    Just Stop

    All these thoughts whirling around in your head
    The whys and hows and what ifs
    The past regrets and plans of the future
    The shoulds and the should nots
    Just stop

    Stop holding on to them
    Stop giving energy to them
    Stop indulging them
    Stop pushing them away
    Stop trying to fix them
    Just stop

    There’s nothing to be figured out
    No puzzle piece that needs to be found
    No magical understanding which will make all of this make sense
    Let go of all these thoughts
    Keep letting go all day long

    Abide in that which is aware of all these thoughts coming and going
    Stay there
    Stop going to the thoughts as if they’ll be the answer
    Stay where you are
    Could it be so simple?
