An Veteran once told me Memories are like fire ” It can warm you up and also leave you hurt if touched ” as a young man in my 20s then never really got it at that time , fast forward some more years , now in my late 30’s I am starting to see what he meant .
Its interesting how we all keep those thoughts and memories alive , the happy ones in the front and bad ones at the back .
Has anyone ever been successful in trying to forget something consciously ?
You have a thought , it’s created , now try to forget or delete or remove that thought that was initially there , like it never was there in your head /mind , try to do it consciously and it most probably never goes away , but leave it unchecked , not thought about , stuff more other thoughts over that one .. and it slowly fades away . Like energy – they say can neither be created nor destroyed . A thought can be created but it can’t be destroyed . Even if you forget it , it’s just forgotten, not wiped clean – unless you bang you head somewhere and get amnesia off course !! even then chances are you may get it back with the next bang !
Certain times a thought can just vanish in the blink of an eye .I experienced this when I looked at the question paper , for my recent exams …suddenly there was nothing in my head ..where did all the answers go ???!!! 😀 , only to come back when we discuss the question paper after the exams!! ) Now where was all my answers hidden 😛 ???
So can we delete a thought in our head ?..still pondering …. I still can’t get this thought out my head !! 🙂
