The problem is that we think that we are our thoughts.
When you refer to "yourself," it is likely that you use your thoughts to define you.
Thoughts, however, are more closely akin to the 5 senses.
Thought is simply another sense like seeing, hearing and smelling.
Thought is intended to serve us, but somewhere along the way, it became the false master.
If you suddenly stopped thinking, would you cease to exist?
Or, would you discover yourself to be the awareness beyond the thinking....
What kind of freedom would this discovery bring?
In grace & gratitude,
