Your thinking mind is best understood as an instrument, a tool. Yours to be used for a specific task and when the task is completed, laid down. We do that by entering the space of ‘no thought’ as often as possible.
We haven’t been taught how to do this. So for most of us, most of our thinking is either repetitive and useless, dysfunctional and anxious, or judgmental and negative.
Step Away From Thought
Step back from your thoughts and observe them and you’ll see this is true of you too. I can say that because it’s not personal. It’s universal, a combination of biological brain evolution and social conditioning.
Unfortunately, all this compulsive thinking represents a serious leakage of creative energy.
Try this Exercise to enter the Space of No Thought:
Repeat the cycle three times.
Regular access to that creative space between the words, between the thoughts, will increase your creative intelligence a hundredfold.
