How To Unlock The Potential of Witnessing Your Thoughts

In the same way, life gets so busy that so many things pass us by, so it is with our minds. Some days your mind is so busy that your thoughts overwhelm you, while other days it is just quiet.

The mind can propel you to achieve your desired results in life, and if you can train it to reclaim its natural capability to stay in the present and only wander off to your pre-designed destination, then nothing within the human ability would be beyond your reach. Your mind is always racing with thoughts, some, you recognize while others, you don’t, just like your breath. This is because you are continuously choosing when, and how you want to process those thoughts, which your biases, experiences, knowledge, or lack of presence play a significant role.

One thing, for sure is this, thoughts will always be racing through your mind just like the flowing river. What will you do? Resist them? Hold on to them? Or do nothing?

Take a moment of silence and notice the overflow of thoughts pouring into your mind. Do not resist, hold, nor react to them. Can you pinpoint where your thoughts are coming from? Somewhere or nowhere? Can you label them? Do you know why these thoughts are popping up? Are you tempted to stop, or embrace them? Do you define yourself by them? Are you dazed by them?

Notice who or what is watching them pass, like the moving clouds. Can you see that you were the spectator? That you were, in fact, separate from your thoughts? If you choose to resist, hold, or react to any thought, you halt the process. This might be a good or an undesirable thing depending on whether you seek inner peace or chaos. Just as you use the ladder to climb up to get a task done, use the same to go down into your very depths to unravel the answers you seek.

You should apply this process of watching your thoughts as an independent entity to life’s challenges. When faced with inconvenient situations or even difficult people, and you are tempted to be anxious and angry, just step aside, break free from the entanglement, and choose the outcome you wish and then act accordingly. Remember not to react. Just like your thoughts, these too shall pass.
