The day you decide that you are more interested in being aware of your thoughts than you are in the thoughts themselves – that is the day you will find your way out.” -Michael Singer
Are you paying attention to your own thoughts and feelings? Arabs say the nature of rain is the same, but it makes thorns grow in the marshes and flowers in the gardens. Is your mind a soil for flowers or thorns?
Realize how your predominant thoughts had taken over the course of your life. Where is your focus right now? The key is to not give any unwanted thing much attention. Awareness involves noticing and acknowledging that to which you are inwardly connected. Become a silent witness, release unproductive thoughts and enjoy the present moment. Show your mind who’s the boss.
