  1. To get those thoughts quiet is so not easy and takes much discipline but once achieved one truly can hear the Voice of Pristine Truth. Thank you, Val, for this post! ❤

  2. Val, love this but surely only death brings our thoughts to an end! 😟

    What I’m hearing from you, all the time I’m bound to say, is the wise advice to let go of the need for our mind to run our lives every minute of the day! And I so wish I could find a secure way of meditating!

    • Our thoughts are not our life Paul. We only think they are 😉 Beyond our thinking is the awareness of it all. By observing our thinking mind and becoming detached from it, we open to so much more … And the interconnectedness of us all. 💛


  3. Neuroscientists say we have on average 60,000 thoughts that cross our consciousness daily. That is an average of one a second during waking time. Common sense tells us it is impossible to grasp everyone.

    Why do we ever grasp a negative one?

    Our mindfulness practice helps quiet us down, building our focus to let go and explore the inner world.
