Spaceous Thoughts

The longer you practice mindful meditation the more you will notice thoughts and Self getting further and further apart.  In the beginning you may have felt that you were your thoughts - that you and your thoughts were one and the same.

But now you know that you (the Self) are separate from the thoughts that spontaneously arise at any given moment.  Thoughts come and go and seem as if they have a mind of their own.  That's because they are not of your mind.  They are manifested out of thin air - the mind-field of the cosmos.

When you learn to see thoughts as separate entities, the distance between you and unwanted thoughts will grow further and further apart.  There will come a time when those spontaneous, and sometimes disturbing, thoughts are realized as nothing more than bits and sparks of energy flying in and out of your own mind-field.

Practice mindful meditation often.  It's really quite simple. Just sit and witness thoughts without judgment and allow the space to open.
