We all know there’s something going on with this mind, and it’s not always helpful, it seems.
We have thoughts about our own thinking:
- I should change my thoughts
- I need to fix my mind
- I have to eliminate my negative thoughts
- I need to stop thinking completely
- This thinking is horrible, bad, wrong, idiotic
- I need to destroy my “ego”
But this big thought of needing to change thought itself, so I can stop being driven crazy or eating the wrong way….
….is another war against reality.
Are you sure it’s true, you need to fix your mind?
Hmmm. Yes. Seems true.
Can you absolutely know it’s true?
No. If I was in charge, I would have changed by now, but something’s going on here that is beyond “me”….and this mind appears to “think”.
How do you react when you believe you should change your mind, your thoughts, that you should battle with them?
I flip flop between aggression towards thinking, and despair about thinking. I feel very discouraged. I run around the world trying to find out where I can crush my thoughts, fix them, or switch them. Who can help?
I chant positive affirmations.
Sigh. It’s a lot of work.
Who would you be without your story of needing to fix your mind?
No thought of fixing this?
A strange predicament.
But interesting. And then, perhaps….very freeing.
