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?
