There is so much talk these last few years about how important your thoughts are.
That your thoughts literally create your reality.
That you must only think positive thoughts. Sometimes we get so scared about the slightest negative thought, that it freaks us out.
I have news for you. It’s the SECRET secret that: It’s not just what you think about that matters. But how you feel about what you think about that makes the real difference.
We have over 65,000 thoughts each day, most of which are happening too fast to even keep a track of.
The myth is that it’s your thoughts that make the difference. It’s not so much the thoughts you think, but the importance you give them that are the key.
What importance are you giving your thoughts?
How seriously are you taking your thoughts?
What thoughts are you identifying with and attaching yourself to?
The more seriously you take your thoughts, the more you identify with and as those thoughts, the more real they become. Then those thoughts become a reality for you and depending, can either limit you or free you.
What is your relationship with your thoughts?
If you fight your mind trying to force yourself to only think positive thoughts, you are likely to create more stress for yourself and block the natural flow.
So don’t mind your mind.
Simply observe it. If you can observe it. There is a space. And in that space is a freedom to choose your right action.
If you listen to everything your mind tells you, you will never reach your full potential. It will convince you of so many things that are not real, which if you believe, will rob you of your dreams.
Thoughts are generated from your conditioning and childhood programming, most of which we are not even aware of much of the time. We think we are free only to realize that many of the thoughts that might be playing in our minds are old stories and tapes from the past. The more you identify with these stories, the less freedom you have to truly act authentically in this moment, and as a result, recreate the past over and over again.
I am not enough.
I am going to screw up.
I am a failure.
I will never make it.
I don’t deserve it.
What’s wrong with me?
I am not worthy.
I am ugly.
I cannot do it.
What thoughts are you giving power to?
What thoughts are you making important and real?
The thoughts you think aren’t so much the issue. It is the importance you give them.
Thoughts come and go.
What you are is unchanging.
So know the SECRET secret: You are not the mind. You are not your thoughts. You are so much more. It’s not your thoughts that matter, but how you feel about them and the importance you give them.
Observe your thoughts without judgement.
Let them float by.
Like clouds in the sky.
Give it a try.
And you will see that you will fly.
