No one knows you like you. No one. You own your thoughts. Yet are they YOURS.
Only you can go within to know the truths of YOU.
Whatever method you choose; nature, a quiet space, your car alone, on a jog--it's yours.
It may take practice to free your mind of thought. It personally took me envisioning the flowing path of air throughout my body as I breathe in and out to free my mind of thoughtless chatter. It works.
A minimum of ten visual breaths with a mind free of thought bring tranquility and ground me each morning before I read, write and reflect.
Going within is spiritual for me. I connect with a universal mind, higher power, God.
We are each unique with experiences and perceptions that shape our beliefs. Ultimately they should feel good, serve you and the world in peace, love, respect and acceptance of diversity that sometimes we find difficult to understand.
Diverse means "unlike" yet perhaps we are more alike than we know with our truths that emerge from within.
