Are You Feeling Down?

We cannot be 100% motivated all the time and sometimes we feel down and we also think that it’s a bad thing to feel demotivated or down. Well, as a normal human being we can not be motivated all the time and of course there would be times where we are down. we should not think of it as a bad thing rather we should monitor our thoughts as to why we feel down in the first place.

feeling downIn the book “The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment” the author Eckhart Tolle talks about the mind and how it is a different entity altogether. One of his famous quotes is “we are not our mind”. He suggests that we should monitor our thought patterns and acknowledge the variations in our thoughts, in simple terms be a watcher of our mind, because then we would realize why we feel down in the first place and only after that we could work on it.

So it’s OK if you are feeling bad or down, first acknowledge it and then watch it to find the patterns like this to work on it so that you could eliminate it for the good.

Thank you,

  1. “You are not your thoughts” is a very powerful sentence that he’s said. It changes everything. Eliminates the identification, the guilt, shame or any other emotion associated with it. And what are we if not our minds? The one who observes that! Excellent 🙂 I wrote a post a few days back that resonates with this: have a look if you’re interested 🙂 https://timelesswheel.wordpress.com/2016/01/12/the-now/
