Control

3 Feb

For the next 30 seconds, DO NOT think about a White Bear. Think about ANYTHING, anything in this vast, complicated universe–just not that White Bear.
Go.

Any luck?

Didn’t think so. Most people take solace in the fact that although the world spins and shit happens, we can control ourselves. But can we? If control is the ability to filter, thoughts, actions, beliefs/prejudices, and we can’t even really do that, then what are we? Not the ego-inflated individual human being which we construct ourselves to be. More like…just another sine-wave entity waving through the ecosystem with the leaves and the White Bears.To me, that is comforting.
