Man, I got my butt kicked last night. And not by anyone but myself.
Yeah, my mind is quite the opposite of “quiet”.
In fact, I purposely took note of the the majority of the thoughts that go through my mind. I discovered something quite frightening. Many of my thoughts are judgments and assumptions about others, and also criticisms of others. WOW! For someone who is purported to be a “lightworker”, that was some pretty amazing revelations.
So, I am tuning into my thoughts, becoming more conscious of what is going on in there. HELLO! Would the voices in my head just simmer down for a second!
Part of the journey, in fact, most of the journey is just to become conscious of what you are thinking. I know it will shift things for me (it already has), and as I practice mindfulness and meditation, I know my skills will improve. But improvement isn’t really the point. It is the practice.
(Already the critical voice in my head told me that I have to “get good” at it. Sheesh, shut up already!)
So today, just for moments, listen in to your head. Take note of what is going on in there. I am sure you’ll be amazed!
