When we want to feel who we are it is not necessary to stop our thinking, but to bring a halt to our reaction to our thinking and to stop interpreting the thoughts that arise inside ourselves.
We no longer give our thoughts a life of their own and return to the openness of a more silent state of being instead.
For me this is similar to what I feel when I say: “Thy will be done”.
When I ask joy what she wants, my movements slow down.
I stop being hurried by thoughts about what I need to do.
I begin to enjoy a slow flow and find time to be touched by whatever happens.
When I ask joy what she wants, I know which colors to wear and how I can see beauty all around me.
When I ask joy what she wants.
