The mind is an overly complex and intricate being. It plays many tricks on us. There are times when we think that what we know is the only truth there is, or when things do not always go our way we can get angry or frustrated.
How often do we get locked into thinking in a fixed manner? If we start to question our thoughts, we can identify that they are predominately based on assumptions and not …facts!
By understanding our thoughts, we can start to understand ourselves and our situations. Could it be negative thoughts or false beliefs that are getting in the way?
One thing that we need to consider is that there are other possibilities.
If we start to look at alternative choices or substitute meanings it will cut through these unhelpful thought patterns and open us up to a plethora of options.
When our mind is stuck in the mode where it thinks our truth is the only truth there is, we need to realise that it's our individuality at work here. Our own opinion of ourselves our ego does not want to hear about anyone else.
We don't need to agree to those points of view, we just need to know that they exist.
When locked in a way of thinking we block ourselves off from alternative outcomes and feel stuck. Asking questions like what if there was another way to look at something, what if there is a different answer, what if there is a different reason can be liberating, what evidence do I have that this is true, can be liberating and be the start of living a stress-free life.
