The problem of our minds

There’s a thing about « A problem », it only exists when we think about it and it will take as much space as we choose to give it.

Right now, right here if we take a deep breath and let go of our thoughts about the problem then for a few seconds it’s gone.

Right here right now there’s no problem, there is only peace.

Our mind will name it « problem »while in truth it’s just an uncomfortable situation. In time it will heal itself, always.

And then it’s up to us to choose to focus on another « problem » or not.

We can change our thoughts

Byron Bay Meditation Retreats

Sunset in Byron Bay.

 

What if with a change of thought we could change our emotions.
What if right now, we consciously decided to drop our worry and choose another thought to replace it with.
Just here on a deep out breath we let go of our pain, and just then on a deep in breath we pick a thought that will make us smile.And let’s do this for a few minutes, in and out.
Letting go of thinking that we don’t like, choosing our own thoughts instead.
In and out.
There we are.
We are already feeling better.
And there, right here, between the two breaths, between the two thoughts: nothingness.
The pure beauty of silence.
Listen.

Our mind is full

Our mind is full of thoughts.
Thoughts are an accumulation of sentences.
Sentences are made of words.
Words are a mix of letters.
Letters are just a drawing on a piece of paper.
Our thoughts are random drawings in our heads.
We gave them meaning and power.
But by themselves they aren’t that much.
Little letters floating around, dancing in our heads.
They go here and there.
Calling us for attention.
For us to listen.
To give them life.
They come and go.
And we watch them all day long.
The only story of our life.

I’m happy NOW

Happiness is a feeling, an experience in the Now.

It isn’t something that we’ll get one day when we reach a certain condition in our life (job, relationship), or when we finally get our dream objects (car, house).

Happiness isn’t dependent upon outside circumstances even though our mind is trying to tell us that it is.

Happiness is just an emotion.

It is always there, in the moment, in the Now for us to tap into.

When our mind is quiet, when all thinking stops, when desires drop, when we don’t need to do anything or get anywhere,

Right Now, right Here Happiness is waiting.
