    My thoughts get me into the most trouble.  It is this work, to refine my thoughts that has helped to refine my purpose in this world.  I am aware that I have to make a conscious choice about which thoughts I participate in and which I disengage from.  A rabbi once used a great analogy of computer pop-ups.  He said just like those inappropriate or deviant pop-ups that come across our computer screens, it is the same with the thoughts in our minds.  We can click on the pop-up and then go to that site and become immersed with that negative material -- sometimes we can't even get out!  Or, we can just push the delete key.  When those "pop-ups" come in to my mind, I have to choose to delete. Not go there.  Let it go.  This takes practice and I'm getting better at it.  I am much happier and less exhausted.  Just the awareness alone is such a miracle.
