Life is busy. I take moments during the day and rest in the truth of what I am. But the most available time is when I go to bed, and don’t go to sleep–aging insomnia—so I hang out simply being.
For a few blessed moments, quiet.
Then the mind starts rambling, babbling, screaming. The thoughts are annoying, repetitive, and without meaning. Obnoxious. At first I was sure the mind was getting louder. It dawned on me it has always been this loud, but as my appreciation and attraction to being grows, the noisy mind becomes more obvious.
The teaching says, “Leave thoughts alone. Don’t touch them.” Supposedly, if one leaves them alone enough, they lose strength. This is not my experience. They natter, natter, natter on. I do my best not to fiddle with them.

One thought on “mind game”
I am so with you, sweet Amrita!!! This is a good reminder for me not to obsessively bemoan the fact that I will be sleep-deprived the next day!!!
Thanks for this!!! Love and sweet dreams to you!!
