Pause for a moment and observe: is there a constant little noise going on in your head? Thoughts, memories, should haves and would haves, planning for the future, fearing the future, songs playing, stress?
I guess most people have an addiction to thinking. I often notice this in myself; I just can't stop thinking, I'm convinced that if I think more I'll have more order in my life. But really, I only get the answers I'm looking for when I stop thinking. When I go for a walk and listen to nature, when I focus on my breath, when I write or do something creative, when I sit in meditation or when I do the dishes and feel the water in my hands, for instance.
When I let the wind blow my thoughts away 🍃
Let the wind blow your thoughts away
Watch how they swirl as dead leaves
across the moors
you are one stalk of grass among millions
Anna tuulen puhaltaa ajatuksesi pois
Katso kuinka ne kieppuvat kuolleina lehtinä
olet yksi ruohonkorsi miljoonien joukossa •
