energy mind field

Today's reading is about the energy of our mind and our thoughts. When you start to pay attention to the thoughts that are roaming around in your head it can be a bit astonishing. We can be riddled with more negative thoughts than we realize. As with the way we act and speak affects others so do our thoughts. It is amazing how much things change when we get a handle on the commentary that takes place in our heads.
I started paying attention to this a few months ago when I realized that my mind chatter was getting out of hand. I had a thought comment on everything that was going on around me. Thought s an peoples driving skills or what someone else was talking about. Thoughts on peoples appearance or choice of landscaping. It's fine when the thought is complementary but when it is a criticism it does no good for me or them. What makes me superior? If I must have a thought if someone is driving badly then I have tried to change it to a prayer for every one's safety and that the person driving is all right. This way I'm offering support instead of just having a negative opinion.
How is the energy in your mind field today?
