Acknowledge and Surrender
Church Bay, Waiheke Island, New Zealand
We cannot stop our thoughts. However, we can stop identifying with them. We can create a separation between ourselves and our thoughts by realizing that our thoughts are not us. They arise from nothingness and disappear into nothingness. As they arise, we acknowledge them without fear or judgment and surrender them to the Void. We have the courage to look at our deeply buried thoughts as they arise dispassionately, without fear or judgment. Meditation and stillness will slow our thoughts down so we can consciously see them.
Once we acknowledge our thoughts, they lose their power over us. Unacknowledged thoughts and beliefs remain with us, tormenting us throughout our lives. They are the cause of our frustration, our unhappiness,and our failure to live fulfilling lives.
We acknowledge our thoughts and beliefs and release them to the Universe.
