Welcome Wednesday…here is your one thing:)
“There is nothing more important to true growth than realizing you are not the voice of the mind-you are the one who hears it.”
The wide open sky floats from horizon to horizon, ever present and fundamentally unchanging just like the pure awareness at the foundation of your life. You are this awareness.
Clouds come and go filling the sky with movement and dynamic shapes that grab our attention just like thoughts and sensations fill our minds. We don’t mistake the clouds for the sky. Yet somehow we “get lost” in thoughts almost automatically. Habits and conditioning begin to run our lives when we operate solely from the level of thought.
When we tease ourselves apart from the thoughts and connect with our awareness, we take back the reins. We are the thinker, not the thoughts. We decide how it will go. Shift your attention to the one who observes and watch how illusion and strife naturally soften.
Bring your attention back home on purpose so you can see the stories your mind creates and discover the freedom of finding a new story: one that lifts you up towards greater possibility and well being. It’s there somewhere. Keep looking. You’ll know when you find it because it will feel like the freedom of a wide open sky.
May you find peace in this crazy cloudy world.
