No complex answer needed, you took my breath away by simply saying you have had thoughts such as these as well. I have searched for guidance from friends or family and although most of them were attentive no one understood and couldn’t grasp what was going on inside. Though it is probably different in ways for both you and I to know I am not alone is a relief for me as well.
If you ever have any of your own thoughts or problems about this that you cannot bring an answer to please ask. There is power in numbers especially with those who directly know or understand. I do hope Matt’s words may also help you as they have helped me.
I very much appreciate the suggestion on this book, it seems reading about mindfulness is a useful tool to reach it. I really think using both meditation and reading will bring to be mindful in a matter of time.
As for my life on autopilot, the times I found myself reflecting were usually as soon as I was removed from the moment and alone. As time went on and I became more conscious on how I was acting I could actually hear and feel myself on auto pilot in the moment but didn’t know how to escape it.
Your answer really took me to a place of hope, and opened my eyes to a bigger perspective. I am sad to say I live in a small town where sanghas are not present but needless to say my path to mindfulness will begin regardless.
Though I am nervous to start I am ready and I greatly thank you for your insight.
