we believe that thinking will resolve things, but the mind doesn’t know when to quit.”

“The Need to Please”:

“The mind is always evaluating, analyzing, and worrying. For example, we constantly analyze what others think about us and expect from us, what we should do in response, and what will happen if we don’t comply.

In addition, our thinking involves nearly constant appraisal of our experience and how we’re doing.

We evaluate unpleasant and painful experiences so that we can avoid them, and we try to plan how we can maximize pleasant experiences.

For the most part, we believe that thinking will resolve things, but the mind doesn’t know when to quit.”

My two cents: Think of these doors as thoughts, judgments with strong emotion.

 


We can spend all day inspecting, evaluating or judging what lies behind each door.

 


This is destructive, wastes our life force and leads to suffering.

 

 

Our goal is to leave these doors alone, trade them in for this present moment.

 

 

Tragedy and loss await you behind every door.
