Pay attention, pay attention, pay attention!

Rick Hanson in “Buddhas Brain” explains how the minds axis tilts slightly negative, and how negative thought attaches like Velcro.
.
When our mind is ruminating in memory, drumming up doubt and worry, suffering is guaranteed.
.
The solution: We need to get out of our head, we need to take action.
.
Follow the hands, arms, legs and eyes intently.
.
Pay attention to what you see and touch, feel your hands and feet, connect with the body.
.
Get out of your head, breathe, let go, focus.
.
Let judgment fade for a minute, feel the body sensations attached to those emotional thoughts.
.
Again, pay attention to the process, not the perceived emotional story.
.
Doubt and worry can consume an entire life.
.
Doubt and worry arrive when we quit paying attention to now.

  1. I see. Whenever you move, move consciously. Whatever you do, do it with attention, the high quality. : )))

  2. Be your breath, let your senses guide you not thought.

    Follow intuition, your inner guide, spirit and life will expand.

    A recent quote of yours and this may not be 100% word for word by Mark Twain

    “The worst thing that ever happened in my life, never happened”. We all do this from time to time. What a waste.
