There’s a lot of woo-woo talk out in the world, and sometimes it makes me uncomfortable. “Think this”, “believe that”, “hold a sunflower in your left hand and a dahlia in your right while doing tree pose for 30.72 seconds and the world will be yours”.
I made that last one up. Could you tell?
I do believe in the power of noticing what my thoughts are doing inside my head. Sometimes they are spinning around, doing the hamster on a wheel thing. Sometimes, more rarely, they are focused, still, clear.
What I do know is that what I look for is what I see. When I look for kindness, I see kindness. When I look for beauty, I see beauty. When I see judgement, I realize that is where my focus is – even if I wasn’t aware of it. And boy! It sure does jump up and hit me in the face. (Judgement is a big theme for me right now. Sigh.) Paying attention to what I’m “seeing”, can tell me a lot about what I am thinking. Paying attention to my thinking can affect how I see the world. And how I see myself.
This short video fits right in with this. What are you looking for? What do you see? I’m interested to know.
