The other day I was in a self deprecating mood. I spilled coffee, and said to myself, "You clumsy oaf". Then I remembered that "myself" is just a label anyway. There is no need to waste time being angry at myself.
The power of transformation has changed my choice of mind-words, i.e. I, me, my, mind; less judgemental of self and others from negative emotions; awareness of beauty in new of ways i.e. a cup, frame from window of my eyes, the face of the person I'm talking to, sitting quietly and embraced by moments of clarity; given me hope to live a meaningful life.
Learning more about the mind has helped me to leverage them when I feel my anxieties creeping up. It's been an interesting journey and it really has helped me to make some positive transformations. I no longer live in constant fear of my mind overpowering me.
