After years of meditation, I have finally reached a point — that I can actually hit most of the time — of an observer inside my own head. I can watch the constant flow of thoughts and emotions (although, they might be the same thing, it turns out), and it’s amazing how much crap one’s head and heart are constantly putting out. So much of it is nonsense!

Now I have emotions and thoughts, rather than them having me. A totally unexpected result of this is that my productivity is soaring. Relieved of the need to pay attention to all that crap, I can focus on getting stuff done.

It feels, for the first time in my 62 years, like I’m finally able to get out of my own way.

It’s much better.
