a little victory

Recommended Posts

In the past there has been a lot of self-judgemental thoughts.


There still is, but I can take a different path.


"I have a monkey mind and I should meditate every day to fix it."


"I should fix my breathing."


"I should fix my diet."


"I should do the emotional scale."




Before I used to take those thoughts seriously. I would feel stressed out, try to meditate, try to read a book about correct breathing and diet, try to do the scale. A ton of discord.


But now I take a different path. The thought comes. I notice the stress and upset. I notice the judgement "should" and "shouldn't". I notice the belief. I may notice myself googling or reading, trying to fix the problem, trying to do "what I should do", trying to climb the mountain. But I listen to the discord. I notice it is a belief. "I have monkey mind" is a thought. I allow myself to be. I allow the "failure" and "shortcoming" to be. Weirdly enough, awareness returns to here-now.


There must be an effortless way.
