Why You Should Not Overthink

We cannot see our reflection in running water. It is only in still water that we can see. The same is true with mind, when you are quiet your thoughts and you often see much more clearer. When you over think, You give your thoughts too much freedom to control the state of your mind. We all tend to give our thoughts a certain power because they appear to be so true and accurate. But, given enough energy, our thoughts run rampant and start turning negative. And then the trouble begins. Negative thoughts lead to negative feelings which in turn lead to misery.

The path to happiness starts from understanding the root cause of suffering. Man is the result of his thoughts. If we speak or act with an evil thought, pain follows him. If one speaks or acts with pure thoughts, happiness will follow him like his shadow. like a shadow. So learn to acknowledge your thoughts, if they are getting out of control, stop them.

Take a deep breath and bring your focus back to the present. Give yourself permission to let it all go and not think about the past, the future, about anything. Right now is the moment, live it now. The way we think, breathe, and use our body plays a major role in our creation of suffering and stress. Indeed we can say that stress is caused by excessive thinking, tense muscles, and a lack of sufficient oxygen to fuel our system.

Right or wrong, good or bad, easy or difficult, are all created by our thinking. When we view the world with a sense of opposition the world appears to conspire against us. People desire many things ; fame, fortune, power, and success. All of this desire comes from a failure to notice what we do have ; the essence of who we are.

When we're at peace with who we are we're not attached to winning or losing, succeeding or failing. When we are not too attached to the results, our body stays relaxed, we breathe freely and easily.
