Blessed2 Posted March 1 Share Posted March 1 "I found an easy way to let go believing thoughts." "It might be quite similar to the "going prior"-thing." Just imagine whatever you're thinking or stories/narratives you tell yourself as text inside quotation marks (""). And notice they're just lines of text, like something you would read some character say in a novel or something. You can also do it with a pen or paper or with your phone. "It might also be helpful to write in cursive. Maybe that makes it seem even more like just some nonsensical blabbering." For example... "I've been feeling like shit for a couple of days already." Remain mindful and really notice the quotation marks. Notice it is in fact just a narrative, a thought story. And you're the one reading / percieving it, not "in" the story. One line at a time. Take pause and midnfully pay attention to each quote. "I can't feel better. There is some stagnant emotion or energy in my stomach." "I should meditate more." "I'm too lazy." "If I eat unhealthy food, I will become fat." These are all self-referential thoughts. But you can also do it for any thought or belief you catch. "Enlightened people don't eat unhealthy food." "It's still cold and dark and summer is so far away." "It is the year 2023." "The capitalist system is ruining our enviroment." "Heavy metals poison your brain and makes you depressed." "We are separate individual people living in a world." Quote Mention Everyone is waiting for eternity but the Shaman asks: "how about today?"
