Penny For Your Thoughts

edited November 20 in Mindfulness

Throughout the day...are you thoughtful ( is there often awareness of the present moment AKA Mindful) ? Or thoughtless (more often than not the mind gets carried away by thoughts AKA Mind Full)?

There's no time like the present moment to be given a present ...(moment)

Thank You for your patience and participation (...the cheque's in the post ;) )

    Thoughtless predominantly....particularly when with others. That's why it's nice to be alone =) =)

    (I think I may borrow that.... Lovely sentiment. It is apparently, Biblical in origin though. Not 'Buddhist'. But as with many things benevolently religious, sometimes, it really doesn't make any difference "who" said it....)

    My problem with my thoughts isn't that they are unpleasant or difficult. It's that I like being in there, I have since I was young. I was a notorious daydreamer and lover of fantasy worlds. Understanding the benefit of letting go of thinking isn't always so obvious when thinking has a generally positive effect in life and mind.

    Thoughts can be quite charming ...But I guess if one is aware/mindful that they are just "thoughts", then one can nip em in the bud should they start to get out of hand...

    You can have them for Nothing. Don't need them anyways ... ;)
