Check out this article posted by my friend Lynilu on Facebook today. We've been told that our thoughts (and most certainly our words) affect our lives and world, but here's actual proof of it.
I don't know about you, but I've never been good about being aware of my thoughts. My thoughts are like breaths - they are automatic and unexamined. But perhaps that's not for the best.
Meditation teaches its practitioners to become aware of breathing. Perhaps meditation can also help with awareness of thinking.
I have been advised to stop worrying. How can I stop worrying if I remain unaware of my thoughts? I guess I'm going to have to do something.
