What Happens When You Don’t Observe Your Thought?

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
