Learn to feel from within,
rather than think.
Thoughts can lie, but your
inner knowing cannot deceive you.
All thoughts are ultimately false.
See the fickleness of your thoughts.
They come and go, changing constantly.
Why be so quick to believe
every one of them?
Why let your thoughts have such
a strong influence on you
and what you do and
how you live
What remains when it's all stripped away?
What would it mean to really let in
this moment and be?
What thoughts, judgments,
desires, comparisons or complaints
would you have to drop from the mind?
You are your own slave driver.
Why expend so much time,
energy and effort constantly
trying to keep this dream
self in motion?
Catch yourself desiring success,
desiring fame, objects, states of
being. Even the desire to be
happy, more conscious, a
better, more loving person;
in the moment of catching it,
see if for what it is:
putting stock and attachment
in the dream.
Just a gal experimenting with what it means to live outside of mind.
