Deep thought provoking questions on reactive thinking shine a light on the automatic function of the mind. Stuck on automatic our mind reels at surprising speed, leaving no room for anything else to enter. Much of our reactive thinking happens at a sub-conscious level. Bringing this activity to light - becoming aware of the reactive mind - we are able to act instead of react. We gain the freedom to respond to life instead.
There is a close link between thoughts, actions, habit and character. The thoughts we think, words we speak, actions we take, and habits we develop - all play an important role in shaping our lives. These form a karmic road to life change.
These stepping stones can be walked consciously or unconsciously. They can be taken proactively or reactively. Taken consciously - proactively - they lead to personal growth and positive life change. Shifting from reactive to proactive thinking we increasingly walk towards destiny with eyes wide open.
Taken unconsciously - reactively - they lead to a path that isn't of our choosing. Change still happens, but it's random and chaotic. True choice for change is nowhere to be found. Direction is lost. We are pushed towards fate with eyes glued shut.
