The Mind is Playing Tug of War


Elephant and hippo playing tug of war

The egoic mind is playing with attention. (sort of)


The mind, which is not you (it is only a part), which is not at all self- aware, is playing with your attention; with everyone’s attention.


Watch it as it attempts to pull your attention to the past or the future. As you, the awareness, remains in the present moment, watch the mind in its attempts to pull you out of the present moment.


Is it reminding you of all the things you have to do today?


Is it thinking about something that happened last week, last year, this morning?


Is is wondering why you are reading this instead of doing something else?


What is it saying at this very moment? Stop reading for a few moments and watch it.
