Negative thinking clouds the mind, disconnecting us from the light within.
The cloudy thoughts remind us of several associations — scary skeletons, caricatures of the future, a jar full of limiting beliefs. When we observe negative thoughts like passing clouds in the sky, we spot shapes that distort the reality of sunny skies.
Though cloudy thoughts remind us of dreary associations, continue to observe — rather than overthink — these negative thoughts. The observer within detaches from identification to negative thinking!
In truth, we are pure awareness! Awareness shines a light on the powerlessness of negative thoughts. It is the sun that peaks through the clouds — the light of the observer within.
