You Are Not Your Mind

You Are Not Your Mind

This may seem like a really obvious statement. But, for many, it's not so obvious at all. Many of us think we are our mind - we think we are the same as the thoughts our minds create - but this is not true. Although we can't hide from our thoughts, we can seperate ourselves from them and see them for what they are, just thoughts and not our identity. 

Once you realise that you are not your mind, life becomes decidedly better, and considerably easier.  I’m constantly preaching to people that they are not their mind. However, often it just doesn’t really sink in.  It’s something you just don’t really get until you get it as a clear insight – when you have one of those AH-HUH moments!

I hope this more visual representation from Zen Pencils may help you to really understand that you are not your mind, and that you can take charge of your mind.  In this wonderfully inspiring cartoon Gavin (the cartoon artist) has taken words from Chris Hardwick stand-up comedian, podcaster, television host, actor and geek icon. The quote is taken from Hardwick’s book The Nerdist Way: How to Reach The Next Level (in Real Life). In this book, Hardwick shares how he gained control of his own mind.
