Turn the Light On

“A strong emotion can grab any little piece of information and build a story on top of it that keeps feeding its intensity. The mind is quick to jump into its imagination simply to keep the heavy reaction going. When the mind is in the midst of turbulence, it becomes easy to drop logical and sensible thinking.” — Yung Pueblo 

What can be done in the midst of a storm such as this?

We can learn how to see clearly.

When we can see clearly, when we understand what our minds are doing, the storm has less power over us. From amidst the turbulence of our own making, all we need to do is remember to turn on the light, the light of awareness.
