Look Within

“At the end of the day, I can end up just totally wacky, because I’ve made mountains out of molehills. With meditation, I can keep them as molehills.”– Ringo Starr

Often when things go wrong in our lives our internal focus or self-talk is saying, “Why me? Why do I have to go through all this? Why is God mean to me? What have I done wrong?”

If you’ve experienced this, your focus was internal in your head and you were conscious of the fact that you were thinking, but you were not able to overcome that thought which gripped you so tightly.

Once you stay in this negative thought for a period of time, it becomes your mood.

Your autopilot mode kicks in. Let me explain to you the autopilot mode by using the example of driving.

When you start learning how to drive, you are consciously present. You look out the front window and use the rearview mirror. You twist and look behind you when reversing. You turn and look sideways when passing another driver. In other words, you take all the necessary precautions.

Fast forward a few weeks, or years, and you are now so used to driving that you don’t have to think about it. Instead, you respond in a pre-programmed way. Sometimes you reach your place of work without even remembering which road you took. You were in autopilot

In the same way, we sometimes memorize our negative emotions so well that we respond in a pre-programmed way.You might have heard people say things like, “This is the way I am,” or “This is the story of my life,” or “I am in a mood.”

If you asked them what happened that caused them to feel the way they do, they will answer by saying that this thing happened seven days ago or that thing happened to me six months ago.

Well, that person is still living in that same negative state of mind as they were at the time of that past event.

Our minds loves habits. Our positive or negative thought patterns become habits.Choosing to shift our internal thinking through meditation is vital to choosing a happy life.
