In the last post we looked at noticing how we were feeling and what the feeling looked like. The colour, shape, texture. I'm wondering what, if any, thoughts you noticed. Maybe they went along the lines of "I'm feeling over this; I wish I felt different", or, when feeling happy - "it would be great to feel like this more."
Our mind keeps up a constant commentary, like having the radio on in the background. It seeks to interpret, understand, and scan for threats to keep us safe. When we stop and bring our awareness to it, it can be very interesting to hear. If you tune in and notice, what is your mind saying - about you, and about the people around you, when you are not listening?
