“If your mind keeps filling with thoughts, just watch that, make that okay. As the thoughts pop in, just step back and observe that this is happening. Do not think about it, just notice it. Do not think about what you are thinking about. Just step back and notice it. Don’t judge it. Don’t get frustrated by it. Don’t start talking with yourself about it, like “Well, here we go again! All I get is thoughts! When do I get to nothingness?”
You can’t get to nothingness by continually complaining that you are not there. When a thought pops in – some extraneous thought about nothing in particular, having nothing to do with the present moment – just notice that. Notice that, and bless it, and make it part of the experience. Don’t dwell on it. It’s part of the passing parade. Let it pass.”
God, as spoken to Neale Donald Walsch, “Friendship with God”
