Living Life Once Removed

thought

Living submersed in thought unawares, becomes a barrier between me and a direct connection with my life experience. It is a veil between me and the people, places and things in my life. It is what I call “living life once removed.” It is living life inauthentically, or through the collective beliefs and learned behaviors of the thinking mind. Even when those learned behaviors no longer benefit me,or feel good.

When you realize that you are the eyewitness to your stories, as opposed to living submersed in them, you are Awake.

The thoughts themselves are not detrimental. In fact, the actual thoughts are more like floating butterflies, or clouds passing across the sky, or leaves drifting down a river. The detriment of thought lies in believing it. When you realize that you are the eyewitness to your stories, as opposed to living submersed in them, you are Awake. Welcome home.
