Thoughts, dirt, semi-precious stones and gems

I have found that only shackle in adult life has been my capacity to think–actually overthink–things tot he point of frustration and confusion. It’s perfectly acceptable to have any manner of thought and quite normal to have bizarre, nonsensical and illogical thoughts. The problem is in knowing when to tell yourself that they’re just thoughts and can be discarded like business reply mail.


Thinking is an automatic process. Introspection, on the other hand, is deliberative and mindful. The mind is a field with precious stones. Most of what you find is just dirt and rocks, but sifted properly, can bring peace and great joy in the present.
