Distracted versus Focus Mind!!!!

.
.
A distracted mind wanders into quicksand over and over again.

 

 

Worry, doubt, anxiety, resentment, jealousy, and fear lie beneath our distraction.

 


The distracted mind tunes into the noise, the focused mind observes.

 

 

The distracted mind is like Velcro, always slowing down, viewing the accident in the other lane, always attracted to the light of confusion.

 


The focused mind builds awareness and thus has the ability to let all the noise fade into oblivion.

 


Mindfulness is the moment to moment application of focus (awareness).

 


When we find ourselves distracted, we use our focus practice to come back to now, empty of thought.

 

At first, our focus on the breath is more mechanical, becoming more natural and organic with practice.

 

Distracted states:
Worry: The past failures bleed into our future.
Doubt: We judge failure or embarrassment is possible.
Jealousy: Our selfish part needs more.
Anger: Rarely needed, constantly overused.
Fear: Thought and emotion create its own habitual fear.
Anxious: Leads into dissociative thought.
Pessimism: A negative way of living.
