See thoughts as JUST thoughts
We have a tendency to ‘think’ that thoughts are ‘who we are’. “I think therefore I am”. This is one reason we get so caught up in them.
Try seeing your thoughts AS thoughts. Observe them coming and going (don’t judge them ‘good’ or ‘bad’ just observe).
Imagine them drifting in and out like clouds.
Notice how they build up or change direction or drift from one topic to another.
Be aware of the gap (silence) BETWEEN each thought.
And then just let them be.
