What is the feeling when you’re driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? - it’s the too-huge world vaulting us, and it’s good-by. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.
When we remember our former selves, there
is always that little figure with its long shadow
stopping like an uncertain belated visitor
on a lighted threshold at the far end of some
impeccably narrowing corridor.
Just start with your phone timer (just try 5 or 10 minutes first), a pillow for your back, and some deep breaths into your belly!
Let the thoughts come in but don’t send them away, just observe and let them come and go. You can label them if you’d like, or if you start feeling anxious (“anxious thought,” “depressed thought,” “worry”). Just remember your thoughts aren’t YOU! They’re just clouds coming in and out.
It’s maddening at first. But you’ll grow in ways you won’t even believe.
