3 Things That Change When You Stop Believing Your Own Thoughts

"A thought is harmless unless we believe it. It’s not our thoughts, but our attachment to our thoughts, that causes suffering. Attaching to a thought means believing that it’s true, without inquiring. A belief is a thought that we’ve been attaching to, often for years". - Byron Katie

What happens if you stop believing your thoughts?

1. You stop feeding drama with thoughts and words

One of the first things you notice when you stop believing your thoughts is that you are no longer replaying painful scenarios in your head over and over. You aren't anticipating conversations with people and deciding how they should play out.

You may find it is much easier to let go of your day. It becomes easier to be curious about things that happen in your life. You could ask how an event brings you closer to awakening. You stop believing your story, which is usually told with all your conclusions rather than the observable experience.

2. You stop blaming or judging.

When you stop believing your thoughts, you realize that right or wrong are also thoughts and beliefs. You can stop beating yourself up for not living up to standards (thoughts) you held for yourself. You let yourself stop trying to be perfect - defined as always being some standard you set for yourself consciously or not.

Then you can stop judging others. You can look at the belief triggered by another instead of blaming the other. You might still be unable to go to their world but you don't need to judge, be angry or afraid of what they could take from you - like showing you that you aren't whatever you believe you need to be to be loved.

"Placing the blame or judgment on someone else leaves you powerless to change your experience; taking responsibility for your beliefs and judgments gives you the power to change them." - Byron Katie


3. You no longer suffer because you want something different than what is

The biggest source of suffering comes from resisting what is, and comparing it to what you wish. When you stop believing your thoughts, you stop creating an alternative to what is. You realize that what is happening is exactly as it should be, and it has always been this way.

"I am a lover of what is, not because I'm a spiritual person, but because it hurts when I argue with reality." - Byron Katie

The best part? You can relax. You don't have to control everything and everyone. The universe becomes a loving place instead of a human version of Whack a Mole, with unexpected impossible challenges.

Little by little, you release a bit more and become more aligned with what's true.
