You may have a weather app on your smartphone allowing you to watch live radar screens showing storm movements.
When you’re struggling with mental chatter, and you want to quiet it down, think of a weather radar screen.
Imagine a storm of red, yellow, and green weather cells floating by over your head. These active formations are the mind’s ever-changing mental activity.
These bundles of thoughts are not helpful or constructive. In most cases, they are simply like storm cells, building up from an unknowing trust in their fictitious stories.
When you stop and look at these storm cells for what they are, mindless mental chatter, you realize how much time you waste, and how much unnecessary suffering you have experienced.
This moment gives you a piece of clarity, away from the mind’s constant activity. Enjoy this time and remember to visit it, again and again, when those storm clouds come floating by.
