Your own tedious thoughts

#REPOST @jack_kornfield with @get_repost__app What most people experience is an inner waterfall, a cascading stream of thoughts. With mindfulness, you can stop taking your thoughts so seriously. You can come to know that your thoughts make a good servant but not a good master. The first thing you can do is to listen to your thoughts with mindful awareness. You will see the evanescent nature of thoughts, that they are fleeting ideas, all impermanent. And then you can begin to realize that just because you have a thought doesn’t mean you have to believe it—much less act on it—and certainly not get caught up in the whole stream of them. You can release the mind of some of its more dangerous patterns. Observing the mind with mindfulness brings liberation. #mindfulness #Jackkornfield #repostw10
