3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
I am now well on the way to living by intuition rather than thought. This is particularly useful where I make mistakes or encounter adversity. Whereas in the past I would keep continually running such incidents through my head in a futile attempt to "correct" them, now I simply listen to my intuition.
The relief is absolutely wonderful! It's so much quieter inside my head - I now understand what the phrase "a quiet mind" really means. It feels truly blissful! For much of my life, I've had a strange secret desire - to be put to sleep. I now understand why this was - to turn off all that thought. My first experience of a general anaesthetic when I was five years old impacted me so intently because my awareness stopped being bombarded with input - I spent a lot of the subsequent time just wanting to go back there!
Now at last, I can at will, by concentrating, turn off my thought myself, no anaesthetics required! It's the end of internal civil war - peace at last, peace blissful peace! I'm so profoundly grateful!
