Instead, they are thoughts about wanting the present moment to be subtly different. For example, two pieces of news struck today–clients of ours thought they could purchase a home, but now realize it might well be out of reach at this time. And my physical therapist wants my shoulder to be diagnosed by a surgeon.
Of course the mind wanted to get busy. There was some resistance to what is, and that resistance caused suffering–mild perhaps, but suffering nonetheless.
Suffering is often a reminder that thoughts are out of whack, so I watched them arise and pass for a while, then questioned them. (Is this true? Is this really true?) Eventually, they dissolved, as did the resistance to what is.
