Understanding How Thought Can Create Suffering -Elizabeth Lykins

Each human being has a unique perception of reality, that colors everything about their view of the world around them. The brain is constantly active, connecting events, memories, and associations, past and present, with patterns that suggest the possibility of similar future events. When we latch onto any random thought and focus on it, the brain then creates its own perception of the meaning of these thoughts, with the physical body responding “as if” the imaginings are real. The problem with this is that we begin to think that our thoughts and feelings are coming from events outside of us, and not from our own thoughts at that moment. Besides creating significant personal emotional suffering and stress, this habitual and toxic process, also creates both physical and mental illness. The realization that human intelligence is only a tool for functioning in the physical world, can allow each of us to fall out of habitual, toxic thinking and tap into our innate wisdom; the formless self behind the physical form that has access to universal thought and insight. That realization changes everything and connects us to who we really are!
