Exercise: Who’s thinking?
Experiment with challenging the automatic assumption, “I am the one who is thinking”.
As thoughts come and go, can you let go of your ownership claim?
Can thoughts arise and pass away in somewhat the way an itch arises and passes away, or a fly lands on the back of your hand?
What obstacles to this way of seeing arise?
Are you making commitments to your thoughts that make it difficult to approach them in a neutral way?
