Do you ever wish that you could just take a vacation from your mind?
Do you wish that you had an “on-off” switch on the side of your head that you could turn off your worry about the future, your regrets of the past, the things you keep telling yourself over and over that you need to work on or change?
Our mind, the Queen of Chaos, can literally drive us crazy. We live in a culture that fosters an overactive mind, that creates worry, frustration, dissatisfaction, sleeplessness, and a feeling that no matter what life we have, something (or many things!) about our life needs to be different. It is as though our minds create a war inside of us, and we think that the way to peace is through continuing to examine what we need to change, how we need to improve, or we fixate on changing or improving someone else, like our spouse or our kids!
The bottom line is this: We will never feel the content, joy, love and satisfaction that we want to feel in our lives by remaining at war with ourselves.
