Darling friend…. I needed this … Thank you….I’m reading the incredible Adyashanti’s Falling Into Grace…. I recommend it heartily…
I’ve put it on my list, thanks!
This post is itself a lovely meditation.
I love it, too.
One of my coping skills in times of tragedy is reading.
I read somewhere that ‘Hell’ is the terrible things we have done in our lives that we revisit over and over in our minds and this revisiting and replaying is the work of the devil or some sort of demon. Consequently, when I get trapped in a continuous loop of bad thoughts I make a conscious effort to dismiss them. If it was an event I can not change I acknowledge it and move on and if I can’t seem to move on I try to make myself see the pity party I am throwing to no avail and move on from there. Obviously it is easier to do some times than other times but it does help.
This cloud analogy is such a pleasant one. Thank you for sharing it.
This is a great quote to remember and it helps put things in perspective when you’re feeling overwhelmed. Thoughts are not reality…putting things into action is where it’s at.
what works for me sometimes ? I spend time in God’s Word and in praying EVERY day….. 😀
Great inspirational post for me today and now I’m curious about Adyashanti’s Falling Into Grace. I’ll have to put it on my list as well.
It’s definitely important to make a reality check. Once you realize that you are also in control of your thoughts, it’s easier to think lightly of whatever situation you’re in. Being positive is important.
I picture my thoughts as a train speeding past me as I stand on the platform. I know I always have the choice to jump aboard or continue to watch them leave me as quickly as they came.
A simple but very meaningful post. Great to keep in mind when things are not going our way. “Thoughts are not reality”. Thanks for sharing. Beautiful!
I love this! Thoughts are not permanent. I will remember this, especially when I’m feeling down.
