Less mind is more… it’s way stronger! Obviously, under a new light, that’s where ‘Mindless’ comes from. Mind you, it took serious digging earlier to arrive at this conclusion.
Basically, I have been thinking, thinking and overthinking my entire life in a Level 1 roundabout way 🤦🏻♂️. As a result, I got exhausted and didn’t get too far. Instead, I equipped myself with way too much information that was needed for the job, and I moved sideways and backwards in my reality. I didn’t know of the good, smooth new Level 2 backwarⱭ flowing way until recently, having now made a few deeper discoveries.
I found another type of ‘forward way’ and it was well-hidden in a ‘subtle, backward move’.
So after reaching a critical point of frustrating pressure built up over many years, something finally gave way in my life.
This is it, I’m done thinking along these lines! These thoughts of mine now need to slow right down for once.
Something inside me said…
I have been doing it all wrong this whole, godforsaken time. Now, let’s work out how to prune these ideas back somehow.
However, Reality laughed, scoffed, and blatantly replied…
Yeah, good luck with that one, mate! Try giving it your best shot! 😆
Now for the Extra Challenge
So like a nuclear reactor about to go into meltdown, as seen in the movies, I knew I had to pull out the big guns and tackle this problem in order to minimise the fallout or make greater sense of it. Because whenever I try to think less, you can always guarantee… I will only think more!
By conditioning, trait or nature, as these annoying thoughts popped up in my world, I would use others to push them down — redirecting my attention instead. For instance, I would feed my brain its usual psychological dope in repetitive hits of positive thinking in exchange for a deflection from the drama. Therefore, I escaped like the rest of the world, which I shouldn’t have followed because the Herd manage this paradigm far better than myself.
Whenever heavier thinking was in front, I would always run away. I’d routinely get high off my thoughts or someone else’s to escape an imposition.
And the Backlash?
But then if I did that too much, my mind would always return, yelling and demanding for more (the freaky more-ish mindset). It was sooo needy and greedy in its up and down uncontrollable ways. Soon, I would end up wanting MORE, MORE and MORE artificial space in any way shape or form. And no matter what the situation was!
Like with real dope, there was NEVER any chance of freedom in my world.
So what better way to kick off this new discipline than to cut back in a backward move (one of a few). And really, there have been no regrets since entering Level 2.
Finally – A Fresh & Healthy Mindless Breath
My strength today comes from not abusing my mental medicine as much as I had my entire life by not converting my energy into unnecessary space-like sensations. Which admittedly, works well for most. But definitely not for me. Instead, I would save it for more important things.
Since I now truly know what it means to carry a default/typical mind around (noise, noise, noise), as significant pressures or the weight inside my thinking that causes discomfort and disrupts life 🤯, then I absolutely had to get my act together if I were to have any real chance at Long Term Lessening.
If I were to relinquish this Short Term Escaping Habit that plagued my life for so long, then I had to be on my emptiest ball!
