Well, ‘I’ can be very destructive. I realized this while coming across people who behaved completely opposite of my hidden expectations from them. It made me very upset. It made me think ‘Why me?’ This I is so destructive, that it always wants people to behave as per our convenience. And when something surprisingly opposite happens, it enforces us to feel heartbroken.
Very recently, one such incident took with me.In seconds of time, the hurricane of ‘expectations broken’ type of highly judgmental thoughts filled my mind. I kept noticing the waves of thoughts rising within me. In the meanwhile, I went to take bath. I ate my breakfast then and I listened to music too. After doing these three activities, everything evaporated. The fog of stupid thoughts was gone in the quiet light of ‘pause’
I understood the magnificence and power of a pause.
Taking a pause brings the clarity that – we are not our thoughts! And Life is much more than accumulating the baggage of others!
