Eckhart quotes another, a quote which I was reluctant to use because it involves thinking itself, “Can you really know that?” Meaning, of a particular thought: Can I really know what that thought is telling me? Very useful when superstitious, envious or suspicious thoughts take over. Better productive thought replace destructive. However, I wouldn’t use it except when my thoughts override my presence and I can’t rein them in.
Often when the painbody takes over and we conceive of others wrong doing us, it can often feel the ultimate loss to allow this disrespect. There is a certain urgency about the painbody, and in that state we often forget that being in the present moment and bringing awareness to our state will cause it to pass, – after a period of uncertainty – and the flux of form itself will turn our situation back to positive again.
