The Soap Bubble Concept

Soap bubbles are extremely thin film of soapy water enclosing air that forms a hollow sphere with an iridescent surface. Soap bubbles usually last for only a few seconds before bursting, either on their own or on contact with another object.
Our fleeting thoughts are exactly like these soap bubbles.
In a single day we come across multiple thoughts, and our adapted Human brain generates impulses and response to each one of them. What is truly fascinating here is that, out of those multiple thoughts that you encounter, most of them are the same ones from the day before!
That means, whatever you are thinking about right now, was on your mind a day before too and the same thought a day before that!
Unlike soap bubbles, our stubborn thoughts are not as transient as we assume them to be. Our thoughts don’t usually go away on their own, they are either replaced by another reoccurring thought or they gradually evolve into becoming a larger expanded thought bubble with added complexities.
To avoid such kind of a soap bubbly situation, the most preferred and scientifically proven method is ‘Meditation’.
Meditating acts as an external force on each soap bubble, where in the bubble stops getting responses from our adapted brain. Instead, during meditation, the brain decides to quietly just watch this soap bubble until it fades away.
Meditation is a slow and gradual process of strengthening your brain muscles. It takes time and patience.
The beautiful impact of meditation is seen when you encounter the same bubble again the next day, and your ‘learner brain’ now refuses to feed this particular bubble anymore energy. Eventually, this particular bubble now left powerless fades away on its own.
The brain can be strengthened, sculpted and optimized if we chose to make it so.
The choice is ours, either surrendering to the massive chaos of expanding thought bubbles everywhere or strengthening our brain and teaching it how to control these bubbles or make them go away.
