Quite some years ago some friends figured out that I must be clairvoyant. One of them even asked me if I could read their minds, I said, "Yes of course I could." She then asked me if I could tell her what she was thinking, but I answered that I was not interested in "her" thoughts (gesturing quotes with my fingers) because, "Whatever you are thinking are not your thoughts anyway. Why waste our time on that...?!"
Luckily she did not say - as people usually would - that my answer was a cop-out, instead she wanted to know how come her thoughts could not be hers while, after all, she felt them to be in her own head.
I explained along the 'lines of thinking" in the following links: (please click the links when ready)
She then said, "So really, my mind is like a shopping bag, whatever is in there I bought, but with shopping stuff I know that the source of that stuff is not me, while with my thoughts I assume that the source is me… ... ...
You know what, you are right, why should I buy into my thoughts...? I mean why should I buy into the assumption that my thoughts ARE actually mine? Huh… I most often don’t even like "my" thoughts (gesturing quotes with her fingers.) Ha, why am I behaving like a clairvoyant thinking I know my thoughts while I don’t even believe that anybody can be clairvoyant."
