We are allowed to think!
Thinking clearly is seeing clearly.
Obsessing about the thought is distracting and confusing,
and gives rise to negative emotions.
We fixate, and so don’t see clearly,
and this brings us down.
It also brings others down.
If a thought doesn’t satisfy, look again;
another thought will arrive.
If that thought doesn’t satisfy, look again;
another thought will arrive…
All it is, is question and answer.
Knowing when to stop is wisdom.
Always stop at wisdom.
Wisdom is pure awareness.
There are some things we just cannot do anything about,
such as pious people*.
All we can do is 🙂 and quietly walk away.
*Pious: devoutly religious, constituting a hypocritical display of virtue. Hopeful and sincere, but unlikely to be fulfilled.
