WE’RE ALWAYS THINKING
Whether we’re aware of it or not, we’re always thinking. Our heads are stuffed with a never-ending blather of thoughts, fears, impressions, observations, comparisons, and judgments. The blather keeps us on autopilot, thinking and doing with a limited awareness of what we’re thinking and doing.
Living on auto-pilot creates automatic patterns of unhealthy beliefs and behaviors that are driven by reactive emotions and unexamined experiences. These patterns, when unattended, grow stronger and deeper over time, exacerbating our feelings of separateness, loneliness, and inertia in an ever-devolving spiral of helplessness, hopelessness, anger, and grief.
