A Great Storyteller

Standard

Our mind is a great storyteller.
so convincing
that the stories appear real,
utterly believable,
totally indisputably real.
We wouldn’t accept such outlandish tales
from any other source
but because it is so close
we don’t question the crazy stories
the mind tells us.
Enter mindfulness practice.
Start to notice that you’re thinking.
Call the mind out on its bluffing.
Discover reality.
If you practice earnestly
and for a solid period of time,
you can let the mind entertain you,
but it can no longer enslave you.
What would life be like,
free from the neurotic tall tales
the mind invents?
