Taking charge of our minds

lakemountainsgreenWhen you stop and become aware of where your attention has been, usually you discover that it has been on worries, negative stuff that has you tensed up.

So much of the time we are on automatic pilot – our minds are full of thoughts but we are not aware of these.

We are, generally, not aware of the thoughts that are constantly running through our minds and so we are not choosing them.  Our mind is generally running us.

We have the power to train our minds, to choose the thoughts we allow into our minds and to choose where we will put our attention.

We have the power to quieten the mind, to stop the constant barrage of thoughts, to experience stillness.  Wonderful.
