Being Happy Anyway
You know me, I’m always trying to help you lead a happier, more conscious life and I’ve come across an author that I think you’ll like – Michael Singer. I’ve just finished one of his books titled The Untethered Soul and I liked it so much that I’m now reading it for a second time. It feels like an important book for me.
The Constant Chatter in our Minds
Essentially, the book is about becoming more aware of the constant chatter that goes on in our minds and how that chatter keeps us trapped in endless circles of mental thinking and prevents us from being peaceful and at ease deep inside.
Our Thoughts are Often Not Helpful
The First Step in Modulating Your MInd
The first step, of course, is to notice what our “inner roommate” is saying and how this part of us has an opinion on everything. Once we begin to notice the constant conversation, you might be tempted to try and stop the chatter, but as you’ve probably experienced, this doesn’t work.
What does work is to simply let the thoughts continue, but not give them any credence. Hear them, but don’t get into them, don’t analyse them or believe them. Understand that thoughts are just what the mind produces and our job is to get under them and simply be peaceful anyway.
