Believing each and every thought and the belief that a someone called Margaret is the thinker of them is a strong well run in habit.What is the best way to stop this, because there is no self, I have no doubts about this and there is certainly something different in 'me', I have a much lighter feeling overall. But the thoughts keep on coming?
It's weird, how thoughts are powerless and yet manage to maintain such an illusion!
Can there be a thought "This is totally ennoying"? Oh yes, but no one is thinking it, there is just a thought habit playing out.
Can there be a thought "This has to stop!"? Oh yes, but there is no one to stop it, no one who has a need to stop it.
Well, you don't find this entity that thinks thoughts to be annoying and you don't find someone who wants to stop it, or?
Just more and more thoughts.
Once it is seen that the self, I, Margaret are just part of a story told, like in a book or film, everything can happen. Thoughts can shut up or give a big show, identification show up, more beliefs connected to the belief in self turn up and so on. It can be easy and beautiful, it can be hard work or anything in between. It is like an unravelling and there might still come up some resistance. All is fine.
For most of us thoughts go on doing what they do, tell stories. With the time, the belief in thoughts wanes more and more and drops more and more, which does quieten thougth.
Right now, use humor! There is no difference in being entertained by watching a film/story, or reading a book or watching thoughts. A good story is a good story.
Don't resist anything.
Anyway, this won't last.
A lighter feeling sounds nice, have a look what else changed or is changing. What about relationships or the way you act in certain situations? Change can be subtle.
