A bird drops a fig seed into the top of a tree and the fig starts to grow… with it’s roots gradually enveloping the living tree and living off it as a parasite. Eventually the fig roots reach the ground and the original tree is fully surrounded and it dies.
Sometimes our thoughts, and emotions are like this strangler fig. They totally envelop you. Things like anger, depression, anxiety, pain can envelop and overwhelm you until your real self is almost dead inside.
The thing is to step away from this… start to observe your thoughts and feelings and see them as just thoughts that are enveloping you. These are not anything real and substantial – only thoughts! Yes even pain is a habit after around 6 weeks and you can learn to turn it off.
Avoid getting caught up in dramas – again they can be stepped away from.
You can start to become aware of these thoughts and dramas yourself and step away, but if they are too overwhelming give me a call o 08 8365 9513 because I can help you
