The power of your thoughts lie in the fact that you think they ARE you…

The contents of our minds are in perpetual flux. Understand that everything comes and goes. Realizing this in the heat of the moment can diffuse fear, anger, grief, and despair. Become the observer of your worries and not a participant in it. You are NOT your worries.
Below is a quote from spiritual master Osho that explains exactly how to go about doing this…
“Become an observer of the currents of thought that flow through your consciousness. Just like someone sitting by the side of a river watching the river flow by, sit by the side of your mind and watch…. Don’t do anything, don’t interfere, don’t stop them in any way. Don’t repress in any way. If there is a thought coming don’t stop it, if it is not coming don’t try to force it to come. You are simply to be an observer….
“In that simple observation you will see and experience that your thoughts and you are separate – because you can see that the one who is watching the thoughts is separate from the the thoughts, different from them…
“And if you become aware that you are not your thoughts, the life of these thoughts will begin to grow weaker, they will begin to become more and more lifeless. The power of your thoughts lies in the fact that you think they are yours.”

Passing on…”When you leave me I will not cry for you. I will run into the strongest wind I can find and welcome you home.”

We are not created or destroyed, we are constantly transferred, shifted and renewed. Everything we are is given to us. Death does not come when a body is too exhausted to live. Death comes, because the brilliance inside us can only be contained for so long. We do not die. We pass on. We pass on the lightning burning through our throats. when you leave me I will not cry for you. I will run into the strongest wind I can find and welcome you home.” -Michael Lee.

In the midst of grief – joy exists…
