Humans have thousands of thoughts every day! Imagine giving weight and attention to each and every one of them.

Your whole day will be gone in a swirl of thinking, of obsessing and worrying about what your mind tells you.

We sometimes misinterpret these thoughts as reality. And how that happens is:

− We give strong attention to a thought and then, of course naturally start building other thoughts on top of it. For example, I am so busy, I have a lot to do, I don’t have enough time, I’m so stressed out, etc.

− Then these thoughts will automatically generate the feelings we link it to. Therefore, the idea of being overwhelmed will make us feel stressed, irritated and anxious.

− Finally, these feelings will manifest themselves in our physical life, and we will start to even look stressed and exhausted.

So, what I learned from my personal experience is that being an observer of my own thoughts is the key to freedom from the mind.

And that helped me to; first, learn that my thoughts are just thoughts and nothing more than that. Second, I always have the option to choose how I want to react to a thought– Do I want to adopt it and become a huge stress freak show? Do I want to take it as motivation to schedule my day in a better way? Or, Do I want to let it be and dissolve into the nothingness it already is, and go back to what I was doing in the best way I know how.

Only then, will you feel freedom in its purest form, you will no longer be a prisoner of your own mind, lost in a swirl of thoughts for hours on each day.

“Observe your thoughts, don’t believe them.”

– Eckhart Tolle
