Today’s forgiving journal is about making friends with my mind.
I am stuck in my head today. I have a decision to make, and so my mind wants to take over.
My spiritual teacher John-Roger has said that if he could ask for one thing, it would be for his mind to leave him alone.
What I am aware of right now is that: I have an opportunity to LOVE my mind, to truly just love it as it is. I keep “thinking” how can I get above my mind …. and that keeps me in my mind.
I’ve tried many techniques, such as running, meditation, and breathing. They work for a while, and then my mind furrows with a thought, and there you go – off running again!
So now I just want to add something super simple: love my mind exactly as it is – and what comes in is gratitude.
Time for forgiving:
1 – Self-forgiveness: I forgive myself for judging my mind as my enemy. I forgive myself for judging myself as feeling scared of my mind. I forgive myself for not loving me exactly as I am, that somehow I’ll forget to do. (Do I need to do?)
2 – Letting go: I let go of this mush around my mind into a golden bowl of Light and see myself held and protected by my spiritual teachers and my own love.
3 – Gratitude: I am so grateful for my mind exactly as it is. I really love that my mind can help me look for the good. I am blessed to have such an active mind – thank you mind!
Do you ever ask yourself, “What would I do if I didn’t think I needed to do x?” I am asking myself that right now, and what I hear is, “Be grateful. Know that you are blessed. Love will give you all the answers that you need.”
I love you. Thank you. It’s really helpful to write all this down.
