The mind is not our enemy. It is a useful tool. However, identification with thought creates frustration and unhappiness.
We can interrupt our identification with thought by bringing awareness (i.e., attention without judgment) to our thoughts and emotions. We are not our thoughts. Thoughts arise and we observe them. We will discover that 99% of our thoughts do not serve us. They consist of worry, guilt, fear, frustration, hope, desire, etc.
Let's bring awareness to our thoughts.
