Mental hamsters into mindfulness
For most of my life I’ve had a hamster on a wheel in my head.
Can you relate?
In my process of self-awareness over the years, I can see how our relationship has evolved, this hamster and me:
First I befriended it. This was good.
Then I gave it permission to take occasional naps. This was better.
Recently I participated in an 8-week mindfulness class. Partway through, I realized something that absolutely astounded me:
The hamster and its wheel are…gone. When did that happen?!?
From fighting to acknowledging to partnering to transforming. Although incredibly helpful along the way, apparently I no longer need that beloved hamster. Transcendence.
What is your mental mayhem? Do you see yourself on your own way through a personal good-better-best? Where would you like to be, in your current process? How can you do one thing today, to move toward that direction?
