Taming the Runaway Mind
I have a mind that tends to run away with me. Not in a romantic way like taking a beautiful drive down the coast, but in a way where it spins out of control and suddenly I’m stuck in a skipping record of worry, fear, anger, or something worse.
In mindfulness parlance this is a “hell realm.” It’s a place I know all too well. Maybe you do, too.
The antidotes are remembering it’s just a runaway mind (the most usual thing in the world), taking responsibility for any harm done (ug – the most uncomfortable thing in the world), and continuing to diligently train the mind (not the easiest thing in the world).
Fun times. See you soon.
