Find Happiness 60: Don’t Worry About Your Mind
- Feel you’re going crazy?
- Worried about your mind’s quirks?
- Think you’re not as smart as your peers?
All these are attitudes which probably everyone has at one time or another. First and foremost:
You are not alone and there is nothing wrong with you.
I went through some of the above mindsets myself; I came to the point where I decided I had to straighten my head out else waste the rest of my life feeling mixed-up and inferior.
I studied myriad books, underwent self-help courses and spoke with people who clearly understood the human mind. I successfully found a solution, and now offer it to you, thus enabling you to leap over the searching stage in a single bound.
What you need to do (and what I did) is:
1. Realize that the worries mentioned above are thoughts, that they come from your brain and that you are the quiet presence that is aware of them.
Just watch them without interfering with them. That means making no effort to engage with them.
It’s like being on the pavement of an empty street, watching a car pass by.
Or it’s like looking at an empty sky waiting for a bird to fly past
Or like waiting in the silence of the night, waiting for the sound of the wind.
2. When the worry is over, be still and wait for the next one.
3. The general idea is that you, the observer, continue to be there as worries come and go. And it doesn’t matter to you when they come, when they go, whether they come or not or what they are about. You are always there regardless, quietly watching.
So when worries about your state of mind hit, just let them do their thing. They will stick around for a while, then dissolve. But you, the silent spectator, will still be there.
Nothing will go wrong if you let those worries blow by. They are just opinions and not necessarily true. There is no need for any action on your part as a result of those thoughts.
