Our Thoughts

thinking1

Can we choose our own thoughts?

Trying to bring out thoughts we consider to be our own, we soon realize that we cannot do that, but that they instead reach us by a reaction of the brain to an external event. We have no control on what thoughts surge in our minds. We can only hear, perceive, and eventually interpret them. No thoughts, just as no emotions for that matter, are our own, but instead Arrive to us.
