This post is part of my spiritual decluttering.
My spiritual journey started to take hold and unfold when I realized that my thoughts were not the truth. They were simply thoughts that I had. I still have the yellow sticky note on my filing cabinet to remind me today.
Early in life, we get attached to our thoughts and opinions, and think that they are who we are. We identify with them, teach them, preach them and defend them. Our thoughts are right. Others’ are therefore wrong. These are creations of our ego-mind and conditioning from the world around us as we grow up.
Becoming aware of our thoughts is the first step. The second, is to detach from them. Developing the state of the observer or witness of our inner being. We find ease in this state of neutrality and non attachment.
It becomes a place to rest in… and to live by.
