Have you ever seen a TV show or a movie (or in real life!) where one person tells the other person, “Don’t say another word.” Then the other person opens their mouth to say something and the first person puts up their finger and says, “Eh, not one word.” You get the scene.
Ever try that with your thinking mind? I must admit it has come down to that for me, on occasion. And all this unnoticed, unquestioned, unnecessary thought fills our frontal lobes incessantly. This keeps us stuck or corralled in our lives, and we begin to feel squeezed.
