Consideration

                                       

I was about to think, and then I began to think about what I was about to think about. I am thinking, thinking about what I am thinking about, to see if I should be thinking about what I am thinking about.  I am thinking, thinking about my thoughts:  What if I am thinking about that which I should not be thinking about?  I am thinking, thinking about framing my thoughts.  I am thinking, thinking about been certain about what I am uncertain about. I am thinking, thinking about doubt, thinking about getting it out.
I am thinking, thinking about thinking how to think.  I am thinking, thinking that I am my thoughts.  I am thinking, thinking that thoughts can lead the mind astray.  I am thinking, thinking that I need to picture the change; before I attempt to change the picture.  I am thinking,   thinking that if I don’t understand the misunderstanding:  I am bound to misunderstand the understanding.
I am considering my thoughts, considering my considerations;   to see if what I am considering is worthy of consideration.  I am considering words, word as in word – word is in race, word as in place, word like space – spacious space, inner space, outer space, head space, foot space, and my space.  I am considering,   considering maintaining pace within this universal space.  I am considering,   considering that I don’t have to do what I intend to do – but I must do something even when I am doing nothing.
I am considering words, words like implosive and explosive, inclusion and exclusion, attraction, distraction and extraction.  I am considering light:  Flashlight, searchlight, spotlight, high light, low light, sun light, star light, stop and go light, brakes light, tail light and head light.  I am considering word like minefield.  I am considering mine.  Mine as an explosive device:  Mine as a valuable resource - mine as belonging to me.  I am considering, considering the value of my mine.  I am mindful; mindful of mining this mine of mine, which is worth more than all the diamond, gold and silver mines.

    Nice, I like how it seems to be complex, but it isnt if you really think about it.
