it hadn't occurred to me to be upset.
In that moment I saw that I was perfectly content and I had no concern whatsoever that this storm would 'never finish' or that 'the sun will never come out again'.
It just didn't cross my mind. (or if it had, I had dismissed it)
When I talk about the nature of our internal weather, our emotions and our thinking, people often tell me we have habitual thoughts that hold us back and that it's really hard to change.
My answer is, well, the last time you thought about killing someone, did you actually do it?
The fact is, we think. We are thinking our way through life. And the fact is we are also ignoring some of our thinking all the time.
We are living in an internal weather system of thought.
Isn't it interesting that we worry that thought storms will never pass?
