Greater Than Your Thoughts
Did you know that we are unique in creation in that we can observe ourselves thinking, while other creatures react to life, we can respond.
Think of what it means to be able you observe yourself thinking. You can stop unwanted thoughts when they happen, you can choose what you do want to think. You can separate yourself from unresourceful states. You can choose new courses of action. You can chart your own personal growth.
It takes some slowing down, or even better, some letting go, in order to do this. Have you ever noticed that the faster you drive, the more limited your response time becomes? You can’t manage the thoughts that blaze through your mind when you live at high speed. Slowing down and letting go gets you there faster.
