I asked myself, “What is True?”
And this is what I wrote:
Various ideas come and go.
Many of which lead to plans and decisions.
Some of which I do.
Not all of which are necessary or helpful.
I get lost in many of the ideas.
I lose myself.
Instead I believe I am the hero of my ideas and feelings,
The hero of my journey through life.
I spend most of my time lost in this way,
Almost all of it in fact.
What can I do about it?
I can choose to pause a thought.
Yes, I may well return to it,
But in that moment I can also return to noticing how it is not to be lost in thought.
Which usually is a more peaceful and enjoyable state than being in the story.
