I've been directing some of my coaching clients to a really good interview with Michael Singer, who is the author of the above quote from The Untethered Soul and also the author of The Surrender Experiment. He speaks in part about noticing our negative thoughts and allowing them to drift by, instead of ruminating on them, as the brain likes to do, which is such a waste of both time and energy.
Our thoughts are not us, they are just thoughts. A hard concept to grasp but it’s true!
When we boil it all down, negative thoughts and worrying are simply stories that we tell ourselves.
I love what LOUISE HAY (author of You Can Heal Your Life) has to say about this as well:
"The thoughts we choose to think are the tools we use to paint the canvas of our lives."
If you'd like to listen to an interview with Michael Singer while you drive, walk or fold laundry etc, you can enjoy it HERE
Also 52 of Michael Singer's quotes and his interviews with Oprah are HERE.
And lastly, I highly recommend The Untethered Soul Guided Journal, which is very quick, readable and full of great spiritual support and advice.
The quote below isn't Michael Singer's but from the Course in Miracles. Also a very good one.
A special thank you to Lines of Beauty readers who send me lots of good things to post.
Sending love & hope out into the world,
