We can eliminate this constant agitation from our mind through detachment. Emotional detachment and dis-identification. What exactly is dis-identification? Not identifying with that voice in my head, no longer believing that I am that “person”, that voice, I am much more than that. That voice is a stack of past experiences, fears, preconceptions, it is like a computer impregnated with all sorts of elements to which it was exposed, but without making the difference between reality and the virtual, between the real and the fake, between useful and useless. The mind is just a function that has been taking up too much space in our existence. We cannot stop it, perhaps if we were to meditate for years somewhere in a cave, though we can put it “in its place”, we can take its power and influence.
You don’t have to read 100 books or to know any secret techniques, constantly try out and practice detachment, observing from another vantage point of thoughts, it will slowly become natural.
When you get out of that mental chaos, you start to really be in the present!
This technique is also used in Mindfulness. A meditation through which we practice that state of being the observer of one’s own thoughts.
A sense of humor helps us take away the pressure, to relax that mental strain in which we have gotten used to be. Have you ever noticed that when we have negative thoughts, the more we try to get rid of them, the more power they have. But have you tried laughing at them? Undermining their authority? This really is a technique about which spiritual masters speak about, a sense of humor. It tremendously helps in changing the paradigms to which our mind is so accustomed. It will initially help with relaxing, to then be able to entirely detach from the mental films.
If we were to not take our thoughts so seriously, we would enjoy life happening now! In the present moment!
I wrote an article a few days ago about this topic.
In my journey of self-discovery, I got acquainted with many spiritual ideologies, philosophies and practices. Most talk about the fact that we attract what we think. But fortunately, things are not quite so. Why fortunately? Well in the way our minds work now, with the abundance of uncontrollable negative thoughts we have, would we want to attract something like that? Fortunately however, this attraction system is slightly more complex than that. We do not attract what we think, we attract what we are, what is behind those surfacing thoughts, we attract what we really believe about ourselves and about reality. Article:
