You know these situations: you just can’t fool yourself – you are annoyed and you have a good reason to be annoyed. Your mind focused on the issue, you feel accordingly and you don’t want to fool yourself, pretend it wouldn’t bother you.
How about this: remember your mind is an “organ” it is not yourself – a thinking device. Your emotions are a “chemical reaction” reaction to that something that bothered you. And now comes your “true self” this unique energy, essence of you – imagine, you are more than body and mind and you are not the horse but the rider that can decide and direct in every moment to change. It is not easy because we tend to identify with our thoughts and feelings, but it works!
