Choosing What To Think II
Today is day two of my considered effort to choose what to think about. So far, it is proving very difficult to do effectively, but that’s what I expected. I promise I am trying really hard though, still. One thing I noticed today is the disconnect between my feelings and the thoughts that (I think) cause them. If I begin thinking about something painful, even if I consciously shift to another, completely wholesome thought, the feeling still persists in my body - it sits in my stomach, I feel the unease in my fingertips, the clouds and fog in front of my eyes and in my mind.
Maybe with practise, I can achieve authority over that part of my psyche too?
