Stop, Look, and Listen
Stop, Look and Listen!
Are you into drama right now? Are you feeling fearful about something? Are you angry at someone?
When we get emotional we get lost from the noise of the crazy mind.
Thinking about your issue only heightens the drama. It’s like pouring gas on a fire. “Thinking” is a losing battle for overcoming emotions.
Stop right now!
Look around you. There is beauty everywhere. Take your time to observe. Whether you are indoors or outside, narrow your vision to a specific object. Whether it is natural or man-made, imagine the history behind it.
Listen! Open up your ears to any and all sounds. Try to hear the faintest sounds. Take your time. Close your eyes and listen.
Heighten your senses right now. Breathe slowly and deeply.
Now, observe that storm cloud of thoughts and emotions that were swirling. Observe it for what it is. It’s just a story that wants to get your attention.
The situation might still exist, but let it be…let it be.
If this has not freed you from the drama, repeat the process.
