I just found a great trick to feel calm in my chaos.
We all talk to ourselves . On a good day we say I am fine and I am smart and I am good looking etc etc . On a lot of other days we say I am struggling , I am not sure , I am an idiot etc etc .
But who is the i . If you stop and repeatedly , daily ask this question every time your mind speaks of the “l am…” you might make a small discovery.
The I in your head is your ego. It’s a thought. Just like the thought ‘pink elephant with wings’.
Once you get the hang of this discovery it’s a super power. This means that the ego is a thought that passes … like all thoughts .
So your ego is not the i in your mind.
Still with me ?
Ok . The second discovery you have to realize that you are actually the thing ‘behind’ your thoughts. Yeah . You are the stuff behind your thoughts . To experience this try this trick — ask yourself — what am I thinking … and wait and watch what appears … don’t care what appears … but stuff will appear — the act of being able to watch your thoughts is the next super power.
The fact that you can watch your thoughts means you are the stuff behind your thoughts . That stuff is pure energy.
Stay with me . Don’t let your mind distract you away from this . For just another minute.
That stuff behind your thoughts is you.
So next time you say I am stupid … just correct that thought and say .. I am thinking I am stupid.
You are not your thoughts . You are the pure stuff behind them. Practice this daily and you will suffer less and less everyday .
