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!
People are different. They have the freedom and choice to act and behave in the way they want at a particular moment.
Don’t freeze your opinions on that basis. Move on, enrich your mind with something inspirational and peaceful. Even a pause will work wonder!
Opinions change with time. Either welcome them or get frozen with the older ones!
Choice is yours. And so is the harmony and self-growth!
People have different experience of same things in life. And the funny thing is : these experiences and opinions about a particular thing keep on changing with time.
So, don’t give so much importance to what is going in others mind and also don’t mind your own mind.Relax and enjoy the crest and troughs of the thoughts, as this too shall pass!
The problem is not in having opinions, but in bookmarking those opinions forever in your heart. The trouble lies in selecting opinions about yourself and others and saving them in your mental folder for life long.
Freezing, locking the opinions about anything burdens you
With time, everything changes.
Our behavior, Choices, Thinking Patterns, Priorities, Daily chores, People, Places, Job, dreams, Goals, Tensions, Joys, Habits, Personality. Everything keeps changing. And so are our opinions and outlook about all of these! Don’t stick. Don’t hold onto opinions tightly. Let them come, embrace them but also also allow them to move out of your life’s inbox so that there is a space for the NEW.
Have Opinions about yourself and others. But don’t freeze them!
