Yoga Sutra 1.9

1.9 Imagination creates information which when pursued, has no basis in fact.

This is something that I try to keep in mind at all times. My mind can tell me all kinds of crazy things. That I’m alone, not loved, the only one that feels the way I do, meditation won’t help, eating that extra cookie will… The list goes on. Recognizing that my mind creates information with no basis in fact is very reassuring. I don’t have to identify with the garbage in my mind. I can just accept my mind as it is and seek truth and understanding.

Today I won’t pursue insanity. Instead I will seek truth beyond my thoughts.
