Mind Games


While sadness seemed to rule the day last week, I woke up this morning with a physical feeling of energy swirling in my belly.  What I was able to notice was my mind went to that sensation and asked it, “what is that you are feeling?” My mind immediately said sadness.  Then the observer in me said, “are you sure that is sadness?  Could it be something else?”  My mind stood in stunned silence?  Something else?  Could that be possible?  We have always thought that was sadness… The sensation continued on its own until it was finished.  The mind had no name for it; it was just energy, now undefined.  I had a huge chuckle at the mind games, my mind plays on itself.  Could it really be so simple?
