Observing Our Thoughts

Just for today,

Be aware of your thoughts.

 

Thoughts will come in — and when they do, ask each one

Who sent this?

For what purpose?

 

What accent is it speaking in?

 

And ask yourself

Who is doing the talking?

And who is doing the listening?

 

Simply notice.

Observe.

Acknowledge.

Then wave with a smile to the thought

As it wafts through

And floats away.

When is it the easiest time in your day to practice this? When is it the most challenging?

Inspired by the Mediation “Just for Today” by Tom Evans.
