It is your thoughts that create
your heavens and your hells.
Free yourself by no longer
giving priority to your
thoughts and thought patterns.
Unravel these thought patterns
by really seeing them.
Thoughts of desire.
Thoughts of complaint.
Thoughts that this moment may
be wrong in some way.
Thoughts of needing anything other
than this moment to be happy.
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
Your Perfect Destiny
By dropping mind content
and coming into the full sensory
awareness of the moment,
you open up to Self in more of its
fullness than the mind
can possibly know.
This is to know your Self.
Drop the mind and let in the
moment in its entirety, in
its full felt, lived expression.
Your perfect destiny is
always unfolding in this moment.
Poem from Notes to Self: Meditations on Being
“But how,” you ask, “Can I stop thinking?”
You can’t actually. But you can stop putting so much emphasis on your thoughts.
You can also regularly ask yourself who you really are, which puts you in touch with your essential self and minimizes your mind’s stranglehold over you.
If all else fails, meditate. No fancy bells and whistles required. All you have to do is just sit there and be.
Just a gal experimenting with what it means to live outside of mind.
