Being Doubtful of No-Doubt Well-Intentioned Things
I've been seeing this photo making the rounds, and I've gotta say... I do not think this is wholly accurate? I mean, we won't even get into the fact that I'm pretty sure it's impossible to completely control your thoughts. Nobody is going to convince me that the Dalai Lama doesn't irrationally hate the sidewalk when it trips him. (F*!$^&% PAVEMENT PUT THAT CRACK THERE ON PURPOSE.)
But! This idea is also fundamentally flawed because it forgets about all the people who would be like, sweet! I have super-powerful thoughts and therefore can do SUPER-POWERFUL THINGS! Like conquer the neighborhood Baskin-Robins and force all its employees to make me ice cream day and night!
Not that I, uh, would ever think such a thing. But I'm just sayin'.
