#RealHappiness Day 18

Hijacked.  Thoughts are clouds.  Some are storm clouds.  Visitors. You don’t have to invite them in.  Vividly descriptive phrases in today’s lesson.  When I was listening to the section on being highjacked, I  recalled how easily I can get distracted and go off on a tangent when I’m doing a mundane task.  Sometimes this happens when I meditate as well.

I like the imagery of thoughts as clouds.  Clouds pass by.  You can look at them.  ‘Explore with gentle curiosity’ as Sharon says.  While some clouds can be heavy storm clouds, I think I’m going to work on picturing thoughts as clouds as I meditate and see if that helps me let them go by versus hanging on to them.  Which imagery in today’s lesson resonated with you?
