You know those days when the weight of your thoughts seems to take on a mass greater than metaphor?
Yeah, we all have them.
Days when the power of our thoughts becomes crystal clear.
Thoughts create real feelings and inspire real action (or in-action). Which means we need to respect the force in our lives that is thinking.
Next week, I'll get in to how to change or let go of thoughts you don't want. Before we go there, though, I want you to try just observing your thoughts.
Observing thoughts means not engaging with your thoughts. Adopt a third person perspective to help you play the part of an impartial outsider to your thoughts. And then, with all the cheekiness of someone with an ear to the door, listen in.
Listen not to judge, not to comment, not to inspire any sort of action. Not yet.
Listen purely to be aware.
Disinterested inaction is not the end goal, but it is a means to cultivating choice. Choice in your actions, thoughts, and even, sometimes, your feelings. (Emotions are devilishly hard to control, though.)
Shall we give it a try?
