Getting caught up in self-referential thinking can get in our own way. Meditation can help us get out of our own way. Reality is so much more delicious than our concepts of it. What we’re learning from neuroscience is how to develop tools to help people learn and really see what it’s like when they get out of their own way and into the flow of life.
This flow business is tricky business. We can all taste flow in moments of our lives, but how can we learn to get into it more and more? What’s it like when we get caught up in thinking? How is it different than just noticing thoughts come up? How can we notice our body sensations come up that are trying to tell us to do things and just be with them?
When we can get out of our own way, we’re happier and more engaged with the world, we’re more compassionate, and as a result we can perform at our best. We all are awesome we just have to get out of our own way.
