Thoughts are like air if we do not grasp them

Once we recognize that thoughts are just empty,
.
.
the mind will no longer have the power to deceive us.

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

.
If I let my mind wander, it attaches to certain thoughts, certain negative self images, certain old  feelings of u worthiness.
.
.
First action is to let go and observe these past trauma links as they fade.
.
.
Second, breathe, focus and experience your senses right now (see, hear, taste, touch or smell).
.
.
Third, repeat your affirmation: In this moment right now I accept all of me.
.
.
Last, bring awareness to the truth about thoughts, they are transparent, ephemeral and powerless.
.
.
Thoughts are like air, if we let them fade, no one knows they existed.

  1. The most practical mindful advice I ever got was ‘What you focus on grows, what you let go of withers and dies” You gave be that advice and it stuck. It’s done wonders in helping me understand that if I indulge in thoughts about past hurts I’m only strengthening that memory and pain. You’re a wise man. Thank you!

  2. Thank you for your gratitude

    That sentence came from Rick Hansen in BUddhas Brain

    Basic neuroscience, What fires together wires together
    Where we focus our attention grows and where we withhold our attention withers and dies
