written, print, and now electronic - has its own associated thought patterns and mind sets. — Dale Spender
Thought Patterns Sayings By Cheryl Eckl: Sometimes things don't change the way we expect or want. But that doesn't mean the Sometimes things don't change the way we expect or want. But that doesn't mean the Universe is not hard at work on our behalf. It just means that life has its own way of helping us. And that often means bringing outworn patterns of thought or behavior to our attention so we can move closer to that deep, authentic Self we long for and that is always already present. — Cheryl Eckl
Thought Patterns Sayings By Jacque Fresco: One may reasonably ask: Why do people cling to the values and practices of the One may reasonably ask: Why do people cling to the values and practices of the past, when they so obviously no longer work? Long-standing thought patterns are hard to overcome because they often appear to serve the interests of the individual, and old ways of thinking are simpler and easier to handle. In a two-valued way of thinking, as in good and bad, right and wrong, love and hate, cause and effect, very little logical analysis is involved. — Jacque Fresco
Thought Patterns Sayings By Steven Pinker: Of course genes can't pull the levers of our behavior directly. But they affect the Of course genes can't pull the levers of our behavior directly. But they affect the wiring and workings of the brain, and the brain is the seat of our drives, temperaments and patterns of thought. Each of us is dealt a unique hand of tastes and aptitudes, like curiosity, ambition, empathy, a thirst for novelty or for security, a comfort level with the social or the mechanical or the abstract. Some opportunities we come across click with our constitutions and set us along a path in life. — Steven Pinker
Thought Patterns Sayings By Janet Fitch: They explained about the epidurals and drugs, but no one there was going to have They explained about the epidurals and drugs, but no one there was going to have drugs. They all wanted the natural experience. It all seemed wrapped in plastic, unreal, like stewardesses on planes demonstrating the seat belts and the patterns for orderly disembarkatation in case of a crash at sea, the people taking a glance at the cards in the seat pocket in front of them. Sure, they thought, no problem. A peek at the nearest exit and then they were ready for in-flight service, peanuts and a movie. — Janet Fitch
Thought Patterns Sayings By Janet Morris: If you want to write something completely unique, you will probably fail or at best If you want to write something completely unique, you will probably fail or at best write something without redeeming value. The mind works in certain patterns: the mind organizes facts in story form; it is your commonality with that body of human thought that makes a good book, not its estrangement from the common values that humans share. — Janet Morris
Thought Patterns Sayings By Bob Dylan: And it dawned on me that I might have to change my inner thought patterns And it dawned on me that I might have to change my inner thought patterns ... that I would have to start believing in possibilities that I wouldn't have allowed before, that I had been closing my creativity down to a very narrow, controllable scale ... that things had become too familiar and I might have to disorientate myself. p.71 — Bob Dylan
Thought Patterns Sayings By Donella H. Meadows: If a factory is torn down but the rationality which produced it is left standing, If a factory is torn down but the rationality which produced it is left standing, then that rationality will simply produce another factory. If a revolution destroys a government, but the systematic patterns of thought that produced that government are left intact, then those patterns will repeat themselves ... There's so much talk about the system. And so little understanding. - ROBERT PIRSIG, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance — Donella H. Meadows
