Doing as your true self

It’s amazing just how much of our life we spend on autopilot.

Day in, day out, on a weekly, monthly, yearly, sometimes a whole lifetime spent doing stuff out of habit and because others do it too.

When do we stop to actually really analyse what we do? Rarely, as we are in our unconscious mind-controlled thinking state almost all day, every day.

It takes a consciously focused moment to pause and reflect on what we are doing to even begin to see the habits and often how insane they are. It then takes a habit-forming change to start becoming conscious as the default state. Then increasingly, what we do flows from our essence and true being and we are doing for the joy of doing in that moment, not habitually doing as a means to some fantasy future ends.

Be aware, be awake, see what you are doing without being aware, and then you can change it, you can then do as your true self.

I think, therefore…

If we took the energy and time that we spend thinking each day and used that to consciously focus on the present moment, free from the mental noise, just imagine how different our life would be.

60,000 thoughts per day on average, with probably 59,999 being thoughts that we had an hour ago, a day ago, a month ago, in fact, for an entire lifetime.

Silencing the mind creates space within, space for new things to arise from our very essence and with that space we can allow them to grow and to be manifested. If there is only constant thought, then there is no space for anything else.

The ability to think does not prove existence. The conscious awareness that witnesses our thought and other senses prove that our true being is the awareness, the knower, that is beyond thought. We are not our mind.

I think, therefore I’m nothing but thought.
