When asked to tune into what is going on in the mind, most people listen for a minute or two and then let their thoughts take over.
In my work I often have people spend time becoming acquainted with what is going on in their mind. Most have difficulty because the mind can hardly sit still especially without practice.
What I have noticed in my own exploration is my thoughts are endless. Research states that people have approximately 50,000 to 60,000 thoughts per day. You can do your own research.
Try sitting down for 15 minutes and noting down each time you have a thought. You will be surprised at how much is going on upstairs.
These thoughts represent a lifetime of programming. About 80-90% of the thoughts we have today are the same thoughts we have had over and over again. Imagine a powerful computer running the same script repeatedly. This is the nature of your mind – it keeps repeating itself.
Would this inner script shape your experience of life?
