"You and I are not what we eat; we are what we think."
~ Walter Anderson ~
We have a fearful thought and suddenly
We are gripped by fear of the possibility of it,
And our gripping grows it.
Additional thoughts stack on top of the original one.
Until we become tense and stressed out.
Time passes and the fearful happening doesn't happen,
But we have moved on to new thoughts that grip us,
And remain tense.
I detach from my thoughts and relax, observing how they come and go.
