Your mind does not have your best interests at heart, it seeks only to suck your attention into its stories as a flower turns to absorb the sunlight.
Mind is wonderfully skilled at sucking you in, but it has no agenda, no plan beyond keeping itself alive.
The pit that is mind can be your dwelling place for life, or else you can learn to live, to truly be alive, in this instant.
Breathe consciously and you are alive once more. Let thought be thought, and embrace feeling this breath, being here in this moment.
Welcome back. You are alive.
