Our thoughts.

                As I stare at the computer screen, my mind goes blank. Just like that, as if a switch went off, the thoughts that were, moments ago, scrambling for my attention, have all vanished! Like a group of playful kids, who, on damaging someone’s property, beat a hasty retreat, my thoughts did a disappearing act the moment I switched on my laptop!
            Despaired and on the verge of giving up all hope, I sit impatiently, struggling to bring some of them back and help me out in writing my post today. But, alas, none of them come to my rescue! So, in a bid to come up with something for the day’s post, I begin typing one word after another, grabbing any new thought that makes an attempt to enter the labyrinth of twisty tunnels that is my  brain. However, it helps as much as the earlier thoughts. A thought comes, and before I invite it in and indulge it with my attention, it disappears and in its place comes another, and soon, a game of cat and mouse begins.
           How funny are our thoughts! The times they are required the most, are the times they forsake us, leaving us red-faced. And, the times we want a deserted brain and a calm mind, these very same thoughts create utter chaos and drive us insane! And, the way we grumble about it all, as if our thoughts have grown a pair of wings or limbs, that they come and go as they please! It is we, who give them this freedom of movement, let them off the hook and give them a cozy place in our minds to stay as they please. To stay, and spoil the calm that we so desire.
          Let us all stop encouraging these thoughts and show them who’s the boss! That way, our mind will be free of any pollutants and we will be better able to make it work, to the best of its ability.
