Monday Motivator: Your Next Thought

Monday Motivator Motivation Quote“Try a little experiment.

Close your eyes and say to yourself: ‘I wonder what my next thought is going to be.’

Then become very alert and wait for the next thought. Be like a cat watching a mouse hole. What thought is going to come out of the mouse hole? Try it now.”

— Eckhart Tolle, quoted in A Buddhist Psychiatrist Explains Why Meditation Isn’t About Relaxing by Gigi Falk

Is it going to be a thought that’s a glimpse of light in the darkness, or darkness overloading the light?

If I add the word “colour”, what’s your next thought?

Bet it wasn’t “black”.

  1. My first thought was not a word. It was a vision of a crystal prism in sunlight … exploding with color!
