Thank you very
I have heard one saying i.e.
"The happiest person is that one who thinks the most
interesting thoughts". I think it is a right statement. Is
it? If so, what type of thoughts are called interesting
thoughts. How can we think such type of thoughts to be the
I am always waiting for your
Here is my reply:
What a GREAT question! Thank you for asking it.
What interests one person may be of no interest to another.
So the answer is that you are happiest when you are
thinking the thoughts that are most interesting to
Let us say that you were fascinated by hawks, and wanted to
be a falconer (someone who keeps and hunts with birds of
prey). You love everything about this pasttime. For you,
you are probably going to be happier thinking about
falconing and birds of prey than having to think about
doing your business accounts or how to fix a TV.
So, most people are happiest when they are free to spend
time thinking about that which they are most passionate
about? They are then following their
There is another way of looking at this. And that is,
thinking thoughts that give you pleasure, as opposed to
thinking thoughts that bring you pain. Usually this means
thinking positive, life-enhancing, goal-orientated or
grateful thoughts, rather than negative, cynical,
destructive, or complaining type thoughts. One set of
thoughts leads to positive feelings; the other set of
thoughts leads to negative feelings.
So, every moment we have a choice as to the thoughts that
we can entertain in our minds. Our creative power is in
choosing the thoughts that we think. We can choose thoughts
that make us happy or thoughts that make us miserable.
Thoughts that make us happy could be said to be more
interesting to us, and to others, because they make us
happier and a better person to be around.
Lastly, spontaneous happiness is a by-product of being
creative, productive and absorbed in working towards worthy
goals. Any thoughts that contribute to our own growth, and
help us to be more creative, more productive, and get us
closer to our goals can be described as 'interesting'.
An interesting thought that can make us more creative or
productive, is 'how can I make this even better?'
In the School of Thinking they teach an
attitude which is codified as CVStoBVS meaning 'Current
View of Situation to Better View of Situation'. It means
you always look at what you presently have and think
about how you can either make it better or appreciate it
more. This engages your thinking and sets you on the
path of creative living.
I hope this helps answer your questions on this subject.
Wishing you the best of the best,
