Thank you for this piece Ayodeji ! I am compelled to share that my own path to happiness came in the form of seeing the nature of thought that creates our psychology. I was reading a book by Jamie Smart recently where he points out the difference between an intellectual understanding and an embodied understanding as being like the difference between faking a cold and catching a cold. When we truly embody an understanding change becomes effortless. In other words when we can see the thought created nature of our experiences and as you point out, see the choice between believing our thoughts and discarding them, everything changes. We no longer live in the misunderstanding that our experiences are created from the outside-in. We see the inside-out reality of how we create every experience through the lense of our thinking. ❤️
P.S. You are a beautiful writer!
